When I learned that the NIV translation committee selected a corrupt Greek Gnostic alteration, not a translation, as its base for the New Testament translation and additionally left approximately 5% of the Greek words untranslated I became alarmed. When I explored the the beliefs and doctrines of the men who did this I became more alarmed. I also learned that the later versions of concordances have been adapted to fit the new "translations" and are not reliable references. So I did a little research into how we actually got our various Bible translations and was relieved to learn about Jay P. Green's Interliear Bible translation in both the New Testament and the Old Testament. I keep a concordance by my side as I go back and forth from my Bible to this four volume Hebrew and Greek translation. It really helps me understand subtle nuances of scripture. It has a good hardcover binding and because it is divided into four books, is light weight and easy to carry. The Hebrew Old Testament reads from right to left and the Greek New Testament reads from left to right. The pages are bright white and clean.The print is small but not too small. If you have vision problems you may need a good pair of glasses. I love this set of books because I am not a Greek or Hebrew student, yet it helps me understand God's word a whole lot more.
A very useful tool in studying the Scriptures using the literal method of translation from the Received Text and the Masoretic Text, the same texts that are the original languages that are the basis for the King James Version of 1611.
Very excited to find this set and at a great price. If you want a resource for looking up the true meaning of the actual Hebrew words used in the Bible, this is what you are looking for. Sometimes the translators did not choose the best word/words to impart the intended or full meaning of a word or phrase so this set of books is a valuable study resource for obtaining proper interpretation.
I got this set of 4 Interlinear Bibles for a gift. When I received the Bibles and saw how wonderful they were going to be for studying. I had to order a set, as well. I gave them a perfect score. I thought the writing in the Bibles were a nice size (not extremely small). I love having the Hebrew/Greek translations along with the Strong's number that I can do some further investigating on passages that are hard to understand. Extremely pleased on the quality & the price.... can't wait for my set to arrive.
