Chris Jordan Joins IGNTP Committee

Dr. Christopher Jordan has been appointed new member of the International Greek New Testament Project.

Chris Jordan wrote his dissertation, "The Textual Tradition of the Gospel of John in Greek Gospel Lectionaries from the Middle Byzantine Period," under David Parker, University of Birmingham, 2010. Jordan promises to make a valuable contribution to the committee through his thorough knowledge about the lectionary tradition.

His dissertation is available at ETHOS (requires registration).

See our earlier report on Jordan's dissertation and successful defense here.

What is IGNTP?
The International Greek New Testament Project (IGNTP) exists to produce a comprehensive critical apparatus of the Greek New Testament.

It began in 1949, following on from the Critical Greek Testament project of 1926, and consists of a committee of European and American textual scholars which oversees the work. The fruits of this collaboration may be seen in the IGNTP edition of The Gospel according to St Luke (1984, 1987). The Gospel according to St John is currently in preparation.

  1. Yay! A researcher specialized in lectionary-evidence should broaden the range of perspectives. I found Jordan's dissertation to be a very handy source of data about the treatment of the Heothina-readings.

    Dr. Jordan, if you're reading this, would you happen to know what is the earliest instance of the Heothina-readings in any language?

    Does Severus of Antioch refer to them somewhere?

    Yours in Christ,
