Greek NT Punctuation Marks

Date: Tue May 09 2000 - 23:41:42 EDT

Greg Kilbrai asked about the punctuation marks in editions of the New
Testament. I do not remember what the origin is. (I may never had known.) I
remember reading in my first testament back in the late 70's the methods used
in selecting the punctuation for that edition (N-A). I recall Harold
Greenlee had much to do with it. (That is why I read it. It was rather dry.)
As to editions using English pundtuation. the edition I now use has English
punctuation. If that is what you desire, I use an edition called the
Majority Text published by Thomas Nelson in 1985.
It does not have as much textual information. I think the editors focused
primarily on the documents from Asia Minor and Greece (Byzantiun) and they
give information from the Alexandrian set only when the differences are
greatly significant
