Description: This volume presents a completely new transcription of P. Bodmer III, an ancient Coptic version of the book of Genesis and the Gospel of John that stands as an important witness to both the early Coptic and Greek traditions. For the first time, the transcription can be viewed side by side with digital images of the extant text. Over 100 corrections to Kasser's 1958 transcription make this work a crucial tool for serious New Testament scholars.
