English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



24:1And on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they, and certain other women with them, came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.
24:2But they found the stone having been rolled away from the tomb.
24:3And going in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
24:4And it happened, as they were greatly perplexed about this, that behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.
24:5Then, as they became afraid and bowed their faces to the ground, they said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead?
24:6He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee,
24:7saying, 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.' "
24:8And they remembered His words.
24:9And returning from the tomb, they reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
24:10It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary [the mother] of James, and the rest with them, who told these things to the apostles.
24:11And their words seemed like nonsense before them, and they disbelieved them.
24:12But Peter rose up and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen strips lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened.
24:13Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem.
24:14And they were conversing with one another about all these things which had happened.
24:15So it was, as they were conversing and discussing, that Jesus Himself drew near and started to travel with them.
24:16But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not recognize Him.
24:17And He said to them, "What [are ]these words which you are exchanging with one another as you walk, and you have a gloomy look?"
24:18Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, "Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and do not know what has happened in it in these days?"
24:19And He said to them, "What things?"So they said to Him, "The things concerning Jesus the Nazarene, who proved to be a man [who was ]a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people,
24:20and how the chief priests and our rulers handed Him over to be condemned to death, and they crucified Him.
24:21But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel. Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened.
24:22Moreover certain women of our group astonished us, after they arrived early at the tomb.
24:23And not finding His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive.
24:24And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it thus just as also the women had said; but Him they did not see."
24:25Then He said to them, "O [you ]foolish, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!
24:26Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?"
24:27And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
24:28Then they drew near to the village where they were going, and He made as though He was going farther.
24:29But they constrained Him, saying, "Stay with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent."And He went in to stay with them.
24:30Now it came to pass, as He was reclining [to eat] with them, having taken bread, He blessed and broke it, and He gave [it] to them.
24:31Then their eyes were opened and they recognized Him; and He vanished from their sight.
24:32And they said to one another, "Was not our heart burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, and while He was interpreting the Scriptures to us?"
24:33So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and they found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together,
24:34saying, "The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!"
24:35And they described the things that had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread.
24:36Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, "Peace to you."
24:37But being alarmed and becoming fearful, they thought they saw a spirit.
24:38And He said to them, "Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts?
24:39Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have."
24:40When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.
24:41But as they still disbelieved for joy, and marveled, He said to them, "Do you have any food here?"
24:42So they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish and some honeycomb.
24:43And taking it, He ate [it ]in their presence.
24:44Then He said to them, "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me."
24:45And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.
24:46Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day,
24:47and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
24:48And you are witnesses of these things.
24:49And behold, I am sending the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high."
24:50And He led them out as far as Bethany, and lifting up His hands, He blessed them.
24:51And it happened, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and was carried up into heaven.
24:52And after they had worshipped Him, they returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
24:53and they were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.
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
