Re: THE LANGUAGE OF GE'EZ

Don't know whether it predates it (likely not), but probably contemporary.

Like Latin for the Roman Catholics, Ge'ez is only spoken as part of the Liturgical language of the Ethiopian Churches.

Re: Dead Sea Scrolls

Hi aminah, You need to look on the LLDSSDL for the images labeled fragments 3-8 for 4Q47. The following image is of Columns 1-2 of fragment 3 - the start of the second column is where Joshua 6:5 starts - http://www.deadseascrolls.org.il/explore-the-archive/image/B-498970 Edit: The other two images y...

Re: Book of Chronicles — what is it actually?

Interesting speculation, but there are over 30 instances of אדניו in scripture that refer to "his master" and not "his master s " - Gen 24:9, 10 (x2), 39:2, 3, 7, 8, 16, 19, 40:7; Exod 21:4, 6 (x2); Deut 23:16 (x2)... etc., etc. I could only find one instance that actually follows the usual Hebrew g...

Re: Book of Chronicles — what is it actually?

If I understand you right, since textual criticism can take us back to just around when LXX was made (~200BC) and since my hypothesis is about what happened to the text around 450 BC, too much would have happened in between to make the hypothesis interesting or falsifiable. More or less. However I ...

Re: Book of Chronicles — what is it actually?

Well before the question of whether Chronicles should be considered "Canon" can be assessed in full, one needs to determine what the original version of Samuel-Kings was: as there're more than a few differences between the Greek Septuagint Samuel-Kings and that of the Masoretic Hebrew Samuel-Kings, ...

Re: Esther 2:12 in Papyrus 967

Excellent stuff there, sestir. Easy to read, with helpful notes for everyone.

Works rather well on a page in that format :)

You going to be doing the rest of the manuscript?

Okay - finally had time to look at this. I think we're looking at it reading: p967_est2_12.jpg αλειφομεναι εν ?? σμυρινω ελαιω I'm basing this on the combination of σ+μ seen in Esther 2:3 on the previous page: p967_est2_3.jpg Due to the mark between εν ?? σμυρινω, I'm not sure what the letter is bef...

Hi sestir - sorry I've not responded to you on this.

Re: Galatians 3:20 ܕܚܕ

I need to learn a scandinavian language. I'm quite clueless on them at the moment (I do know 'no' in russian: Nyet :P ). But this again highlights what I mean regarding the above in Galatians: it isn't following the common way Paul (and others) said and wrote things. Why this hasn't caused scholars ...

Re: Galatians 3:20 ܕܚܕ

Unfortunately I don't know enough Aramaic to disagree. Your translation there is pretty much how I've translated the Greek; however looking at it, I think I've missed typing the word "of": However, the mediator and intervener, arbitrator and go-between, reconciler and interceder does not exist as of...

Re: Deuteronomy 12: Not an exception to unclean meats

Hi sestir, I've been racking my brains trying to remember if there was a place off the top of my head that may be able to give a clear cut example of this, but couldn't think of any, nor have I been able yet to find one. Usually the prophetical books contain a change of command to non-command, but t...

Re: Deuteronomy 12: Not an exception to unclean meats

Hi sestir, thanks for the kind words :) As with regards to ואכלתם, I took ואכלתם as indicating a command due to the context going back to v5, where we have the initial imperfect verb starting the command (תדרשו - you shall seek), then followed by the usual strings of waw+perfect (and you shall go......
