    Does anyone have any info on this Greek NT Text? I heard Robinson and Pierpont were SBC Theologians. And is it a good NT text? And has any major Translation been based on this text?

    I had a copy of this Greek NT before I sold off a majority of my library; I had absolutely no use for this book other than for reference. There is no English translation based on this Greek NT that I know of, and it generally follows the Majority text. Do a web search on the authors and you should find some interesting articles.

    "Pierpont and Robinson leave out of consideration
    the evidence of the ancient versions and patristic quotations, and deal exclusivly with evidence from the Greek copies.

    The Edition thus aims to represent not merely the majority of all manuscripts but the earliest form of the Byzantine text."

    I wonder if KJVO would be happy if a modern version was translated from Robinson/Pierpont Byzantine Text.

    Only if they didn't believe the KJV itself was perfect!

    Very true. And that would mean none would except it.
