Overview

For some time, Wilbur N. Pickering has felt that among the many hundreds of Greek manuscripts known to exist today, surely God would have preserved the original wording. After years of searching and comparing Greek New Testament manuscripts, he has concluded that God used a certain line of transmission to preserve that wording. That line is by far the largest and most cohesive of all manuscript groups, or families. It is distinguished from all other groups by the high level of care with which it was copied (Pickering holds copies of perfect manuscripts for 22 of the 27 books). It is both ancient and independent, and is the only one that has a demonstrable archetypal form in all 27 books. That archetypal form has been empirically, objectively identified by a wide comparison of family representatives, and it is indeed error free. As Pickering expected, that error-free text is not seriously different from some of the other “good” Greek texts. Nevertheless he has done an English translation based on it.

In the Logos editions, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality.

    The time and scholarship involved in these works is truly amazing. It seems a shame that it isn't ready for Logos yet.

    This work (both volumes) have given me a better understanding of both Textual Criticism and Exegesis. I've been so impressed by the work that I've been using it in teaching and study along side other translations (NKJV, NET, etc.). My hope is that its indexed like the others. A interlinear edition with the F35 text would be fantastic!

    As several others have noted, an interlinear version of WP's Greek text would be immensely valuable.

    I'm thinking I would be willing to pay more to get it to production faster if that were possible.

    Does this include the Greek New Testament as the title indicates, or a translation as the description seems to indicate?

    I know the author personally and sometimes I could enjoy their meticulous explanations on the manuscripts of the NT. Pikering devoted his life to this work and produced a version of the Greek text of the New Testament which, in his opnion, represents the autographs with nearly 100% purity. His apparatus is a wealth of knowledge and help greatly in identifying daas true words of scripture. Use it to compare with NA27 / 28, GNT, Byz and other texts.

    What is not obvious from the quick description here are the extensive notes/commentary given throughout both volumes. In the English translation the notes often fill as much or more of the page as the Scripture, so in a sense you could call it a "Study Bible". More than once I've found a translation or an explanation for a verse that make more sense than anything I could find in other translations or commentaries. The most poignant example is John 15:2, where the NIV translates "He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit..." Wilbur translates it, "He lifts up..". "Lift up" and "cut off" are both within the semantic domain of the Greek, but "lift up" makes more sense in the context, on which he elaborates in the notes. I'm looking forward to adding these books. Now all we need is an interlinear version of his Greek NT for us non-Greek scholars...
