>He would have used Codex Vaticanus if he could have seen it personally instead of being duped as well with a phony list of "365" readings from it.
Why does this guy matter exactly, just because he rushed out an early TR that was later corrected by Stephanus and Beza in their TR's before the KJV translators went back to the original sources?
If these people were able to correct Erasmus, why exactly does Erasmus decision even matter? Also that story is fake as well.
>That a printed book with them wasn't made until more recent centuries doesn't make them new.
Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.

Everyone was very aware and familiar with the true NT and all of its words long before these individuals came on the scene.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
