Item description for Greek New Testament: With English Introduction including Greek/English dictionary/flexible (Greek and English Edition) by B. Aland, K. Aland & J. Karavidopoulos...

While the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece is designed for scholarly research, the Greek New Testament, 4th Revised Edition is designed for translators and students.

Like NA27, this is the leading edition of the original text of the New Testament. It contains the same Greek text as NA27, differing only in some details of punctuation and paragraphing. The format of UBS4 is in several respects more user-friendly for students and translators than NA27. It has a more spacious appearance and a larger font. English sub-headings assist in navigating the text for those who may be less familiar with Greek. Old Testament quotations appear in easily recognizable bold font. Synoptic parallels are clearly listed under English headings.

The critical apparatus includes exegetically significant variants (fewer than NA27) but adds extensive manuscript evidence (more than NA27) for each variant, thereby offering in-depth instruction for students on how variants and the evidence for them work together.

An introduction in English is included and an optional Concise Greek-English Dictionary of the New Testament by Barclay Newman is available.

Yes grasshopper, you have arrived...  Jul 12, 2008
Ah yes grasshopper. You have arrived. This is the one that you want. Dictionary included, you can slack on your memorization just a little because this concise tool is just at your fingertips. The work is well done and finely polished.
Greek Review  May 27, 2008
The book came looking brand new. It seemed like it was never used. Great price and came quite quickly.
UBS4  Apr 29, 2008
This book is a nice size. Very compact, only an inch thick, very easy to carry around.

I just started learning Greek, I read some of the other reviews, one guy was complaining about the font. Well, I think the font is beautiful. But I'm not a scholar, so I don't know how it compares to the other editions. To me, since it's my first Greek bible, I like the font they chose, which is the SuperGreek, and SSuperGreek. Looks good to me.

It has all the breathing marks, punctuations, accent's, bold lettering for old testament quotes, maps, english headings, and alternative renderings of the text on the bottom of the pages. I think they should have Jesus words in red, that would've been tight.

I can see the typeset just fine. it's the same size as any other average bible, the type that is. You can easily distinguish between upsilon, and nu. Even though this book is 931 pages, you wouldn't think so by the size of it.

I have the burgandy hardcover edition. The front and back hard cover's are very thin, just as thin as the bonded leather covers of a regular bible, but not naturally bendable. With a regular bonded leather bible, if you bend the cover, you can easily smooth it back out, with the Greak New Testament hard cover, if you bend the cover, your gonna have a permanent fold. The pages are the same as bible pages, minus the gold outlining.

I love this little bible. Even though I'm just learning Greek, I would recommend you buy one, and practice reading it, and pronouncing the words if you're learning like me. And when you finish your Greek course study, you will already have it handy.

Jesus is God.
Reasonable text, terrible font  Apr 28, 2008
I say "reasonable text," not "excellent text," because while the text is about as good as can be expected when following the Aland school of textual criticism, other scholarly approaches (a label which automatically excludes "Majority Text" and "Textus Receptus" approaches) are possible and in some cases more useful. (See, for example, the article "Remarks of an Outsider about [several Greek lexica] and Their Textual Basis" in the book _Biblical Greek Language and Lexicography_, ed. Bernard A. Taylor et al.) It is the uncritical acceptance of this Aland school that has led to the gratuitous "grade inflation" noted between the 3rd and 4th editions of the UBS Greek NT. The more you gaze at your own navel, it seems, the better it looks, even if it hasn't changed a bit over the years.

So much for the text; now for the font. The first time I opened this 4th edition, I was struck by vertigo (not a normal sensation with me in any circumstance). The font is a disaster! It is hard to say why it happens, but just looking at the font makes me dizzy. It is a crime that this sacred text has been defaced by such an unsightly presentation. I still use my 3rd edition for reading. I have the 4th in case a particular note in the apparatus needs to be consulted, but the 3rd is the only readable one of the pair. The Nestle-Aland 27th edition is also easy on the eyes and has the same text, though with a different sort of critical apparatus. (The UBS edition aims to highlight variants significant for translation, while the N-A edition aims to cover a larger number of variants with a more complex apparatus.)

If you are a newcomer to New Testament Greek, avoid the UBS 4th edition for continuous reading. If you can, get a used copy of the 3rd edition, which has a beautiful font. Otherwise, get the Nestle-Aland 27th edition. And best wishes in your studies! It _is_ possible to learn to read the Greek New Testament well, so don't lose heart if the early going is rough.
Very Good  Mar 28, 2008
This is justy what I expected. It is a perfect greek new testament for my use. The only bad thing that is not major is that sometimes the commentary takes up almost 1/2 the page. It is nothing extremely bad, just a minor nuisance. Overall still a 5 star.
