After that, four other factors played a part though they were not of equal status and the weight of authority varied according to churches and their leaders: The authority of Jesus.

The other, 31 less widely used and with only Isaiah completed, is the Hebrew University Bible Project*. The first two editions of Biblia hebraica (1905 and 1912), based on the second Rabbinic Bibles*, 1525, were superseded by the third edition (1929-37) edited by Rudolf Kittel (widely known as BHK), based on Codex Leningrad* (L) as providing the earliest complete codex of the Hebrew Bible. Editions since 1951 and Biblia hebraica stuttgartensia, 1977, edited by K Elliger and W Rudolph (known as BHS), contain details from the DSS* for some books, but an edition incorporating all significant readings from Qumran is not yet available.
