Question 149

I have a question which I hope you may answer. I have been looking for a Bible in Greek for many years now. Unfortunately all the Bookshops I have visited from Athens to Crete only offer την Καινή Διαθήκη. Some actually look surprised when I request the old Testament. There is no obvious reason for this.         

 

Answer to Question 149

 

It's true that it is very difficult to find the Old Testament in Greek or both the Old and New Testaments together in one book. My copy of the Old Testament is a volume of 9 very large books, but excellent for those who like a complete explanation of every verse. I have the complete Old Testament (Septuagint Version) on my website so you can read it from there or use it for reference. the link is: Old Testament Greek
