It will come as a surprise to most or all of you that there are ancient Greek New Testament text collations that, though they differ from the Textus Receptus CSR9, are usually translated identically.  This occurs because these Textus Receptus CSR9 Equivalent Texts differ only in word order and/or spelling.  HOWEVER, more rigorous translation would produce differing translations.  This is because word order affects meaning.  Word order determines emphasis in ancient Greek.  Because accurate translation would produce differing translations, the Equivalent Texts are NOT really equivalent and should be called “Textus Receptus CSR9 Quasi-equivalent Texts.”
