About the Author

Editor Bio 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.

The Nestle-Aland 27th edition (and United Bible Societies 4th edition) are the same text, with slightly different paragraph and punctuation conventions. The textual apparatus for the United Bible Societies edition is more focused to textual variants of significance to translations, while that of the Nestle-Aland is more focused to variants of significance to establishing the base text. Together they have formed the standard Greek text for the Western Church (i.e. Roman Catholics and Protestants).

Those wanting the standard edition for the Eastern Church should look instead for the Patriarchal text The New Testament: Original Greek (Koine) New Testament (Greek Edition).

This 28th edition of the Nestle-Aland makes about 30 updates to the base text of the Catholic Epistles Novum Testamentum Graecum Editio Critica Maior: Volume !V: Catholic Letters (Parts 1 & 2) (Greek Edition), while simplifying the bracket structure and updating the apparatus with some of the newer manuscript research that was used in the Editio Critica Maior.

These updates represent minor, but useful, changes from the 27th edition.

Those wanting a more thorough discussion of the textual basis for the Greek New Testament should consult Philip W. Comfort's commentary New Testament Text and Translation Commentary.

The most serious students of the Greek New Testament may wish to have a variety of editions in their library, but for most of us the choice will boil down to this new edition of the Nestle-Aland text with its rigorous apparatus criticus, or the almost identical UBS fourth edition, which mostly marches lockstep with NA as newer editions are produced and has a slightly less complete apparatus. My first Greek NT was the UBS Third edition, acquired over 30 years ago. But recently I have felt the need for an edition that reflected the most recent critical thought and provided the most complete critical apparatus. I chose the NA 28th over the UBS fourth, and it is the one I recommend to others.

Those who are first-time purchasers of a Greek New Testament may wish to know that prefatory material in this edition is provided in both German and English.

As far as I can tell, the text and textual apparatus for everything except the catholic letters is unchanged from the 27th edition. The treatment of the catholic letters has been completely reworked, with changes to the accepted text and a very different way of treating the textual apparatus.

The text of the catholic letters is based upon that of the Editio Critica Maior (ECM). I don't have a problem with this. I've long felt that the NA27/UBS4 had Jude 5 wrong, for example. The NA28 text has the textual variation I have favored based upon my own textual criticism. The problem is that the critical apparatus to the catholic letters is confusing and incomplete. Far fewer manuscripts are listed to support each varia lectio, in many cases, only a single manuscript is cited. This makes it impossible for the reader to do his/her own textual criticism because one cannot properly weigh the evidence in support of the various readings. I am very disappointed in this and feel it's a step backwards. I would have prefered the NA28 to have changed the text based upon the ECM, but to have left the critical apparatus from the NA27 in place.

If you decide to purchase NA28, don't discard your NA27; you'll need it for the textual apparatus.

As a pastor I value studying God's word in the original languages. The NA 28 has been a pleasure for me to study and use since purchasing it. In comparison to the NA 27, I found the introductory sections on how to use the critical notes much easier to understand. To me the most practical and useful tools are the massive amounts of cross references, the full text of variants in the apparatus and the one appendix that features allusions to the Old Testament. In having studied the 25th, 26th & 27th editions, the font of the Greek in the NA 28 is by far the easiest to look at over long periods of time. Overall the NA 28 has exceeded my expectations. I'm certain that it will be used greatly by God to extend the boundaries of His kingdom.

This is exactly what Nestle-Aland users have come to expect from previous editions.

If you have a previous edition, should you "upgrade"? Yes, but only if you must have the latest and greatest, or if you are seriously working with textual criticism in the Catholic Epistles, or if your professor requires it. Otherwise, it may not be worth the money

For those not familiar with NA 28, two changes are noteworthy.

First, the critical apparatus has been somewhat revised (probably not very important for most users).

Second, the text has changed in a tiny way and in a monumental way. Tiny, because only a handful of changes have been made, and these in the Catholic Epistles (thus, for perhaps 99% of Nestle-Aland users there is no substantial reason to update your NA 27). Monumental, in that in the Catholic Epistles the eclectic textual method of all previous editions has been abandoned for the new approach used in the Editio Critica Maior (of which only the Catholic Epistles have been published so far), namely a method called the Coherence-Based Geneological Method (CBGM). Of course this is of concern only to those interested in textual criticism.

For most, including most pastors, the most useful Greek New Testament is probably the UBS text, 4th edition (whose text is identical to Nestle-Aland 27), or the new UBS 5 (minor text adjustments to match Nestle-Aland 28), which will serve you well for decades.

The difference between the Nestle-Aland text and the United Bible Society's text? The texts themselves are identical, except for minor punctuation variations. The important differences are in the apparati underneath the text. The NA apparatus is concerned with variations among the manuscripts (but not all mss.
