The Majority of the New Testament manuscripts bear witness to virtually the same text. It is the result of the “normal” copying process from the autographs down to the invention of print in the XVI century.

Five Stars Amazon Reviews:

Alan  – June 10, 2016 – This is a great book about the Majority Text, the writer does a good job explaining the texts and supporting evidences for His view.

Dameon Gibbs –  March 27, 2017 – This is a masterpiece of wealthy information for those wanting to know the truth behind the scriptures. As the scriptures remain relevant today as it did thousands of years ago. Yet as Giuseppe Guarino said many attempt to corrupt the message presented in the scriptures. Using truth and history Giuseppe makes the truth and history of the scriptures plain, while utterly dismantling false theories that many people have of the scriptures. I can truly recommend this book to any believer and non-believer.

This book will present to the English speaking Christians my manual on Biblical Greek. The method of study I propose here is very simple and practical, so that the student may be equipped with information and terminology that will let him benefit as quickly as possible of the original text of the New Testament. The attention will be focused on the first epistle of John. Its first chapter will be our reference throughout the book. The reason why I chose John’s writings to introduce Biblical Greek to the student is that they have two wonderful characteristics that make them the perfect place to start. 1. John used about one thousand words only to write his first epistle! 2. His language is deep and full of theological treasures. Since this same wonderful characteristics extend to his Gospel too, once we finish first John we will move there to complete our course. I plan to do this in three volumes. The critical edition of the original text that I will be using is the Majority Greek Text edited by Robinson – Pierpont (1995).

In this book I consider the evidence in support of a Semitic original for the New Testament. The book originates from my personal need to seriously evaluate this possibility. My conclusions are that so far there is no evidence of any other original for the New Testament but the Greek. I tried to use terminology and evidence as simple and accessible as possible in order for my work to be useful to as many people as possible.

Discoveries like the Dead Sea Scrolls made it clear that in order to better understand the New Testament, it is necessary to seriously consider the language and culture of those through whom it was written. The New Testament did not betray but embraced and gave the world the riches of the Jewish religion and language. Its authors interpreted from their original language thoughts, sayings, accounts or even written documents. So deep was their Jewish background that when they could not find an equivalent for some Hebrew words or expressions, they thought well to keep them in their Greek autographs. This use has influenced the language of the church down to our days. In fact, we end all our prayers with a Hebrew word: “Amen.” We shout to God: “Hallelujah.” We call Jesus the “Messiah”. The Jewish background of the New Testament is quite a fascinating topic to investigate.

Was the New Testament among the Dead Sea Scrolls? In cave 7 the fragments were all papyrus manuscripts written in Greek. Two have been identified with Old Testament passages. In 1972 Jose O’ Callaghan maintained that the fragments might be what survived of manuscripts that originally contained books of the New Testament. Such a revolutionary possibility stirred the world of scholars who are traditionally against the antiquity of the apostolic writings.

This book will provide you with some general information about the Bible. It will help you know more about some basic topics in a very simple, straight-forward way. It has been thought both for personal and group study. Each chapter will be auto-conclusive, so that it can be consulted without having to read the whole book.

This is book is divided in two parts. The first is the annotated text of Daniel. The second a commentary to the historical and prophetical parts of the books. The witness of the Dead Sea Scrolls to the authenticity of Daniel is discussed too.

There are so many reasons to study the Bible, but the main one is that we need to know the Word. To say it with Jerome, the Church Father of the fifth century: The ignorance of the Scriptures is the ignorance of Christ.  In the Bible we learn about Jesus. We understand who he is. We learn why he became a man, why we need him to be saved – even what it means to be saved. I collect in this book the Bible studies presented during the past few years on my website.

 

 

A quest into the text of the New Testament to see if evidence can support the idea of a Semitic original for the New Testament.

The following is actually my best selling title. Various formats are available.

The majority of the New Testament manuscripts bear witness to virtually the same text. Is this not evidence of its providential preservation? The sad truth is that the revisions intending to improve the Textus Receptus and the biblical traslations did the opposite, weakened the testimony to the authentic text of the Bible.

The following book is available in two variant covers

A commentary on the book of Daniel, both historical and prophetical.
