Abstract As a witness to the early Coptic and Greek Biblical traditions, Papyrus Bodmer III is of vital interest to biblical scholars. This updated transcription is unique in providing readers with direct access to the original text by positioning digital images of the actual papyrus side by side with a new transcription of each page. Over 100 corrections to Kasser's 1958 transcription underscore the importance of this book for serious students of the New Testament.
A detailed introduction examines the provenance, codex and paleography of P. Bodmer III, presents the singular readings discovered in the text, and separates these readings into meaningful categories. Finally, the appendices provide a complete list of the 1,960 singular readings, a brief description of the 119 corrections made by the original scribe, and a quick reference to the location of all corrections to Kasser's 1958 transcription, as well as corrections to citations in the NA 28th edition.
This work will prove a valuable asset to anyone interested in Coptic Biblical studies, New Testament textual criticism, scribal habits, and other related fields.
