Response to Nucc's Interfered Version (the NIV translation)


Example 1

KJV Revelation 1:10-11
10 I was in the Spirit on the Lords day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last,: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

NIV 1:10-11
10 On the Lord's Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11 which said: [TEXT REMOVED HERE] "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea."
According to Biblos.Com...
It would appear as though...
The "Alpha to Omega" reading only appears...
In the Greek Manuscript referred to as the "Stephanus Textus Receptus"...
-- (And later manuscripts which were based upon it.)

However...
That phrase Does NOT appear in...
The Byzantine/Majority Text...
Tischendorf's translation...
-- from the 5th century Greek manuscript, "Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus"
-- And, the 4th century manuscript of the "Codex Sinaiticus"
Or...
The Westcott/Hort translation...
-- from the texts of "Codex Bezae", "Vaticanus" and "Sinaiticus".

In short...
It appears to be a later addition...
And NOT a part of the Original Text...
Therefore...
The argument for leaving that phrase out...
Is a lot stronger than the argument for leaving it in.

(Surely you aren't one of those "King James ONLY" people... Are you...?)
