William O. Walker, Jr., Interpolations in the Pauline Letters. Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement Series 213. Sheffield Academic Press 2001.
This book new comes in around $150, too much for most people's budgets; but exposure and analysis of Walker's arguments here is rather important, especially for those who value Majority-Text arguments.
There is a preview of portions of the book here at Googlebooks:
And a few scattered reviews, such as here:
- for convenience, here are the passages which Walker proposes are
"Professor Walker devotes a chapter apiece to discussing the debates over and the case for seeing as interpolations
1 Corinthians 14:34-35 (silencing women);
11:3-16 (the veiling of prophetesses);
2:6-16 (secret wisdom about the archons of this age and the deep things of God);
12:31b-14:1a (the "love chapter"); and
Romans 1:18-2:29 (the sins of idolaters; the parity of righteous Jews and Gentiles).
Then, more briefly, he presents the basics of the case for seeing another group of texts as interpolations, skipping the refutations and counter-refutations:
Romans 16:25-27 (the doxology);And he says, in effect, that interpolations are like cockroaches: if you can spot some, there must be a lot more lurking somewhere.
2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1 (unequal yoking with unbelievers and Beliar);
1 Thessalonians 2:13-16 (God's judgment on persecuting Jews);
Romans 13:1-7 (obey the authorities);
1 Corinthians 10:1-22 (idols are devils in disguise).
And he lists passages that have attracted scholarly stares of suspicion:
1 Corinthians 1:2; 4:17; 6:14; 7:29-31; 11:23-26; 15:3-11; 15:21-22; 15:31c; 15:44b-48; 15:56; Galatians 2:7-8; Philippians 1:1c; 2:6-7; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; 4:10b-12; 4:18; 5:1-11; 5:27.
And of course J.C. O'Neill (whose views of Romans 1:18-2:29 he accepts) posited a number of other interpolations in Romans and Galatians."
