How does a Christian review the Bible? Should not the Bible review the Chrisian?
The lexicon in the back is compact and handy for quick-reference (but not suited to deep exegesis). The critical notes are unobtrusive but handy and the font quite readable. If you want longer critical notes (e.g. more manuscript citations, more variations noted), get the "blue" Nestle-Aland rather than the "red" UBS4. The blue one doesn't have the lexicon, and is more aimed at academics, whereas the red is aimed at students and educated lay persons who want a good Greek NT. The blue one has a n ...more

Nestlé Aland 28th is my go to for scholarly work when I am doing textual criticism or exegesis, but this is simply a brilliant tool for students and those just coming out of seminary, etc. It is lightweight, clean text, and is not burdened down by large textual footnotes. I just completed my M.Div this summer, and have worked this into my morning study. Viz, translating about a half chapter to a chapter a day, with the goal of translating through the entire new testament in a year. Where the tex ...more

The volume of New Testament Greek resources available for the beginning to mid-level student have expanded greatly during the past few years. Among them was the 1st edition of A Reader’s Greek New Testament, published by Zondervan in April 2004. The updated 2nd edition of A Reader’s Greek New Testament was more recently published by Zondervan in November 2007. If you have any familiarity with the 1st edition, you may have had the same initial thought I did about this updated edition....what a pr ...more

I found this edition really helpful for my first read-through of the New Testament in Greek after I finished my studies. The footnoting of words that occur fewer than thirty times means that the reader can read the text without the need to refer continually to a lexicon. I still use my reader's Edition for reading and find that having the vocabulary available to me enables me to focus on parsing and concentrating on the meaning of the text. A very useful asset for anyone wanting to retain their ...more

I don't, of course, rate the scriptures; the scriptures rate me.

When I started earnestly trying to read the Greek New Testament, I had been studying Greek for over five years. It took me nine months, reading at the rate of about a chapter a day. These days, I rarely read it in English, I get so absorbed in Paul's passionate rhetoric, John's simple challenges, and all the other writings, high-level, low-level, or anything in between. I get more out of it every time, and have never looked back.

This is exactly what it says it is. The New Testament in Greek, which of course was one of earliest languages it was written in. I received this when I was attempting to learn Greek at the University of Toronto (I wasn't successful). My rating is based upon the English-language versions of the New Testament I have read, given that the subject matter is the same and I am presuming what is written in both versions to be relatively the same.

If you are a beginning Greek reader and at all interested in the history of early Christianity, definitely read the New Testament in Greek. This edition has a glossary, which makes it super convenient (no matter how little your Liddell).

Anyway, the Gospel of John is an easy Greek read that gives you the flavor of early Christian thought.

Does not list all variations of text, but does well enough. Dictionary section would be more helpful if extended - more words, more forms of nouns and verbs, and more definitions, especially when meanings current at the time the New Testament was originally written were given priority over traditionally accepted Christian meanings.

چیزی که در مورد این کتاب برایم ناراحت کننده است این است که در کشور ما
لااقل تا آن زمانی که من در جستجوی این کتاب بودم
هیچگونه چاپ رسمی از آن وجود نداشت و تنها افست های بی کیفیتی بصورت غیر رسمی و در بازار سیاه کتاب به فروش می رسید...

If I’m honest my predominant reaction is one of pleasure and relief that I’ve finished. Like the Old Testament, reviewed separately, it yielded much less insight than I had expected, or perhaps hoped for, and I’m disappointed about that. But I waded through it.

I had expected to find graphic evidence of the change of direction from OT to NT, the shift from a vengeful god to a loving one. Certainly, there’s quite a lot of talk to that effect, lots of talk about how you must love your brother, but

I've been a big fan of the Zondervan Reader's Greek New Testament ever since it was first published, and have written a couple of rave reviews of that product. However, it did have some flaws, of which the most significant was that Zondervan seemed to be unable to produce a bold, clear Greek font.

In their first edition, bizarrely, it was entirely in italics. Later versions corrected this, but produced an even harder to read font.

OK, this is supposed to be a review of this UBS version - but the p

The goal of many NT Greek students is to be able to read out of the Greek NT. This may be the only way proficiency in the language will be realized. The task of reading Greek is made much more difficult the more often one has to hunt down a lexicon to look up a definition for an unfamiliar word. Unfortunately, for most people, the lexicon is needed often enough to push them away from even attempting to read the Greek NT for themselves.

Indispensable. During an MA class at West Chester I wrote a research proposal about extensive reading. It is one of the best ways to go from the basic language tools one aquires in a basic grammar course to really understanding a language. The problem is, ER only works if the student knows about 90-95% of the vocab she encounters on the page. That is precisely what this GNT does. It allows the student to read without the need to stop and consult a lexicon. It is immensely helpful in building one ...more

Same text as the Nestle Aland (NA27)but with a different critical apparatus which is geared for translators (while the NA27 apparatus is geared from preachers/teachers). All this means is that the NA27 digs deeper into a few important textual variants explaining why this version was included while others were not. This version (UBS4) lists more more textual variants than the NA27, but does not go into much depth to explain them. It provides a reliability scale for each variant and moves on to pr ...more

The version of this book that I am reading is the 1968 printing. I have been reading it since 1974, when I took my first Koine Greek class at seminary. Since then, it has been my standard Greek New Testament for Bible study and sermon preparation. I must confess I have used it less and less as the years have passed. It has sat on the bookshelf more than it was in my hands. Let's face it, English translations of the New Testament are easier to read; plus there is the issue that it is either at ho ...more

I found the quality of this reader fantastic. The print was large and the binding good. The footnotes are helpful, but be aware that there are many occasions throughout where a definition is missing from the surrounding pages and the dictionary in the back. Some of the definitions are questionable, notably, malakos (soft) is suggested as male prostitute though the best commentaries and the scholarly lexica suggest passive homosexual partner. Arsenokoites (etymologically, one who has sex with men ...more

I wish I had a book like this when I first began Greek 10 years ago. I believe it could be an aid to beginners and advanced students alike, though it is perhaps best suited for students with some understanding of Greek who are looking to become more skilled at reading the Greek and parsing verbs. This edition will do both (difficult words are defined and parsed at the bottom of each page). Like any language aid, someone could use this Greek text as a crutch. However, a prudent learner would unde ...more

I've had my 2nd Edition "Reader's" for some time now and have enjoyed using it. The text has a number of advantages, including footnoted definitions to uncommon words and some cross-referencing textual notes. The font is an improvement over the hideous italicized font of the 1st edition, but can still be an eyesore with odd kappas that look like chis. The footnotes, while helpful, are presented in a paragraph-style format that is disorienting at times. In short, this is a useful tool for the cas ...more
This is great. Even with minimal familiarity with Koine Greek it is easy to access the New Testament in its original language. Each page of text includes vocabulary for the less-used words in the NT, and the words uses 30+ times are found in a small dictionary in the back of the volume. I haven't explored any other Greek New Testament volume, but this one seems perfect.
Talbot Course: All the Exegesis courses!

This Bible becomes a part of you! If you get, MAKE SURE TO KEEP the little chart that it comes with! You're going to need it for Exegesis.

ALSO get the Textual Commentary of the Greek New Testament too! It explains why they gave the letter grade they did in the UBS.
