Hi b-greek,

Larry gives a good explanation of the three camps, for which my preference is 3,
and I respect the closely related 2.  One grammatical comment of note :-)

Larry Baker,
>You have three camps believing that theirs is the best text:
>1) The Eclectic camp - The Nestle/Aland text - Older manuscripts are better and conclusive conjectures can be made, as to how various variant readings arose from the autograph's reading.

"conclusive conjectures" - an alliterative oxymoron ?

 From www.dictionary.com

Serving to put an end to doubt, question, or uncertainty; decisive. 

Inference or judgment based on inconclusive or incomplete evidence; guesswork.
