Update! Complete TC Edition & More

December 22nd, 2016

I may be cutting it quite close, but as mentioned back in April, I have managed to complete the DSS TC Edition! All Scriptural Books found among the Dead Sea Scrolls will now have their TC Editions online, both as separate books, and also in one giant TC Edition PDF File. Included in this Full publication are a small Preface, along with an Appendix regarding the text of Isaiah 61:1-2.

See the Downloads Page for the files to download/view 🙂

As with all TC Edition’s that have been completed, I end up updating most of the relevant Dead Sea Scrolls Transcriptions along with them. I did keep a ‘sort-of’ list, so may be worth re-downloading any document you’ve already had.

The list that I kept was as such:

4QpaleoDeutr; 1QDeuta; 4QDeutk2; 4QLevb; 4QLevd; 11QLevb; MasLevb; 1QIsaa; 1QIsab; 4QIsaa; 4QIsab; 4QIsac; 4QIsad; 4QIsae; 4QIsaf; 4QIsag; 4QIsah; 4QIsak; 4QIsal; 2QJer; Leviticus Parallel; Deuteronomy Parallel; Isaiah Parallel.

There is now very little I can do to assist in everyone’s DSS studies. Bar the occasional manuscript that appears once every decade or so, all of them are on TWTY for people to use for their studies!

I will be releasing them in other formats in the future (Bibleworks, E-Sword, even possible The Word), but these will be sporadic and won’t be coming forth any time soon.

I’ll also be taking a little break for at least up until the end of January. Then I will commence completing all the other projects I’ve already started (namely the Ancient Greek Papyri transcriptions & translations, as well as versions 2 and 3 of the Renewed Covenant Translation).

I have also removed a section from TWTY – and that is the Greek-English Interlinears section. I have come to understand that Interlinears don’t help – they rather hinder study, and make people think that they are translating when using an Interlinear to “assist”. They’re not; they’re mainly producing drivel. As such, I will not be producing any interlinear – ever. Plain parallel versions are fine though, so will be keeping those projects alive.

Anyway, apologies for waffling on. I shall stop 🙂

Hope everyone has an enjoyable new year, and I shall be posting again in 2017!

Well, I’m sorry that it’s been a while since the last update (March), but I’ve been working hard to sorting out this following update 🙂

Below (as well as on the downloads page), you find links to 32 new Dead Sea Scrolls Manuscript transcriptions!

These 32 are the complete collection of Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts comprising the fifth book of the Torah/Moses/Pentateuch: Deuteronomy. This now means that all the manuscripts from the Dead Sea Scrolls that comprise the entirety of the Torah are now available on TWTY – and all for free!

There is therefore now only one last book (or collection) to do: the Psalms. I’ve done four of the Psalms at the moment (4Q98f Psalmsw, 4Q98g Psalmsx, 5Q5 Psalms, and 8Q2 Psalms), leaving 34 manuscripts left to do. I hope to have them up by the end of the year 🙂

Dead Sea Scrolls: Isaiah Complete & More

July 25th, 2013

Well it’s the usual time again: more Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions!

TWTY has the final two manuscripts of Isaiah now online, plus the last three manuscripts of Jeremiah as well, bringing the total now to 31 complete books out of 38! (Remember, Esther was nowhere to be seen in the Dead Sea Scrolls – neither a manuscript of the book, nor a quotation of it anywhere in the non-Scriptural writings of the Dead Sea Sect.)

There’s also been a bit of “re-arranging” on TWTY: anything pertaining to the Renewed Covenant now appears on a collective page; anything regarding the Apocrypha or non-Canonical writings are on their own page; and there are two new sections: Septuagint and Tanakh

I’ll let you guess what the last two are in reference to 😉 (Also, there’s nothing yet on them)

Isaiah

1Q Isaiahb (1QIsab) | 4Q57 Isaiahc (4QIsac)

Jeremiah

2Q13 Jeremiah (2QJer) | 4Q70 Jeremiaha (4QJera) | 4Q72 Jeremiahc (4QJerc)

Edit: For the above, please refer to the Downloads Page.

