|Bible Question: Alright, I'm a little new. However, it seems inappropriate to me that this verse is not in the text of my NIV but listed only as a footnote. Is this an error?|
"Q. Are verses (John 5:4, Matt. 17:21, Matt. 18:11, Acts 8:37, etc.) missing?
A. No. Check the footnotes. These verses all appear as footnotes in some translations, as they are not present on the earliest or most reliable manuscripts. If you want to see these verses, be sure to either view the entire chapter, or any span of verses that includes the verse directly preceding the apparent "missing" verse.
Q. What do the footnotes NU-Text and M-text in the NKJV mean?
A. The makers of New King James Version sought to make no evaluation of readings, but simply sought to clearly indicate the manuscript source of readings. According to the New King James Version Preface:
Where significant variations occur in the New Testament Greek Manuscripts,textual notes are classified as follows:
These variations from the traditional text generally represent the Alexandrian or Egyptian type of text [the oldest, but sometimes questioned text].They are found in the Critical Text published in the Twenty-sixth edition of the Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament (N) and in the United Bible Society's third edition (U), hence the acronym "NU-text."
This symbol indicates points of variation in the Majority Text from the traditional text [a concensus of most Greek manuscripts]. It should be noted that M stands for whatever reading is printed in the published Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text, whether supported by overwhelming, strong, or only a divided majority textual tradition."
