Textual Research on the Bible

Through its Academic Bible website’s homepage, the German Bible Society is offering a free download of the brochure Textual Research on the Bible: Introductions to the Scholarly Editions of the German Bible Society. The Society envisions that the brochure will

provide insight into this fascinating field of research. We have particularly in mind the interests of first-year students, who might benefit from a basic introduction like this. Thus we invite lecturers of exegesis and textual criticism to make use of this brochure in their classrooms. (Letter from the German Bible Society and Nida Institute)

The brochure contains several good images of significant people, texts, and places and describes some of the key editions and events in text-critical work on the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament.

Erratum: On pg. 26, the brochure describes the “Puntuation apparatus” present in the Greek New Testament. This apparatus has never seemed particularly amusing, but perhaps it deserves to be considered in this light. 😉
