It includes the core texts necessary for in-depth original-language research. You’ll get access to the critical texts and apparatuses for the NA28, BHS, and BHQ, as well as the UBS5 text. It’s a must-have collection of the core texts that any textual critic or original-language scholar needs.

This bundle also contains the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia with text critical apparatus and linguistic WIVU database, plus the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia: Workgroep Informatica Constituency Tree Analysis. The new WIVU database allow for a precise overview on how the single textual elements of a specific text passage are analyzed and hierarchically organized.

  • Original language editions with critical apparatuses
  • Special lemma search—find all inflected forms of a word by simply entering the infinitive
  • Parallel Bible versions
It really is a pleasure to look up and search in ways never thought possible before these great electronic resources. I must confess that the ‘wow’ factor remains high even after roughly three months of use.

—Rubén Gómez, Bible Software Review

With the critical apparatuses, a good selection of modern versions in European languages, as well as the potential that lies in the WIVU database, the Bible Society is to be congratulated for offering an electronic product that is unlike any other available Bible software.

The Greek New Testament, Fifth Revised Edition

Sometimes referred to as the critical text, this is today’s most widely used Greek New Testament. It is the basis for nearly every Bible translation in the past 100 years. The Greek text, punctuation, and formatting reflects that of the UBS 4th Edition. Each word carries with it searchable morphological data along with lexical forms and English glosses. The Logos version of UBS5 will include morphological tagging enabling you to conduct cutting-edge word studies utilizing you’re entire Logos library.

NA28 with Critical Apparatus

  • Editors: Barbara Aland, Kurt Aland, Johannes Karavidopoulos, Carlo M. Martini,  and Bruce M. Metzger
  • Edition: 28th
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 1,008

The 28th edition advances on the previous scholarship of the NA27 through the text-critical insights and decisions from the Editio Critica Major. As a consequence of these alterations the Nestle-Aland has, for the first time, a different presentation for different parts of the text. The Catholic Letters were revised according to a fundamentally new concept which in the long run will be adopted for the entire edition. The revision of the remaining texts was confined to a thorough inspection and rearrangement of the apparatus, while the basic structure was left untouched.

  • Volumes: 2

Biblia Hebraica Quinta is a diplomatic presentation of text and Masorah (magna and parva) of the manuscript EBP. I B 19a in the Russian National Library in St. Petersburg, commonly known as the Leningrad Codex. This edition is based on new color photographs made by the Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center of Claremont, California. The oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, it serves as the base text against which other witnesses are collated.

A general introduction in English, German, and Spanish presents this edition and characterizes the text and Masorah of the base text, the particular use of resources, the relation of BHQ to BHS and previous editions, the standards of collation and citation of witnesses, and a comprehensive list of sigla and abbreviations in the edition.

An introduction to each book discusses the particular textual features of that book and characterizes the ancient witnesses. Each book is also accompanied by a commentary. Here the editors discuss their decisions, translate the Masorah magna, and note problems with the Masorah magna and parva—and, where possible, resolve them.
