Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author focuses on the name of God and the self-identification formula and how they appear in the Old Greek Schøyen Leviticus Papyrus. He analyzes the name of God and the self-identification formula 'I am the Lord' in the Greek of the Schøyen Leviticus Papyri, dated to the end of the second or beginning of the third century C.E. and one of the oldest extant papyri of the Greek Leviticus. According to De Troyer, the papyrus seems to be an important witness to the Old Greek with regard to the self-identification formula. The author makes the following conclusion: MS 2649 firmly stands in the tradition of the Old Greek text of the book of Leviticus. It contains some pre-Hexaplaric corrections towards the MT.

Keywords: God; Greek Leviticus; old Greek Schøyen Leviticus Papyrus; pre-Hexaplaric corrections
