The Greek original text, according to the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, and the King James English translation are published here side by side in facing pages, co-operating for an... More > edition that celebrates the original text of the New Testament, helping those who try to study, learn and enjoy this so important ancient and modern language.

I am always impressed by the love for Greek shared by so many people especially in the US and Europe. I hope this edition contributes something of real value to their joyous efforts.
