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 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 🙂
