English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



10:1"Most assuredly I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold through the door, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.
10:2But he who enters through the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
10:3To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and he leads them out.
10:4And whenever he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice.
10:5But they will by no means follow a stranger, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers."
10:6This illustration Jesus spoke to them, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.
10:7Then Jesus said to them again, "Most assuredly I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
10:8All who came [before Me] are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
10:9I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and go out, and will find pasture.
10:10The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
10:11I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
10:12But a hired hand, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
10:13But the hired hand flees because he is a hired hand, and is not concerned about the sheep.
10:14I am the good shepherd; and I know My [own], and I am known by My own.
10:15Just as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
10:16And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; those also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.
10:17Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it [up ]again.
10:18No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it [up ]again. This command I have received from My Father."
10:19Therefore there was a division again among the Jews because of these words.
10:20And many of them said, "He has a demon and is raving mad. Why do you listen to Him?"
10:21Others said, "These are not the words of [one] being demon-possessed. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?"
10:22Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter.
10:23And Jesus was walking in the temple, in Solomon's Porch.
10:24Then the Jews encircled Him and said to Him, "How long will You hold us in suspense? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly."
10:25Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father's name, these things testify about Me.
10:26But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, just as I said to you.
10:27My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
10:28And I give to them eternal life, and they shall never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
10:29My Father, who has given [them] to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch [them] out of My Father's hand.
10:30I and the Father are one."
10:31Therefore the Jews took up stones again to stone Him.
10:32Jesus answered them, "Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?"
10:33The Jews answered Him, saying, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God."
10:34Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your law, 'I said, "You are gods"'?
10:35If He called those gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),
10:36do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?
10:37If I am not doing the works of My Father, do not believe Me;
10:38but if I am doing [them], even if you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him."
10:39Therefore they were seeking again to seize Him, but He escaped from their hand.
10:40And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was first baptizing, and He stayed there.
10:41And many came to Him and said, "John indeed performed no sign, but everything which John said about this [Man] was true."
10:42And many believed in Him there.

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
