Greek Apocalypse of Peter

NEW TESTAMENT APOCRYPHA WATCH: Apocalypse of Peter (Greek text) (Mark Goodacre, NT Blog). Professor Goodacre has updated his transcription of the Greek Akhmim fragment. I don't seem to have noted the original transcription when he posted it back in 2005. I am happy to do so now.

A couple of past PaleoJudaica posts on the Apocalypse of Peter are here and here. Incidentally, the Akhmim manuscript (P.Cairo 10759) also contains most of the Book of the Watchers (1 Enoch 1-36) in Greek. The manuscript has 19:3-21:9 plus 1:1-32:6a.
