Koine and Biblical and Medieval Greek • Re: Manuscript mystery from George MacDonald’s Thomas Wingfold

Having looked at the Tauchnitz New Testament that MacDonald mentions, I think that one possibility is that he means Matthew 17:21 and Mark 9:29.

Matthew 17:21: "Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting."

The apparatus lists S*V as omitting the entire verse in Matthew. It omits "and fasting" in Mark. S* marks the original reading of Sinaiticus before correction.

Looking at Tauchnitz makes me think that it would be pretty neat to have this simplified SVA-only style apparatus for a Greek New Testament. I suppose that Souter's nearly fits that bill.
