    Most Important Textual Variants in the New Testament


This page is taken from the first appendix for the second edition of the Analytical-Literal Translation.


Appendix #1

Important Textual Variants

This second edition of the Analytical-Literal Translation of the New Testament of the Holy Bible is based on the forthcoming second edition of the Byzantine Majority Text. The translator believes this Greek text most accurately reflects the original manuscripts. However, there are two other Greek texts which are often used for Bible translation. These are the Textus Receptus (which the King James Version and the New King James Version® are based on) and the Critical Text (which versions like the New American Standard Bible®, the New International Version®, and the New Living Translation® are based on).

For ease in comparing Bible translations, this appendix lists the most important textual variants between these three Greek texts.

The Textus Receptus and Critical Text variants are translated as they would appear in the ALT if the ALT was based on these texts. Alternative translations and other bracketed material seen in the ALT are omitted here unless the variant affects such material. However, words added for clarity are included and bracketed as they would be in the ALT. But some versions do not bracket added words. So these words might appear in another translation without any notation.

The following are the primary standards used to decide if a variant was of sufficient importance to be included in this appendix. A variant was included if:

1. The length is significant, such as one Greek text including an entire verse or a significant portion of a verse that another Greek text omits, such as Acts 8:36,37 and Acts 9:5,6.

2. It significantly affects the interpretation of the verse, such as the inclusion or omission of “to repentance” in Matthew 9:13.

3. It bears on a theological issue, such as the inclusion or omission of “the One being in heaven” in John 3:13.

4. It bears on the reliability of the NT, such as the name of a king being listed as Asa or Asaph in Matthew 1:7,8 (the OT has Asa).

5. The differences between texts are rather striking or apparent.

For Further Information

These variants are taken from the more complete lists of textual variants posted on the ALT section of Darkness to Light’s Web site (www.dtl.org/alt/).

These lists might seem rather extensive. But in reality, passages in which variants occur between these three Greek texts constitute a very small percentage of the entire text. So for vast majority of the New Testament, the reader can be confident there is little question as to the original text. And when there is a question, most of the time, the differences are very minor. But this appendix will show the relatively rare times when there are important differences.

For an extensive discussion on why the translator believes the Byzantine Majority Text is the most accurate of the three Greek texts compared here, see my book Differences Between Bible Versions. This book also looks in detail at the different translation principles used in Bible translation. It is available from the publisher AuthorHouse (www.AuthorHouse.com ~ 1-888-280-7715).
