A Textual Commentary On 1 Timothy 3:16

(a) In 1 Tim. iii. 16. Woide edits ΘC εφανερωθη, and he combats in his prolegomena the opinion of Wetstein, who maintained that ⲞC was the original reading, and that the stroke, which in some lights can be seen across part of the , arose from part of a letter visible through the vellum. In this, however, as the result of repeated examinations, we can say distinctly that Woide was wrong, and Wetstein was right. Part of the on the other side of the leaf does intersect the , as we have seen again and again, and which others with us have seen also. The copyist of the Codex Alexandrinus was by no means careful ; and the corrector was often as little accurate as the first scribe. In points of minute exactness this has to be borne in mind, though the value of a MS. is often in inverse proportion to the critical skill of the copyist: a scribe, if too intelligent, was always prone to make critical emendations. (S. P. Tregelles, An Introduction to Textual Criticism of the New Testament, p. 156)
