The Society of Biblical Literature and Brigham Young University have recently teamed together to produce Multispectral Images (MSI) of the Greek materials from the Freer Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution.1 One of the goals of the project is to provide digitized images of the Freer codices that will be available for scholarly research.2 The MSI images have provided a new opportunity to look at the previously transcribed and collated materials using the latest and most advanced imaging technol- ogy. In working with these images, it has become apparent that in several instances the newly produced images reveal more text than could be seen by Henry A. Sanders.3 In two instances, the newly available materials from Pauline Codex I have revealed textual variants unknown to Sanders.
