The dating book

I believe that I will either re-wrap them in a groovy scrapbooking paper that I didn’t have handy at the time, or I will just take the sign out of its holder and post it to the wall. Update: I did adjust it and it looks SOOO much better, don’t ya think?

This is based on three strands of evidence: (a) the setting of Matthew reflects the final separation of Church and Synagogue, about 85 CE; (b) it reflects the capture of Jerusalem and destruction of the Temple by the Romans in 70 CE; (c) it uses Mark, usually dated around 70 CE, as a source.

There is evidence, both textual (the conflicts between Western and Alexandrian manuscript families) and from the Marcionite controversy (Marcion was a 2nd-century heretic who produced his own version of Christian scripture based on Luke's gospel and Paul's epistles) that Luke-Acts was still being substantially revised well into the 2nd century.

We haven’t really done anything quite like that and I thought it’d be eye-catching as well as give easier access to the displayed books.

Initially the sign was up with the “how to play,” but I felt it blocked the books too much.

Their true purpose is to hide some ugly screws sticking out of the wall.

Originally the screws held up some plaques and pictures commemorating the library’s history.

The Book of Jeremiah exists in two versions, Greek (the version used in Orthodox Christian Bibles) and Hebrew (Jewish, Catholic and Protestant Bibles), with the Greek representing the earlier version.
