Free Online Audio Greek New Testament

 

 

Organized and hosted by David Field. Read by Andy Martin.

 

1)       Text.   We have to use a text which is not copyright-restricted and so have used the 1904 BFBS edition.  This is about as close as we can get to the sort of eclectic text which the UBS GNT (1st edn 1966, through to 4th edn 2001) gives us without breaking copyright.

 

The text itself may be seen at:

The 1904 edition carries this self-description in the “Advertisement” on page v: 

 

"The text of this Greek Testament was in the main first published by the Bible Society of Württemberg at Stuttgart in 1898. It was prepared for that Society by Professor Eberhard Nestle, D.D., of Maulbronn, and he revised the several editions which followed the first one. By kind permission of the Württemberg Society the British and Foreign Bible Society was permitted to adopt its latest text (the 4th) and to publish it in England under Dr Nestle's care in 1904.

 

The text is the resultant of a collation of three of the principal recensions of the Greek Testament which appeared in the latter half of the 19th century, viz. those of Tischendorf, editio octava 1869-72 (as reproduced in the 4th edition by Oskar von Gebhardt, 1898); of Westcott and Hort, 1881 (impression of 1895); and of Bernhard Weiss, 1894-1900 (second edition 1902)."

 

2)      Pronunciation.  There are deep and scholarly debates about the pronunciation of Koine Greek.  Our concern has been for clarity and consistency rather than to make a contribution to these debates.

 

3)      This has been produced using a cheap microphone, Audacity with free MP3 export thingy, and Windows Media Player 10 for listening.  Windows Media Player 10 makes it easy to put these files on an MP3 player or to burn them as either MP3 or audio CDs.

 

4)      Please EMAIL ME if you find a fault.

 

5)      Please pray for the completion of the project.
