English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



18:1After saying these things, Jesus went out with His disciples across the winter stream Kidron, where there[ was] a garden, into which He and His disciples entered.
18:2Now Judas, the [one] betraying Him, also knew the place, because Jesus often gathered there also with His disciples.
18:3Then Judas, having taken the detachment [of soldiers], and attendants from the chief priests and Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.
18:4Jesus therefore, knowing all things coming upon Him, went out and said to them, "Whom do you seek?"
18:5They answered Him, "Jesus the Nazarene."Jesus said to them, "I AM."And Judas, the [one] betraying Him, was standing with them.
18:6Therefore when He said to them, "I AM,"they stepped back and fell to the ground.
18:7Then He asked them again, "Whom do you seek?"And they said, "Jesus the Nazarene."
18:8Jesus answered, "I have told you that I AM! Therefore if you seek Me, allow these [men] to go,"
18:9so that the word might be fulfilled which He said, "[Those] whom You have given Me I have lost none."
18:10Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And the servant's name was Malchus.
18:11Then Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?"
18:12Then the detachment [of soldiers] and the captain and the attendants of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him.
18:13And they led Him away to Annas first, for he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas who was high priest that year.
18:14Now it was Caiaphas who advised the Jews that it was profitable for one man to perish for the people.
18:15And Simon Peter was following Jesus, as was the other disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and entered with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest.
18:16But Peter stood at the door outside. Then the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper, and brought Peter in.
18:17Then the servant girl who kept the door said to Peter, "You are not also one of this Man's disciples, [are you]?"He said, "I am not."
18:18And the servants and attendants who had made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold, and they were warming themselves. Now Peter was standing with them and warming himself.
18:19Then high priest asked Jesus about His disciples and His doctrine.
18:20Jesus answered him, "I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where the Jews always come together, and in secret I spoke nothing.
18:21Why do you question Me? Question those who have heard Me, what I spoke to them. Indeed they know what I said."
18:22And when He had said these things, one of the attendants who stood by slapped Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, "Is this how You answer the high priest?"
18:23Jesus answered him, "If I have spoken evil, testify of the evil; but if well, why do you strike Me?"
18:24Then Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.
18:25Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. Therefore they said to him, "You are not also [one] of His disciples, [are you]?"Then he denied it and said, "I am not!"
18:26One of the servants of the high priest, a relative of him whose ear Peter cut off, said, "Did I not see you in the garden with Him?"
18:27Peter then denied again; and immediately a rooster crowed.
18:28Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the Praetorium, and it was early morning. But they themselves did not enter into the Praetorium, lest they might be defiled, but so that they might eat the Passover.
18:29Then Pilate went out to them and said, "What accusation do you bring against this Man?"
18:30They answered and said to him, "If He were not an evildoer, we would not have delivered Him over to you."
18:31Then Pilate said to them, "You take Him and judge Him according to your law."Therefore the Jews said to him, "It is not lawful for us to kill anyone,"
18:32that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled which He said, signifying by what sort of death He was about to die.
18:33Then Pilate entered the Praetorium again, and called Jesus, and said to Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?"
18:34Jesus answered him, "For yourself do you say this, or did others tell you about Me?"
18:35Pilate answered, "Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered You to me. What have You done?"
18:36Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I might not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here."
18:37Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a king then?"Jesus answered, "You say [rightly] that I am a king. For this [reason] I have been born, and for this [reason] I have come into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice."
18:38Pilate said to Him, "What is truth?"And having said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, "I find no fault in Him.
18:39"But you have a custom that I should release someone to you at the Passover. Therefore do you wish [that] I should release the King of the Jews?"
18:40Then they all cried out again, saying, "Not this [Man], but Barabbas!"Now Barabbas was a bandit.
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
