for the early christians these things didnt matter. most of them couldnt even read. they were getting their scriptures like everyone had been getting their scriptures for thousands of years - it was regularly read to them. they paid attention. they memorized. they meditated. they applied it to their daily lives. they didnt concern themselve with the minutia of letters. they knew about living in faith. you keep playing head games and holding to your false images of god. big difference.
