This year of our Lord, 1937, bids fair to become the beginning of a third great period in the history of the Greek text of our Bible. Later generations of Bible-lovers will no doubt refer to this period of textual criticism as that of decipherment, transcription, and conservative comparison. True, this latter textual activity has been in progress for the last generation, but it becomes apparent with the wealth of material now on hand that only a modest beginning has been made. The century just ended, from 1838 to 1936, has resolved itself into an age of amazing discoveries of manuscripts that it deserves special mention and study in the annals of the Greek text.
