Robinson-Pierpont PDF updated

Due to feedback from the downloading public, I have scrapped the pdf I was offering of the Robinson-Pierpont Greek New Testament, and re-compiled a pdf from a Unicode text document which I obtained directly from Dr. Maurice Robinson.  You can download that here.  Note: there will be a table on contents in a column to the left in the pdf, in which you can click on the book names to go directly to that like an Internet link.  However, if you are viewing the document in your browser, the table will not show up.  You have to right-click the link, choose “save as,” and download it to your hard drive.  Then, after that, when you open the document, the links will show up.

Latin Manuscripts New Testament

I just created a new html web page listing the Latin New Testament manuscripts in order by Beuron number.  This was previously not really available in this format freely on the web.  Also the page states whether that Latin manuscript is “old Latin” text, or Vulgate text, or mixed and variable.

Snapchat

God sees every message you write on Snapchat, and every message you read and wrongly believe or give credence to.

Just a reminder: “³⁶And I tell you, every idle word which human beings will speak, they will have to give an explanation for it on the day of judgment. ³⁷For out of your words you will be justified, and out of your words you will be condemned.”

Hands and Feet

In Hebrew, and ancient Greek as well, the words for foot πούς and hand χείρ originally meant the whole limb, not just the foot and hand; that is, πούς could mean the whole leg, and χείρ the whole upper limb, from the finger tips to the shoulder. In Revelation, we can see that the writer uses these words that way, from Revelation 10:1, where he says (ESV), “Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head, and his face was like the sun, and his legs like pillars of fire.”

Certainly, legs are like pillars, and feet are not like pillars. The ESV correctly renders πούς as legs, and not feet. Those translations that render it “feet” are just plain wrong.

Help Christians in the Middle East

Did you heard about Mark Burnett’s and Roma Downey’s charity, which helps displaced Christians in Iraq and the middle east?  Your fellow Christians are cold and hungry and persecuted.  I urge you to donate at least once.
