WHAT IS THE BEST NEW TESTAMENT INTERLINEAR ?

01/15/2010

What is the best interlinear New Testament regardless of translation (okay, so maybe among the KJV, NKJV, ESV, NIV, or NASB)? What do you think of Thomas Nelson's NKJV interlinear? I noticed Zane Hodges is an editor (that is a little scary).

Adam,

Thanks for your good question. My favorites are as follows:

Hodges and Farstad, THE NKJV MAJORITY TEXT INTERLINEAR; Thomas
Nelson--the one I use the most.
Mounce, GREEK INTERLINEAR FOR THE REST OF US; Zondervan--shows
the text of the NIV and then below it what Greek word they were
translating.
Mounce and Mounce, GREEK AND ENGLISH INTERLINEAR NEW
TESTAMENT (NASB/NIV); Zondervan--straight-forward interlinear
ESV REVERSE INTERLINEAR; Crossway--like the one by Mounce from
Zondervan but this one is based on the ESV. I used this some too.

Depending upon what version you read and study from and hear from the pulpit, I would use the NKJV and the ESV.

Your Book Servant,

Pastor Steve Martin
