Westcott and Hort’s Introduction to the New Testament in the Original Greek is one of the most important, ground-breaking books in New Testament Studies. It spells out the techniques of modern text criticism (the science of examining manuscript evidence to try to determine the original text) and influenced every modern edition of the Greek New Testament published since. The first section of the book outlines the principles of text criticism, and the second section, Notes on Selected Readings, applies these principles to hundreds of passages in the New Testament—in essence making a critical apparatus or textual commentary on important passages. In the Logos Bible Software edition, the application section will show in the Exegetical Guide with other critical apparatuses.
With Logos Bible Software, this volume is completely searchable, with passages of Scripture appearing on mouseover, as well as being linked to your favorite Bible translation in your library.
