Seller: pattyspreciouspicks (2,975) 100%, Location: Herriman, Utah, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 362158450611 When one hears about a textual variant in the Bible, the reaction should not be, "I've never heard of that before!" or "That's not in my King James Version of the Bible!" but rather the response should be, "What was originally written by Mark in his gospel?" Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE BN It must first of all be remembered that a characteristic of the gospel of Mark is that the name “Jesus” is used quite sparingly. So, looking at the story in the 10th chapter of Mark, we have the famous story of the blind man named Bartimaeus, who was begging at the side of the road outside Jericho, and when he heard that Jesus was near, shouted out to him for mercy. Jesus then asked him what he wanted, and Bartimaeus replied that he wanted his sight. Then Jesus affirmed, “Go you away. Your faith has made you whole.” At this point Mark 10:52 says that immediately Bartimaeus received his sight, followed by the simple statement that “and he followed him in the way.” This is strongly supported by the Greek Codex Sinaiticus, the Greek Codex Alexandrinus, the Greek Codex Vaticanus, the Greek Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus, the Greek Codex Bezae, other Greek uncials, many Greek minuscules, Old Latin manuscripts, Jerome’s Latin Vulgate (as seen here), the Sinaitic Syriac, the margin of the Harclean Syriac, the Sahidic Coptic, and the Bohairic Coptic. Later some scribe added to the text the name “Jesus,” which then made the final statement: “and he followed Jesus in the way,” but that is NOT what was originally written by Mark. This later version is what is found in the inferior King James Version, but it does not represent the original text as written by the evangelist Mark. Another aspect concerning this variant at Mark 10:52 is that when this earliest gospel was used independently by Matthew and Luke they only saw the older statement of “and he followed him in the way” in Mark, and used that in their respective gospels, because the change to Mark’s text by adding the word “Jesus” at this point did not occur until later. The winner of this eBay auction will receive the original leaf from the 1483 Latin Bible, as well as a xerox copy of the Latin text, with each of these marked (see the last scanned image), with the marks made by someone who has a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies, received from the University of Birmingham in Birmingham, England. This is an absolutely amazing leaf of an incunabula Bible. Bibliographic description in Frederick R. Goff, "Incunabula in American Libraries," as # B-579.
