The fruit of fifteen years of painstaking labor, The Complete Text of the Earliest New Testament Manuscripts presents fresh transcriptions of the earliest New Testament papyrus manuscripts. These manuscripts, more than sixty in number, date from the early second century to the beginning of the fourth century. The value of these papyri has long been recognized, but their publication in obscure journals and disparate sources has made access to them difficult for all but the most determined scholars. They are now collected into one handy volume, giving students, scholars, and translators a look at the Greek text that was read in the earliest centuries of the church. This collection of papyrus fragments covers almost two-thirds of the entire Greek New Testament, with transcriptions newly checked for accuracy. Preceding each transcription is an introduction giving a complete description of the papyrus: content, date of writing, place of discovery, housing location, bibliography, physical features, and textual character. A selection of more than forty manuscript photographs rounds out this unique resource.
