The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible, Imitation Leather
Hendrickson's The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible offers the entirety of the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament within a single cover. Catering to pastors, students, scholars, and those well-versed in both Greek and Hebrew, this volume serves as an invaluable resource. It presents a comprehensive original-language Bible in an appealing package, all at an accessible price point.
The Hebrew section features a beautifully typeset rendition of the Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia, meticulously edited by Aron Dotan. Noteworthy features include the clear distinction of Qere forms in the margin, alongside the corresponding unpointed Kethiv forms in the main text. The absence of a critical apparatus ensures smooth and unobstructed reading experience.
On the Greek side, the New Testament is presented in a recent typesetting based on B. F. Westcott and F. J. A. Hort's edition. This section comes with its own set of distinct features, including English labels for pericopes. In the Gospels, these labels are further supplemented by verse references to their synoptic parallels. Quotations and allusions to the Old Testament are boldly marked in the Greek text, with corresponding references provided at the page's bottom.
To facilitate a comprehensive understanding, a discreet apparatus appears at the page's base. It highlights variations in wording between the Westcott-Hort edition, the 27th edition of Nestle-Aland's Novum Testamentum Graece, and the Byzantine text edition prepared by Maurice Robinson and William Pierpont. This harmonious compilation of texts ensures a valuable resource for readers seeking in-depth engagement with the original languages of the Bible.
