It is no mystery to Bible scholars that the New Testament was not written in the Classical Attic, but in “the common dialect” (ἡ κοινὴ διάλεκτος) of the era; known by its English transliteration as Koine. Although innumerable methods of study are propagated by Bible teachers concerning Biblical Theology, it is agreed that there is no better way to discover truth from God’s Word, than through a sound method of historical exegesis. When left with a translation only, many of the riches – easily found within the Koine and Roman history – go unnoticed by the average reader. This dilemma has caused untold thousands to heed the Apostle Paul’s advice to, “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (II Tim. 2:15). Because it is known that volumes of treasure are still buried within the Koine, the student is challenged to “search the scriptures” (Jn. 5:39) and chart his own independent course with God’s Word. In this Limited Edition Greek New Testament, the student will have the ability of the scholar to properly interpret and effectively master the New Testament’s riches by educating himself in the following:
