English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



3:1Now there was a man of the Pharisees whose name [was] Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
3:2This [man] came to Him by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You have come from God [as] a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him."
3:3Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless someone is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
3:4Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born, being old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?"
3:5Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless someone is born of water and of Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
3:6That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
3:7Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
3:8"The wind blows where it wills, and you hear its sound, but you do not know from where it comes and where it goes. So is everyone who has been born of the Spirit."
3:9Nicodemus answered and said to Him, "How can these things be?"
3:10Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?
3:11Most assuredly I say to you, that which We know, We speak, and that which We have seen, We bear witness to, and you do not receive Our witness.
3:12If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
3:13And no one has gone up into heaven except He who came down out of heaven, the Son of Man, who is in heaven.
3:14And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
3:15that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
3:16For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
3:17For God did not send His Son into the world so that He might condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
3:18He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
3:19And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness more than the light, because their works were evil.
3:20For everyone that does evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works be exposed.
3:21But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be revealed, that they have been done in God."
3:22After these things Jesus, along with His disciples, came into the land of Judea, and there He was staying with them and He was baptizing.
3:23Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salem, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized.
3:24For John was not yet cast into prison.
3:25Then there came to be a dispute between John's disciples and a Jew about purification.
3:26And they came to John and said to him, "Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified-behold, this [Man] is baptizing, and all [men] are coming to Him!"
3:27John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.
3:28You yourselves bear witness that I said, 'I am not the Christ,' but, 'I have been sent before Him.'
3:29"He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the voice of the bridegroom. Therefore my joy has been fulfilled.
3:30He must increase, but I must decrease.
3:31He who comes from above is above all; he who is from the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.
3:32And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony.
3:33He who receives His testimony has certified that God is true.
3:34For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.
3:35The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.
3:36He who believes in the Son has eternal life; and he who does not believe the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."
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
