The Greek New Testament with Expanded Dictionary


Product Description

Bruce Metzger calls the Westcott-Hort text "The most noteworthy critical edition of the Greek Testament ever produced by British scholarship." In their monumental critical edition of The New Testament in the Original Greek, Cambridge professors B. F. Westcott and F. J. A. Hort established the Greek text that has become the essential basis for nearly all subsequent editions and English translations. Through their groundbreaking reconstruction of New Testament textual history and their rigorous reexamination of the manuscript evidence, Westcott and Hort inaugurated a new era of textual study that has set the stage for all subsequent work. Beyond preserving the landmark text, this new edition offers students and scholars alike a handy and affordable Greek Testament for day-to-day use that includes English headings, synoptic parallels, and complete references to Old Testament quotations. This edition also includes a revision and expansion of Alexander Souter's A Pocket Lexicon of the Greek New Testament. Long a favorite among biblical scholars, Souter's Pocket Lexicon offers concise yet clear English definitions and helpful grammatical information on every Greek word used in the New Testament. A Foreword by renowned New Testament textual scholar, Dr. Eldon J. Epp, sets the Westcott-Hort text in historical perspective for contemporary readers.

Features:

  • Detailed apparatus comparing the Westcott/Hort text with differences in the 27th edition of Nestle/Aland and Robinson/Pierpont Byzantine editions
  • Complete references to Old Testament citations and synoptic gospel parallels
  • English section headings for easy navigation
  • Revised and expanded Souter Greek dictionary
  • Bible maps

Reviews

“Here is another valuable new reprint by Hendrickson Publishers who have made so many other older scholarly volumes available to the contemporary student of the Bible. Souter’s Pocket Lexicon, first published in 1916 by Oxford Press, is the most useful and authoritative of the smaller lexicons. and I myself would not be without it. A 1935 edition of the same always sits on my desk, ready for consultation.

“Eldon Jay Epp in his Foreword explains the development of the Westcott-Hort Greek NT (which gave priority to the Alexandrian text tradition) that was a landmark in the displacement of the Textus Receptus. Epp issues appropriate advice and cautions about how to use the present volume, for much has happened in the field of textual criticism since the days of Westcott and Hort. The eclectic Nestle-Aland edition has become the standard for most students of the Greek NT. The Robinson-Pierpont edition (2005) is a recent scholarly attempt to represent the Byzantine textual tradition. Here, then, is a volume that places in the hands of the student the three most common approaches to the text of the NT that have influenced modem research on the Greek NT.” — Reformed Theological Review

“This volume is a “new” version of a well-known edition: it presents the text (reset in a different typeface) and much of the formatting and other features of the “hand edition” (Macmillan, 1885; Harper & Brothers, 1882) of Westcott & Hort’s famous 1881 edition of the Greek text. English subject headings have been added, and a comparative textual apparatus (new to this edition) displays the differences between the Westcott-Hort text, UBS/Nestle-Aland, and the Robinson-Pierpont edition (2005) of the Byzantine text “that have exegetical significance” (but does not note purely orthographic differences). The useful lexicon is a revision (updated in light of new discoveries and current English usage) of the famous 1916 lexicon created by Alexander Souter; many of the changes and additions are aimed at making it easier to use. The brief explanation of Westcott and Hort’s textual principles, also taken from the “hand edition,” is an excellent summary of their famous Introduction, and it is good to have it again available. Epp’s foreword places both the text and the principles upon which it is based in historical context. A sewn binding (that lies flat) and sturdy covers complete the package. In all, a serviceable, affordable, and not unattractive edition of the Greek text + lexicon that alerts its users to significant instances of textual variation (though readers will have to utilize other editions to ascertain the manuscript support for them).” —Religious Studies Review

    This is a great reading Greek testament. the binding is like a real book, solid and well done. The apparatus is clearly presented with the Robinson Pierpont MT and the Nestle Aland featured with W-H's data. The updated Souter's 1916 Lexicon in the back is concise and very useful for good definitions (though not for rare forms),all in all, I prefer it to Barkley Newman in UBS. For reading, I prefer this edition over UBS4 for feel and typography. Plus, the W-H is the most Alexandrian text readily available, it has the feel of ancient days.
