Thread: Electronic Metzger's Textual Commentary

    Default Electronic Metzger's Textual Commentary

    http://www.logos.com/products/details/1903


    I see that Metzger's textual commentary exists in electronic form. Bibleworks people - this would be my #1 request to get into Bibleworks.

    Default Apparatus

    A greater priority for BibleWorks, I would think, would be to incorporate the apparatus for the NA27 and BHS editions into the program somehow. BibleWorks has always stressed the study of the texts themselves over commentaries on the text (unlike some other programs). I understand permission to do so has not been forthcoming. This would have to be one of the great challenges for now, in my opinion.

    Default Textual Commentary

    I agree that Metzger's Textual Commentary would be a nice tool to have in BW.

    In case you aren't aware of it, there are notes in the NET Bible that are on par with Metzger's notes. I'm not sure if the notes cover every passage that Metzger discusses or not. Also, the notes at times come to a different conclusion than Metzger suggests.

    Thumbs up NET Bible text critical notes

    The NET Bible text critical notes have been, in my experience, quite helpful. The notes are, in many cases quite extensive (see for example the tc notes on John 1:18 and 1 Timothy 3:16). Even when one does not agree with their conclusions, all sides of the issue are presented.

    Default Notes

    The NET notes are excellent, but are no comparison to Metzger's notes. e.g. NET doesn't even *mention* the tough problem at John 10:29, let alone comment on it.

    Question Concerning Metzgers Textual Commentary

    ... I do not wish to be ignorant! [to paraphrase Paul in 1 Corinthians 12]

    I own the 1971 edition, bought in college days.

    Is the 2nd edition significantly different?

    There are about 10%(?) of the variants covered only in one of the editions. Some are only in the 1st edition and some are only in the 2nd. So, if you want all of Metzger's wisdom, you need both.
    This is a major complaint I have about the second edition. Perhaps in a 3rd edition they will include also the "lost" variants from the 1st edition?
