Nice would it be. But for this purpose we would need at least a second version of 
a biblic text to compare with.
Easier is to show later and datable redactional interventions here and there in 
text, but we can not state whether or not they were followed by larger 
interventions, adapting the lexic to the than contemporary norms.
