Affected Teaching
This week’s verse comes to us by courtesy of Dean Burgon. I was reading his excellent book entitled “The Revision Revised” which was printed in direct opposition to the false Greek text adopted by Hort and Westcott. Dean Burgon was a contemporary of Hort and Westcott and this book exposes their Greek text as extremely inferior by means of corruption. One of the corruptions is our verse of the week. In Acts 18:7, you will see that the modern versions all use the name “Titius Justus.” The problem is that this man does not exist. Justus exists but not Titius Justus. Dean Burgon explains that in the Vaticanus manuscript, in Acts 18:7, the words “onomati ioustou“ (onomati ioustou) were connected by means of a corruption. The words look like this”onomatiioustou.” If you notice the part I highlighted, this is the part which was taken to be the name “Titus,” (tii). These words are not supposed to be connected because in the transmission of the words in subsequent manuscripts taken from Vaticanus, the error would be perpetuated and we see this error in the English on every modern versions. In the Textus Receptus, Luke wrote only one name and that was “Justus.” This is why these modern versions are dangerous because it seems that not one of the modern translators will ever check anything out. If you have the Revision Revised, this is taken from pages 53-54.
