The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition is a new, critically edited and up-to-date edition of the Greek New Testament, edited by yours truly. Jointly published by the Society of Biblical Literature and Logos Bible Software, it’s available both as a free download (with a very liberal end-user license agreement) and in printed form. For more information, visit the SBLGNT web page, where one can read the Introduction and the Preface (camouflaged as the “About” page). As I have time, I hope to post here information about how the text was established and some details and features of the edition, including the accompanying apparatus.

–Here is a link (Holmes 2006 SBL Paper) to a paper I read for one of the sessions of the New Testament Textual Criticism Section at the 2006 SBL Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. This Web version is an edited and slightly shortened (but not updated) version of the 2006 presentation, published here for the first time. It offers an overview of a key issue in New Testament textual criticism: the synergistic relationship between text-critical theory and method, on the one hand, and one’s view of the history of the transmission of the text, on the other. My own views are deeply influenced by those of Zuntz, who receives significant attention in this paper. If nothing else, page quickly through it and take a look at the three illustrations of different views of the textual history of the New Testament (they are on pages 9, 10, and 14).
