In this episode of Hebrew Voices, Hebrew Gospels from a Vatican, Nehemia Gordon talks about how he discovered Hebrew manuscripts of Luke and John! These manuscripts have never been shared with the public before this was aired and are particularly interesting when compared to the Greek text. They are also another proof that the name of God is unequivocally Yehovah and clearly show the pronunciation of the name Yeshua.You can download a full transcription and translation of the surviving portions of the Hebrew gospels of Luke and John from the Vatican below. Elvira wrote: “I am so glad you are getting this out there to the world. I was able to read along with the download of the documents as you read them out loud. What a privilege! What an era to live in!”
I look forward to reading your comments!
I'm excited to finally be able to share with you an English translation of the Hebrew manuscript of the Gospels that I discovered in the early 2000's. All those years ago, I was at the National Library of Israel looking through a microfilm of miscellaneous manuscripts photographed at the Vatican Library when I came across three pages of the Gospel of Luke (1:1-35) and one page of the Gospel of John (1:1-13) in Hebrew. The microfilm was part of a what I call a "junk box" containing several hundred loose pages from numerous manuscripts written by different scribes in different periods. At the time, the catalogue of the National Library of Israel did not list the full contents of the Vatican junk box and made no reference to these Hebrew Gospels. The Vatican Library recently published color photographs of these documents on it's website, opening the door for me to share this with the world.
To help you study these fascinating manuscripts, I created a PDF with the full Hebrew transcription and English translation with links to the color photos on the Vatican website, which you can download.
