The Reading Culture of Early Christianity From Spoken Words to Sacred Texts 400,000 Textual Variants 02

Dutch Philosopher and NT Textual Scholar Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam

It is often argued by the Textus Receptus Onlyists and the King James Version Onlyists that there are thousands of differences between Codex Vatican and Codex Sinaiticus. John Miller on Social media makes a typical comment: “You think the TR is corrupt? What about the ~3500 differences between Vaticanus and Sinaiticus just in the gospels alone? The Critical Text is the corrupt one!” Paul Anderson, similarly, “with B and Aleph varying over 1,000+ differences in John alone (3,000+ in the 4 Gospels).”

What Do We Know About the Dutch Bible and Textual Scholar Erasmus of Rotterdam?

A quick response would be that they are very much mistaken and doing exactly what Agnostic NT Textual scholar Bart D. Ehrman does, misrepresenting the information. Miller’s comparison is like me saying a person who steals a radio from Walmart is the same as the man who murders 20 people and trying to say they are both criminals.

THE Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus differences are insignificant in the extreme. A large number of these differences are due to iotacisms and variants in transcribing Hebrew names. Others are because two of the scribes were bad spellers. They are nothing and much was corrected by the more competent scribe and the corrector.


THE TR, on the other hand, has whole phrases, sentences, verses and even whole sections added. Plus textual changes for theological bias. Let’s not even mention the end of revelation. Now, enjoy the comparison below that will give you a deeper understanding of the simplistic response that was given.

Bible and Textual Scholar Desiderius Erasmus Who Gave Us the King James Version New Testament

Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus, two of great uncial codices, representatives of the Alexandrian text-type, are considered excellent manuscript witnesses of the text of the New Testament. Most critical editions of the Greek New Testament give precedence to these two chief uncial manuscripts, and the majority of translations are based on their text. Codex Vaticanus dates to about 300 to 325 C.E. and is identified by the (03, B). Herein, we will use the capital B. Codex Sinaiticus dates to about 330 to 360 C.E. and is identified by (01, א) What looks like a squiggly x is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet א (ʼAleph). We will use א to identify Codex Sinaiticus herein. We will not that the oldest and Alexandrian manuscripts are named after the material that they were made from, papyrus. So, for example, Papyrus 75 has the identifying symbol the Gothic P and a superscript number (P75). We will just use the regular English font P75.

CODEX VATICANUS: Why Is it a Treasure?


The King James Version Onlyist argues that there are many differences between these two manuscripts. According to Dean Burgon: “It is, in fact, easier to find two consecutive verses in which these two MSS differ the one from the other than two consecutive verses in which they entirely agree.”[1] See Matthew 1:18-19 below as a perfect example.

This is simply an exaggeration and a misrepresentation of the evidence. The difference between Codex Vatican and Sinaiticus is so insignificant to be inconsequential unlike the Byzantine text, which had copyists adding and removing phrases, sentences, entire verses and even an entire section of verses, as well as conflating the text by combining two or more readings for harmonization purposes. A few examples of the differences between the Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus will suffice to show the insignificance. Spelling differences Ζαρε (ZerahB, supported by P1 and Ζαρα (Zerahא.

CODEX SINAITICUS: One of the Most Reliable Witnesses to the Greek New Testament Text

For most of the New Testament, Codex Sinaiticus is in general agreement with Codex Vaticanus Graecus 1209 and Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus, attesting the Alexandrian text-type. A notable example of an agreement between the Sinaiticus and Vaticanus texts is that they both omit the word εικη (‘without cause’, ‘without reason’, ‘in vain’) from Matthew 5:22 “But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment.”


In John 1:1–8:38 Codex Sinaiticus differs from Vaticanus and all other Alexandrian manuscripts. It is in closer agreement with Codex Bezae in support of the Western text-type. For example, in John 1:4 Sinaiticus and Codex Bezae are the only Greek manuscripts with textual variant ἐν αὐτῷ ζωὴ ἐστίν (in him is life) instead of ἐν αὐτῷ ζωὴ ᾓν (in him was life). This variant is supported by Vetus Latina and some Sahidic manuscripts. This portion has a large number of corrections. There are a number of differences between Sinaiticus and Vaticanus; Hoskier enumerated 3036 differences: [2]

