A 2-in-1 resource that's designed specifically for extensive research, textual criticism, and other academic endeavors. Featuring both the Rahlfs-Hanhart Septuagint (Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament) and the 28th edition of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece, this user-friendly tool includes critical apparatus, cross-references, and more.
Since its first publication in 1935, Alfred Rahlfs' Septuagint edition has provided an important basis for Septuagint research worldwide. To ensure that this will continue to be the case in the future, the internationally acclaimed Septuagint researcher, Robert Hanhart, has re-edited the German Bible Society's reference edition of the Rahlfs-Septuagint. The Greek Bible text and the critical apparatus were corrected and supplemented in far more than a thousand individual places. As of now, the resulting—favorably priced—"Editio altera" will be the new definitive Septuagint reference edition. From now on, for any academic work performed on the Greek Old Testament, the following equation will apply: Septuagint = "Rahlfs-Hanhart"!
- The definitive reference edition of the Septuagint
- With over a thousand improvements and supplements to text and apparatus
- Revised by one of the world's leading Septuagint researchers: Prof. Dr. Dr. Robert Hanhart
Following intensive preparatory work, the new edition of the Novum Testamentum Graece (»Nestle-Aland« or »NA28«) is now being published. Thus this standard and globally preeminent reference among Greek New Testament editions is available in a fundamentally revised and improved edition. One focus of the revision was on the critical apparatus whose structure was simplified. For instance, the combination of variants using »sed« or »et« and the distinction between consistently cited witnesses of the first and second order have now been removed.
In addition, the readings of the newly discovered Papyri 117-127 are listed for the first time, opening up interesting perspectives particularly for the Acts of the Apostles. In the Catholic Epistles, this edition has been made consistent with the »Editio Critica Maior«. This led to more than 30 modifications in the main text and resulted in a critical apparatus which is newly compiled in its entirety for this section and includes a new selection of witnesses and variants. The cross-references in the margin were also systematically revised and supplemented mainly with references to early Jewish literature.

Jasper R5 Stars Out Of 5Worth the MoneyNovember 7, 2017Jasper RQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Having been using this book to a big extent since I bought it over a year ago.
PROS. Basically it's a condenced version the scholars use, availible to the public for study. NA28(NT) and Septuagint, in one book. Aside from the main text, it includes the variations of various cedexes (BSA.. etc) and papyri. The preface explains the history of both NT and OT quite well.
CONS: The color of the cover vears out rather quickly. The book itself is disproportionate (too small and too thick)
Personaly, I havent found any other alrernative for both texts in one book. Alfred R, and Nestle-A prited by GBS, are probably the best for serious study. Even Greeks use them. Would recommend a book cover.
Abram KJAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Here's a short review, then a longer oneJanuary 23, 2014Abram KJAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Short review: well-constructed, great to have an all-Greek Bible. It's expensive, and essentially a re-binding of Rahlfs (same typesetting, etc.) and NA28. But some may want it anyway--it's certainly built to last.
Long review: search for "Words on the Word: The Bible You Would have Brought to your 3rd Century Church Service," which includes pictures and more thorough analysis.
WyoBillCasper, WYAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent ProductDecember 3, 2013WyoBillCasper, WYAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am still learning Greek, and I love having the Septuagint and New Testament together in one book. I translate out of it and I take it to Adult Bible Class to work on vocabulary. It is a little thick, but I find it lays open just fine. The print is the same as found in each individual title. If you are serious about reading from the Septuagint, I would highly recommend this book. If you work only out of the Hebrew Scriptures in the Old Testament, then I would recommend the Biblia Sacra (Hebrew OT and Greek NT). I have both because I will be doing work out of both and I don't think they will be around in a few years, especially the Biblia Sacra. I would highly recommend this product.
