Greek New Testament - RP 2018 available

Post by Peter Streitenberger » April 17th, 2018, 4:09 pm

Dear friends,

I received a copy of the Greek New Testament (RP 2018) some days ago and wrote a German review (if of interest: http://www.bibelgriechisch.info/Besprec ... RP2018.pdf), but I found an English text as description as well (see below).

Yours Peter

"The present volume displays the Greek New Testament according to its historically dominant transmissional form, known as the Byzantine Textform. In view of the significance of this text throughout the centuries, this compact edition should be of value to student and scholar alike for academic, personal, and ministerial purposes.

Most modern critical editions of the Greek New Testament present an eclectic form of text that primarily represents the localized Alexandrian-based manuscripts. Other available editions exhibit forms of the so-called Textus Receptus or the lectionary-based Patriarchal (Antio-niades) version of the Greek Orthodox Church. In contrast, the present edition reflects the regularly utilized consensus found among Greek continuous-text manuscripts that span the extensive geographic realm of the Byzantine Empire throughout at least its thousand-year history.

An apparatus at the foot of the page displays all differences between the Byzantine consensus main text and the Nestle-Aland 27th and 28th editions, as well as differences appearing in the Editio Critica Maior for the book of Acts. Alternative Byzantine readings are noted in a separate apparatus when the primary Textform is significantly divided.

The 27 New Testament books are ordered according to early canonical lists, with the General Epistles following Acts, and Hebrews placed between Paul’s letters to churches and to individuals.

The present edition thus provides an affordable Greek New Testament in flexible binding that conveniently fills a particular textual void in relation to research, study, and practical ministry.

Previous editions of this GNT were available online as a PDF. Will this edition also be available in that format?

As far as I know, Jonathan, yes, the readers edition 2016 is online and in between nothing more than improving accents or punctuations had to be improved (and I overlook it anyway, even the chapter headlines). For some of us, willing to have a print edition, this edition is ok, the electronic text for PCs will follow. There are some cheaper print editions - about 10 Dollars. The text is almost the same (besides some of the corrections named above). Yours Peter
