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: 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...

With "every now and then" I meant "in every other MSS", given the proficiency that your list shows of Boernerianus and Vaticanus.
Ah, I see. Yes, that makes more sense. Thanks.

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.

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: (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...
