The SBL Greek New Testament is another great Free book to add to your study library!
The SBL Greek New Testament differs from the standard text in more than 540 variation units. The existence of an alternative critically edited text will help to remind readers of the Greek New Testament that the text-critical task is not finished. Moreover, by reminding readers of the continuing need to pay attention to the variant readings preserved in the textual tradition, it may also serve to draw attention to a fuller understanding of the goal of New Testament textual criticism: both identifying the earliest text and also studying all the variant readings for the light they shed on how particular individuals and faith communities adopted, used, and sometimes altered the texts that they read, studied, and transmitted. You can download it here.
We sing it and say it but what does Hallelujah really mean? Here’s how I found out by using The Bible Study App on my iPad.
First I searched on the word Hallelujah using the ESV Translation with Strong’s (in some translations the word is Alleluia). Interestingly enough Hallelujah is only found in four places in the New Testament and they are all in Revelation 19.
Because I’m using a Bible with Strong’s tagging I can then tap the word ‘Hallelujah’ to see the Greek word behind the English translation.
I can then tap ‘look up ἀλληλουϊα’ to see the Greek word in my other resources such as Vine’s or Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary or my Greek New Testament (NA 27 seen here) and compare them in the split screen.
These powerful tools make research and Bible study remarkably easy and whether you’re using The Bible Study App on an iPad, Android device, desktop, or phone the functionality is all very similar.
