English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:2He was in the beginning with God.
1:3All things came to be through Him, and without Him nothing came to be which has come to be.
1:4In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
1:5And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not apprehend it.
1:6There was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John.
1:7This [man] came for a testimony, so that he might testify concerning the Light, so that all through him might believe.
1:8He was not that Light, but [was sent] so that he might testify concerning the Light.
1:9That was the true Light which lightens every man coming into the world.
1:10He was in the world, and the world came to be through Him, and the world did not know Him.
1:11He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
1:12But as many as received Him, He gave them the authority to become children of God, to those who believe in His name;
1:13who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
1:14And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
1:15John testified concerning Him and has cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me, has come to be before me, because He was before me.' "
1:16And out of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
1:17For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came to be through Jesus Christ.
1:18No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, He who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared [Him].
1:19And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem so that they might ask him, "Who are you?"
1:20He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, "I am not the Messiah."
1:21And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?"He said, "I am not.""Are you the Prophet?"And he answered, "No."
1:22Then they said to him, "Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?"
1:23He said: "I am 'The voice of one crying in the wilderness: "Make straight the way of the LORD,"' just as Isaiah the prophet said."
1:24Now those who had been sent were from the Pharisees.
1:25And they asked him, saying, "Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?"
1:26John answered them, saying, "I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know.
1:27He is the [One ]who comes after me, who has come to be before me, of whom I am not worthy that I should loose the strap of His sandal."
1:28These things happened in Bethany, beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
1:29The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
1:30This is the [One] about whom I said, 'After me comes a Man who ranks before me, because He was before me.'
1:31"I did not know Him; but that He should be made manifest to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water."
1:32And John testified, saying, "I have beheld the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him.
1:33I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'Upon whom you see the Spirit descending and abiding on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.'
1:34"And I have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God."
1:35Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples.
1:36And looking at Jesus as He [was] walking, he said, "Behold the Lamb of God!"
1:37The two disciples heard him speaking, and they followed Jesus.
1:38Then Jesus turned and observed them following, and said to them, "What are you seeking?"They said to Him, "Rabbi"(which is translated, Teacher), "where are You staying?"
1:39He said to them, "Come and see."They came and saw where He was staying, and they stayed with Him that day. It was about the tenth hour.
1:40One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.
1:41He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah"(which is translated, the Christ).
1:42And he led him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, "You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas"(which is translated, A Stone).
1:43On the next day He wanted to go to Galilee, and He found Philip and said to him, "Follow Me."
1:44Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
1:45Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found the [One] about whom Moses wrote in the Law, and the Prophets-Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
1:46And Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"Philip said to him, "Come and see."
1:47Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said about him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!"
1:48Nathanael said to Him, "From where do You know me?"Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, while you were under the fig tree, I saw you."
1:49Nathanael answered and said to Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!"
1:50Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I said to you, 'I saw you under the fig tree,' do you believe? You will see greater things than these."
1:51And He said to him, "Most assuredly I say to you, from now on you shall see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man."
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
