The latest podcast is pretty technical—and requires at least a basic knowledge of Hebrew. It's a study of the textual variants in Deut 32:34-35, an ages-old debate between Samaritans and Jews. Does the text prophecy a coming Day of Judgement? Or is it a more general promise that "God will avenge" his people? Join Dr. J as he surveys the various texts that support each reading: the Massoretic Text, the Samaritan Pentateuch, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Syriac Peshitta, the Septuagint, the Greek New Testament, the Old Latin Versions, and the Latin Vulgate.

Thanks Dr. J. Even though I don't know Hebrew, I could follow the lesson and understand the controversies. I now know that I can use my Accordance library to search through these difficult passages.

 

Soli Deo Gloria,

Randy

Thanks, Randy!

 

I was hoping interested people who didn't know Hebrew could follow the argument. I appreciate the confirmation.

Although I never studied Hebrew, my brother-in-law, Dr. Douglas J. Culver, was professor of Hebrew at Erskine Theological Seminary until his death in 2007. I'm sure Doug would have approved of your work.

I also find it useful to see other Accordance resources, like bhs, that I don’t own, not only in use, but also so I can make an informed descision about getting them and if I did, what other ones I would need as well as how I could use them.

Please keep setting us aflame!

Thanks, Fraser!

 

I admit I'm spoiled. Since I produce these podcasts, I have access to all of Accordance's resources. Now, there are a lot of secondary resources (commentaries and such) I could do without, but having all these original languages texts is sheer joy. I've taken Hebrew, Greek and a bit of Aramaic and Akkadian, but neither Syriac or Latin. I'm amazed at just how much I can get out of tagged texts when I don't know the language—and how much I miss the tagging when it is absent (e.g. Vetus Latina). Even then, Accordance helped me by finding similar words in the Latin Vulgate, which is tagged, and amplifying them to Smith and Short's Latin lexicon.

 

I think I had more fun producing this podcast than any other project I've completed in my ten years at Accordance.

I appreciate your videos over the years for they have helped me to navigate Accordance with ease.  I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Old Testament and I recently bought the Greek Codex add on, but was truly disappointed that there is no OT text in them.  Does Accordance plan to add these?  It is pretty essential for textual criticism to have these manuscripts and texts to evaluate different readings.

In case it's of use to you there is a user bible of the Sinaiticus containing both OT and NT on the exchange : http://www.accordanc...xSinaiticus.zip. Of course it has the limitations of a UB (no morph tagging etc) but the text is there.

 

But otherwise I agree, this material would be great to have.

 

Thx

Thanks for the heads up.  Is there other manuscripts available in the open format such as Vat or Alex?

I don't know of any online source of either the VAT or Alex, but it's been a while since I checked. Well, strictly that's not true - there is https://digi.vatlib....MSS_Vat.gr.1209but it's got no transcription that I know of. Alex is at http://www.csntm.org...ript/View/GA_02 and I haven't checked much for a transcription. The Sinaiticus is online at the British Library (http://codexsinaiticus.org/en/project/transcription.aspx) and is fully open. It's in a slightly modified TEI format.

 

Thx

You can also find the Allepo Codex which is fully viewable online. Just google it and it should come right up. Also the Leon Levy database of the Dead Sea Scrolls will be of use

New music I am interested in:

https://youtu.be/Y-ZiJmDOk2c - Matisyahu, Produces Reggae and Pop music as a practicing Jew. His song "One Day" talks about peace between the world at large

https://youtu.be/44S6vBveKZQ - Demon Hunter, Traditional Christian Metal/Rock band who just came out with 2 very successful albums, separately, titled 'War' & 'Peace'

https://youtu.be/R7REkjcwM_8- POD (Payable On Death), Positive Nu-Metal/Rock/Reggae band that gained popularity when they came out with "Alive" and "Youth of the Nation" off the album 'Satellite' which released 9/11/2001

https://youtu.be/Bz-g2tucn24- Project 86, Post-Hardcore Christian band. Andrew Schwab, the front man of the band runs a podcast (which I support through Patreon) dedicated to helping other creatives find their voice.

 

See my YouTube channel, and it's purpose! I am pretty underground now, but I think I am going to make it!

https://www.youtube....og8xbPfEWXFUiQ?

 

As I see John 6:29:

Joshua replied to all of them, "In me is the Work of God, in order that you [all] trust that I will send you."

 

Jesus started His ministry as a commandment of God through His mother, whom he obeyed, to urged Him to begin His ministry. What transpires from that is Him as the greatest light of the world that ever was and ever will be. As a representation of this, he did a miracle and from six pots of water He made into wine that represents humanity at large. He made the wine into the best tasting wine as a representation of what He does for those of us who believe He was God and did the Work of God so that He might send out His Spirit upon the whole world.
