A Teaching Exercise in Text Criticism

Kevin Wilson is collecting some neat resources for helping introduce students to biblical studies. He recently found this rather cool on-line teaching-exercise in text-criticism. It's real fun, click here.

The exercise is on a site designed by Dr. Timothy W. Seid, Earlham School of Religion. It is completely in English, and uses four simulated manuscripts of a snippet from Readers' Digest. You can divide the simulated scripto continua texts, identify the copy errors, and figure out how the four mss relate to one-another and to the original. Enjoy!
