Thread: BHS Apparatus

  1. #1

    Question BHS Apparatus

    At several locations in Exodus and Deuteronomy, I find the entry "Pap Nash" in the Apparatus, cf. e.g. Exodus 20:5. I can find nothing regarding this in either the Foreword or the Sigla list. I suspect it refers to a papyrus discovered by someone named Nash, but can't be certain. Would anyone here have any further information on this?

    Default Nash Papyrus

    Quick answer: The Nash Papyrus is a single sheet of papyrus from Egypt. Both provenance and dating are "debatable." A quick look at the epigraphy sort of reminds you of Qumran. That gives you an idea of the broad dating possibilities. It contains a version of the "ten commandments" and the "shema." Google "Nash Papyrus" for more information. It is an interesting piece.

    Wikipedia has a good, brief discussion indicating the importance of this small papyrus: Its black-and-white photo of the MS is clearly readable; harder to read but representing the condition of the MS more closely is the photo from Cambridge University:
