The Greek New Testament, Produced at Tyndale House, Cambridge seeks to make a distinctive contribution by providing a text of the Greek New Testament that is based on the most recent scholarship and is rooted in the earliest manuscript witnesses, dating primarily from the fourth and fifth centuries and earlier. As noted by professor Geoffrey Horrocks (University of Cambridge), “The result of this groundbreaking research is an innovative and exciting Greek New Testament text.”
Produced at Tyndale House in Cambridge, England, this completely new edition of the Greek New Testament text was created under the oversight of editors Dr. Dirk Jongkind (St. Edmund’s College, University of Cambridge) and Dr. Peter Williams (Tyndale House, Cambridge). Together with their team of scholars, they have taken a rigorously philological approach to reevaluating the manuscripts—reexamining spelling and paragraph decisions as well as allowing more recent discoveries related to scribal habits in the earliest manuscripts to inform editorial decisions.

–Geoffrey Horrocks, professor emeritus of Comparative Philology, University of Cambridge
A first-rate edition of the New Testament text, behind which stands an extraordinary amount of work on the earliest Greek manuscripts. . . . Lucidly and handsomely presented. . . . A volume that all New Testament scholars will want to have on hand.
–Simon Gathercole, reader in New Testament Studies, University of Cambridge; Fellow and Director of studies in Theology, Fitzwilliam College
A welcome addition to the tools available to students and scholars of the New Testament. A commendable distinguishing feature is the effort to represent more directly aspects of ancient manuscripts, such as the nature and placement of sense-unit divisions, which can be of particular relevance for exegesis.
–Larry W. Hurtado, professor emeritus of New Testament Language, Literature, and Theology, School of Divinity (New College), University of Edinburgh
