It was a full tilt edit. How did the poor old lady giving a single copper story show up in John? It was never there before the edits. There are multiple fragments that cover the verses affected. It wasn't there before Nicea. They just paraphrased it from Mark.

If they had used a Saratoga (or any of it's sisters) it would have continued on in a straight line, leaving plastic parts in it's wake.

The bible was last edited by the council of Nicea in about 250AD. It gets re-translated regularly. Look at the various translations of 1st Timothy 2:12 for how politics can affect that. Who decided to remove 'she should be quite'?

Disraeli was pretty close: actually, there are Lies, Damn lies, Statistics, Benchmarks, and Delivery dates.
