MISINFORMATION ABOUT SCRIVENER’S TEXT

The following quote was sent to us today.  It is from an unknown source, though we seem to remember reading it somewhere on the Internet:

 

In other words, the AV does not perfectly match the TBS Greek text, which is based on Scrivener's work, who attempted to reverse engineer the AV into Greek.  He did a good job, but there are a number of places he failed.

 

We are only addressing the underlined portion of the following portion of the above quote:

 

…Scrivener's work, who attempted to reverse engineer the AV into Greek. He did a good job, but there are a number of places he failed.

 

This (the underlined portion of the above quote) is INCORRECT.  There are NOT a number of places in which he failed.  Scrivener’s work is flawless.
