Seller: pattyspreciouspicks (3,038) 100%, Location: Herriman, Utah, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 362486443481 When someone talks about a textual difference in the New Testament, the reaction should not be "I've never heard of that before!" or "That's not in my King James Version of the Bible, but rather the reaction should be: "What was originally written by the evangelist Matthew?" At Matthew 27:35 the earliest and best texts do not support the addition of “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots,” which is derived from the parallel at John 19:24, which itself was inspired by Psalm 22:18. The omission of this later addition is strongly supported by the Greek Codex Sinaiticus, the Greek Codex Alexandrinus, the Greek Codex Vaticanus, the Greek Codex Bezae, other Greek uncials, Greek minuscules, Old Latin manuscripts, Jerome’s Latin Vulgate (as seen here, in the 3rd scanned image, left column, near the bottom), the Sinaitic Syriac, the Syriac Peshitta, the margin of the Harclean Syriac, the Middle Egyptian, and the Church father, Eusbius of Caesarea. Also, Bruce M. Metzger, A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament, p. 69, says: “The committee was impressed by the absence of the passage from early witnesses of the Alexandrian and the Western types of text . . . and the likelihood that copyists were influenced by the parallel passage in John 19:24.” A very rare and large leaf in Black Letter (Gothic) type from a Latin Vulgate Bible published in Venice in 1483 by the printer, Johannes Herbort de Seligenstadt. It is outstanding edition of the Latin Bible, one of the Fontiubus ex Graecis editions, "a series of corrected Latin Bibles, which claim for themselves--apparently with justice--a superiority above all contemporary edition," according to Darlow and Moule, vol. II, p. 911. This edition had numerous additions by Franciscus Moneliensis and Quintius Aemilianus. This is just twenty-eight years after Gutenberg's 1st Bible of 1455! By definition, an incunabulum (the singular of "incunabula") or "incunable" (French) or "inkunabel" (German) must be printed from 1455 to 1500. However, those books printed in the later 1480s and the 1490s, as well as the year 1500 (which is technically the last year of the 15th century), had more and more woodcut printed initials. In Latin, the term "incunabula" means "baby clothes" or "things of the cradle," and can refer to the earliest stages or first traces in the development of anything. This leaf has rubrication done all by a scribe's own hand in red ink, and yellow ink; there are scores of marks, underlinings, and flourishes on this leaf. The colors are strong and fresh-looking, on both sides of the leaf. Since versification on the Bible was not done until 1551, there are no verses on this leaf, but instead there are sections, which can be seen in the margin. This leaf contains Matthew 27:8--28:20. The size of the sheet is about 8 in. x 11 in. This leaf has three (3) large handwritten initial letters: two of them using pink and green ink, and one of them using blue ink. We need to put into context the work of Christian scribes during the 1,400 years before Gutenberg’s 1455 invention of printing with movable type. During these centuries scribes developed two kinds of abbreviations in the manuscripts that were copied and re-copied. The first kind of abbreviation was the shortening or abbreviation of very common words, so that it was easier and quicker to write such frequently occurring words. These do not concern us here. The second kind of abbreviation was for the words held sacred by Christians. In the Latin tradition, and especially in Jerome’s Latin Vulgate text, these were called “Nomina Sacra" meaning "Holy Names.” To Christians writing the New Testament the word “Lord” usually referred to “The Lord Jesus Christ.” This leaf has eleven instances of the Nomina Sacra or Holy Name for the word "Lord," in which the Latin word "Dominus" is abbreviated to “dns” and a line is placed above the “n” to indicate that this is a Nomina Sacra. There are also seven instances of the Nomina Sacra for "Lord" in the form of "dns"; also, there are two instances of the Nomina Sacra for "Christ" in the form of "xps."

This is an absolutely amazing leaf of an incunabula Bible. Bibliographic description in Frederick R. Goff, "Incunabula in American Libraries," as # B-579.
