Andreas J. Köstenberger, Benjamin L. Merkle, and Robert L. Plummer, Going Deeper with New Testament Greek: An Intermediate Study of the Grammar and Syntax of the New Testament (Nashville, TN: B&H Academic, 2016), 64.

The textbook reads καὶ οὐκ ἐγίνωσκεναὐτὴνἕως οὗ ἔτεκενυἱόν.1 But Matthew 1:25 in UBS5 reads καὶ οὐκ ἐγίνωσκεναὐτὴν ἕως οὗ ἔτεκεν υἱόν

The textbook reads καὶ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς τοὺς γεωργοὺς τῷ καιρῷδοῦλον (Mark 12:2)But mark 12:2 in UBS5 actually reads καὶ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς τοὺς γεωργοὺς τῷ καιρῷ δοῦλον

The textbook reads ἵνα στρατεύῃ ἐν αὐταῖς τὴν καλὴνστρατείαν But 1 Timothy 1:18 in UBS5 actually reads ἵνα στρατεύῃ ἐναὐταῖς τὴν καλὴν στρατείαν

Three very sloppy editing errors in a single paragraph! If these were isolated errors, I would simply submit a typo and read on, but I have seen other such errors, and I am only in chapter 2. Surely a spellchecker would detect such errors.

There were also additional formatting errors on this same page, all of which I think I reported as Typo.

Jack Caviness:
The textbook reads
Jack Caviness:
But ... in UBS5 reads

LOL, you are finding new textual variants, Jack. Smile

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Or maybe the textbook is just trying to help you to read P46 and Codex Vaticanus.  After all the early Greek manuscripts had no spacing between words.

That's nice, In the meanwhile, I continue to find multiple errors in every chapter, rendering the examples worthless. Frankly, FL should be embarrassed to charge money for such inferior editing. I am spending so much time submitting typos that I gain nothing from the text.

I apologize for the errors and we're working on the fix. We know the underlaying cause of the problem. We appreciate you reporting the typos but isn't necessary to report any more.

Any progress? These errors make what should have been am excellent intermediate Greek text an exercise in frustration. The examples are practically useless. If I wanted to study textual criticism, I would have used a textbook for that discipline. Such errors make Logos look cheap and not worth the cost of purchase.

Yes. It's being worked on and is scheduled to be finished in early February.
