    Dear Brethren,
    TinyTim and Philip have each mentioned to me an interlinear Bible, what is a good one?

    Is this like a Keyword study Bible? Is there anything wrong with a Keyword study Bible?

    There are several good ones. I recommend George Ricker Berry's "Interlinear Greek-English New Testament" published by Baker. It has the Greek text of Stephens (1551), the interlinear literal translation by Berry, and the text of the KJV.

    I also recommend Jay Green's "The Interlinear Bible - Greek English" published originally by Hendrickson, and now published by Sovereign Grace Publishers of Lafayeet, IN. It uses Scrivener's TR.

    If you prefer an Alexandrian based Greek text I would recommend "The Interlinear Greek - English New Testament" The Nestle Greek Text with a Literal English Translation by Alfred Marshall, with a parallel KJV text, published by Zondervon.

    For the Greek UBS 4 text I like "The New Greek English Interlinear New Testament" Translators: Brown, Comfort, and Douglas. It is published by Tyndale

    The Hebrew MT text I like The NIV Interlinear Hebrew-English Old Testament Four Vols. in One by Kohlenberger published by Zondervan

    Hi Frogman,

    Here is what I have. The first is "The Interlinear Bible" by Hendrickson. It has both the Old and New Testaments in one book. According to the preface it uses the Masoretic text of the type set in 1866 by the British and Foreign Bible Society (for Hebrew) and The Received Text as set by Stephen Austin and Sons for the Trinitarian Bible Society in 1976, based on "The New Testament in the Original Greek According to the Text Followed in the Authorized Version, edited by F.H.A. Scrivener and published in 1894-1902.

    It has a list of Varients for the Majority Text.

    It also claims:
    "The text retains a few readings from the Latin Vulgate, two or three without Greek-manuscript authority (e.g. Acts 9:5-6), and one from the Complutensian Bible (1 John 5:7). Although we do not accept these as true scripture, we have allowed them to remain; the appendix must serve as the needed corrective." --- so says the preface.

    The English translation is Word for word Internlinear with The Literal Translation of the Bible in a column on the side.

    My Second is the Zondervan Parallel NT in Greek and English. According to its preface: "The Nestle's Greek NT used herein is one of the most reliable available today. This widely used edition was prepared by Eberhard Nestle."

    The Bible has interlinear translation and then both the KJV AND the NIV for comparison.

    Finally, my third is Tyndale's The New Greek/English Interlinear NT. It claims to use the Kurt Aland version of Nestle's. It is interlinear with the New Revised Standard Version on the side.

    I'm not recommending any of these, just stating what I have available. I'll leave the recommendations to Dr. Bob. [​IMG]

    Actually agree with Skan's first choice. The Rickers-Berry has a lexicon, synonyms, KJV margin text and literal English under Stephanus Greek text WITH most of the variants and critical apparatus so you can see how the other Greek texts varied. Top notch.

    BTW, it is in pb and under $20. Cannot imagine a pastor, ss teacher, etc without one.
