    But when the general Editor passed away, moved to CT texts...

    Would it had made much difference IF stayed based upon greek majority texts?

    Here's a link to verify the point above.

    I probably wouldn't have bought and used the text if it had been MT based. This would have discredited the text in my view and the view of many scholars.

    I believe that the translation that Farstad was working on when approached by Broadman & Holman can be found here: http://www.livingwater.org/about.html

    The translation appears to be called, "Logos 21". This website only has the Gospel of John available. I am not sure if any other parts of the translation were ever published. Also, the website has not been updated since 2003, so I am not even sure it is still being maintained or if the free booklet is still being offered.
