English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



19:1So then Pilate took Jesus and flogged [Him].
19:2And the soldiers twisted a crown out of thorns and put it on His head, and they put a purple robe around Him.
19:3And they kept saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"And they were striking Him with their hands.
19:4Pilate then went out again, and said to them, "Behold, I am bringing Him out to you, so that you may know that I find no fault in Him."
19:5Then Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, "Behold, the Man!"
19:6Therefore, when the chief priests and the attendants saw Him, they cried out, saying, "Crucify, crucify Him!"Pilate said to them, "You take Him and crucify [Him], for I find no fault in Him."
19:7The Jews answered him, "We have a law, and according to our law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of God."
19:8Therefore, when Pilate heard this saying, he was [even] more afraid,
19:9and he entered into the Praetorium again, and said to Jesus, "Where are You from?"But Jesus gave him no answer.
19:10Then Pilate said to Him, "Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have authority to crucify You, and I have authority to release You?"
19:11Jesus answered, "You would have no authority at all against Me unless it had been given to you from above. Therefore the one who betrayed Me to you has a greater sin."
19:12From this [point ]Pilate was seeking to release Him, but the Jews kept crying out, saying, "If you release this [Man], you are no friend of Caesar's. Whoever makes himself a king speaks against Caesar."
19:13Therefore Pilate, having heard this saying, led Jesus outside and sat down on the judgment seat in a place that is called [The] Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
19:14Now it was the Preparation [Day] of the Passover, and about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, "Behold your King!"
19:15But they cried out, "Away [with Him], away [with Him]! Crucify Him!"Pilate said to them, "Shall I crucify your King?"The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar!"
19:16Then he delivered Him to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus and led [Him ]away.
19:17And bearing His cross, He went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha,
19:18where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on each side, and Jesus in the middle.
19:19Now Pilate wrote a title and he put [it] on the cross. And it was written: JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
19:20Then many of the Jews read this title, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Greek, and in Latin.
19:21Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, "Do not write, 'The King of the Jews,' but, 'He said, "I am the King of the Jews."' "
19:22Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."
19:23Then the soldiers, when they crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was seamless, woven from the top in one piece.
19:24Therefore they said to one another, "Let us not tear it, but let us cast lots for it, whose it will be,"so that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says: "They divided My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots."Therefore the soldiers did these things.
19:25Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the [wife] of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
19:26Therefore Jesus, seeing His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold your son!"
19:27Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your mother!"And from that hour that disciple took her into his own [care].
19:28After this, Jesus, seeing that all things already had been fulfilled, so that the Scripture might be fulfilled, He said, "I thirst!"
19:29Now a vessel was set full of sour wine; and they, having filled a sponge with sour wine, put it around a hyssop, they held it to His mouth.
19:30Therefore when Jesus received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!"And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
19:31Therefore the Jews, since it was the Preparation [Day], that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and they might be taken away.
19:32Then the soldiers came and they broke the legs of the first [man,] and of the other who was crucified with Him.
19:33But having come to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs.
19:34But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
19:35And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he tells the truth, so that you may believe.
19:36For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, "Not a bone of His shall be broken."
19:37And again another Scripture says, "They shall look at [Him] whom they pierced."
19:38After these things[,] Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took away the body of Jesus.
19:39And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.
19:40Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen strips with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.
19:41Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been buried.
19:42So there they laid Jesus, because of the Jews' Preparation Day, because the tomb was near.
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
