Fro those of you who are interested in ancient MSS finds here is some information you might be interested in.


New Manuscript Discoveries in Athens!


The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscript’s (CSNTM) staff have discovered as many as seventeen New Testament manuscripts at the National Library of Greece in the past 12 months. By ‘discovery’ we mean that, in the least, they have not been officially cataloged yet by the Institute for New Testament Textual Research (INTF) in Muenster, Germany. The INTF is the official cataloging house of all Greek New Testament manuscripts. Generally speaking, if INTF doesn’t know about a manuscript, New Testament scholars don’t know about it either.

yap, INTF has NOT yet cataloged them. It takes INTF quite some time to examine and catalog newly found MSS. Except in the case of one p134 which was cataloged virtually instantaneously http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/update-papyri-from-john-150-51-sold-on-ebay-classifieds/ Vessela Kulev Rick Wadholm Jr @Glynn Brown Tommy Wasserman and @Tony Burke

Thanks for the info

well I wish there was more but until this point INTF has no official info on p134 and per the reasons it was cataloged so quickly…
