Greek New Testament

Greek New Testament The Greek New Testament or Novum Testamentum Graece is an original Greek version of the New Testament. It was first published by Erasmus in 1516.

This term is now used to refer to the Nestle – Aland edition, which was named after the scholars who made the editing. The Nestle – Aland text is in its 28th edition and is the main source of most modern translations of the New Testament, as well as the main study book in academic circles. The first edition published by Nestle was in 1898, using the editions of Tischendorf, Westcott and Hort and Weymouth; the latter was later replaced by Weiss’ edition. Aland became an editor when the book was already in its 21st edition in 1952, and by the time the 25th edition had been published, he had expanded the critical apparatus, adding many more manuscripts. During the 20th century, a number of manuscript discoveries eventually led to a necessary revision of the text, which was concluded in 1975 and published four years later as the 26th edition. The current version of the New Testament is the 28th edition.

Earlier translations of the Bible heavily relied on Byzantine texts, such as Textus Receptus. The Greek New Testament started being used as a resource in England in 1881, at the Revised Version.
