This state-of-the-art reverse interlinear New Testament, created in partnership with The German Bible Society and Logos Bible Software, breaks with the convention of traditional interlinear texts by keeping the English as the top-line entry and placing the Greek text underneath it. This approach allows you to see firsthand the accuracy with which the ESV translators rendered the Greek text.
This state-of-the-art reverse interlinear New Testament shows the English as the top-line entry, with the Greek text underneath it.
There are many reference tools that could be on the shelves of any serious student of the Bible. The English-Greek Reverse Interlinear New Testament is worthy of consideration. Based on the newer English Standard Version, an essentially literal version derived from the UBS 4th ed. Greek text and the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece 27th ed. Greek text, this reference begins with an excellent foundation for its interlinear features. The reverse interlinear provides the text in the ESV version with four interlinear features directly underneath each word.
First, one will find the Nestle-Aland 27th ed. Greek text with a numeric notation to indicate word order, since the Greek and English often use different grammatical syntax. Underneath the Greek text, one will then find the helpful transliteration of each Greek term used. Transliteration takes each Greek character in every term and gives the equivalent English character. This feature helps the reader know how to pronounce the Greek terms without having to read Greek. Underneath the transliteration is a full parsing of each Greek term. Parsing is written in a code which has a key at the bottom of each page, and a full explanation within the introduction pages to the interlinear. Under each parsing the reader will find a Strongs reference number for the Greek term for use with Strongs Concordance.
One nice aspect of how each Greek term is placed under the English text, is how the term is justified under the end of a phrase that only has a one word counter-part in the Greek. In the same way, if in the dynamics of translating, words are needed in the English text to increase readability, a bullet where a Greek term would be indicates that there was no direct translation of a Greek term. This works in the same way with Greek terms (often articles or qualifying terms). If a Greek term is not directly translated, a bullet will appear in the English text to indicate that the terms where translated within a subsequent English term. These examples are also given in the introduction.
The format of this interlinear gives the student of the Bible a quick way to reference Greek terms with accuracy, and budding confidence to begin parsing terms and understand their emphasis. Each interlinear comes with a CD which includes a searchable version of the entire interlinear with some extras. If anyone is looking for a reliable interlinear which uses a reliable version, formatted in an intuitive and accurate way, then this may be perfect for you. This would make an excellent reference for anyone who desires to begin to use the original language of the New Testament. Tom Gindorf, Christian Book Previews.com
