This is the companion-volume to "The Traditional Text of the Gospels Vindicated and Established." Miller continues to present Burgon's defense of the traditional (Byzantine) text. The Westcott-Hort text, and the assumptions used by Hort, are frequently targeted. Burgon affirms the existence of orthodox corruptions, something which was denied by Hort but which is routinely granted by most modern-day textual critics of the New Testament.
Appendix 1 is a defense of John 7:53-8:11, the "Pericope Adultera."
