Illustrated John in Greek

Michael W. Halcomb

The GlossaHouse Illustrated Biblical Texts (GIBT) series provides innovative resources that will allow readers of biblical and other languages to have a more embodied and engaging experience with Scripture. This present volume, which embeds Greek narrative, monologue, and dialogue within colorful illustrations, is the second New Testament volume. Pairing the Greek text of John with artistic renderings is of great value. This allows the text to be contextualized (and remembered) in a way that words standing on the page alone simply cannot do. Along with the Greek text, an English translation is conveniently located at the bottom of each page. This translation is fresh and also fairly literal; we have attempted to preserve word order significance and accurately represent the important features of the Greek text that are more emphasized and, therefore, more prominent. All of this was intended for the beginning student in mind, who may need help with Greek word meanings and understanding the significance of special constructions like purpose, conditionals, and participles. In this work, we have applied current research on linguistics and have sought to strike a balance between trying to translate the importance of every sentence element but not "over-translating" and moving into commentary.
