Because comments had to be closed on a previous post, I am making a new post to correct an important factual omission in that comment thread.
Is there ANY translation of the bible anywhere that’s based on the Byzantine MSS?
Yes the EMTV. http://stores.lulu.com/elected
a Public Domain (no copyright) Modern English translation of the Holy Bible. … The World English Bible is based on the American Standard Version of the Holy Bible first published in 1901, the Biblia Hebraica Stutgartensa Old Testament, and the Greek Majority Text New Testament.
The meaning of the last part may seem confusing, but I understand it to be that the ASV text has been revised not only to update the language but also such that the New Testament conforms to the Majority Text, i.e. the Byzantine Text. WEB is not yet in print, but the New Testament is complete and almost finalised, and available online. The lead translator, Michael Johnson, is also a co-worker of some of us BBB contributors.
Meanwhile I note that Suzanne McCarthy was also unhappy to be denied the chance to join in the discussion on the previous post, and so posted what she wanted to comment in a post on her blog, with the provocative but well justified title ESV says Christ is not a mediator between God and women. If you wish to respond to what she has written, please do so on her blog, not here.
