The manuscripts contain many cases of accidental omission, and these are easily identifiable. For example: often the reason for the omission is evident, as with the common scribal error of skipping to the next occurrence of a repeated opening formula. In such cases the similarity has caused the scribe's eye to skip down a portion of the text.

This, unfortunatly, is in principle impossible to do since every verse that occurs in all the manuscripts could theoretically be a universal insertion. I can, however, do the second best thing to it. I can point to a concrete example that proves that universal insertion is very very likely. Consider the following. All cases in which only some of the manuscripts contain a passage can theoretically be placed along a continuum. Obviously, the fewer the manuscripts (or branches of manuscripts) in which the problem passage appears the more certain can we be that expansion has occurred.
