Which uncial do you think is best on this list?
Apparently these are the names used for the same unical:
Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus
Codex Ephraemi Syri Rescriptus
Uh, I need more data before I vote ... :sleeping_2:
Yes, those names are used for the same "uncial"
I wish you had included more options! Codex Alexandrinus (A/02) is okay in the Gospels (except that a big chunk of Matthew is missing) but is worse in Acts and still worse in Paul and the Catholics. For consistency and quality of text, I much prefer MS 047 in the Gospels and MS 049 in Acts, Paul and the Catholics. In Revelation, I prefer MS 046, one of only three uncials that even has all of Revelation!
I am nowhere near scholarly enough to vote on this, but would say my favorite of all these might be the Ephraemi Rescriptus. Simply put, it is "Ephraem wrote over" a copy of Scripture, assuming (I guess) he had more insight than the words of Scripture. How akin to much scholarship today!
Why not vote for it, then, brother? Codex Ephraemi Syri Rescriptus (C/04) still has not a single vote (out of a measly four), wippee!
Because the poll was for the "best", and I'm a farmer, not a scholar like a Dr. Cassidy (sp.?). My response of "favorite" was merely a whimsical response to the idea that someone named Ephraem erased the words of Scripture to write down his own sermons. Why, I do not know. But that is also akin to much so-called, self-styled 'modern' scholarship, in the attitude taken toward the Words of Scripture. "Never mind what Scripture says; here is what I think it should say!" How much more arrogant can one get toward the written Word of God? :tear: Is it possible to become any more so?
