On an aside: when I first started pursuing Greek (less than a year ago) I
was shocked to discover that I could get an interlinear for less than a
full Greek New Testament:


Granted, the full Greek text has the apparatus, but at this stage of the
game I don't use the apparatus and wouldn't know how even if I wanted
to! I wonder how many have been encouraged to use an interlinear edition
just because it was cheaper? Not to mention the fact that I got the
interlinear in 2 days, while it took ABS 2 months to send me the Greek

$45 just seems a bit ridiculous for 50 pages of text almost 2000 years out
of copyright.
