Enhance your purchase
This edition publishes the Greek Original without translation. You may be interested also in the Bilingual Edition (see elpenor.org).
Coming from Byzantium and being used until our days in Greek speaking Orthodox Churches, this version is the most authoritative form of the original New Testament text.
Elpenor's edition is offered at cost price, it follows the 1904/12 text of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople with just a correction of typos.
Illuminated with images of Byzantine manuscripts, photos of Churches of Athos Holy Mount and all of Greece, Orthodox Icons and various Orthodox style drawings, this edition features also a large typeface for easier reading. Even if you have the original Greek New Testament already, you may want to get also this edition for the pleasure of reading it in large fonts, its convenient formatting and the inspiring illumination.

La única pega que le doy es la portada que no le hace justicia para mí.
Recomiendo este ejemplar con el Byzantine Textform de Robinson-Pierpoint 2018.
The text contains no foot notes, no marginal references and no apparatus. Just the naked text. And this text has some surprising characteristics compared to the Robinson-Pierpont (RP) and Zane-Hodges Majority text (MT) version of the Byzantine text:
* Luke 17:36 is included despite being absent in MT and RP
* Acts 8:37 is included despite being absent in MT and RP
* Acts 15:34 is included despite being absent in MT and RP
* The comma Johanneum (1 John 5:7, 8) is included despite being absent in MT and RP.
These instances are odd inasmuch as these verses are absent from almost all Greek MSS and have been added very late from Latin.
Thus, this Patriarchal Text appears to be mid-way between the MT and Textus Receptus. The book is a delightful reference for what the late Byzantium church used for its liturgy.
