Re: Greek

...and the legend is that Alexander had 70 rabbi's do it. Not sure that is true.

Really?

I am just starting to read this topic, was that the whole NT, or just the "Gospel of Matthew?"

Re: The Four Gospels
Thanks Paul, I noticed this

quote:
Force writes:

Do you know of any respected sources that were written down during the supposed life of Jesus Christ?

There are none.

Outside of the Gospels, Jesus was invisible in history. Doesn't mean that He didn't exist of course, but it may cast doubts over His popularity, and over some of the Gospel events.


about respected sources was he replying specifically to Jesus?

I was wondering what of all literature during this time period isn't copies?

Re: The Four Gospels
I am getting lost here frako, what tablet is that?

I am sorry,

Since this was an old topic I was wondering about this discovery about the time that this topic was opened

3,000-Year-Old Text Fragment Unearthed in Israel

Yossi Garfinkel, the Hebrew University archaeologist in charge of the dig, is confident that the text is of Israelite origin. According to an AP report, “Garfinkel bases his identification on a three-letter verb from the inscription meaning ‘to do,’ a word he said existed only in Hebrew.”

Garfinkel explained, “‘That leads us to believe that this is Hebrew, and that this is the oldest Hebrew inscription that has been found.’”

If Garfinkel is correct, the shard would support the case for the Bible’s accuracy, as it demonstrates that Israelites kept written records of Biblical events as they took place.

In regards to the Codex Sinaiticus, scholars have identified four scribes as responsible for writing the Greek text.

http://www.bl.uk/onlinegallery/sacredtexts/codexsinai.html

They include the translation of the Old Testament known as the Septuagint.

Seems like a daunting task for four scribes,

Surely they were copying from some sort of ancient text.

For one volume to contain all the Christian scriptures book technology had to make a great technological leap forward. This advance was something akin to the introduction of printing with movable type or the introduction of personal computers. Whereas most previous bound books, as opposed to rolls, were relatively short and small in page size, the Codex was huge in length and large in page size.

a great technological leap forward?

curious
