The Institute for New Testament Textual Research is located at the University of Munster. Their central task is to research the textual history of the New Testament and to reconstruct its Greek initial text on the basis of the entire manuscript tradition, the early translations and patristic citations. Foremost among the results of this research is the ongoing publication of the Editio Critica Maior. The Institute produces several more editions and a variety of tools for NT scholarship, including the concise editions known as the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece and the UBS Greek New Testament.
Jim West5 Stars Out Of 5If You have to Sell Something to Buy this Volume, Do ItOctober 19, 2017Jim WestQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Naturally, given that each of these editions of the Bible have been around for years now and been reviewed and available for examination by students, scholars, and exegetes theres no need at all to reinvent the wheel and review them all individually. The NRSV is an exceptionally well constructed edition of the English Bible. The 28th edition of Nestle-Aland is the standard scholarly text for a reason. And the Revised English Bible is, as I have said in several different ways at several different times, simply the best, most accurate, most judicious, and most exciting translation of the Bible in English yet produced.
It is with the latter point in mind that the present volume under discussion deserves attention: for it is the first edition to include the REB on facing pages with the Greek text of the New Testament. The Greek text is printed on every other page and on the facing page two columns consisting of the NRSV in regular print and the REB in italic print are made available.
The immediately obvious benefit of an edition of the Greek text like this is that while reading the Greek text, two superb editions of the English can be consulted immediately, without needing multiple volumes open on ones desk. Likewise, if the English text is being studied then access to the Greek text is immediate and simple.
Editions of the Bible which print the original languages (Hebrew and Greek) on pages facing an English version are superior to interlinears as well. The reader has to know the original language in order to locate words and phrases in verses that are consulted whereas with an interlinear the reader can pretend knowledge which he or she in fact does not possess.
One of the greatest frauds presently perpetrated against students and church folk is the lecturer or preacher pretending knowledge of the Biblical languages. This is normally done either by a fraudulent reference to one of the meanings provided by Strongs Concordance, a terribly outdated and essentially useless tool beloved of the linguistically illiterate; or by means of an interlinear. With that tool in hand, even the most inept pseudo-scholar can appear learned. However, such dishonesty usually becomes quite apparent as soon as the lecturer or preacher attempts to pronounce a Hebrew or Greek word and bungles it so miserably that anyone with as much as an elementary knowledge of the language catches the nonsense immediately.
In sum, then, the new NA28 with NRSV and REB is a superb resource for students of the Bible and is so much better than any interlinear that one may be tempted to acquire that such an acquisition (of said interlinear) would be foolhardy.
Many years ago a famed Biblical Scholar told his students to go and sell whatever they needed to sell in order to buy a Septuagint. I would modify that a bit and urge you to go and sell whatever you need to sell in order to buy this edition of the Greek New Testament. Mine goes with me everywhere. I cant leave home without it.
Snyder's SoapboxFruitland, IdahoAge: 35-44Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5Review of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece Greek English New TestamentDecember 10, 2014Snyder's SoapboxFruitland, IdahoAge: 35-44Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This Greek New Testament is a parallel New Testament with the Nestle-Aland Greek on one page and the New Revised Standard Version or NRSV and Revised English Bible on the opposing page. The New Testament arrived in a cardboard box from Hendrickson. It had airbag cushions and arrived undamaged. Upon opening the box I was presented with the New Testament wrapped in plastic shrink wrap. The cover is a blue textured hardcover, but it is very thin book board. It is almost exactly the same size as my Cambridge Clarion Bible. There are some notes on the translation in the front. This New Testament is printed and bound in Germany. It is a very nice sewn binding. I was a little doubtful of the book being worth $99.00 when I saw the cover, but once I opened it and saw the quality of the print and sewn binding along with the Greek, NSRV, and REB I thought better of it. I am not a fan of the NSRV. I would never buy that version as a standalone Bible. I believe that their gender inclusive directives for translating are not true to the overall context of the word of God. I am not very familiar with the REB. I was surprised that they were able to cram in the Greek and two English translations without making this New Testament bigger than it is. Of course being just a New Testament is the key to the size of this book. When you look at the inside covers of this New Testament you are seeing the only maps it has. If you purchased this I am certain you didnt do so for maps though. You probably want to do some Greek studies. For that purpose I dont think youll be disappointed. I am not sure what size the font is. It isnt specified in any of the information Ive seen. It appears to be approximately 8 point font. Ill have to e-mail Hendrickson and ask them. When I find out I will post the information as an update. The print is sharp and clear contrasting well against this cream colored paper. The paper is opaque and smooth. It feels like a high quality Bible paper. I already mentioned that on one page youll have the Greek and then on the other youll have the NRSV and the REB. The NRSV is in plain type and the REB is in italics. There is one gold color ribbon marker that. It appears to be purposely frayed on the end. The binding is very well done. It is sewn and flexible. I opened it right up and it didnt need any breaking in. It opens past flat when you hold it in one hand. I found it to be just the right size for reading or studying. In the back youll find the appendices. The only thing Id like to see is this type of New Testament with the NASB instead of the NRSV. So there you have it, my review of a neat little Greek New Testament with two English translations in parallel.
