New Testament

The Greek New Testament

4th revised edition
B. Aland, K. Aland, J. Karavidopoulos, C. M. Martini, and B. M. Metzger, editors.

This Greek text, established by an international and interconfessional committee, is identical with that of the 26th and 27th editions of Novum Testamentum Graece by Nestle Aland except for some minor punctuation differences. The apparatus includes only those textual variants that involve significant differences in meaning for translators. For each variant, extensive manuscript evidence is cited, and an indication is given of the relative degree of certainty for each textual decision. A separate apparatus provides information on major differences in punctuation. The Introduction and section headings are in English. The appendices include: index of quotations (both in OT and NT order), index of allusions and verbal parallels, list of principal manuscripts and versions, and list of principal symbols and abbreviations. The text in this 4th edition is the same as in the 3rd edition (1983). However, the selection of passages for the apparatus has undergone considerable revision. The evaluations of all sets of variants cited in the apparatus have been reconsidered.

1993. 18.7 x 12.7 cm. 979 p. Maps, key to sigla.

Novum Testamentum Graecum

Editio Critica Maior
Published by the Institute for New Testament Textual Research, Münster.

The Editio Critica Maior of the New Testament exhibits the history of the Greek text through its first millennium as documented in manuscripts from the second century onward. It provides scholars engaged in the tasks of exegesis and textual criticism with all the relevant materials found in Greek manuscripts, patristic citations, and the versions. The evidence cited includes many textually significant manuscripts that have hitherto been either slighted or completely ignored. This now opens the way for a new understanding of the history of the text.
