I am delighted to make available with twelve color photographs: “Vaticanus Distigme-obelos Symbols Marking Added Text, Including 1 Corinthians 14.34–5New Testament Studies 63.4 (2017) 604-625. Paul Canart, probably the world’s leading expert on Codex Vaticanus, emailed to me how pleased he is with the article and its argument that scribe B faithfully copied a primitive manuscript of the Gospels. Larry Hurtado, renowned New Testament textual scholar, already has a positive review of it at https://larryhurtado.wordpress.com/2017/09/23/paul-and-1-corinthians-1434-35/, and the British mainstream newspaper Telegraph already has published a positive review of its importance at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/22/bible-passage-used-stop-women-become-ordained-added-later-academic/ (more…)

I am delighted that New Testament Studies 63 (2017) 604-625 is publishing my study, “Vaticanus Distigme-obelos Symbols Marking Added Text, Including 1 Corinthians 14.34–5” with twelve colour photographs, downloadable free in September 2017 from https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/new-testament-studies/open-access. Downloads are free since Christians for Biblical Equality paid to make it an Open Access article permitting unrestricted re-use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Attached is a supplement to that article giving the chi-square standard probability test data confirming that the eight bars with characteristic features in Vaticanus are not simply paragraph marks, but obeloi marking blocks of added text. Six groundbreaking discoveries in this study are summarized at cbe.today/Vaticanus.

What an amazing year it has been! I have been overwhelmed by the uniformly enthusiastic responses to all the seminars I have given on the oneness of man and woman in Christ in Conferences in Uganda and Kenya, Universities, Seminaries, and churches. It was a special delight to be back at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School before Thanksgiving, where response to “How Complementarian is the Bible?” and its many follow up discussions were uniformly positive. You can see the full video of the Seminar on YouTube at:
