Greek Text Comparison, why does Stephens mismatch 100%?  That doesn't look right, although I am far from a Greek expert...

Because, if you look closely, the Stephen's text is not inflected (no accent marks, etc.). That means the text is not 'spelled' the same. As far as Logos is concerned they are not the same words if they are spelled differently.

Dominic,

In settings, you will have to set it to "Ignore Marks". Stephens has no accents or breathings which is why it is 100% different.

Ignore case

I would recommend against checking Ignore Case, if there is a case difference between Greek versions there's a good chance that's a significant difference that should get your attention.

Thanks for the info, i am not a greek student.

i just added it because in his passage, the 1st word had a case difference in the Stephen's version vs the NA27 version.
