THEGNT presents a revised text based on the edition of Tregelles and following documentary principles. The meaning of this phrase will be expounded later. Dirk Jongkind is primarily responsible for the initial revision and his editorial decisions are then being reviewed by Peter Head and Peter Williams. The three of us form the editorial committee.
One of the exciting features of THEGNT will be the presence of words not found in Greek dictionaries, concordances, or grammars. One could be provocative and say that this is because these sources have spelled them wrongly, but one might perhaps say that the standards of spelling used in the earliest manuscripts sometimes consistently differ from those used by modern editors, and that the documentary evidence suggests that the 'non-standard' spellings are not scribal innovations.
Whatever else one may say, sitting down to discuss the text of the New Testament with learned colleagues is incredibly enjoyable. I look forward to next month's meeting.
