Abstract

This dissertation is an analysis of a pattern of redactional doublets within the early 5th CE Greek-Latin bilingual New Testament manuscript of Codex Bezae (D), specifically in the Gospel of Luke. Seven doublets are examined in comparison with Codex Vaticanus (B). As background, the aspects of possible harmonisation, prophetical interpretation during the Second Temple Period, use of the Elijah/Elisha motif, and Jewish rabbinical hermeneutics, support the thesis that this pattern of specific repetition is representative of the author/redactor’s controlling hermeneutic. The conclusions of this study reveal that (1) this pattern is prophetical/affirmational in agreement with the aforementioned methodology during the period of the exemplar, and (2) the homogeneity of theological themes, i.e. soteriological, eschatological, and pneumatological, support an early date of origin in the 2nd century CE.
