The two ligatures for Jesus - IS and IHS - in the Gospel of Thomas

In the following the terms ligature, nomina sacra , abbreviation, rune, encryption are inter-changable. Martijn Linssen has pointed out that there are two separate ligatures - IS & IHS - in the Coptic Gospel of Thomas. The dominant ligature is the two letter abbreviation IS . This occurs 102 tim...

Re: IS XS: No Jesus or Christ spelled out in early MSS

Jesus the Chrest – Nomina Sacra in the Nag Hammadi Library https://www.academia.edu/84288595/Jesus_the_Chrest_Nomina_Sacra_in_the_Nag_Hammadi_Library Introduction An unusually concise and even brief publication, this is a single overview of something I wrote almost a year ago: Faithfully translatin...

Re: Death by Burning, c.100-300 AD

The claim about Hilarius may be a distortion of Eunapius Where we have two passages: a/ The end of Eleusis during the invasion of Alaric Now when his studies with them were prospering, he heard that there was a higher wisdom in Greece, possessed by the hierophant of the goddesses,67 and hastened to...

Re: ⲭⲥ & ⲭⲣⲥ: The Coptic Runes of Christ in the Gospel of Philip

But as far as the transcriptions go all that can be said is SBL. Where B = Biblical and there is only One Chrestos who suffers from iotacism. Iotacism doesn't apply because both words always existed simultaneously. And I'm not talking about Philip, I am talking about Greek as a language and likely ...

Re: ⲭⲥ & ⲭⲣⲥ: The Coptic Runes of Christ in the Gospel of Philip

All of biblical academic in this regard consists of incompetent mediocrities who utterly fail to do any kind of due diligence, which in this case is extra embarrassing because manuscript and transcription are publicly available - no library loan needed, nothing; but falsifiers like Hugo Lundhaug ca...

Re: Carry your satyr in my way - permanent erection and ejaculation

Thomas calls to "Carry your satyros in my way", and that can only mean that he has a permanently erect penis - metaphysically speaking Satyr ....... = σάτυρ ος (translit. sátyros) Satirist ..... = σατυρ ιστής Are these words related? What is the Greek word for "satire" ? Was Tho...

Re: ⲭⲥ & ⲭⲣⲥ: The Coptic Runes of Christ in the Gospel of Philip

You may have missed my late edits: 1) This could not have happened without your transcription of the ligatures. Thanks for this. That all other scholars have neglected to identify what the Coptic texts actually say is negligence. 2) ETA: I am still struggling with the IS and IHS in Thomas. You menti...

Re: ⲓⲥ & ⲓⲏⲥ: The Coptic Runes of Jesus in the Gospel of Philip

The thing is, thanks for the analysis - it is valuable and helpful. Like Thomas, all Philip translations are rubbish and we can't start to read it until mine is ready. And whatever I do in the meantime is highly speculative, please do keep that in mind Do you have an ETA for Philip? But until then,...

Re: Death by Burning, c.100-300 AD

Simonides was executed (possibly on false information) for seeking to predict the replacement of Valens by another Emperor. https://lexundria.com/amm/29.1/y Here is what we have in Ammianus: 36 After the establishment of these facts, the prisoners were removed; and Eutropius, who at that time was g...
