Shared this on a twitter thread @Riddle1689 today:
I cited this from Bruce Metzger's Textual Commentary on Rom 9:5 in my last podcast:
“In fact, on the basis of the general tenor of his theology
it was considered tantamount to impossible that Paul would have expressed
Christ’s greatness by calling him God blessed forever” (522).
Let this sink in. The majority of scholars on the committee reconstructing
the modern critical text of the Greek NT in the mid-20th century did not think
it plausible that Paul would have referred to Jesus as God.
The Greek text of the NT reconstructed by this committee became the
basis for all the modern translations of the NT based on the modern critical
text, including those used in evangelical and Reformed churches today.
This deserves serious and sober consideration in conservative
evangelical and Reformed circles.
It's time to go back to the Reformation text.
