This confirms Colwell's urgent entreaty (made also by Zuntz) that manuscript classification not be based on divergences from the Textus Receptus. Some of this group use the same "providential preservation" argument as the first group, but they also argue that the Byzantine text, being the type found in the vast majority of manuscripts, must be original. It allows manuscripts to be quickly and easily measured against known groups. 21 But while this analogy describes the situation fairly well in general terms, we must have more precision.
