Re: An Introduction to David Trobisch

If you are talking about the chronology, you actually quoted the response , or the post with the response. The fact that you don't like the answer is quite irrelevant. There are far more consequential elements in what was shared by Simonides and Kallinikos than whether one particular statement was c...

Re: Who axed Acts 8:37?

Not sure what is your problem, Bill.

Anyway, Maurice Robinson and William Pierpont (1915-2003) had an interesting history relating to the question as to whether 1 John 2:23b could be acceptable as a minority reading in their Greek Byzantine edition.

Wow.. 500 posts.

Re: An Introduction to David Trobisch

The real question was specifically about the date chronology, the colouring and what was spoken by Simonides.

It was not about your silly games of 20 questions.

Yes, I appreciate you acknowledging the reading found in Aleph and B as opposed to the Byzantine text is the correct reading.
Your welcome.

In fact, the strength of the Received Text on this 1/2 verse has caused difficulties for Byzantine and Majority Greek text proponents.

Re: Who axed Acts 8:37?

Here is a new reference for Acts 8:37 in the early Bibles, a solid allusion.

the textual community was played

You do not seem to understand one very basic point. If Simonides fudged or lied about some details, and said what was convenient, that does not change the basic fact that he was part of the creation of the manuscript. Tischendorf rather brazenly lied about his 1844 theft, as an example, including th...

the timing of the colouring of Sinaiticus to give the appearance of age

Let's see if I can find the post where I answered this question before. However, you can help with the exact quotes that you feel create a contradiction, and then I will respond. You could even put it on its own thread (or use one of the previous Sinaiticus threads.) The colouring of the Sinaiticus ...

Re: An Introduction to David Trobisch

The enthusiasm idea is actually floated by the Sinaiticus defenders as the reason the monks at Sinai reconstituted the whole ms. after the 86 pages were taken by Tischendorf in 1844. Even propossing a rebinding. They rather absurd idea was fabricated to reconcile the 1844 theft of supposedly loose s...

David Trobisch and the consideration of Sinaticus as 1800s

Also David Trobisch had not really considered any possibility of Sinaiticus being a modern production, and had basically passed on that question, when asked by Stephan. This is a complete misrepresentation. We were talking about the MS and he simply noted that the date given by most scholars is the...

the Philippian hymn ??

And I wonder if Bill Brown wants to offer anything of substance to the hymn discussion. What Gordon Fee wrote was quite sensible, and worth quoting. And Ben noted his previous comment along t he same line. The fact that a Pauline text has a section with "deliberate spacing and rhythm" by no means in...
