My Bible says "NU Text"

6 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I use the NJKV, (no, not for discussion on translations)...and at nearly the beginning of every page, there is little print saying:

"NU text omits (word here)"

"NU text says (enter word)"

What is it?

Another translation?

Can't be......it's not a parralell translation Bible.....so...... :21:

What is the NU text???

Confused Yomo

If you go back to the front of your Bible where it has all those boring 'notes to the reader' it will list the fragmentary Greek texts it uses for references, and give you their abbreviations. NU is probably one of those......

NU-Text

These variations from the traditional text generally represent the Alexandrian or Egyptian type of text described previously in "The New Testament Text." They are found in the Critical Text published in the twenty-sixth edition of the Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament (N) and in the United Bible Societie's third edition (U), hence the acronym "NU-Text."

That's the explanation in my NKJV.

I don't understand what you mean....

So.....the NU is an original peice of work?

And why do they have it in the NKJV?

They are manuscripts other than the TR, Masoretic, or other texts used in the KJV.

I think the TR is the most prominent one...
