Syrian Text

One of the four different types of texts or text-families of the Greek NT distinguished by Westcott* and Hort.* A mixed text resulting from a revision made in the fourth century (cf. Lucianic Text*), it was regarded by Westcott and Hort as the furthest removed from the originals. It is best represented today by Codex Alexandrinus (in the gospels), the later uncial MSS, and the great mass of the minuscules. The Textus Receptus* is the latest form of the Syrian (=Byzantine=Koine) text.
