English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



7:1And after these things Jesus was walking in Galilee; for He did not wish to walk in Judea, because the Jews were seeking to kill Him.
7:2Now the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was near.
7:3His brothers therefore said to Him, "Depart from here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples also may see the works that You do.
7:4For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known publicly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world."
7:5For not even His brothers believed in Him.
7:6Then Jesus said to them, "My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready.
7:7The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify about it, that its works are evil.
7:8You go up to this feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, because My time has not yet been fulfilled."
7:9When He had said these things to them, He remained in Galilee.
7:10But when His brothers had gone up, then also He Himself went up to the feast, not openly, but as [it were] in secret.
7:11Then the Jews were seeking Him at the feast, and said, "Where is He?"
7:12And there was much murmuring among the crowds concerning Him. Some on the one hand were saying, "He is a good [Man]"; [while ]others were saying, "No, on the contrary, He deceives the people."
7:13However, no one spoke openly of Him for fear of the Jews.
7:14But now about the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and began to teach.
7:15And the Jews were marveling, saying, "How is this Man learned, since He has not been educated?"
7:16Therefore Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me.
7:17If anyone desires to do His will, he will know about the doctrine, whether it is from God, or whether I am speaking on My own authority.
7:18He who speaks from himself is seeking his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him.
7:19Has not Moses given you the law, yet none of you keeps the law? Why are you seeking to kill Me?"
7:20The crowd answered and said, "You have a demon. Who is seeking to kill You?"
7:21Jesus answered and said to them, "I did one work, and [you] all marvel.
7:22Because of this Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and you circumcise a man on [the] Sabbath.
7:23If a man receives circumcision on [the] Sabbath, so that the law of Moses should not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made a man completely well on [the] Sabbath?
7:24Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."
7:25Therefore some of people of Jerusalem were saying, "Is this not He whom they are seeking to kill?
7:26And look! He is speaking publicly, and they say nothing to Him. Can it be that the rulers know indeed that this is truly the Christ?
7:27However, we know where this Man is from; but when the Christ comes, no one knows where He is from."
7:28Therefore Jesus cried out, as He was teaching in the temple, saying, "You both know Me, and you know where I am from; and I have not come on my own, but He who sent Me is true, whom you do not know.
7:29I know Him, for I am from Him, and He sent Me."
7:30Therefore they were seeking to arrest Him; but no one laid a hand on Him, because His hour had not yet come.
7:31But many of the crowd believed in Him, and were saying, "When the Christ comes, will He do more signs than these which this [Man] did?"
7:32The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things about Him, and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent attendants so that they might arrest Him.
7:33Then Jesus said, "Yet a little while am I with you, and [then] I go to Him who sent Me.
7:34You will seek Me and you will not find [Me], and where I am you cannot come."
7:35Therefore the Jews said among themselves, "Where does this [man] intend to go that we will not find Him? Does He intend to go into the Dispersion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks?
7:36What is this thing which He said, 'You will seek Me and you will not find [Me], and where I am you cannot come'?"
7:37Now on the last day, the great [day] of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.
7:38He that believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his belly will flow rivers of living water."
7:39(But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him were about to receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet [given], because Jesus was not yet glorified.)
7:40Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, "Truly this is the Prophet."
7:41Others said, "This is the Christ."Others said, "But the Christ is not coming out of Galilee, [is He]?
7:42Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the village of Bethlehem, where David was?"
7:43Therefore a division occurred among the crowd because of Him.
7:44Now some of them wished to arrest Him, but no one laid a hand on Him.
7:45Then the attendants came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, "Why did you not bring Him?"
7:46The attendants answered them, "No man ever spoke like this Man!"
7:47Then the Pharisees answered them, "Have you also been deceived?
7:48Have any of the rulers or the Pharisees believed in Him?
7:49But this crowd which does not know the law is accursed."
7:50Nicodemus (he who came to Him by night, being one of them) said to them,
7:51Does our law judge a man before it hears from him first, and knows what he is doing?"
7:52They answered and said to him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search and see, because no prophet has arisen out of Galilee."
7:53And everyone went to his own house.
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
