In the late 1800s, after his death, Sir John Newport's belongings were sold. Supposedly among them was a Greek manuscript purporting to be the final chapter of the book of Acts (since Acts 28 ends abruptly and is missing the typical "amen" which ends so many other NT books, some assume it was incomplete). This manuscript is a forgery, written for the purpose of promoting "Anglo-Israelism" (the false doctrine that the inhabitants of Britain and America are actually the "lost ten tribes" of Israel).
Among the proofs that it is a forgery is that no Greek manuscript has ever been presented, but only an English version claiming to be a translation of the non-existent Greek manuscript.
This download contains "Acts 29" as a bblx file (you will find the text in Acts 28). It also contains a short commentary file which was written by some who hold to that doctrine, thus they defend it's "authenticity."
Again, just to make sure there is no misunderstanding, this is a forgery, written 1800 years after the death of Paul. But it is interesting, which is why I am uploading it.