Dead Sea Scrolls – 19 Isaiah Manuscripts + Extra

May 22nd, 2013

Well, it’s Dead Sea Scrolls update time again: I just finished uploading another 19 Isaiah manuscripts. This brings the grand total to 20, with two more to go, which I’ll be putting on hold for a bit, as I plan on getting at least one manuscript transcription of each of the other remaining books online in the upcoming future.

There are at least 7 books that I haven’t uploaded any manuscript transcription of just yet (The other remaining “Major Prophets” Jeremiah and Ezekiel; along with Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, as well as the Psalms), and as I dislike seeing the None as of yet text on TWTY’s Downloads Page, I’ll be seeking to rectify that this summer 🙂

I’ve also uploaded a new edited form of the Greek text to The Gospel of Peter, thanks to a new book I purchased recently that had an up-to-date transcription of several GoP manuscripts (Andrew Bernhard, Other Early Christian Gospels: A Critical Edition of the Surviving Greek Manuscripts (T&T Clark Biblical Studies, 2007))

As usual, find all manuscript transcriptions on the Downloads Page, plus a few quick links below 🙂

Dead Sea Scroll Isaiah Manuscripts
1Q Isaiaha (1QIsaa) | 1Q8 Isaiah (1QIsaiah) | 4Q55 Isaiaha (4QIsaa) | 4Q56 Isaiahb (4QIsab) | 4Q58 Isaiahd (4QIsad) | 4Q59 Isaiahe (4QIsae) | 4Q60 Isaiahf (4QIsaf) | 4Q61 Isaiahg (4QIsag) | 4Q62 Isaiahh (4QIsah) | 4Q62a Isaiahi (4QIsai) | 4Q63 Isaiahj (4QIsaj) | 4Q64 Isaiahk (4QIsak) | 4Q65 Isaiahl (4QIsal) | 4Q66 Isaiahm (4QIsam) | 4Q67 Isaiahn (4QIsan) | 4Q68 Isaiaho (4QIsao) | 4Q69 papIsaiahp (4QpapIsap) | 4Q69a Isaiahq (4QIsaq) | 4Q69b Isaiahr (4QIsar) | 5Q3 Isaiah (5QIsa)

Dead Sea Scrolls – The Great Isaiah Scroll

May 8th, 2013

Quite probably the most famous Dead Sea Scroll of them all – The Great Isaiah Scroll – has now been transcribed and compared with the Masoretic text of the Lenningrad/Aleppo Codices, and uploaded onto TWTY.

Out of the 1291 verses that comprise the Book of Isaiah (Yasha’Yahu) in the Hebrew (English versions usually have 1292 verses), only 77 of the verses have not changed between The Great Isaiah Scroll and those found in the Lenningrad/Aleppo Codices that the Masoretes produced in the 11th-12th Centuries. That means that less than 6% of the verses have not changed.

If you think the Masoretes accurately copied their Hebrew texts letter by letter and word for word – think again 🙂

Update! Job & Song of Songs

January 27th, 2013

Okay – these are the last batch of the “small” Tanakh book Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions before tackling the much larger books.

Among the Dead Sea Scrolls, there are four manuscripts for the books of Job and Song of Songs – with Song of Songs (a.k.a Canticles) being quite well preserved, but only several words of several verses from 10 of the 42 chapters of Job being preserved for over 2000 years.

The most interesting manuscript is the one named 4Q101 paleoJobc, which, as its name suggests, is written in Paleo Hebrew, not the Phoenician “square” Hebrew script.

As usual, find all Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions on the TWTY Downloads page 🙂

Job
2Q15 Job (2QJob) | 4Q99 Joba (4QJoba) | 4Q100 Jobb (4QJobb) | 4Q101 paleoJobc (4QpaleoJobc)

Song of Songs (Canticles)
4Q106 Canticlesa (4Q Canticlesa) | 4Q107 Canticlesb (4Q Canticlesb) | 4Q108 Canticlesc (4Q Canticlesc) | 6Q6 Canticles (6Q Canticles)
