Another manuscript by the scribe who wrote the Leningrad Codex

ETC BLOG: Sister of Leningrad Codex Discovered! (Peter Williams). This is a roundabout way of saying:
Congratulations to Kim Phillips, Tyndale House Research Associate, for discovering a manuscript of the Former Prophets by Samuel ben Jacob the scribe of the Leningrad Codex. This should make a significant difference to our understanding of the main manuscript used for the study of the Hebrew Bible today.
This sounds important for Masoretic studies and, in a considerably more indirect way, textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible. Follow the link for more.
