    Has it been out for a little bit? Did some former-child actor that did a tribulations movie do a review of it?

    I have noticed it on Bible Gateway. It is sort of interesting, but doesn't suit any purpose I would have for research. If I am wondering about how the Geneva translated something, I will want to see an old version.

    RGT is copyright 2019 by Five Talents Audio. I'd say that is pretty recent.

    Are these updated Genevas two different updates, or is the newest Geneva a new revision of the revision? Do we have an NNG or NRG? LOL. I am so confused.

    look at it this way, only took them over 400 years to get around to a revision. not like today, where it seems to be updated annually!

    Kathleen, here is the Brittanica history of the Geneva Bible. Might give a quick overview for you.

    I was introduced to the Geneva Bible by the Plimoth Plantation museum actors, and know a bit about the original version.

    I am totally confused by what is going on since Kirk Cameron and others have started advertising revised editions for sale.

    More about the RGT
    5 Talents Audio

    However, unlike the Geneva Bibles of the 1500’s, there is no commentary or other human adornment. The RGT intentionally omits these things and makes single interpretive choices, based primarily on the translations of William Tyndale and F.H.A. Scrivener (1894). The acknowledgement and study of textual variants is left to other Bibles more properly suited to that purpose.
    ...
    In scholarly terms, the RGT is a formal or complete equivalency, based on the Byzantine text-type family of manuscripts. At this writing, the RGT is one of only a few major modern translations of the New Testament to be so - some others being the NKJV (New King James Version), NMB (New Matthew Bible) and MEV (Modern English Version). All other modern translations, including the NASB, ESV, NIV, and NLT, use the shorter Alexandrian text-type family of manuscripts as their base text, which, in addition to excluding passages such as Mark 16:9-20, John 7:53-8:11, and the “Johannine Comma” of 1John 5:7-8, also contains hundreds of other undocumented omissions from the Received Text.*

    There are no hardcopy versions available of either?
