The new images of W produced by the Freer Gallery are
excellent. I was
present for the first portion of the imaging in the spring
When the images were released a couple of months later, I
was pleased to
see that the results were so good. Having just been granted
privilege of examining W for the sake of checking problem
transcription against the original, what I had seen was
still fresh in
my mind and the new images impressed me as being very much
at the original in person. The images are available for
directly from the Freer Gallery.
The publication of the Prior and Brown transcription has

Sinaiticus Project as a contracted transcriber before our
transcription was able to go to press. The Codex Sinaiticus
taken me to England and is a full-time endeavor, and has
difficult for me to give the Freer Gospels publication the
deserves. The second factor is the set of new images I have
discussed. These new images are such an improvement over
what Bruce and
I had to work with before, we agreed that it was a good
postpone our publication long enough to proofread it
them. The Codex Sinaiticus Project contract concludes at
the end of
July this year. Bruce and I will again turn our attention
publication of our transcription of the Freer Gospels upon
my return to
America at the end of July.
