Kristin DeTroyer and I were in Muenster to review the Institute for New Testament Text-Critical Research on behalf of the German funding agency that makes their work possible. It was an informative visit, an impressive operation, with dedicated people. Indeed, as one result of this review, I think now that I have a much better understanding of the “Coherence-Based Genealogical Method” that the Muenster Institute now uses in attempting to recapture the textual history of NT writings. In now seems to me that the basic aim and the fundamental concept are not that different from what Hort proposed and offered (1881). But computing technology now makes it possible to take a MUCH larger body of manuscripts data into account.
