New York Man Finishes Writing Out Entire Bible By Hand

I'll bet he still doesn't know the basic truths or the theme of the Bible! But at least he wrote Jehovah's name over 7,000 times!  :lol: 

 

 

Four years after he began his project to write out every word of the Bible, Phillip Patterson penned the very last lines Saturday at an upstate New York church

.

"Every single curly-q, every single loop, it was all worth it," said Patterson, 63, moments after inking the final two verses of the King James Bible. "I'm really going to miss this writing."

 

It took Patterson just a few minutes to copy the final lines of the Book of Revelation before a crowd of about 125 people at St. Peter's Presbyterian Church in Spencertown. He ended the ceremony by saying "Amen."

 

Patterson, of Philmont, began copying the complete King James Bible in his neat, looping handwriting in 2009. He spent two years copying the first five books of the Bible as a prototype before starting fresh. He said he'll spend about another year working on the book's binding and covers before donating the fully completed Bible -- more than 2,400 pages -- to St. Peter's as a gift.

Just to had this, if he had been copying the NWT he would have written the name of God 7210 times :)

The Tetragrammaton appears 6828 times on the hebrew text + 141 restorations on the hebrew scriptures and 237 on the Greek ones

I don't understand. The NWT was never mentioned in the article?

 

Yes, but you're the one that brought up God's name 7,000 times.  That opened the door to comments on the NWT.  That, and Surfergir's Pioneer Classmate.

 

We had the fleshly brother of our CO (who was also a CO) visit our hall and give a talk.  He had a return visit long ago that did this same thing.  He would write the Bible out by hand, including all of Jesus words in red ink.  When he'd finish, he'd start over.  This guy gave the CO's brother the Gospel of John written by hand.

The reason I wrote as been answered by Shawn ;)

Just to complement you saying the 7000 times...

 

I see! I mentioned the KJV because that is the one that was hand-copied. I said he wrote Jehovah's name "over 7000" times thinking of the "new version" of the KJV that is out that restores Jehovah's name. We know the NWT uses it in it's proper place. But, I see now why it was brought up.  :)

Someone chose to put it back in - http://jwtalk.net/forums/index.php?/topic/5662-after-400-years-the-divine-name-is-back-in-the-king-james-version/?hl=%2Bking+%2Bjames+%2Bjehovah

 

The thread talks aobut source. And it links to the other threads.

 

Thanks, Jer. I haven't quite made it through ALL the archived files of the forum yet. This is VERY interesting and important to know where I live because many people use the KJV. We had just gotten accustomed to the idea that there was an "Old" one and a "New" one. Now we must factor in this "Newer" one. In this case, newer IS better! :bringiton:

Unfortunately almost all the portuguese versions are doing the oposite...

But I have two hard copies of one of the best known translations, one old and one new... in the old one there are several appearances of God's name and on the new almost zero... I showed this two versions to a RV who was questioning NWT and showed also Rev 22:19 and it was a shock to him seeing the difference...

You are talking about the Divine Name King James Bible which came out 2 years ago online and is now available as a hard copy. On their web pages they use our reasons for restoring Jehovah -except in Christian Greek Scriptures -although they admit it should be there.  http://www.dnkjb.net/
