I have revised my translations of the General Epistles translated from the Robinson-Pierpont Byzantine Textform 2018 Greek text. The footnotes I augmented some, and improved the accuracy of the translation some. I have uploaded a new PDF of the document, as well as published a new printed edition on Amazon. The printed book has 194 pages, and was newly published June 26, 2022.
I have published new printed editions of my translation of the gospel of Luke, with the Greek text alternating verse by verse with my English translation thereof; one edition with an eclectic Greek text, and another of the Robinson-Pierpont 2018 text which I received by email directly from Dr. Maurice A. Robinson.
There are a few minor improvements since the previous publication: I added the Tyndale House reading to many of the TC footnotes, using the abbreviation TH, and I corrected a few typographical errors.
They are 6″ X 9″ paperbacks, and the prices are the lowest allowed by Amazon for their “expanded distribution” plan.
The eclectic edition is $7.23, ISBN: 978-1-958612-01-9
The RP edition is $7.41, ISBN: 978-1-958612-02-6
Kindle edition also available for the Robinson-Pierpont edition, $0.99.

I had been working at my job 6 1/2 days per week, and not working on my translations. I was very frustrated and upset about this. Then I came down with hepatitis A, and had to lie in bed for 5 weeks, and I quit my job. I lost 50 pounds body weight.
Now that I am recovering, I have been working on making a Robinson-Pierpont edition of the gospel of Mark. In the process, I have added over a half dozen new TC (textual criticism) footnotes to Mark chapters 5 and 6. You can download a new edition of Mark here.
You can now purchase a printed edition of my translation of the Gospel of Luke, with the Greek text alternating verse by verse with my English translation. It is available on Amazon for $7.23, the lowest price Amazon would allow in its expanded distrubution plan. [Update June 8, 2022- I have terminated my agreement with my former publisher, Infinity Books of Malta, for non-performance issues. I can do myself what he was doing with Amazon anyway, and am working hard on replacing his editions on Amazon. I will keep you posted on new available printed and Kindle editions on Amazon.]
Update June 16, I have published a new improved edition of Luke Robinson-Pierpont on Amazon. It is priced at $7.41, the lowest Amazon would allow for the expanded distribution plan. This one also comes in a Kindle edition. $0.99
New Upload Byzantine General Epistles
I have uploaded a new PDF document, containing the General Epistles of the New Testament. It has the Robinson-Pierpont 2017 Byzantine Majority Text alternating verse by verse with my new English translation. PDF 3.5 MB, 530 footnotes.
The footnotes contain not only translator’s notes, but extensive notes covering the Greek manuscript variants, including the readings of the following seven (7) Greek New Testament editions: the Textus Receptus, Scrivener 1894 Ed.; Antoniades 1904; Byzantine Greek New Testament (Wilbur Pickering’s Family 35 text); the NA28; the SBL; the Robinson-Pierpont 2017, and the Tyndale House Greek New Testament (2017). Shown in this post is a screen capture of one of the footnotes.
This document has replaced the individual PDF files of those books James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude that had the Robinson-Pierpont Greek text with them.

This website was down for a couple weeks, because I had exceeded allowable usage in my hosting package. This was caused by a malicious attack from a company in Russia and Vermont, USA. I have subsequently upgraded my hosting package and added security features, so hopefully this will not happen again.
During the same week my website went down, after a week gone truck driving, I came home to find that my ground floor apartment had been flooded for 4 days. Some expensive books got damaged, including my Editio Critica Maior volumes. My unabridged Oxford English Dictionary is a total loss, as it is full of mold spores and the pages are stuck together. This is that two-volume dictionary that comes with a magnifying glass because the print is so small.
