5. The Apocrypha

Articles on the books dealt with in this chapter in the Anchor Bible Dictionary and J. H. Charlesworth (ed.), Old Testament Pseudepigrapha (New York, 1983).

6. The New Testament

There are two excellent introductions to the text of the New Testament:

K. and B. Aland, The Text of the New Testament, 2nd edn. (Grand Rapids, Mich., and Leiden, 1989). Containing much up-to-date information generated by the Münster Institute, this study is especially strong in describing the materials and in its study of various textual problems according to the editorial principles behind the Nestle-Aland text.

B. M. Metzger, The Text of the New Testament, 2nd edn. (Oxford, 1968; or 3rd edn., Oxford, 1992). This gives a description of the manuscripts and other materials, a history of the discipline, and a discussion of textual methods and problems. It is the best traditional introduction.

See also:

B. D. Ehrman and M. W. Holmes, The Text of the New Testament in Contemporary Research: Essays on the Status Quaestionis. A Volume in Honor of Bruce M. Metzger (Grand Rapids, Mich., 1995). A collection of ‘state of the art’ studies by experts in the various fields of study.

D. C. Parker, The Living Text of the Gospels (Cambridge, 1997). An introduction along new lines, which studies the materials and a number of passages in the light of the question whether there is an ‘original’ text. No knowledge of Greek is required to understand it.

More generally, the whole history of the text and versions is covered in various sections of The Cambridge History of the Bible, 3 vols. (Cambridge, 1963–70).

There are a number of general introductions to Greek and Latin palaeography. For a book more precisely on the former as it applies to the New Testament, see:

B. M. Metzger, Manuscripts of the Greek Bible: An Introduction to Greek Palaeography (New York/Oxford, 1981).

For Latin manuscripts:

M. T. Gibson, The Bible in the Latin West (The Medieval Book 1; Notre Dame, Ind./London, 1993).

Other books on subjects discussed above:

H. Y. Gamble, Books and Readers in the Early Church: A History of Early Christian Texts (New Haven, 1995). An excellent study of the use and context of early Christian manuscripts.

B. M. Metzger, A Textual Commentary on the Greek NT, 2nd edn. (Stuttgart, 1994).

W. L. Petersen, Tatian's Diatessaron: Its Creation, Dissemination, Significance, and History in Scholarship, Supplements to Vigiliae Christianae, 25 (Leiden, 1994).

F. H. A. Scrivener, A Plain Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament for the Use of Biblical Students, 2 vols.; 4th edn., rev. E. Miller (London/New York/Cambridge, 1894). Outdated both in theory and in its list of materials, it still provides the fullest history of scholarship.

Among other kinds of material, there is the video The Desert Speaks: The World of Papyrus, produced by the Institut für Neutestamentliche Bibelwissenschaft, Salzburg, which tells the story of the great papyrus finds and illustrates the process of conservation.

There are outstanding permanent exhibitions of biblical manuscripts and incunabula in various libraries, including the British Library (where Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Alexandrinus, the Lindisfarne Gospels, and other treasures may be seen), Trinity College, Dublin (The Book of Kells), and the Chester Beatty Collection, Dublin (a great variety of books and manuscripts).

The Prefaces to the various translations often provide much useful information. Several committee-based translations have also published explanations of their work. These have been prepared for the Revised Version by several of those who participated, the Revised Standard Version, the New English Bible, and the New International Version, among others.
