This state-of-the-art reverse interlinear New Testament shows the English as the top-line entry, with the Greek text underneath it.
John Schwandt is a Fellow of Classical Languages at New St. Andrews College, where he teaches Greek and has previously taught Latin and Hebrew. He earned an M.A. from Westminster Theological Seminary and has since developed and is currently Director of the National Biblical Greek Exam (NBGE), an online exam that seeks to promote the study of biblical Greek.
C. JOHN COLLINS (PhD, University of Liverpool) is professor of Old Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary in St Louis. With degrees from MIT and Faith Evangelical Lutheran Seminary, he pursues such research interests as Hebrew and Greek grammar, science and faith, and biblical theology. He is the author of The God of Miracles.
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
everbelieverSydney AustraliaAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5An Excellent Interlinear ! Warmly Recommended.August 22, 2013everbelieverSydney AustraliaAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Delighted with my new Reverse Greek Interlinear ESV.
It may even be useful as a sneaky 'crash-course' in Greek; or a 'reviver' for older Bible students who haven't really immersed themselves in Greek before!
Need to be careful with the thin pages; but that IS what stops it being a 'Geisler door-stopper' thick tome.
Printing goes unusually close to the inside margins; somewhat thwarting the 'photo-copying brigade'.
Adore the included parsing codes. Reminds one of a wonderful (but far more costly) software package.
Very warmly recommended. And has a similar, KJV one surfaced?

In addition, with all of the study aids under each word, the serious Bible student can easily see the Greek pronunciation and syntax. I am extremely pleased with this New Testament and have already recommended it to my weekly Bible study group.

Eric L. HarrisMissouriAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Very Handy Reference ToolOctober 15, 2010Eric L. HarrisMissouriAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is going to be a tremendous help to me. I have a few other interlinear Bibles, but this one is unique in that the English is primary (in the ESV text) and the Greek is below the text; that is what makes it a "reverse" interlinear. This characteristic makes this New Testament a lot more practical for the average Christian that wishes to do word studies in the original language. You will have to have a Greek dictionary like Stong's or Mounce's to look up the meanings of words using the Strong's numbers that are below each word in the text. Any dictionary or concordance w/Greek helps that uses Strong's numbers will do. This is a great investment.
