The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts


Dan Wallace has started a great foundation for the study of NT Manuscripts. I encourage you to visit the site here.  I’ve added it to the side bar under the abbreviation CSNTM. Here below is the “about” information from the web site:

====================

The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM), under the umbrella of The Center for the Research of Early Christian Documents (CRECD), exists for the following purposes:

  1. To make digital photographs of extant Greek New Testament manuscripts so that such images can be preserved, duplicated without deterioration, and accessed by scholars doing textual research.
  2. To utilize developing technologies (OCR, MSI, etc.) to read these manuscripts and create exhaustive collations.
  3. To analyze individual scribal habits in order to better predict scribal tendencies in any given textual problem.
  4. To publish on various facets of New Testament textual criticism
  5. To develop electronic tools for the examination and analysis of New Testament manuscripts.
  6. To cooperate with other institutes in the great and noble task of determining the wording of the autographa of the New Testament.

Codex Sinaiticus

I’ve just added a new link to the blogroll in the sidebar. The link will take you to the newly released Codex Sinaiticus Project website. These new sites are the types of things that make the Internet “worth it” more and more these days. We are now able to have access to the world’s oldest complete copy of the Greek New Testament, for free, at our home computers. We can study it and read it and just enjoy the fact that God has providentially preserved such a manuscript for us to use in translating His word into the rest of the world’s languages. God be praised!

Here is some more information about the codex and the web site. Enjoy!

Codex Sinaiticus

Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. Its heavily corrected text is of outstanding importance for the history of the Bible and the manuscript – the oldest substantial book to survive Antiquity – is of supreme importance for the history of the book.

The Codex Sinaiticus Project

The Codex Sinaiticus Project is an international collaboration to reunite the entire manuscript in digital form and make it accessible to a global audience for the first time. Drawing on the expertise of leading scholars, conservators and curators, the Project gives everyone the opportunity to connect directly with this famous manuscript.

The Codex Sinaiticus Website

This is the first release of the Codex Sinaiticus Project website. This website will be substantially updated in November 2008 and in July 2009, by when the website will have been fully developed.

Biblical Greek Bookstore!

Hello Class! I just wanted to point out to everyone that I have added a New Testament Greek Bookstore to our web site. I hope you will all check it and even consider buying a Greek Reader’s New Testament from it.

Either way, if you are going to buy anything from Amazon in the future, please buy it from this store. Even if it is not a book, you can use the Amazon search tool at the top of the bookstore page and search for whatever you want. Just make sure that when you search for something, that you are searching for it on this page when you click on the item to add it to your shopping cart. I hope that makes sense, please ask any questions if you are not sure how it works. But if you do buy from our store, you will help me out and you won’t have to pay any extra money to help me out.  🙂 You pay the same price you would pay on Amazon.com without my bookstore, so help a brother out!

Here is the link: Biblical Greek Bookstore
