The Great Uncial Codices
« on: Thu Feb 20, 2020 - 09:15:00 »
A brief description for any interested.

These are manuscripts of the complete New Testament, indeed, of the complete Bible, since they include the Greek Old Testament, known as the "Septuagint." They date from the fourth century onward and some of them include books excluded from the canon of Athanasius (discussed in Appendix 1). They are written on parchment in uncial characters (large or "capital" letters) and are designated by letters, or by numbers prefixed by a zero, since scholars have run out of alphabets! Some of the more important are the following.

We all base our lives on what we have read and been taught.

We should look back to discern for ourselves if what we rea and are taught are reasonably accurate and if not, then why not.
