this is the message: is it not strange that the Revisers adopt a text so ill supported as αὖτη ἐστίν (A, etc.), when there is such strong and united authority for the more emphatic ἕστιν αὔτη (א B C K L P, the mass of cursives, etc.), "And there is this message," etc.? Certainly the early editors, Erasmus, the Complutensian, and Colinaeus all give the emphatic form according to ancient authority, but not R. Stephens, Beza, and Elzevir. Was it Beza that influenced the Authorized translators in "This then?" He ventures in his notes to take καί as equivalent to οὖν where it is clear that it merely adds an entirely new subject; and this a "message," not "promise," as would be true if the text of all the older editors could stand. But it is really ἀγγελία, not ἐπαγγ., in spite of C P and some cursives. It is remarkable that our translators, in misrendering their text, stumbled on the version of the right text. (Bible Treasury 14:110)
this is the message: the true word is ἀγγελία "message," which all critics endorse, though excellent authority sustains the unquestionable error of ἐπαγγ. imported here from ch. 2:25 where it is certainly right. That this is so finds confirmation in ch. 3:11, where ἐπαγγ. occurs again in some first-rate authorities, though it really is nonsense. This is one of the cases where Colinaeus alone presents the true reading. Did the Authorized translators know this? It is curious that they should give the true sense from the false text of all the other old editions. (Bible Treasury 15:95)
