Hi everybody, greetings from the hills of West Arkansas (please don't hold 
that against me, not a native.)  I am nearly 60 and a strong lover of both 
Old and New Testament Textual criticism.  I am also on B-Hebrew list 
fellowship and enjoying much discussion on the influence of Hellenistic 
Greek culture on the Jewish-Hebrew writings, both before, during and 
following Christ and His apostles. I amso the owner-moderator of the old 
school Baptist fellowship, and also I am on The Historic Baptist 

I am an old school Partiuclar Baptist (some call us Hardshells.)  I am also 
the Curator of The Old Faith Baptist Library, all the known Particular 
Baptist writings during the 1600s.  Many we have placed into modern digital 
formating in Word 97, free for all who want them. I also have a strong love 
for Christology.]

I love all Biblical Greek translations.  Have been tranlsating off and own 
since the early 60s.  But, I do not consider myself a scholar in any way, 
only a learner.  So I am happy to find this list and look forward to your 
help on many, many points.

I am doing a lot of research on the different LXXs, more importantly the 
pre-Christ LXX, translated and published by Hebrews near 132 BC and the 
different attempts of Jewish and para-Christian Jewish folks following 
Christ beginning with Acquila.

One of my main points is the study of Old Testament quotations in the New 
Testament, the variants between the present Masoratic Text and the older 
Dead Sea Scrolls and their variants from the LXX and from what I believe 
was an older Hebrew Text.  The issues surrounding Isaiah 7:14 serve as an 
example of this.

Glad to be on this fellowship study list and look forward to much help,  
Debtor (Ron).
