English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



22:1Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew near, which is called Passover.
22:2And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they might kill Him, for they feared the people.
22:3Then Satan entered into Judas, surnamed Iscariot, who was numbered among the twelve.
22:4And he went off and spoke with the chief priests and captains [about] how he might betray Him to them.
22:5And they were glad, and agreed to give him money.
22:6And he promised, and was seeking an opportunity to betray Him to them in the absence of the crowd.
22:7Then came the Day of Unleavened Bread, when the Pascal Lamb must be killed.
22:8And He sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and prepare the Passover for us, so that we may eat [it]."
22:9So they said to Him, "Where do You desire [that ]we shall prepare [it]?"
22:10And He said to them, "Behold, when you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he goes in.
22:11Then you shall say to the master of the house, 'The Teacher says to you, "Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?"'
22:12And that [man] will show you a large, furnished upper room; there prepare [it]."
22:13So they went and found it just as He had said to them, and they prepared the Passover.
22:14When the hour had come, He reclined [to eat], and the twelve apostles with Him.
22:15Then He said to them, "I have fervently desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;
22:16for I say to you, that no longer will I eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God."
22:17Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, "Take this and divide it among yourselves;
22:18for I say to you, that I will by no means drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."
22:19And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
22:20Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.
22:21Nevertheless behold, the hand of him that betrays Me is with Me on the table.
22:22And indeed the Son of Man goes according to what is determined, but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!"
22:23Then they began to discuss with one another, which of them might be the [one] who was about to do this.
22:24And there became also a dispute among them, [as to] which of them seemed to be greater.
22:25But He said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called 'benefactors.'
22:26But you [shall ]not [be] thus; but let the greatest among you, let him be as the youngest, and he who leads as he who serves.
22:27For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves.
22:28Now you are those who have remained with Me in My trials.
22:29And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me,
22:30so that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
22:31And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Behold, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.
22:32But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
22:33But he said to Him, "Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death."
22:34Then He said, "I say to you, Peter, the rooster will by no means crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me."
22:35And He said to them, "When I sent you without a money bag, and a knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?"And they said, "Nothing."
22:36Then He said to them, "But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise also a knapsack; and he who has no sword shall sell his garment and buy one.
22:37For I say to you that this which has been written must still be accomplished in Me-the [saying,] 'And He was numbered with the transgressors.' For the things concerning Me have a fulfillment."
22:38So they said, "Lord, look, here are two swords."And He said to them, "It is enough."
22:39And going out, He went to the Mount of Olives, according to His custom, and His disciples also followed Him.
22:40And having come to the place, He said to them, "Pray that you may not enter into temptation."
22:41And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed,
22:42saying, "Father, if You will, remove this cup from Me-nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."
22:43Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.
22:44And being in agony, He prayed more fervently. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down onto the ground.
22:45And rising up from prayer, coming to the disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow.
22:46Then He said to them, "Why do you sleep? Rise up and pray, lest you enter into temptation."
22:47And while He was still speaking, behold, a crowd; and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, was going before them and drew near to Jesus to kiss Him.
22:48But Jesus said to him, "Judas, do you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?"
22:49And those around Him, seeing what was about to happen, they said to Him, "Lord, shall we strike with the sword?"
22:50And a certain one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear.
22:51But Jesus answered and said, "Stop right there."And touching his ear, He healed him.
22:52Then Jesus said to the chief priests, captains of the temple, and the elders who had come to Him, "Have you come out, as against a bandit, with swords and clubs?
22:53When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness."
22:54And having arrested Him, they led Him and brought Him into the house of the high priest. And Peter was following from a distance.
22:55Now when they had lit a fire in the midst of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat in their midst.
22:56And a certain servant girl, seeing him sitting at the fire and gazing at him, said, "This [man] was also with Him."
22:57But he denied Him, saying, "Woman, I do not know Him."
22:58And after a little [while] another [person ]saw him and said, "You also are [one ]of them."But Peter said, "Man, I am not!"
22:59Then after about one hour had passed, another was firmly insisting, saying, "Surely this fellow also was with Him, for he is a Galilean."
22:60But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are saying!"And immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.
22:61And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, "Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times."
22:62And going outside, Peter wept bitterly.
22:63Now the men who were holding Jesus were mocking Him and beating [Him].
22:64And having blindfolded Him, they were striking His face and asking Him, saying, "Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?"
22:65And many other things they blasphemously spoke against Him.
22:66And when it became day, the council of the elders of the people, the chief priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council, saying,
22:67"If You are the Messiah, tell us."But He said to them, "If I tell you, you will by no means believe.
22:68But if I also question you, you will by no means answer Me or release [Me].
22:69Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God."
22:70Then they all said, "Are You then the Son of God?"So He said to them, "You [rightly] say that I am."
22:71And they said, "What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth!"
English Majority Text Version

English Majority Text Version


Welcome to the third edition of The English Majority Text Version (EMTV) of the Holy Bible. This latest edition has Greek explanatory notes throughout the Bible, to aid the reader in understanding the meanings in some select places of the original Koine Greek. Also, the third edition finds itself closer to the Robinson/Pierpoint printed edition of the Byzantine majority text, rather than the Hodges/Farstad text, which the EMTV was translated from. You will notice these differences in John 7:53-8:11, as well as the entire book of Revelation.

The English Majority Text Version draws from the work of both Dr.’s Hodges and Farstad, and their text, “The Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text,” as well as from Dr. Wilbur Pickering, ThM. PhD., and the EMTV has incorporated his hard work in the field of producing evidence of just what does constitute a majority reading, and, as a result of his work, and the work of others, John 7:53-8:11, and the book of Revelation reflect these variant readings. This is one of the great things about having a Bible that is translated from the majority of the trustworthy Byzantine manuscripts that are in existence—the much greater probability of accuracy.

On the other side of the fence, most modern Bibles are translated from a few scant manuscripts (literally), and more often than not they do not even agree with each other. Not so with a Bible that is translated out of the majority! The experts in linguistics who have put these readings together, and diligently compared the manuscripts, had hundreds and hundreds of manuscripts to compare. It is my prayer that this work will bring honor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and to our God and Father; because all of this, all that we do, we do to know Him better, and to better understand His word, which He has given to mankind. “Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. (Prove 30:5,6). Peace of Christ to you all. In His service, Paul W Esposito Stauros Ministries
