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

While P.Oxy. 1 uses only the nomen sacrum "IS", P.Oxy. 654 contains only the nomen sacrum "IHS". In this respect, P.Oxy. 654 (dated to 3rd cent.) also differs from the Coptic Codex (dated to 4th cent.). Nag Hammadi Codex II Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 654 These are the hidden words that...

Ludwig Traube, the emperor of all Nomina Sacra

. The nomina sacra for Jesus' name in the mss. of GMark Because we are currently discussing nomina sacra of "Jesus", I'll give a brief overview of it. 1) There are three types for the name "Jesus": IS (IY in genitive and so on) - the dominant form (Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Vatica...

Re: Arguing Against

The forum has become so crazy in recent years where we are essentially arguing things that have no relationship whatsoever to texts, evidence or ancient witnesses? Is this a sign of the general decline of civilization or is it some 'step forward' that I am not entirely aware of yet? Please give me ...

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

QUESTION (1): Are the existence of the two ligatures deliberate? What is the explanation for the two separate ligatures IS and IHS - both translated as Jesus - in the Gospel of Thomas? What was the intention (if any) of the author of Thomas to use two separate ligatures for Jesus? Why bother if IS ...

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

Why bother if IS = IHS and Jesus is Jesus? Was it simply a scribal error. These things happen in almost all manuscripts . ... I hope to have explained the situation accurately. In the interim this is open for any answers to these two questions, or ideas, or comments, or criticism, or more questions...

Hugo Lundhaug Images of Rebirth: not a word on Chrestian at all

Screenshot_20220807-204010_ReadEra Premium.jpg Screenshot_20220807-204021_ReadEra Premium.jpg Line 24 contains the word, logion 6 in Philip. Not a comment, no footnote, no nothing: now why would Lundhaug not spend ANY attention to the fact that this is the only text in the world that has both XRHST...

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

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 even Coptic as a language as well Iotacism and Chrestianity or Christianity is a no go, ...

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 ment...

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,...
