Textus Receptus Revelation

I have completed and uploaded editions of the Revelation of John based on the Robinson-Pierpont Greek text, and also another one based on the Textus Receptus.  In addition, my previous eclectic edition of Revelation has added to it many more footnotes.  There are now 508 footnotes in these editions, showing the textual variants, and the ancient witness support for each.

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.

Krans Refutation of Holland

Now downloadable here and on my new Bible translation page: Krans Refutation of Holland

Author: Jan Krans, Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, an expert on Erasmus, refutes Thomas Holland, especially exposing his lack of scholarship regarding the last verses of Revelation which Erasmus back-translated from Latin. Especially Revelation 22:19. Textus Receptus Onlyists and King James Onlyists rely on the “scholarship” of other King James Onlyists, so never come to the knowledge of the truth. This document is a PDF, 2 MB in size. Download Krans Refutation of Holland.

Collation of Textus Receptus editions now available for download on my translations page: Scrivener, F. H.

Many people like to do a Bible Study pertaining to the underlying Greek Text that is used in the older Bibles compared to a new Bible.

Textus Receptus collation by Scrivener

One page from the Textus Receptus Collation by Scrivener

This is a collation of Textus Receptus editions

their differences, PDF, 1 MB. This document shows all the differences between Robert Stephens’ editions, Erasmus’ 5 editions (especially 1550), Elzevir 1624, and editions of Beza, Aldus, Colinaeus.

These all are called the “Textus Receptus” or “Received Text.”

By the term “Textus Receptus” is meant these various Greek New Testament editions from which the translators of the Geneva Bible, the Bishops’ Bible, the Great Bible, and the King James Bible, translated, to make their English translations of the Bible.

This is what we mean by the Textus Receptus.
