New Testament Papyri Facsimile Collection + New Testament Papyrus P47: A Transcription
This New Testament Papyri facsimile collection brings three of the oldest manuscripts of the Bible to a modern audience. The partially preserved papyrus codices P45, P46, and P47 are dated from the third century and contain passages from all four Gospels, the book of Acts, the Pauline epistles, the book of Hebrews, and the book of Revelation, making them some of the most significant witnesses to early Christian Scripture that exist today.
The bundle includes New Testament Papyrus P47: A Transcription. This companion volume contains (1) a general essay that introduces all three papyri and that discusses the methodology The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts used for digitizing and transcribing them, and (2) a meticulous and thoroughly vetted transcription of P47.
Here published in facsimile for the first time in over 80 years, this collection—created by the groundbreaking digitization work of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, under the direction of Dr. Daniel B. Wallace—updates the previously published edition, which was produced from 1933 to 1937.
Printed in duplicate against white and black backgrounds, the high-resolution images in this facsimile edition reproduce the fragmented papyri in stunning clarity at their actual size, offering scholars and students of New Testament manuscripts an unparalleled encounter with these crucial witnesses to the Bible’s textual history.
