JJim3 Stars Out Of 5Succint Greek TRAugust 28, 2014JJimQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3This edition of the Textus Receptus is very straightforward. That is, it contains only a small introduction, the Greek text, the verse numbers have been moved to the margins, and it has no critical apparatus--it's just a straightforward TR.
Now, as to the TR itself, the reader may find it helpful to know that the TR as we have it today was taken from the KJV (the KJV was based on about 7 different Greek texts, none of which were the TR--the TR was made to match the KJV). Since such is the case, the TR does not completely represent the Greek text of the New Testament--it just represents the final decisions made with regard to the KJV. If you want a fuller Greek text, you may want to consider the Nestle-Aland 28th edition (which differs with the TR in some 5,000 places) or the Robinson-Pierpont Majority Text (which differs from the TR in roughly 1,800 places) (depending on which line of reasoning you subscribe to--eclectic or majority).
Further, this particular edition of the TR does not list any of the alternate reading which the KJV translation committee had to sift through (the New testament of the KJV used to come with alternate translation notes, and some editions still do), hence it is a text that cannot, as it is presented here, be traced to any originating (not original--no originals have ever been found for the New Testament) manuscripts.
As this text (the TR) has no footnotes and since it is, essentially, a Greek translation of an English text (the KJV), it is practically useless for someone interested in sincere academic analysis of the Greek of the New Testament.
As a companion for the KJV, however, this Greek text serves it purpose admirably (though I would like verse numbers beside the verses they pertain to rather than in the margins).
Q: Is this is Greek AND English? Is this book both in the original greek texts and also the english translation or is it just in Greek?
This book contains only the Greek text.
