      New book:

      "Koptische Zeugen der Auferstehungsberichte"
      by Christina M. Kreinecker
      de Gruyter, 2008
      274 pages
      Series: Arbeiten zur neutestamentlichen Textforschung ; 39
      ISBN: 978-3-11-020920-4
      Euro 99.95
      US$ 140.00

      "The present volume is devoted to the Coptic tradition of New Testament
      accounts of the Resurrection (Mt 28,1-8; Mk 16,1-8; Lk 24,1-12; Joh 20,1-10
      together with the oldest witness to the Resurrection in 1Cor 15,3-5). In it,
      a comprehensive text-critical apparatus includes nearly all Sahidic
      manuscripts at present available, most of them unedited, and the textual
      variants are presented, provided with a commentary and divided into groups.
      A second stage contrasts and compares the propositions in the Greek and
      Coptic texts to discover syntactic differences between them and comment on
      these; here, dependency grammar is applied to the Coptic language for the
      first time. Particular attention is paid here to the rendering of Greek
      verbs in Coptic. It is the aim of this volume to present the Coptic versions
      of the Resurrection accounts on a scale hitherto unmatched, and apart from
      establishing textual variants within the Coptic texts to identify those
      syntactic differences from the Greek texts which cannot simply be traced
      back to the translation process."

      The text is in German, but most of the material are tables etc. and should
      be understood with a little effort. I think the most important part is the
      careful comparison of the Coptic with the Greek text. Interesting stuff!
      She discusses:
      Mt 28:1-8
      Mk 16:1-8
      Lk 24:1-12
      Jo 20:1-10
      1Co 15:3-5

      Best wishes
