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: 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)

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 🙂

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! 🙂

Downtime & Update

July 4th, 2012

First of all, my apologies for the downtime. Unfortunately, TWTY website was compromised by some malicious software, which effectively caused me to have to change webservers, and to also rebuild the website.

Thankfully, I had backups of practically everything, so now the site should be restored in full.

My apologies also to those who’ve had difficulty with the links in the Downloads page. They should now be back to full working order 🙂

I used this opportunity to change the address that the Forums were on (forum.thewaytoyahuweh.com is now http://forums.thewaytoyahuweh.com), and to also revamp the forums with a new look 🙂

Coincidentally, the downtime coincided with a new update that I was going to post up on TWTY, which I am now doing: Questioning Paul Review Part 2: The Eyewitness Accounts/The Messiah’s Words.

There will also be open discussion on this in the forum in the following thread: Forum Discussion.

TWTY Update – Dead Sea Scrolls

June 5th, 2012

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted an update to TWTY. There are a few reasons for this:

1) I moved into my own house *yay* – means I’ve had to spend time moving, sorting stuff out, and basically, spending a whole load of money I don’t particularly have on furniture, as well as household bills

2) I started a new, full-time job*yay* – this means I’ve been busy with work, not only at our office, but also at home too.

Both 1) & 2) lead to *nay* – meaning I’ve not had as much time I have had over the last couple of years to do stuff when I want to do them.

Never fear though – I’m not one to take a long break, and I’ve been continuing most of my projects here on TWTY. This first update this month is some more Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions (woo), comprising the books of 1 & 2 Kings, 2 Chronicles (no manuscript of 1 Chronicles was found among the DSS), and proverbs. They are the following:

6Q4papKings – Containing the Books of 1 & 2 Kings (fragmentary condition)
4Q188 Chronicles – Containing the Book of 2 Chronicles (1 Chronicles not being extant on any manuscript found among the Dead Sea Scrolls)
4Q102Prova – Containing Chapters from the Book of Proverbs (fragmentary condition)
4Q103Provb – Containing Chapters from the Book of Proverbs (fragmentary condition)

As usual, these are all available from the Downloads Page, which also has a link to it to the right 🙂

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Haggai Text

September 1st, 2011

The short book of Haggai appears in three of the Dead Sea Scrolls Manuscripts – Wadi Murabba’at Minor Prophets (MurXII); 4Q77b (4QXIIb); and 4Q80e (4QXIIe). So as usual, I have transcribed and uploaded all three of them onto the website 🙂

(For people that haven’t realised, there are certain “key codes” for the Dead Sea Scroll’s Manuscripts. 4Q stands for “Fourth Qumran Cave” (so therefore “2Q” would stand for “Second Qumran Cave” and so on and so forth), and manuscripts with XII in their title stand for “Twelve” and so refer to “The Twelve Minor Prophets”).

Wadi Murabba’at/MurXII | 4Q77b/4QXIIb | 4Q80e/4QXIIe

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Zechariah Text

August 30th, 2011

I’ve just finished uploading transcriptions of the 5 manuscripts that contain text from the book of Zechariah among the Dead Sea Scrolls: Wadi Murabba’at; 4Q76a (4QXIIa); 4Q80e(4QXIIe); 4Q82g (4QXIIg); and Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets Scroll (8HevXIIgr).

As it happens, this therefore means that I’ve transcribed the whole of the Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets Scroll (8HevXIIgr), and so I have combined all of the transcriptions into one volume of the Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets Scroll (8HevXIIgr) in PDF form. Previous to the free transcription now available on TWTY, peoples only access to such a complete transcription would be if they bought the $175+ book Discoveries in the Judaean Desert: Volume VIII. The Greek Minor Prophets Scroll from Nahal Hever (8HevXIIgr), which is, as far as I’m concerned, far too expensive of a book to get.

Well, now people have it for free 🙂
