Last-Minute Update

As with the first edition, the second edition of the ALT was going to be based on the first edition of the Byzantine text. But at the last minute, the ALT was updated to the forthcoming second edition of this Greek text.

This last minute update was made possible by Dr. Maurice Robinson. He graciously provided to this translator a list of all of the differences between the first and second editions of the Byzantine text and a list of the alternate readings that appear as footnotes in the forthcoming second edition. So it was possible for the second edition of the ALT to be based on the most up-to-date and accurate Greek text possible. Many thanks to him in this regard.

This list of alternate readings was posted on this site September 25, 2004.
