Re: Best Bible Version for Scholars for Synoptic Problem?

I happily used the Disciple Literal New Testament for my John the Baptist Source Parallel Bible thread, and it's serviceable. But only because I supplemented it with insertions of contentious Greek words. I see now by re-studying the Introduction that the DLNT makes no extreme literalist claim of on...

Re: John the Baptist Sources Parallel Bible

Jn 1.43 (On) the next day He wanted to go forth to Galilee. And He finds Philip. And Jesus says [legei] (to) him, "Be following Me." 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city (of) Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip finds Nathanael and says (to) him, "We have found [heurekamen] (the One of) whom Moses w...

Re: John the Baptist Sources Parallel Bible

[The English "behold" always comes from the Greek "idou" or "ide"] Jn 1.28 These (things) took place [egeneto] in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. Jn 1.29 On the next day he sees [blepei] Jesus coming [erkhomenon] toward him. And he says, [legei] "Look [Ide]--the Lamb of God, the...

Re: Best Bible Version for Scholars for Synoptic Problem?

Yes, I have now used the DLNT for two major postings in my new John the Baptist Bible Sources thread. I'm not sure yet it has strict one-to-one correspondence between Greek words and English words, but it sure seems to. Of course that means that combination words can't be one-to-one. There's our "wi...

Re: John the Baptist Sources Parallel Bible

ellipses {} indicate DLNT rare use for word that doesn't belong (?) (DLNT employs brackets to do this) [Some quotations marks are deleted to be able to post. Some Greek words are shown transliterated just to show their similarity to English] Mt 3.4 Now [de] John himself was having his clothes {made}...

Re: John the Baptist Sources Parallel Bible

I think I forgot to mention that this is just the start of a project to include all verses related to John the Baptist. Yes, I will be presenting John being John, the "brood of vipers" quote as within the traditional bounds of Q, just Matthew 3:7 parallels Luke 3:7, but I have the pair marked as "Re...

John the Baptist Sources Parallel Bible

That John the Baptist was a historical figure is all the more proven by the multiple sources analyzable in the four gospels. Displaying these sources supports the Proto-Gospel Hypothesis solution to the Synoptic Problem. The best literal translation available was chosen, the Disciples Literal New Te...

Re: Best Bible Version for Scholars for Synoptic Problem?

Sorry about my confusion in the prior page (4) about not remembering what version used "ascended" at Mark 1.10a. It's the Disciples Literal New Testament that just arrived from Amazon. (As I had displayed right here in the same Page 4.) Together with the Interlinear I am picking up today I should be...

Re: Best Bible Version for Scholars for Synoptic Problem?

Bibles are popping up all over, no one can even keep track of them all. There's The Essential New Testament that I could only find out its author.

Re: Best Bible Version for Scholars for Synoptic Problem?

Here's the Berean Study Bible. It ignores the first "egeneto". '9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 As soon as Jesus came up out of the water, he saw the heavens breaking open and the Spirit descending on Him like a dove. 11 And a voice came...
