    Bruce Metzger writes, "Interlinear translations into Old English begin to appear in the ninth and tenth centuries." The Bible in Translation pg. 56. From the context, I believe he is referring to Latin/English interlinears. Does anyone know of any early Greek/English interlinears and, if so, what Greek text was commonly used?

    Yes, he would have been referring to a Latin text with an Old English translation below or above that text.

    I am not aware of any early Greek/English interlinears. Since William Tyndale is supposed to be the first one to translate from the Greek New Testament into English, it is not likely that there would be any before
    his time.

    Scholz's NT

    I have an undated Greek-English NT that is not interlinear per se, but has parallel columns. It must be from around the middle of the 19th century, since the Greek is the text of M. A. Scholz, 1794-1852. That's probably as close as you'll come to a Greek-English interlinear until the 20th century.
