English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



15:1Immediately, in the morning, the chief priests held a consultation, along with the elders and scribes and the whole Sanhedrin; and having bound Jesus, they led [Him] away, and delivered [Him] to Pilate.
15:2Then Pilate asked Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?"And He answered and said to him, "You are saying [what is so]."
15:3And the chief priests were accusing Him of many things.
15:4Then Pilate questioned Him again, saying, "Do You answer nothing? See how many things they testify against You!"
15:5But Jesus no longer answered anything, so that Pilate marveled.
15:6Now at the feast he would release one prisoner to them, whomever they would request.
15:7And there was one called Barabbas, having been bound with his fellow rebels, who had committed murder in the rebellion.
15:8Then the crowd cried out and began to request [that] just as always he would do [this] for them.
15:9But Pilate answered them, saying, "Do you desire that I release to you the King of the Jews?"
15:10For he knew that because of envy the chief priests had delivered Him up.
15:11But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
15:12But Pilate answered and said to them again, "What then do you desire [that] I should do [with Him ]whom you call King of the Jews?"
15:13And again they cried, "Crucify Him!"
15:14But Pilate said to them, "Why, what evil did He do?"But they cried out all the more, "Crucify Him!"
15:15So Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered up Jesus, after he had Him flogged, so that He might be crucified.
15:16Then the soldiers led Him away into the courtyard, which is the Praetorium, and assembled the whole garrison.
15:17And they clothed Him with purple; and they twisted a crown of thorns, and they put it around His head,
15:18and they began to salute Him, "Hail, King of the Jews!"
15:19And they were striking His head with a reed and were spitting on Him; and bowing the knee, they [mockingly ]worshipped Him.
15:20And when they had mocked Him, they stripped Him of the purple, and dressed Him in His own clothing. And led Him out so that they might crucify Him.
15:21And they pressed into service a certain [man] [that was] passing by [named] Simon, a Cyrenian, the father of Alexander and Rufus, as he was coming from the country, that he might carry His cross.
15:22And they brought Him to the place [called ]Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull.
15:23And they gave Him wine mingled with myrrh to drink, but He did not take it.
15:24And having crucified Him, they divided His clothes by casting lots over them,[ to determine] who would take what.
15:25Now it was the third hour, and they crucified Him.
15:26And there was the inscription of His charge having been inscribed: THE KING OF THE JEWS.
15:27And together with Him they crucified two bandits, one on His right side and the one on His left.
15:28So the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "And He was numbered with the transgressors."
15:29And those passing by were blaspheming Him, shaking their heads and saying, "Aha! You who destroy the temple and build it in three days,
15:30save Yourself, and come down from the cross!"
15:31Likewise the chief priests also, mocking [Him] to each other with the scribes said, "He saved others; Himself He is not able to save.
15:32Let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross, so that we may see and believe Him."Even those who were crucified with Him were reviling Him.
15:33Now when the sixth hour had come, darkness came upon the whole land until the ninth hour.
15:34And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eloi, Eloi, lima sabachthani?"which is translated, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"
15:35Some of those standing by when they heard, said, "Look, He is calling Elijah."
15:36And one, running and having filled a sponge [with] vinegar, and having put it around a reed, was giving a drink to Him, saying, "Leave Him alone; let us see if Elijah is coming to take Him down."
15:37And Jesus, uttering a loud cry, expired.
15:38Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
15:39Now when the centurion who stood across from Him saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last, he said, "Truly this Man was the Son of God!"
15:40There were also women looking on from a distance, among whom were both Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the Less and of Joses, and Salome,
15:41who also would follow Him and would minister to Him when He was in Galilee; and many other women who had come up together with Him to Jerusalem.
15:42And now evening having come, since it was Preparation Day, which is the day before the Sabbath,
15:43Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent council member, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, coming and taking courage, he went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
15:44And Pilate wondered if He was already dead; and having summoned the centurion, he questioned him if He had been dead long.
15:45And when he found out from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph.
15:46And having bought linen cloth, and having taken Him down, he wrapped Him in the linen cloth and set Him down in a tomb which had been cut out of a rock, and rolled a stone upon the door of the tomb.
15:47And Mary Magdalene and Mary [the mother] of Joses were observing where He was placed.

English Majority Text Version


Welcome to the third edition of The English Majority Text Version (EMTV) of the Holy Bible. This latest edition has Greek explanatory notes throughout the Bible, to aid the reader in understanding the meanings in some select places of the original Koine Greek. Also, the third edition finds itself closer to the Robinson/Pierpoint printed edition of the Byzantine majority text, rather than the Hodges/Farstad text, which the EMTV was translated from. You will notice these differences in John 7:53-8:11, as well as the entire book of Revelation.

The English Majority Text Version draws from the work of both Dr.’s Hodges and Farstad, and their text, “The Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text,” as well as from Dr. Wilbur Pickering, ThM. PhD., and the EMTV has incorporated his hard work in the field of producing evidence of just what does constitute a majority reading, and, as a result of his work, and the work of others, John 7:53-8:11, and the book of Revelation reflect these variant readings. This is one of the great things about having a Bible that is translated from the majority of the trustworthy Byzantine manuscripts that are in existence—the much greater probability of accuracy.

On the other side of the fence, most modern Bibles are translated from a few scant manuscripts (literally), and more often than not they do not even agree with each other. Not so with a Bible that is translated out of the majority! The experts in linguistics who have put these readings together, and diligently compared the manuscripts, had hundreds and hundreds of manuscripts to compare. It is my prayer that this work will bring honor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and to our God and Father; because all of this, all that we do, we do to know Him better, and to better understand His word, which He has given to mankind. “Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. (Prove 30:5,6). Peace of Christ to you all. In His service, Paul W Esposito Stauros Ministries
