Three hundred years after his birth, Johann Jakob Wettstein (1693-1754) is still an inspiring figure for students of the New Testament. After a short sketch of his life, this article focuses on the abiding importance which the large collection of comparative materials from the ancient Greco-Roman and Jewish world in his great edition of the Greek text of the NT from 1751/52, has for NT texts. Further it traces what scholars after Wettstein have achieved in this field of comparative study, with special attention for the work of the Corpus Hellenisticum Novi Testamenti and the so-called ‘Neue Wettstein’.