  • Matthew: 656
  • Mark: 567
  • Luke: 791
  • John: 1022
  • TOTAL: 3036

 A large number of these differences are due to iotacisms and variants in transcribing Hebrew names. These two manuscripts were not written in the same scriptorium. According to Fenton Hort Sinaiticus and Vaticanus were derived from a common original much older source, “the date of which cannot be later than the early part of the second century, and may well be yet earlier.”[3]

4th ed. MISREPRESENTING JESUS The Complete Guide to Bible Translation-2

Iotacism or itacism is the process of vowel shift by which a number of vowels and diphthongs converged towards the pronunciation in post-classical Greek and Modern Greek. The term “iotacism” refers to the letter iota, the original sign for, with which these vowels came to merge. The alternative term itacism refers to the new pronunciation of the name of the letter eta as [ˈita] after the change.

Example of differences between Sinaiticus and Vaticanus in Matthew 1:18–19:

Codex Sinaiticus (01, א)

Codex Vaticanus (03, B)

18 του δε ι̅υ̅ χ̅υ̅ η γενεσις ουτως ην μνηστευθεισης της μητρος αυτου μαριας τω ιωσηφ πριν η συνελθειν αυτους ευρεθη εν γαστρι εχουσα εκ π̅ν̅ς̅ αγιου

19 ιωσηφ δε ο ανηρ αυτης δικαιος ων και μη θελων αυτην παραδειγματισαι εβουληθη λαθρα απολυσαι αυτην

18 του δε χ̅υ̅  ι̅υ̅ η γενεσις ουτως ην μνηστευθεισης της μητρος αυτου μαριας τω ιωσηφ πριν η συνελθειν αυτους ευρεθη εν γαστρι εχουσα εκ π̅ν̅ς̅ αγιου

19 ιωσηφ δε ο ανηρ αυτης δικαιος ων και μη θελων αυτην δειγματισαι εβουληθη λαθρα απολυσαι αυτην

Scribes Correctors for Sinaiticus

A Modern analysis identifies at least three scribes:

  • Scribe A wrote most of the historical and poetical books of the Old Testament, almost the whole of the New Testament, and the Epistle of Barnabas
  • Scribe B was responsible for the Prophets and for the Shepherd of Hermas
  • Scribe D wrote the whole of Tobit and Judith, the first half of 4 Maccabees, the first two-thirds of the Psalms, and the first five verses of Revelation

Scribe B was a poor speller, and scribe A was not very much better; the best scribe was D.[4] Metzger states: “scribe A had made some unusually serious mistakes.”[5] Scribes A and B more often used nomina sacra in contracted forms (ΠΝΕΥΜΑ contracted in all occurrences, ΚΥΡΙΟΣ contracted except in 2 occurrences), scribe D more often used forms uncontracted.[6] D distinguished between sacral and nonsacral using of ΚΥΡΙΟΣ.[7] His errors are the substitution of ΕΙ for Ι, and Ι for ΕΙ in medial positions, both equally common. Otherwise substitution of Ι for initial ΕΙ is unknown, and final ΕΙ is only replaced in word ΙΣΧΥΕΙ, confusing of Ε and ΑΙ is very rare.[8] In the Book of Psalms this scribe has 35 times ΔΑΥΕΙΔ instead of ΔΑΥΙΔ, while scribe A normally uses an abbreviated form ΔΑΔ.[9] Scribe A’s was a “worse type of phonetic error.” Confusion of Ε and ΑΙ occurs in all contexts.[10] Milne and Skeat characterized scribe B as “careless and illiterate.”[11] The work of the original scribe is designated by the siglum א*.[12]

A paleographical study at the British Museum in 1938 found that the text had undergone several corrections. The first corrections were done by several scribes before the manuscript left the scriptorium.[13] Readings that they introduced are designated by the siglum אa.[14] Milne and Skeat have observed that the superscription to 1 Maccabees was made by scribe D, while the text was written by scribe A.[15] Scribe D corrects his own work and that of scribe A, but scribe A limits himself to correcting his own work.[16] In the 6th or 7th century, many alterations were made (אb) – according to a colophon at the end of the book of Esdras and Esther the source of these alterations was “a very ancient manuscript that had been corrected by the hand of the holy martyr Pamphylus” (martyred in 309). If this is so, material beginning with 1 Samuel to the end of Esther is Origen’s copy of the Hexapla. From this colophon, the correction is concluded to have been made in Caesarea Maritima in the 6th or 7th centuries.[17] The pervasive iotacism, especially of the ει diphthong, remains uncorrected.[18]

