Peter Head has helpfully spotted what seems to be an erratum in NA28’s text of Phil 1:23. There is perhaps some room for debate on the matter (e.g., Maurice Robinson’s initial reply). But, Klaus Wachtel has taken “a note for a correction in the next printing of NA28” in the direction of Head’s observation.
Under the heading of “keeping your Greek and Hebrew skills sharp,” Mark Ward has some helpful advice about creating a serial biblical text in Logos Bible Software. For instance, if you create a series between BHS and NA28 and you have BHS open, you can type a New Testament passage in the go box and run straight there. Logos will treat the two resources as combined.
I’d had this done at one point, but then a subsequent software update disrupted that connection, and I’d been looking for a good way to reestablish the connection. Using Mark’s principles, I’ve now got serial relationships established among BHS, LXX (based on the current German Bible Society version of Rahlfs), and NA28 texts. The combination allows movement from any one of the texts to any other. For texts occurring in more than one of the resources (BHS, LXX), it looks like Logos may follow the priority system established via the library.
For the moment, the serial relationships don’t seem to get passed from the desktop version to iOS. But, one can hope that’s on the road-map for a future iOS app update.
On the web:
- Mark Hoffman notes that Google Maps’ street view now includes several additional locations of significance around Israel.
- Charles Jones identifies several publicly accessible dissertations from the University of Pennsylvania.
- Dirk Jongkind reflects on Acts 17:3 in connection with the two latest Nestle-Aland texts.
The 28th edition of the Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament is set to be available around the end of the year. The new edition features a revised and more user-friendly critical apparatus, readings for Papyrii 117–127, somewhat more than 30 changes to the main text, and additional checking of scriptural cross references (HT: Brian Davidson).
