French Olivetan Bible 1535 arrived today
Well the 1535 Olivetan Bible finally arrived today;
It came in two books, softcover and a facsimile reproduction of the original Olivetan. I’m quite pleased that it contains the whole Bible including the Apocrypha. Text is crisp and sharp, the only problem is its an olde style gothic font, which is harder to read. I wish a scanner could OCR it, but the text would not come out as OCR is designed for Roman type fonts.
After buying the book, I came across two french king James bibles;
King James Française, which has a copyright 2007
I went ahead and bought a KJF of the New Testament and it should be arriving soon. The Old testament is not available in print, but it is available online.
It would be a big project making a french Yasha Ahayah Bible Scriptures, but this material and the Olivetan would be the base, as they follow the Textus Receptus.
I still have the Aleph Tav’s to add to the english YASAT not to mention the need to add the Apocrypha and books of Enoch, Jubilees etc. So much work so little time.
