English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



15:1"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
15:2Every branch in Me which does not bear fruit He takes away; and every [branch] which bears fruit He prunes, so that it may bear more fruit.
15:3You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
15:4Abide in Me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit on its own, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.
15:5I am the vine, you [are] the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; because apart from Me you can do nothing.
15:6If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out like a branch and dries up; and they gather them and throw [them] into the fire, and they are burned.
15:7If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what ever you may desire, and it shall be done for you.
15:8By this My Father is glorified, that you may bear much fruit; and you will become My disciples.
15:9"Just as the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
15:10If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father's commandments and I abide in His love.
15:11These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may abide in you, and that your joy may be full.
15:12This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
15:13Greater love has no one than this, that one should lay down his life on behalf of his friends.
15:14You are My friends if you do what I command you.
15:15No longer do I call you servants, because a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, because all things which I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
15:16You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you may ask the Father in My name He may give to you.
15:17These things I command you, that you may love one another.
15:18"If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
15:19If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.
15:20Remember the word which I said to you, 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.
15:21But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
15:22If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse concerning their sin.
15:23He who hates Me hates My Father also.
15:24If I had not done the works among them which no one else has done, they would have no sin; but now they have both seen and they have hated both Me and My Father.
15:25But [this was] so that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, 'They hated Me without cause.'
15:26"But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me.
15:27And you also will testify, because you have been with Me from the beginning.
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
