Description

The group was discovered by Hermann von Soden and designated by him with symbol Kx. The only distinction von Soden made among Kx members was according to the presence and type of the Pericope adulterae. Due to the massive influence od the group on other groups and its lack of control, the boundaries of group remain blurred.[3] The most problematic is the question, how many Kx readings can be missing and how many surplus readings can be added before a manuscript no longer deserves to be classified as Kx?[3]

The group profiles of Kx in Luke 1, 10, and 20 proposed by Frederick Wisse are (the word before the bracket is the reading of the UBS edition; the readings which are not bold are those of the TR):

  • Luke 1:10ην του λαου] του λαου ην
  • Luke 1:44 — εν αγαλλιασει το βρεφος ] το βρεφος εν αγαλλιασει
  • (Luke 10:3) — ημελλεν ] εμελλεν
  • Luke 10:6εαν ] μεν
  • Luke 10:8ην ] δ'
  • Luke 10:12λεγω ] λεγω δε
  • (Luke 10:30) — εκδυσαντες ] εξεδυσαν
  • Luke 10:36πλησιον δοκει σοι ] δοκει σοι πλησιον
  • (Luke 10:39) — τον λογον ] των λογων
  • Luke 20:1 — αρχιερεις ] ιερεις
  • Luke 20:5δια τι ] δια τι ουν
  • Luke 20:9 — τις ] omit
  • Luke 20:19 — τον λαον ] omit
  • Luke 20:28Μωυσης ] Μωσης
  • Luke 20:31 — ωσαυτως ] + ως αυτως
  • Luke 20:31επτα ] επτα και
  • Luke 20:32 — υστερον ] + παντων
  • Luke 20:35 — γαμιζονται ] εκγαμιζονται (ΤR reads: εκγαμισκονται)
  • (Luke 20:37) — Μωυσης ] Μωσης.[6]

According to von Soden the group Kx in the 10th century evolved.

The group probably evolved from Family E. The text of the group is not so easy to distinct as groups Kr and K1. Von Soden included to this group these Kappa manuscripts, which are not classified as Kr or Ki.[3]

The Textus Receptus was created on the basis of the manuscripts of this group.
