Re: My current and still developing view of the nomina sacra.

You [Ben] did quote me, but out of context - I had hit a dead end trying to make sense of the 318, and http://earlywritings.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3149&p=114502#p114516 conveys that: Yes, dead end there. Back to Barnabas and his impossible math of 18 and 300 having anything to do with IN, wh...

Re: The peculiar case of the two masters

I doubt the earliest ones (Paul, Simon Magus) are quoting from any text. I bet the saying derived from the logoi kuriou , some of which Paul quotes and many of which found their way into different texts at some point. Are you saying you actually believe that these words were spoken by some living p...

Re: My current and still developing view of the nomina sacra.

To be fair, I was quoting your own words. You said that you hit a dead end. Yet, reading Barnabas by the system of nomina sacra , there is no dead end. It is all very clear what he is saying. I mean, nobody buys his numerology as actually signifying anything mystical about anything, but it is clear...

Re: (Lord) Jesus (Christ) (Jesus) in all Romans ff.

I read your inventory list, that reveals a rather wobbly way of handling sources indeed ... Odd how those MSS got that special treatment, and the others didn't. I can only think that it meant absolutely nothing to the scribes, but that doesn't explain why 'Jesus Christ' in the SYnoptics doesn't get...

Re: My current and still developing view of the nomina sacra.

It's funny how, with so many dead ends, people still believe there is something alive about the entire fable of nomina sacra What do you think is going on, then, with ΘΣ, ΘΥ, ΘΩ, ΘΝ; ΚΣ, ΚΥ, ΚΩ, ΚΝ; ΧΣ, ΧΥ, ΧΩ, ΧΝ; ΙΣ, ΙΗ, ΙΥ, and ΙΝ (among others) appearing all over the early manuscripts, almost a...

Re: (Lord) Jesus (Christ) (Jesus) in all Romans ff.

If you feel insecure about variation in underlying sources that partially behave as moving targets throughout the centuries, then why are you interested in biblical texts? When will you draw any conclusion, even a preliminary one? Because "The manuscripts evince a lot of variability" on frigging ev...

Re: Bethlehem / Judea / Jerusalem / Galilee / Samaritan (Samaria) in all of the NT - summary

Mark has a lot of Jerusalem and a lot of Galilee, which is interesting, certainly when seing that he has almost no Judea. No Samari(t)a(ns) either, nor Bethelehem of course Matthew has only one, hostile, use of Samari(t)a(ns) and doesn't really differ from Mark. Luke and John? Wow - they're flooded ...
