Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

Vellum - one type of parchment (a material derived from animal skins and used for writing on in antiquity) - was made from dried and treated calf skin. I had always believed that that was the most valuable material made from skins that could be used for recording the precious words of the New Testa...

Re: Your text

I don't have anything to add to your discussion, but there have been several occasions when I have admired your work. I like what you have done, and I think it would've been difficult for someone to point you to an exemplar that looks better. -Just a friendly tip of the hat to all involved Your wor...

Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

I have given you a little help along the way, it's true to say, but please don't forget that it was George F. Somsel who first directed your attention to the uncial manuscripts that you yourself have been working from with tireless effort and creative determination. That is true and it is good that...

Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

I also like it a lot. I especially like that it is handwritten. There is enough variation in the letters for it to look like hand writing. I feel that there is a strength and a personal witness to the faith - an act of personal devotion - in handwriting, that cutting and pasting with the brain half...

Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

Subjective nitpicking... :roll: ;) Grateful for it ;). I think it would look better if you were to put a "tail" at the beginning of the extended "infinity" at the very end of the third passage, perhaps mirror imaged from the far end of it. The Α (with a supralinear stroke) meaning πρώτη "first (epi...

Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

So for a reader of the koine greek language, is (was? :lol: SGH) it obvious that it's abbrevations for greek numerals then? With a supralinear-stroke, yes. Without, most probably or they'd need to go back and read again to make sense of it. Haha. All right. Well then I don't see much of a problem u...

Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

Perhaps I've misled you by quoting the numbers in that form. Modern day usage of Milesian numerals. I realise you are not planning to use them, but ... FYI , the Milesian numerals for the verses you are quoting are; 8:12 - η'.ιβ', 2:10 - β'.ι', 2:25 - κβ'.ε'. I'm sorry, I was expecting you not to u...

Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

A scribal convention. It is your hand. I don't think you need to slavishly copy another manuscript's hand. You are writinng for a readership that is used to things written out in full. This is great. Then I will go with "my hand" as it doesn't seem to be wrong. Modern day usage of Milesian numerals...

Re: Quoting bible verse in biblical greek

Could you have a glance at a edited version of the last work in progress that I've made? I've removed the supralinear strokes and replaced them with letters, mostly because I do not understand them. Are the strokes corrections? In that case I thought I will just correct the text with the proper lett...