Scribes and Correctors for Vaticanus

According to Tischendorf, the manuscript was written by three scribes (A, B, C), two of whom appear to have written the Old Testament and one the entire New Testament.[19] Tischendorf’s view was accepted by Frederic G. Kenyon, but contested by T. C. Skeat, who examined the codex more thoroughly. Skeat and other paleographers contested Tischendorf’s theory of a third (C) scribe, instead asserting that two scribes worked on the Old Testament (A and B) and one of them (B) wrote the New Testament.[20]

Scribe A wrote:

Genesis – 1 Kings (pages 41–334)

Psalms – Tobias (pages 625–944)

Scribe B wrote:

1 Kings – 2 Esdra (pages 335–624)

Hosea – Daniel (pages 945–1234)

New Testament.[21]

Two correctors worked on the manuscript, one (B2) contemporary with the scribes, the other (B3) in about the 10th or 11th century, although the theory of a first corrector, B1, proposed by Tischendorf was rejected by later scholars.[22] According to Tischendorf, one of the scribes is identical to (and may have been) one of the scribes of the Codex Sinaiticus (scribe D),[23] but there is insufficient evidence for his assertion.[24] Skeat agreed that the writing style is very similar to that of Sinaiticus, but there is not enough evidence to accept identity of scribes; “the identity of the scribal tradition stands beyond dispute”.[25]

KONSTANTIN VON TISCHENDORF: In Search of Ancient Bible Manuscripts

The original writing was retraced by a later scribe (usually dated to the 10th or 11th century), and the beauty of the original script was spoiled.[26] Accents and breathing marks, as well as punctuation, have been added by a later hand.[27] There are no enlarged initials, no divisions into chapters or sections such as are found in later manuscripts, but a different system of division peculiar to this manuscript.[28] There are plenty of the itacistic faults, especially the exchange of ει for ι and αι for ε. The exchange of ει and ο for ω is less frequent.[29]

The manuscript contains unusual small horizontally aligned double dots (so called “distigmai,” formerly called “umlauts”) in the margin of the columns and are scattered throughout the New Testament.[30] There are 795 of these to be clearly found in the text, and perhaps another 40 that are undetermined. The date of these markings are disputed among scholars and are discussed in a link below. Two such distigmai can be seen in the left margin of the first column (top image). Tischendorf reflected upon their meaning, but without any resolution.[31] He pointed on several places where these distigmai were used: at the ending of the Gospel of Mark, 1 Thess 2:14; 5:28; Heb 4:16; 8:1.[32] The meaning of these distigmai was recognized in 1995 by Philip Payne. Payne discovered the first distigme while studying the section 1 Cor 14.34–35 of the codex.[33] He suggested that distigmai indicate lines where another textual variant was known to the person who wrote the umlauts. Therefore, the distigmai mark places of textual uncertainty.[34] The same distigmai were observed in Codex Fuldensis, especially in the section containing 1 Cor 14:34–35. The distigme of two codices indicate a variant of the Western manuscripts, which placed 1 Cor 14:34–35 after 1 Cor 14:40( manuscripts: Claronmontanus, Augiensis, Boernerianus, 88, itd, g, and some manuscripts of Vulgate).[35]

On page 1512, next to Hebrews 1:3, the text contains an interesting marginal note, “Fool and knave, leave the old reading and do not change it!” – “μαθέστατε κακακέ, φες τν παλαιόν, μμεταποίει” which may suggest that unauthorised correcting was a recognized problem in scriptoriums.[36]

Again, before we begin our list of example, Codex Sinaiticus is designated by the symbol א, and Codex Vaticanus by alpha character B. The following represent scribal corrections:

  • א* – original text of Codex Sinaiticus before scribal correction(s)
  • א1 – first corrector of Codex Sinaiticus
  • א2 – second corrector of Codex Sinaiticus
  • B* – original text of Codex Vaticanus before scribal correction(s)
  • B1 – first corrector of Codex Vaticanus
  • B2 – second corrector of Codex Vaticanus
