English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



20:1On the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.
20:2Therefore she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him."
20:3Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb.
20:4And the two together were running, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first.
20:5And stooping to look in, he saw the linen strips lying there; however he did not go in.
20:6Then Simon Peter came, following him, and entered into the tomb; and he saw the linen strips lying there,
20:7and the facecloth which had been on His head, not lying with the linen strips, but apart from [them,] having been rolled up in one place.
20:8Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed.
20:9For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.
20:10Then the disciples went away again to their own homes.
20:11But Mary stood outside facing the tomb weeping. Therefore as she was weeping, she stooped down [and] [looked] into the tomb.
20:12And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
20:13Then they said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?"She said to them, "Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they put Him."
20:14And having said these things, she turned back and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus.
20:15Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom do you seek?"She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, "Sir, if You carried Him away, tell me where You put Him, and I will take Him away."
20:16Jesus said to her, "Mary!"She turned and said to Him, "Rabboni!"(which means, Teacher).
20:17Jesus said to her, "Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brothers and say to them, 'I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.' "
20:18Mary Magdalene went reporting to the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and [that] He had spoken these things to her.
20:19Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace to you."
20:20And having said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
20:21Therefore Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! Just as the Father has sent Me, I also send you."
20:22And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
20:23If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain [the sins] of any, they have been retained."
20:24But Thomas, one of the twelve, the [one ]called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came.
20:25The other disciples therefore said to him, "We have seen the Lord."So he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will by no means believe."
20:26And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been closed, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace to you!"
20:27Then He said to Thomas, "Bring your finger here, and see My hands; and bring your hand here, and put [it] into My side. Be not unbelieving, but believing."
20:28And Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"
20:29Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
20:30And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book;
20:31but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that [by ]believing you may have life in His name.
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
