Text criticism in the not too distant future!

CurteaDeArges

I have used Logos for 20 years now. And speaking of futuristic software, I’m a fan of science fiction and occasionally write stories for my own amusement. For those with lots of imagination, enjoy a short story about the future of Bible study! This should be considered “hard” science fiction, since all the texts and technology is present or doable within the near future; and the list of missing books given in the last paragraph are what scholars would hope to find through new research.

Don’t mind the Greek words, everything is translated in some way or another.

  1. Yes, definitely…really any of the ancient authors you mention in your story.

  2. Excellent story. I was on the edge of my “phone” the whole time. Discovering Papias’ Oracles would truly send shockwaves throughout the world of Biblical scholarship.

    • Thanks Timothy! That and Hegessipus, maybe.
