A compilation of verses sent by Dr. Maurice Robinson to Pastor Robert Truelove of Christ Reformed Church documenting the lack of manuscript support for many of the verses included in the critical Greek text:
From a Puritan Board discussion on Dr. Robinson’s approach to textual transmission:
“Originally Posted by MW
If Dr. Robinson’s textual critical approach is correct then we have a Greek manuscript tradition and do not need to appeal to readings found outside that manuscript tradition to find “lost readings” that survived in the Vulgate to reconstruct a pure text. This would clearly mean the loss of the Comma regardless of how much Ecclesiastical tradition surrounds that text.”
In other words, Dr. Robinsons’s approach is fatal to the TR position and vice versa.”
MW further comments:
I think this requires one to put faith in Dr. Robinson’s theory to lead to a New Testament text, but this will prove as disappointing as the eclectic methods and the Alexandrian priority theory. The genealogical theory was shown to be inadequate from the beginning, going back to the early 19th century.
The same problems are indeed associated with the Textus Receptus so far as empirical observation is concerned. Empirically I could give as good account of a great diversity of readings which are to be found in the mss. The reason is, that the mind of man is finite, the evidence is quite limited, the categories for understanding the evidence are always conjectural, and man is always motivated by reasons which are not even always clear to himself.”
