We would like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to more than 200 of our friends who made a donation since we announced our $100,000 matching grant. You went above and beyond in your response. Together, you gave $198,752, nearly doubling what was needed to complete the matching grant challenge.
You provided crucial support so that CSNTM could digitize manuscripts in Tbilisi, Georgia; Ioannina, Greece; and Heidelberg, Germany this summer. The manuscripts preserved include the most significant parchment manuscript CSNTM has ever digitized and one of the oldest manuscripts of Romans known to exist. And we used multispectral imaging technology that will reveal text never before seen in modern times. Soon these manuscripts will be shared online for the world to see in breathtaking high-resolution images.
Your generosity will have an ongoing impact. Beyond these expeditions, we will continue to build relationships with new partners who want to see their manuscript collections preserved. We also will continue to study manuscripts in our collection so that their texts and features can impact the latest research on the New Testament.
Thank you, again, for preserving ancient New Testament manuscripts for the modern world!
