We are excited to release the Essential Greek New Testament (thank you, James, for the title).
This book represents a new approach to the study of the Biblical Greek by allowing an absolute Greek beginner to start “reading” the Greek New Testament from the first day. As such, it will establish itself as an indispensable resource for those who would like to get a glimpse of the New Testament in the original. The compilation of resources will also be useful to those who have some knowledge of Biblical Greek.
For a limited time only, we set the introductory price to $4.99. Get your copy.
OSNOVA™ is pleased to announce the digital publication of Robinson/Pierpont’s The Greek New Testament for Beginning Readers: Byzantine Textform.
This Greek New Testament includes John Jeffrey Dodson’s lexical information along with brief definitions of words occurring fewer than fifty times, parsing of verbs occurring fewer than fifty times and various other helps particularly useful for those whose Greek is less than perfect, and the OSNOVA edition doesn’t disappoint. These helps are included, and many words are linked to the corresponding lexicon entry and grammatical parsing information.
The Kindle edition from OSNOVA™ includes a number of navigational aids such as Direct Verse Jump and hyperlinked table of contents. Short instructions on their use are included in the book itself, with more detailed instructions available on our blog.
This helpful study tool can be used by a beginning student of Greek or a busy pastor who had his Greek many years ago. You do not have to be an expert in New Testament Greek in order to use this tool profitably. The Kindle format makes this useful information accessible for all students of the Greek New Testament.
You can purchase The Greek New Testament for Beginning Readers: Byzantine Textform at our OSNOVA book store.

“Why not lighten your load and use a Kindle for Bible studies? You can take notes, highlight passages, search for words and phrases and interact with scriptural text on a Kindle just as you would with a book or with your Bible.”

VALUE OF THE BIBLE
OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION
FOR THE USE OF FAMILIES AND SCHOOLS

The general object of this little book is to show the excellence of the Christian religion, and of course, to prove the inestimable value of the book, in which this religion is revealed and inculcated. The writer has aimed to present to the reader the evidence of purpose or design in the works of creation; thus proving the wisdom and benevolence of the creator, no less than his unlimited power. So in the moral system, the adaptation of the laws of God to the best interests of men, both in temporal and spiritual things, is clear evidence of his wisdom and benevolence; and both in the physical and moral systems, the adaptation of means to ends affords indisputable proof of intelligence in the author.
“The Christian religion has already changed the aspect of a large part of the world. It has banished idolatry and pagan superstition from many countries; it has civilized and softened the manners of nations; it has mitigated the cruelties of war; it has inspired a spirit of peace; it has raised the female part of our species from degradation and slavery; it has founded charitable institutions to alleviate the sufferings of the poor; it has introduced the true principles of civil liberty; it has begun to arrest the barbarous practice of enslaving our fellow men; it has changed or is changing the character of the whole world. After a lapse of eighteen hundred years, men have learned that they are bound to labor for the furtherance of the gospel; that this is the great, the principal duty of all Christian nations, to which all other schemes of improvement are subordinate; and the work will prosper; the gospel will triumph, till all men living shall bow to the scepter of Jesus Christ.”
OSNOVA has released a free Kindle edition of the SBL Greek New Testament. The SBL Greek NT web site:
The SBLGNT is edited by Michael W. Holmes, who utilized a wide range of printed editions, all the major critical apparatuses, and the latest technical resources and manuscript discoveries as he established the text.

The NET Bible is a new English translation of the Bible, with 60,932 translators’ notes! It was completed by more than 25 scholars – experts in the original biblical languages – who worked directly from the best currently available Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts.
The translators’ notes make the original languages far more accessible, allowing you to look over the translator’s shoulder at the very process of translation. This level of documentation is a first for a Bible translation, making transparent the textual basis and the rationale for key renderings (including major interpretive options and alternative translations).
This unparalleled level of detail helps connect people to the Bible in the original languages in a way never before possible without years of study of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. It unlocks the riches of the Bible’s truth from entirely new perspectives.
