The Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text, with Apparatus
Thomas Nelson 1985
This publication of The Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text marks the first time in the twentieth century that a critical edition of the Greek New Testament has used the vast bulk of extant manuscripts as a basis for its text. This text therefore represents a sharp departure from the kind of text found in the currently popular third edition of the United Bible Societies Greek Testament and in the twenty-sixth edition of the Nestle-Aland text. The Majority Text New Testament abandons the one-hundred-year-old theories of Westcott and Hort and the resulting reliance on a few older Egyptian-based manuscripts. It offers students and scholars of the Greek New Testament a significant and viable option to the form of text that has enjoyed currency in recent decades, but which cries out for critical reassessment.
