Update! Transcription of P72 & More

October 9th, 2017

Another Ancient Manuscript Transcription update: this time it’s P72, containing the letters designated 1 Peter, 2 Peter, and Jude!

I’ve also gone through the rest of the uploaded ancient MS transcripts, and brought them up to date with the format of current ones, and also amended some errors in transcription and the accompanying English translations.

As usual, find general info regarding the transcripts here, and download them all from here 🙂

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!

Dead Sea Scrolls – Parallel Manuscripts

December 1st, 2014

In order to aid the reading of the Dead Sea Scrolls and their multiple manuscripts, Parallel versions of the Scriptural books that have more than one manuscript witness to their text have just been uploaded to TWTY. Those that only have one manuscript witness (2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah; Esther has none whatsoever) have not had parallel versions done – mainly because there’s no point!

These Parallel Versions also aid in being able to do the Textual Critical Editions that are also going to be uploaded to TWTY in the future.

The plan for the time being though is to complete the transcriptions of the Greek RC/NT Papyrus manuscripts that have yet to be done. Thankfully there’s only eleven of them left – they do however happen to be some of the largest ones (especially Papyrus 46, 66, 75), so they won’t be that quick in coming 🙂

Anyway – enjoy the new releases for the moment!

Dead Sea Scrolls – Mammoth Update

June 18th, 2014

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 – Numbers Complete

November 1st, 2013

Dead Sea Scrolls Transcription time again – this time it is the complete collection of DSS Numbers manuscripts, with the final two being online for download at TWTY Downloads page (bringing the total to 11), as we as some quick links below 🙂

This means that there are only four more books left to have their Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions posted online – the rest of the manuscripts of Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and the Psalms. I will be endeavouring to have these done within the next 6 months or so (hopefully sooner, time permitting!) 🙂

Quick Links

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 – 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)

Dead Sea Scrolls Update – Four Complete Books

January 4th, 2013

Yes, it’s Dead Sea Scrolls update time again.

TWTY has got four books completed for you this time: Daniel, Ecclesiastes/Qohelet, Ezra, and Lamentations!

This therefore leaves just one of the “smaller” books left to do (Song of Songs, which also happens to be quite well preserved), before TWTY starts tackling the much, much larger Prophetic books, as well as the “Poetic” books of the Psalms and Job, culminating in the Five books of Moses/the Torah.

I do actually plan on finishing the Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions this year, so I’d better start cracking on with them, once this is posted! 🙂
