English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



2:1And on the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there.
2:2Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding.
2:3And when the wine had given out, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine."
2:4Jesus said to her, "Woman, what have I to do with you? My hour has not yet come."
2:5His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He may say to you, do."
2:6Now there were six stone water jars standing there, according to the purification rites of the Jews, each holding two or three measures.
2:7Jesus said to them, "Fill the water jars with water."And they filled them up to the top.
2:8And He said to them, "Draw out now, and carry [some] to the head steward."And they carried [it].
2:9Now when the head steward tasted the water which had become wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the head steward called the bridegroom
2:10and said to him, "Every man first sets out the good wine, and when they have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!"
2:11This beginning of the signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.
2:12After this He went down to Capernaum, He, His mother, His brothers, and His disciples; and there they remained not many days.
2:13Now the Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2:14And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers sitting there.
2:15And having made a scourge out of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and He poured out the coins of the moneychangers, and He overturned the tables.
2:16And He said to those selling the doves, "Take these things [away] from here! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!"
2:17Then His disciples remembered that it was written, "The zeal for Your house will consume Me."
2:18Therefore the Jews answered and said to Him, "What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?"
2:19Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
2:20Then the Jews said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?"
2:21But He was speaking about the temple of His body.
2:22Therefore, when He was raised up from among the dead, His disciples remembered that He spoke this [thing,] and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.
2:23Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, at the feast, many believed on His name, beholding the signs which He was doing.
2:24But Jesus did not trust Himself to them, because He knew all [men],
2:25and had no need that anyone should testify concerning man, for He himself knew what was in man.

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
