Cairo Genizah : Palimpsest: New Testament; midraš

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Seven pieces of a palimpsest containing the Pesiqta de-Rav Kahana (corresponding to the Mandelbaum (1962) edition, pp. 127, 130-133, 135-144 and 177) written over a New Testament lectionary (the gospels; Matthew 10:2-15; John 20:11-15). The upper script is Hebrew with sparse Palestinian vocalisation, and has been dated to the 8th or 9th century by Allony and Diez-Macho (1958-1959: 58). The under script is a Greek biblical majuscule that has been dated to between the 6th and 9th centuries. Tchernetska (2002: 248-249) believes that the 6th-century date is more likely.</p>
