Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This Beautiful book presents the Eastern Orthodox Church's traditional or patriarchal Greek text of the New Testament. That is all - just the text! There is a brief preface (in Koine Greek) with an English translation in the appendix. To this extent, it is useful to have direct access to the traditional text of one significant section of Christianity; and for the preservation of the Greek New Testament text, this is the most important part - the Greek Orthodox Church.
The text contains no foot notes, no marginal references and no apparatus. Just the naked text. And this text has some surprising characteristics compared to the Robinson-Pierpont (RP) and Zane-Hodges Majority text (MT) version of the Byzantine text:
* Luke 17:36 is included despite being absent in MT and RP
* Acts 8:37 is included despite being absent in MT and RP
* Acts 15:34 is included despite being absent in MT and RP
* The comma Johanneum (1 John 5:7, 8) is included despite being absent in MT and RP.
These instances are odd inasmuch as these verses are absent from almost all Greek MSS and have been added very late from Latin.
Thus, this Patriarchal Text appears to be mid-way between the MT and Textus Receptus. The book is a delightful reference for what the late Byzantium church used for its liturgy.

Comes from the Church, not archaeologists. For some reason people forget that the Greek New Testament is a living book - not one that was lost and then somehow recovered by conscientious Protestant scholars. It has been in use continuously by the Greek-speaking Church from the time it first came out of the same Church.

As one who has not bought into the conventional wisdom concerning "recovery of the lost text," I find it refreshing that the Eastern Church has available a Greek text which, while probably not perfect, is as close as we may come to the original today. Instead of one determined by a vote of 5 or 6 scholars, this text is the one commonly received by the Greek and Russian churches from time immemorial. As a Protestant Christian I delight in honoring my Orthodox friends who have preserved this text when the entire western church had defaulted to a translation, Jerome's Latin Vulgate, and now has widely accepted theories which do not accord with the historical record we have. For instance, a recent Greek edition in the west is done with the overt assumption that changes in the ancient text were done by men of good will, when the fathers repeatedly have written that there were intentional corruptions which had crept in as early as the first few centuries. I trust Christians in the Nicene age to be better judges of the original than Americans in the twentieth century.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By George on February 15, 2014
Format: Paperback
This edition offers the original Greek text of the New Testament, the most authoritative version, coming from Byzantium and being used even now in Greek-speaking Orthodox churches.

* Note, that if you prefer hardcovers, there is now a Hardcover Edition of the Greek New Testament.

The English text at the end of the volume is not a 'commentary,' just a brief (6 pages long) note explaining crucial aspects of the importance of this particular version. This note was reviewed by American editors who confirmed the absence of 'broken' English. It is now revised and (still) available for anyone to read for free at ellopos.com/blog/?p=1555 You are welcome to use Elpenor's contact pages at ellopos.net/elpenor/contact.asp to give your opinion about this note regarding the language or even the views expressed there.

I'd like to thank all scholars who contact Elpenor at elpenor.org expressing their admiration for this edition of the original New Testament. You are really encouraging. Thanks a lot!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Prompt delivery, as I always find with Amazon. The Patriarchal Greek Text is still a relatively-unknown Greek text outside of the Orthodox Church. Interesting option for non-Orthodox Bible students. Only [slight] complaint is that, from day one, the cheap plastic-laminated front cover curves up away from the book, with humid weather. Also, the author's English essay at the back of the book, "Opening the New Testament", consists of rather awkwardly-phrased, somewhat broken English in some places, as if English is the author's second language. But having the Patriarchal Text is what I bought the book for, not for the commentary.
