Textual variant in Acts 16:10

How can I best learn new vocabulary items? What aids are there and what pitfalls should be avoided? How does a beginner learn to use a lexicon?

Thanks for that. It is written in a really neat hand. Do you have any idea of what the "Lect." refers to in that transcription?

According to the transcription key:
Lect. indicates a marginal lectionary note. Mouse-over displays a box giving information about the note
But the mouse-over doesn't seem to work in Chrome.

The meaning of Lect. in D.

Okay, thanks for that. I had assumed it was referring to something in the margins, but when I saw it next the "εν βηθλεεμ της ϊουδαιας" of line 21 of the first page there (Folio 3v Quire_1-3v (hair) ) and then checked the photo and found that that line was interlined with the others, I got confused.

I see now that "Lect." Means that there is ANOTHER note written on the margin of the page, other than the New Testament text.

See the site http://www.skypoint.com/members/waltzmn ... s.html#uDe for a review of the manuscript.

F.J. Foakes-Jackson & Kirsopp Lake who authored The Beginnings of Christianity: The Acts of The Apostles in volume II (2) has the text of Vaticanus (B) and Codex Bezae (D) side by side (in miniscule). Codex Bezae is particularly embellishing in the book of Acts, not so much in the gospels.

Here is the WorldCat link for this book: http://www.worldcat.org/search?q=ti%3A% ... dblist=638
