Beyond the Impasse in NT Textual Criticism

The 21st century interlude in New Testament textual criticism continues. There are four pathways forward:

1. Byzantine priority (Byzantine exclusivism).

2. Thoroughgoing eclecticism.

3. Reasoned eclecticism (Alexandrian priority).

4. Reasoned eclecticism that uses manuscripts from all textual traditions. 

I like the latter!
