Mt 27:49 in Arabic manuscripts
- Dear List
After Sin. Ms. 72 (here) i found two more Arabic manuscripts support the Spear Thrust in Matt 27:49,
1- Ms. Sin. Ar. 54 (10th) - Photo
2- Ms. Sin. Ar. 74 (9th) - Photo
The worth note that:
1- All codices (54. 72. 74) reading words (Blood and Water) in the same order as they appear in John 19:34.
2- All codices considered to be members of Family A (According to Kachouh's thesis) which means they are all copied from earlier codices unavailable to us today (p87).
