NOVATIONS TEXT TINKERED WITH - PART 1

NOVATION "TINKERED WITH"

Robert Grant on Novation:

"...Novatian finally ends his treatise with allusions to the passage in 1 Corinthians (15:24-28) that speaks of the final subjection of the Son to the Father, ‘that God may be all in all.’ His own stance is thus subordinationist and can be explained in reference to his reliance on Biblical passages. Apparently the work is difficult to interpret toward the end because a later orthodox reviser has tinkered with the text..." - (Gods and the One God. By Robert M. Grant. Library of Early Christianity. Philadelphia: The Westminster Press, 1986. Pages 159-160)

"Tinkered with the text..."

Not again!
