comment What are the 4 evangelists' inconsistencies saying about level of accuracy in NT?
@JustinY Sorry I do not have any answers, have just been thinking about this and other passages for a long time. And it has been very frustrating. Despite what people might think, I did not write the this question criticise the scripture. However, I think the big issue has to do with modern theology is not willing to contextualise the scripture enough. It would not fit modern christian traditions.

A very interesting thing is happening here. This question had at point in time around 10 points. So it has clearly been voted down by a number of people. Only that tels me a lot. Good on you Brothers and Sisters, keep at it.

I do not understand why you are mentioning pronounciaton features of Hebrew. Have never heard any dialect of Hebrew that have gutterals, not even yemenite hebrew. You might still be right. However I fail to se how that has anything to do with the textual translation.

I'm not writing about quote marks or ellipsis. You are very close to making straw man argument, as the original verse is from Deuteronomy 6:4-9. Consisting in heart, soul, might. To be honest it looks like you by your elipsis argument are saying that J. was adding to Torah? If you look at the handwritten text I think you would understand how obvious it is that the text starts at shin-mem-ayin.

Thanks @Narnian for your answer, it is appreciated. I know about the issues in translating the Bible. In the light of Leningrad Codex with others, I know that Septuagint was not the best translation. However, (hypothetical) I would think that a back-translation from Septuagint to Hebrew would would come much closer than todays NT. In this case I do not think translation is the whole story.
