Product Description

Bruce Metzger calls the Westcott-Hort text “The most noteworthy critical edition of the Greek Testament ever produced by British scholarship.”

In their monumental critical edition of The New Testament in the Original Greek, Cambridge professors B. F. Westcott and F. J. A. Hort established the Greek text that has become the essential basis for nearly all subsequent editions and English translations. Through their groundbreaking reconstruction of New Testament textual history and their rigorous reexamination of the manuscript evidence, Westcott and Hort inaugurated a new era of textual study that has set the stage for all subsequent work.

Beyond preserving the landmark text, this new edition offers students and scholars alike a handy and affordable Greek Testament for day-today use that includes English headings, synoptic parallels, and complete references to Old Testament quotations. This edition also includes a revision and expansion of Alexander Souter’s A Pocket Lexicon of the Greek New Testament.

Long a favorite among biblical scholars, Souter’s Pocket Lexicon offers concise yet clear English definitions and helpful grammatical information on every Greek word used in the New Testament. A Foreword by renowned New Testament textual scholar, Dr. Eldon J. Epp, sets the Westcott-Hort text in historical perspective for contemporary readers.
