Description


The gospel of John is the fourth narrative about the person and the life of Jesus, if we follow the order we find in the Bible. It is a shrink of theological treasures. Above all, it reveals the Deity of our Lord and Savior which has no parallel in the three Synoptic gospels. Yet, John's Greek is quite simple and very useful for those who begin to approach the Greek language of the Bible. At the same time, it is always surprising to study it even after years of acquaintance with the Greek text. I always marvel at the deep meanings I discover, the perfect Jewish setting, at the details which leave behind any possible doubt about the inspiration of this portion of Scripture. To create the parallel text you find here I used, for the English the American King James Version, which modernizes the language of the prestigious King James Version. For the original Greek, the 1860 edition of the Textus Receptus, by F. H. A. Scrivener, which has the 1550 A.D. Stephanus text which was adopted by the translators of the KJV. Scrivener added textual notes which discuss the most common variant readings found in the critical editions of the time. One would think those variants are out of date. Well, truth is that the variant readings critics have been arguing about are basically the same. For example John 1:18, or the so called Pericope de Adultera, John 7:53-8:11. Another fact that remains is that the Textus Receptus is still the most widely spread form of the Majority Text - identical with it for all practical purposes.
