THE “TEXTUS RECEPTUS CSR9 – SN9X”
OFFICIAL NOTICE: THE NA-BISCONTI GREEK NEW TESTAMENT (THE NA-SENTRY 9X NOVUM TESTAMENTUM GRAECE (NAS-927)) HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH THE SUPERIOR BISCONTI GREEK NEW TESTAMENT (THE SENTRY 9X NOVUM TESTAMENTUM GRAECE (SN9X)). Unlike the NA-Bisconti Greek New Testament (the NA-Sentry 9X Novum Testamentum Graece (NAS-927)), the Bisconti Greek New Testament (the Sentry 9X Novum Testamentum Graece (SN9X)) starts from scratch and DOES NOT BUILD ON THE NESTLE-ALAND GREEK NEW TESTAMENT.
The terms “CSR9,” “TR-CSR9,” and “Textus Receptus CSR9” refer to the true text of the New Testament in ancient Greek. “CSR9” refers collectively to:
· The Textus Receptus (the Corroborated Greek New Testament)
· The Scrivener text (The New Testament In The Original Greek According To The Text Followed In The Authorized Version)
These are all the same text except that the Sentry 9X Novum Testamentum Graece (SN9X) includes a critical apparatus, actually a CAP-MX (pronounced “cap-em-ex”), a Critical Apparatus Matrix (a set of critical apparatus). Below you will find John 1:1-10 as it appears in the SN9X (Sentry 9X Novum Testamentum Graece (SN9X)) using the “Phonemic Template” and the “SGCA (Simplified Graphical Critical Apparatus) Format” (unlike other critical editions of the New Testament, which provide only 1 type of critical apparatus and 1 format for this critical apparatus, the SN9X provides 100 types of critical apparatus and 10 different formats, including 3 SGCA formats, for each type of apparatus). The following IVF apparatus (read further), the Phonemic Apparatus, analyzes divergencies between variant pronunciations of the ancient Greek. New discoveries in phonemics (the “study of speech sounds”) in the late twentieth century are one of the tools that we used to achieve 100% confirmation of the ancient Greek New Testament text. The following IVF (Interverbal Format [a format that inserts phonemic symbols between words and between letters in words]) apparatus uses STCE symbols (read below). An explanation, which you will only barely understand or will not understand at all, of the phonemic symbols will be found below. (The following graphic takes a couple of seconds to load.)
Note that the following phonemic symbols are STCEs (Synchronized Textual Calculus Equivalents). Therefore, traditional phonemicists will need retraining to be able to fully understand and use them. (The following graphic takes a second to load.)
