What is it?

The New Testament Manuscript Explorer allows you to filter all the extant manuscript evidence according to type of manuscript, contents, date, textual family, and more.

How does it work?

New Testament manuscripts into a helpful interactive tool that lets you navigate, sort, and filter countless manuscript witnesses to the text of the New Testament. Find all manuscripts containing a portion of the Gospels copied in the 3rd century. Or find all the manuscripts that are a part of the Byzantine text type.

Where can I learn more?

Thanks for the heads up on the broken link. I've removed it and will replace it when we have a video up for it!

By the way, the book cover is wrong. But the tool is amazing so... I'm not too offended :-) but just thought you'd like to know.

Happy to see textual criticism getting more love! From the screenshot it looks like some of the manuscript names may be links but not others. Is that correct? If so, do they link to transcriptions or to images? Thanks!

Only the ones in Logos have links, they are linked to the actual transcripts within Logos, and also have a link to the website hosting the image

This is known and fixed, I believe. You may need to restart Logos and/or update resources.

Yes, the manuscript detail will link to the manuscript information at the NTVMR. Depending on access (read the "About" text in the interactive) you can see images if they exist and transcriptions if they exist.

Interesting. Lays the groundwork for an interactive Church Fathers explorer and then an interactive textual variant explorer that displays all varients between texts of our choice. Hey, I can dream! Smile

Matthew:

1. The title of the manuscript links to the resource within Logos (if you own it)

2. Links to where the image is from to see the picture of the manuscript on the website

3. The passages the manuscript contains is linked to your Bible

4. The dating of the manuscript shows a popup of the same thing unabreviated (3rd becomes Third)

5. Links to the website of the place where the manuscript is housed

Thanks Rick, guess we were posting simultaneously. I appreciate the clarification.

Yes, after a restart, and after the preparing library finished, now it is displaying the correct one Wink

I was originally on my phone when I posted earlier and did not get a good look at some of the screenshots. I just looked at them on my desktop, and let me just say this -- MIND. BLOWN. This looks incredibly awesome, even better than what I first thought it was. If I may ask another question, would it be a correct assumption that all the data shown the screenshots is self-contained in the interactive resource? For example, we will be able to see which manuscripts are "Consistently Cited in NA28" even if we do not own a separate NA28 apparatus? Great work Faithlife! Yes Yes Yes

You can still filter the data by that facet and see which manuscripts it cites, but if there's a link, (meaning Logos has that resource tagged) it will just be a link that says, you don't have a license for this resource, if you don't have that resource

That's good enough for me!
