Hello! :)

I need some help regarding the Critical Apparatus, both in NA27 and UBS4. Is there a guide that will help me understand the Apparatus in these editions, like a "Guide for BHS" in Platinum? Or the best/only way is to refer to the "Introduction" pages in these Bibles? I have read some forums on SESB that contains all these. Anyone that purchased SESB - can you please let me know if you hover your mouse over the Apparatus, will it show all the details in 'detail'? 

Please let me know, if there is a guide, besides, purchasing the SESB :) or any suggestions!

Thanks so much for your help!!! :)

Joel

The front matter in both the NA27 and the UBS4 gives a thorough accounting of how to read the apparatus. I do believe that the SESB does have popups, how complete they are I don't know. I don't have the SESB but it has been reported on other threads that the introductions are present in those versions. I have not come across any Guide to the NA27 in my studies. Personally, I've found the introductions to be satisfactory to figuring out the apparatus.Alternatively some of the introduction works on Textual criticism might offer some assistance to deciphering the apparatus.

Joel, especially in the introduction to the Majority Text, which I see little to no discussion about on the forum as an aside, has an excellent discussion and key to its apparatus.
