Jump To ECM Entry Online Commentary Introduction
Decision based on clear GC (b<c, c<a, d<c), where TP alone suggests another guess.
Here and elsewhere in Acts the attestation gives us good reason to prefer τε to δε as the particle which connects sentences. However, the alternative suggested by the tradition usually is δε. Here the majority reading has preceding και instead of postpositive τε. At any rate, GC with c confirms once again that the author likes τε as a connector. The weak link in the attestation is 35 whose first potential ancestor supports a.
