Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

Gday Jax, Hope you're well :) I think that 1Co. 14:34-35 is all but a slam dunk for most critical scholars now days. Haven't seen you around for a while; good to see you posting. What do you think of my list? Well, I pop in for a gander from time-to-time, but I've mostly moved on to other topics of ...

Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

Gday Ben,

Thanks for those :) I thought it was worth a mention for anyone who may not have seen it, due to it's direct relevance on 1 Cor. 14:34-35. Seems like Payne has looked into that passage in depth.

I just found that distigme-obelos in my copy of 'B' - how thrilling.

Re: Deconstructed Letters of Paulos

Gday Jax and everyone :) Did you see this relevant article by Philip B. Payne from New Testament Studies ? He calls that little marker doodad a ' distigme-obelos '. Vaticanus Distigme-obelos Symbols Marking Added Text, Including 1 Corinthians 14.34–5 Abstract : "The two-dot-plus-bar ‘distigme-obelos...

Re: Ultimate Ascension of Isaiah thread

Ohayo GakuseiDon and all :) Just had a Jungian gold-bug moment which I thought I'd share - Around the time I caught this thread, I was also looking into the Song of Roland , (an epic poem about a battle from Charlemagne's time, but written a few centuries later, just before the first Holy Grail lite...

At least for a moment I'm sure I'm not deterring anyone, but maybe someone else who reads the thread doesn't swallow the story told herein hook, line and sinker.
You've done good work,
it doesn't look like anyone here believes any of their nonsense about colour changes.

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

Gday all, Some more thoughts on sheep genetics (hey, I'm from Oz, sheep are important to us - you know they say 'Australia rides on the sheep's back', right ? TBH they're a little awkward travelling to work on, but the good news is that they can fit 16 lanes across the Sydney harbour hyperpotamus, 2...

Re: Codex Sinaiticus - the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus

Gday all :) As you pointed out, you might easily find flora and fauna that really fits one scenario over another. Presumably you mean that the DNA of sheep/lambs may be different between the 1st century vs the 19th century, right ? So that a DNA test revealing the vellum of Sinaiticus was from the 1...
