The third seal
A little random looking about in the NT. It's a bit like walking into a very familiar place. I hope I will see with refreshed eyes when I look at it with my biased 12 years of work on Tanak. I also intend to produce the entire NT Margoliuth translation in U...

1 Corinthians 8:6, handling the names in NT Hebrew
Translating the names. What do the two Hebrew translators I am looking at do with them? Lord Jesus Christ is a frequent phrase in the NT. Here is a classic verse. (Note the abbreviations used for the names in the Greek codex sinaiticus. αλλ ημιν ειϲ ┬ [θεὸς...

John 1:1 - what is its music?
I could spend the rest of my life trying to hear the mind of the word in the commentary on Tanakh that is the New Testament. Perhaps this one chapter alone could occupy considerable time. What occurs to me in this first verse is that we have here a countera...

Where did I get the translation and cantillation from for Matthew
Astonishing - I can find the provenance of my version of Matthew 5:1-12 on my own blog ! What a fickle thing memory is. I really am a Turing machine and when the tape gets too long, I can't remember what I have done. So having done that, what's next? I thou...

Music for Matthew 5:14?

Word density
I'm sure this is somewhat old hat, but it is interesting to see if some words are more densely used in some books than others. Word density would be the number of occurrences of a stem over the total number of words in the passages being compared. I came ac...

Of knights, camels, polemics, and beauty
Prepared for battle I was just rereading the chapter on polemical language in my book, The Song in the Night. It's a good description. So many people who need to be right arguing about what they do not know. Curious. How much better is a good piece of music...
