I have read the two scans that you have sent me many times.
The manuscripts are very interesting and I had a great time reading
them. The reading was much easier than I had expect, in my total
experience with such material. However, P66 shows the begining
of John, and doesn't go far enough to show the name of Jesus,
which appears for the first time in John 1-18. To be exact,
P66 goes as far as OUDE EK QELHMATOS
ANDROS ALL' EK QEOU EGENNHQHSAN.
Manuscript P75 has the end of Loucas and the begining of
John.. The first line of the Lucas part says:
KAI EGENETO EN TWi EULOGEIN AUTON AU...
John runs from the begining until hO OPISW MOU ERCOMENOS
EMPROSQEN MOU GEGONEN, hOTI PRWTOS MOU
HN. hOTI EK TOU... end-of-page. If you send me the next page
of this manuscript, I will get to the name of Jesus... Could you
please send me the next page?
P.S. Be patient with me. Even in my wildest dreams I had
expected to put my eyes on such an ancient document, since I live in a
small town, without a large library... Thanks to you fellows
from B-greek (God bless you), I got quite a few pages of
the Gospels. However, the pages you have sent me don't show
the name of Jesus, while other material doesn't seem to
be old enough to make my point.
