Sinaiticus authenticity - discussion, research, study, analysis resources

This is to direct you to discussions on all sides of the issues.
The one-stop traffic cop.


three fun-damental spots:

PureBibleForum -
the white parchment, the medieval Hermas and Barnabas, anomalies galore, Simonides puzzles "you are here"
Is the "World's Oldest Bible" a Fake?[/B] - David W. Daniels

Videos - Youtubes:

David W. Daniels - Youtubes (15-20 minutes each)

Must See

Facebook - most active discussion



e.g. in the more neutral type of environment, we have forums which have had some solid discussions, like:

Facebook - New Testament Scholarship Worldwide

Facebook - Eureka! Medieval Manuscripts on the Web

On Yahoogroups (need index to specific posts .. or search, e.g. "Simonides" ):



Web forums:

Coloring the Truth: Sinaiticus Jan, 2016 - 1 page

the white parchment Friderico-Augustanus - Oct 29, 2014 - 23 pages

That Sinaiticus Show - April, 2018 - 2 pages



While others have kaboshed discussion, or basically only allowed the contra harumphs, like:

Facebook - New Testament Textual Criticism
Jan, 2017 harumph thread, when colouring of ms. is pointed out and questioned ! :)

And the:
Evangelical Textual Criticism blog
which is essentially ruled by some Brit scholars that are simply too close to the British Library action to step back and smell the herb tea.


Plan to be added to this traffic cop page:

current discussions
Snapp authenticity defense and Steven Avery response.
review of good auxiliary studies - Bryan Ross on Youtube
new paper as summary of PBF expositions

review of books that have problems - Bill Cooper and David Sorenson
