Item description for Encountering the Manuscripts: An Introduction to New Testament Paleography & Textual Criticism by Philip Comfort...

Overview
From the preface "[Encountering the Manuscripts] focuses on the most significant New Testament manuscripts from the perspective of paleography and textual criticism. Paleography pertains to the dating of the manuscripts, as well as to the calligraphic features of the manuscripts themselves. Each manuscript has a story to tell; each manuscript gives us a window into the transmission of the New Testament text in the earliest centuries. Textual criticism pertains to the critical evaluation of the trustworthiness of the text of each manuscript with respect to recovering the original wording of the Greek New Testament. This volume merges the two areas of study by looking at both paleography and textual criticism as we encounter the New Testament manuscripts."

Reviews - What do customers think about Encountering the Manuscripts: An Introduction to New Testament Paleography & Textual Criticism?

A Rare Look into the Pre A.D. 300 New Testament  Dec 2, 2005
This momumental work explores the earliest New Testament writings (pre AD 300). The goals of the book are:

. to give an annotated list of all significant Greek manuscripts

. to assign dates for the earliest manuscripts

. to examine the nomina sacra (standardized abbreviations) used in the early manuscripts

. to present the history of textual variation in the early centuries of the church

. to explore various methods of recovering the original wording of the Greek.

All of this is within the main goal of helping students interact with the New testament test by knowing the original wording.

This book gives a rare insight into the work of the scholars putting the Bible together from very fragmentary documents. All in all, it is amazing that so much material exists from almost two thousand years ago.
