Re: Information Confirmation

But remember that none of the Christian MSS actually spell out IESOUS in all its forms. A nomen sacrum appears instead What examples can you give? And is this true of Paul as well? It is true that Ἰησοῦς does not appear as a fully written out name in most/all of our earliest Christian manuscripts (...

So anyway. Just to be clear. Iesous is the name. And it is the transliteration of Yeshua which is the shortened form of Yeheshua which is Hebrew for "YHVH is salvation".
Make it Yehoshua, and that is correct. :cheers:
Ahhhhh...... finally!

Thank you Ben. :thumbup:

Re: Information Confirmation

Hey guys, thanks for the responses. I really appreciate your patience and support. It really must seem like you are trying to instruct Charley Gordon in punctuation before his operashun (and often I feel like him, looking out of the dimness, sure that if only I can learn to read that I will become s...

Re: Information Confirmation

AFAIK, in the case of Paul at least, only the name Iesou is used. I think. If true, this would mean that Paul never uses Jesus as the subject of a sentence (or in any of the few other reasons the nominative is used grammatically). What information would this give you? But just a quick, informal sea...

Re: Dating Mark in 115 CE

... the point is 'sources' and their use by the likes of Eusebius (and Epiphanius) are, in my view at least, more saucy than 'sourcey' (or are even sorcery) What does "saucy" mean in this context? Added 'flavour'; and it's not always clear what all the ingredients might be and where they're from, o...

Ah, does Biblehub reflect the Alexanderian text then?
I think it uses Nestle 1904 as the base text. But Nestle 1904 is pretty Alexandrian (as are most modern texts since the days of Westcott and Hort).
Very well. I will use it instead. :thumbup:
