Sister of Leningrad Codex Discovered!

Congratulations to Kim Phillips, Tyndale House Research Associate, for discovering a manuscript of the Former Prophets by Samuel ben Jacob the scribe of the Leningrad Codex. This should make a significant difference to our understanding of the main manuscript used for the study of the Hebrew Bible today.

The Tyndale House notice is here. The original article is online freely in the Tyndale Bulletin.


  1. Many thanks to Kim Phillips for putting together such a well-researched and clearly-presented article!

  2. I've added permalinks to the two catologued entries of L17 and links to view the digitised microfilm here—links absent from the article as best I could tell.
