In 2001, the exciting but enigmatic 4th century Coptic Matthew text, Codex Schiyen, was introduced as an alternative, non-canonical Matthew. In book, James M. Leonard refutes these sensational claims through fresh methodological approaches and easily accessible analysis. Leonard reveals that the underlying Greek text is one of great quality, and that Codex Schiyen can contribute to the identification of the earliest attainable text - but only with due concern for translational interference. Leonard shows how Codex Schiyen's close alliance with Codices Vaticanus, and Sinaiticus allows triangulation of the three to help identify an earlier text form which they mutually reflect, and how this impacts a dozen variant passages in Matthew.Table of Contents1.
