But none that jumps out to get your attention?
There are a few.
I realize there are lists but I just don't see one, maybe you can, otherwise I would just figure no, there isn't.
The following verses are NIV translations (2011, newest one from biblegateway.com) of anthropos collected from the Gospel of Matthew (there are more,
I'm sure you can retrieve them yourself). If you compare the 2011 version of NIV with the 1984 version of Revelation 13:18, you will see that NIV has
"man's number" in the 1984 version, while the 2011 version has "number of a man". This only shows how it is impossible to have one translation, one
needs to research and compare different versions and editions, study the texts yourself and pretty much "gird up the loins of your mind" so to speak,
to come to a conclusion or what sounds right to you. I have underlined the places in the texts where anthropos is translated "a man":
Matthew 8:5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed,
suffering terribly.” 7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?” 8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under
my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man
under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this
one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
Matthew 9:9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man
named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and
Matthew got up and followed him.
Matthew 9:32 While they were going out, a man
who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus. 33 And when the demon was driven
out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.”
Below is a wikipedia page explaining the vast amounts of manuscripts the are around for researchers to pick and choose from, delivering a complete
Bible is the result of hundreds of researchers working around the clock, sifting through documents and lexica, dictionaries, performing deep exegesis
and hermeneutics on contemporary texts and traditions, and then you have agendas and politics, doctrines and dogma. Well, to say the least, it's a
bleeding nightmare of a minefield. A single letter or dot can change the whole Bible, or as the saying goes: a single straw can break the camel's
back, or how John warns us of in his Apocalypse 22:19 (choose version, there are many variants
