Colwell’s apparatus of the Best New Testament
Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

Colwell’s apparatus was taken from the Book, “What is the Best New Testament” by E.C. Colwell, University of Chicage Press

1 Cor 14-25- “The secrets of his heart are revealed, and then, throwing himself on his face, he will worship God, and declare ‘God is indeed among you!’” (1Co 14:25 twenty)

 

Col 2-18- “Do not let any one defraud you of the reality by affecting delight in so-called ‘humility’ and angel-worship. Such a man busies himself with his visions, and without reason is rendered conceited by his merely human intellect.” (Col 2:18 twenty)

      Troy Day scholars qua scholars cannot judge inspiration. But I prefer as translators scholars without theological agenda.
