Jude 25b

Post by grogers » March 8th, 2016, 1:36 pm

I hope I am in the right forum to ask this question.
I notice in Jude 25b there is quite a difference in the variant readings of this section.

1. The Wectcott and Hort text reads
μόνῳ θεῷ σωτῆρι ἡμῶν διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν δόξα μεγαλωσύνη κράτος καὶ ἐξουσία πρὸ παντὸς τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ νῦν καὶ εἰς πάντας τοὺς αἰῶνας· ἀμήν.

2.The Byzantine Majority Text 2005 reads
μόνῳ σοφῷ θεῷ σωτῆρι ἡμῶν, δόξα καὶ μεγαλωσύνη, κράτος καὶ ἐξουσία, καὶ νῦν καὶ εἰς πάντας τοὺς αἰῶνας. Ἀμήν.

3. The Tischendorf 8th Edition reads
μόνος θεός σωτήρ ἡμᾶς διά Ἰησοῦς Χριστός ὁ κύριος ἡμᾶς δόξα μεγαλωσύνη κράτος καί ἐξουσία πρό πᾶς ὁ αἰών καί νῦν καί εἰς πᾶς ὁ αἰών ἀμήν.

I am interest to know which of these text has the best mss authority and why.

We do not normally discuss issues of text criticism on B-Greek, only in so far as the variant reading contributes to our understanding of the text.

The Tischendorf 8th edition certainly requires imagination to facilitate understanding.
