Textus Receptus New Bible

Announcing a new English Bible translation translated from the Textus Receptus Greek text, into English.

By David Robert Palmer

I recognize and accept, that many of my brethren in the Christian body of Christ believe that the Textus Receptus is the correct Greek text for a New Testament translation from Greek.  Therefore, I have uploaded a new edition of my translation of the Holy Bible that is based on the Textus Receptus.  You can download the Textus Receptus version here, or on my translations page.

The Textus Receptus, also known as the TR for short, is a term used to refer to any of the Greek New Testament editions compiled in the reformation era, by men such as Erasmus, Beza, Elzevir, Stephens, Colinaeus, Aldus, and and later, Scrivener.  The King James Version is the most famous Bible translation made from the Textus Receptus, though all other reformation-era translations were made from it as well.  The King James did not follow the TR in every instance.  Mr. F. H. A. Scrivener made an edition of the TR in 1894 that more closely would resemble the text from which the King James Version was translated.

I have also uploaded TR editions of individual books with the Textus Receptus Greek and English text alternating.  Those are: James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John3 John and Jude.
