Hendrickson’s The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible combines under one cover the complete text of the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament. Ideal for pastors, students, scholars, and anyone else who has studied both Greek and Hebrew, this is an excellent volume for those who want a complete original-language Bible in an attractive package and at an affordable price.
The Hebrew text is a beautifully typeset version of the Biblia Hebraica Leningradensis, edited by Aron Dotan. Features: - Qere forms are clearly set off in the margin (with corresponding unpointed Kethiv forms in the main text). - The text is unencumbered by a critical apparatus, allowing for ease of reading.
The Greek New Testament is a recent typesetting of the edition produced by B. F. Westcott and F. J. A. Hort.
- Pericopes are labeled in English, and in the Gospels these labels are accompanied, where appropriate, by the verse references of their synoptic parallels. - Quotations and allusions to the Old Testament are indicated in the Greek text in bold, with references at the bottom of the page. - A straightforward, unobtrusive apparatus is found at the bottom of the page that presents the differences in wording between the Westcott-Hort edition and the 27th edition of Nestle-Aland’s Novum Testamentum Graece, as well as the Byzantine text edition prepared by Maurice Robinson and William Pierpont.
Aron Dotan (b. 1928) is an emeritus professor of Hebrew and Semitic languages at Tel Aviv University and a specialist in Masoretic studies. In 2001 he published Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia, an updated edition of a Hebrew Bible that he originally produced in 1973 and that was subsequently adopted for use by the Israeli Army. Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia is based on Dotan’s painstaking analysis of the Leningrad Codex, to which manuscript it adheres even more closely than does Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia, the standard scholarly edition of the Hebrew Bible.
Brooke Foss Westcott (1825–1901) and Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828–1892) were both Anglican clergymen who taught at Cambridge University, Wesctott as Regius Professor and Hort as Hulsean Professor and subsequently Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity. The original publication of their famous critical edition of the Greek New Testament in 1881 constituted a landmark event in the history of New Testament textual criticism. The Westcott-Hort edition laid the groundwork for today’s scholarly editions of the New Testament, whose texts—although more up to date, particularly because of recent manuscript discoveries—are in most cases identical to the one produced by Westcott and Hort.
