I haven't used this feature, so it's interesting to see how it works. I think the differences between BNT and WHT in Matt. 1:1, 9 have to do with the spelling of proper names (such as Δαυεὶδ with an epsilon in WHT). But where do you find the number of verses that have differences? (I know there's a d'oh in my future on this one!)
EDIT: OK, I watched the tutorial video (d'oh!) and realized I could export the list of verses with differences and then import that list into the Verse List Manager, which shows a count. Oops, d'oh! And there's the figure at the bottom of the search window verse list in the first place. Sorry. (Thanks for your quick reply, Glenn, which came while I was editing this post.)
But onward. I used this to do a comparison between BGT (which is NA27) and NA28, and found that the vast majority of the differences between the two seem to involve ἀλλὰ, where BGT prefers that form and NA28 prefers ἀλλ᾽ before a vowel. Interesting. I imported those 165 verses into the VLM, then searched BGT for all verses with ἀλλὰ, and copied that list of 414 verses into the VLM's secondary list. Highlighting and deleting the verses in common between the two lists left me with a list of 35 verses in which NA28 differs from BGT/NA27 in some way other than the spelling ἀλλ᾽. But of course that's not really the whole list, since I did see several verses in which there was that difference plus one other (2 John 5 and 12, for instance). Here it would be good to have tabiblia's wished-for listing of individual differences, not just verses; but Glenn's explanation of why this isn't, and perhaps can't, be done makes sense.
