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 :)

New Podcast: Godcast

August 5th, 2013

So, what could an atheist and a theist do that would be entertaining yet educational, and not end up being a hand-bag fight? Talk about religion, obviously!

Well, not really. Here’s an excerpt from the “about” page:

Welcome to our podcast companion website. My name is Andrew, and although I am an atheist, I understand the importance of the Bible, not only as a religious document, but as a force for cultural and political change. I have no doubt that reading the Bible will do nothing to change my views about God and religion, but remaining ignorant of its contents will gain me nothing. After deciding to take a stab at the most influential book in history, I realized that there are not many good guides that are aimed at non-believers like myself. Most Bible study material is made by Christians and for Christians, with a particular theological purpose in mind. I decided to read the Bible myself, with the aid of a long time acquaintance who has spent nearly a decade learning Hebrew and Greek so that he could do his own translations, and discover what God really had to say.

So, there you go. We currently have 5 episodes up at the moment: they’re not going to be “weekly” updates; mainly “do a show whenever we’re free” kinda things. So if you have any questions/comments/ideas/want to be on a show, let us know!
