    The False Claims of Constantine Simonides Regarding Sinaiticus

    Well, I scored high for narcissistic personality, but I suspect you were aiming your remarks at someone else.

    Is the "World's Oldest Bible" a Fake?

    It appears that the Team Simonides consists entirely of KJVOs who are grasping at any pretext to disparage or marginalize the Sinaiticus and other early manuscripts that differ from the Textus Receptus.

    Is the "World's Oldest Bible" a Fake?

    I honestly think it would be a challenge to merely read, not also write, the whole of LXX and the whole of NT in eight months. That suggests a speed that would not produce the careful lettering and marginalia of the Sinaiticus.

    Is the "World's Oldest Bible" a Fake?

    This part of Simonides's story, about finding a book with many blank vellum pages and using those pages for the Sinaiticus, is particularly improbable. The whole Sinaiticus ran roughly 400 pages of fine vellum (the entire LXX with Apocrypha, the entire NT plus at least two documents of the...

    Is the "World's Oldest Bible" a Fake?

    Instead of arguing about the antiquity of the Codex Sinaiticus, does anyone want to argue about the "antiquity" of the Book of Mormon??

    Does the 1611 KJV have the characteristic of true Reformation Bibles?

    I would appreciate some examples of readings from Tyndale or Matthew, compared to the KJV, to see for myself how corrupt or distorted the KJV version was.

    Is the "World's Oldest Bible" a Fake?

    I am willing to concede that Tischendorf may not have been honest or truthful; it doesn't matter to me. And Simonides may be a candidate for sainthood but his own story of working up the Sinaiticus as a teenager, within a week, using a Russian edition of the Greek NT as a model, etc., does not...

    Is the "World's Oldest Bible" a Fake?

    Again, for the umpteenth time, it doesn't matter if Tischendorf stole the Sinaiticus and lied about how he got it. The issue is the Codex itself and how old it is.

    The False Claims of Constantine Simonides Regarding Sinaiticus

    Again, it seems paradoxical that Simonides could have worked up such a perfect fabrication as Sinaiticus in his teens, and yet subsequently produced such unconvincing and readily exposed fabrications in his mature years. By the way, I admit to missing some typos in my redux of the Daily Alta...
