Product Description

This work is a companion volume to the fourth edition of the United Bible Societies' Greek New Testament (UBS4), published by the German Bible Society on behalf of the United Bible Societies early in 1993. It also makes a great companion to the Stuttgart Electronic Study Bible, which contains the critical apparatus of the NA27 Novum Testamentum Graece, and to Comfort & Barrett's Text of the Earliest New Testament Greek Manuscripts.

One of the chief purposes of the commentary is to set forth the reasons that led the Committee, or a majority of the members of the Committee, to adopt certain variant readings for inclusion in the text and to relegate certain other readings to the apparatus. On the basis of a record of the voting of the Committee, as well as, for most sessions, more or less full notes of the discussions that preceded the voting, the present writer has sought to frame and express concisely (a) the main problem or problems involved in each set of variants and (b) the Committee's evaluation and resolution of those problems.

    I have the leather hard cover edition ISBN: 3-438-06010-8. This is a commentary on the UBS4 GNT. It is to your benefit to know the Greek but without that you will still benefit from this book. Most of the time the UBS members by a majority of the vote,and after a review, selected the most difficult and shortest renderings to be the original text.Reasons are given for each variant selection, manuscripts involved, the problems with each variant, and more... This is a must have for anyone studying paleography! Add this to your library!

    Although a complete review of every possible variant would be too large to be functional, BM Metzger has addressed the significant textual variants and the reasons the committee chose the "best" one, with levals of confidence for each one. This gives the scholar a significant tool for understanding why we have the text we do, and how confident we may be in that text.
