English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



5:1After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
5:2Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep [Gate] a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches.
5:3In these [porches] were lying a great multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water.
5:4For an angel from time to[ ]time descended into the pool and stirred up the water; therefore the first [one] having gone in after the stirring up of the water, became well of whatever disease he was suffering.
5:5Now there was a certain man there who had an ailment [for ]thirty-eight years.
5:6When Jesus saw this [man] lying there, and knew that he already had been in [that condition] a long time, He said to him, "Do you wish to become well?"
5:7The sick man answered Him, "Sir, I do not have a man, so that whenever the water is stirred up, he may put me into the pool; but while I am coming, another descends before me."
5:8Jesus said to him, "Arise, take up your bed and walk."
5:9And immediately the man became well, and took up his bed, and began to walk. And that day was the Sabbath.
5:10Therefore the Jews said to the man who was healed, "It is the Sabbath; it is not lawful for you to carry your bed."
5:11He answered them, "He that made me whole, He said to me, 'Take up your bed and walk.' "
5:12Then they asked him, "Who is the Man who said to you, 'Take up your bed and walk'?"
5:13But the one who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had turned aside, while a crowd was in that place.
5:14After these things Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, "See, you have become well. Sin no more, lest something worse may happen to you."
5:15The man went away and reported to the Jews that Jesus was the [One ]who had made him well.
5:16And on account of this the Jews began to persecute Jesus, and were seeking to kill Him, because He was doing these things on the Sabbath.
5:17But Jesus answered them, "My Father has been working until now, and I am working."
5:18Because of this the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because not only was He breaking the Sabbath, but also He called God His own Father, making Himself equal with God.
5:19Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father doing; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.
5:20For the Father loves the Son, and shows to Him all things which He Himself does; and greater works than these He will show Him, so that you may marvel.
5:21For as the Father raises up the dead and gives life, thus also the Son gives life to whom He wills.
5:22For the Father judges no one, but He has given all judgment to the Son,
5:23so that all may honor the Son even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.
5:24"Most assuredly I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
5:25Most assuredly I say to you, that an hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those having heard shall live.
5:26For just as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself,
5:27and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is [the] Son of Man.
5:28Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming in which all those in the tombs will hear His voice
5:29and shall come forth-those who have done good, to a resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to a resurrection of condemnation.
5:30I can of My own self do nothing. Even as I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.
5:31"If I testify of Myself, My testimony is not valid.
5:32There is another who testifies about Me, and I know that the testimony which He testifies concerning Me is true.
5:33You have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth.
5:34But I do not receive the testimony from man, but these things I say so that you may be saved.
5:35He was the burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light.
5:36But I have a testimony greater than John's; for the works which the Father gave to Me, that I should complete them, these very works which I do, testify of Me, that the Father has sent Me.
5:37And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified about Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form.
5:38But you do not have His word abiding in you, because [Him ]whom He sent, Him you do not believe.
5:39You search the Scriptures, because you think [that] in them you have eternal life; and these are they which testify about Me.
5:40But you are unwilling to come to Me, so that you may have life.
5:41I do not receive glory from men.
5:42But I have known you, that you do not have the love of God in yourselves.
5:43I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.
5:44How can you believe, who receive glory from one another, and do not seek the glory which is from the only God?
5:45Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you-Moses, in whom you have hoped.
5:46For if you believed Moses, you would have believed Me; for he wrote about Me.
5:47But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?"
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
