Re: Coloring the Truth: Sinaiticus

Bill Brown tries to make a couple of points on a forum where it is hard to have real conversation. This is the post, #129 that has a couple of points to address: Simonides reports on Sinaiticus before the supposed red cloth Tischendorf discovery https://forums.carm.org/vb5/forum/theology/general-chr...

Re: That Sinaiticus Show

Yw. I should consider extracting the highlights of the thread. James McGrath made a legitimate contribution, and a poster or two on the more skeptical side was refreshingly honest about the probability question on the words 1 Timothy 5:8 being compared to the Luke verse. And we went over 5 or 10 arg...

Re: That Sinaiticus Show

Here is a post where I discussed Paul quoting Luke as scripture in 1 Timothy 5:18 [XTalk] Re: Dating of Mark Steven Avery - Sept 17,2005 https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/crosstalk2/conversations/topics/19565 There was actually some good support for Paul-Timothy-Luke reference, based on the samene...

Re: That Sinaiticus Show

We had a fine discussion of this on Xtalk back in 2005, on yahoogroups, still online.

Off-topic and a diversion on this thread.

Re: That Sinaiticus Show

Sort of a silly waste-of-time comment - especially since I accept the authorship attribution of the Pastorals.

the Zosimas project

You are wrong. It happens. That is why you offer nothing on the actual specifics. There are other areas where we are working harder :) , as with Zosimas, especially since folks have difficulties with evidences. So I take that exhortation in good faith. The Zosimas project is looking for the right Gr...

Re: That Sinaiticus Show

- the paper discoloration. This isn't a convincing bit of information once you consider the facts. It clearly is. The difference was clearly acknowledged by the British Library, after we found it on the CSP site, after we were led to research this based on the "white parchment" comment of Uspensky....

Re: That Sinaiticus Show

Thus your point is good, in that you are looking to see:

Re: That Sinaiticus Show

The question again is if it is just the proximity of Simonides the same argument applies to any MS from Sinai. First, the "any MS from Sinai" has to have no real provenance before being found in the mid-1800s. It can not be found in a library catalog, it can not have any notes at the Monastery, it ...

Maybe you should read the Sinaiticus material.
