I would love to see a Modern Greek Bible, suggestion: Filos Pergamos.

Presently I have to toggle over to an app, or to a webpage while working in Logos for other books. Any plans to have modern Greek Bibles?

Hi Mark

dit you talk about a modern Greek Bible?

I have The Holy Bible in Today’s Greek Version with Deuterocanonicals in my Libary but can't find it in the Store for you...but maybe you have it to

Logos used to carry the 1997 Today's Greek Version (here the resource page) but they seem not to sell it anymore.

I own this resource, and I assume it has been part of the SESB product line that was offered on CD-ROMs for Libronix/Logos 3 by the German and Netherlands Bible Societies some years ago and contained quite a number of bibles in various European languages - I think there was a "supplemental" CD-ROM that may have had this version. Maybe you find one of those traded on the Internet someplace - or some user willing to sell you the license to that bundle (off the Logos forums).

Hope this helps a bit. In the larger scale of things, you are right that Logos should offer bibles in modern languages - they are doing so for some of those, but it's a long-winded process of securing the publishing rights and the creating a bible resource.

Thanks guys, for working on this for me.There does NOT seem to be a way currently to purchase a Modern Greek version. I would be happy with either the Today's Greek Version or the Filos Pergamos if it were available. I am currently in Cyprus, but also teach at Greek Bible College. I would think there is a population of people interested in using Logos with a Greek Bible, and now we see that it actually exists, the only problem is accessibility.

Hey Mark

I sent an Email to CS to ask if you could have mine (I don't Need it) but I'm not shure if this works out cause it was in the SESB Collection I gues and I Need this Collection

If they answer I let you know

Sasha, that was very thoughtful of you to try - THANK YOU!

I tried myself to transfer my Pastoral Library in Spanish to a pastor friend (I'd pay the difference, I think I paid around $100 for it at the time), but they would let me do that because they said it was the first Logos purchase I made - it wasn't, but they didn't count earlier LIBRONIX purchases. It was going to cost a fortune to do that since I would have to "rebuy" my subsequent purchases. 

Blessings to you!

Yes, you have the New Testament. Syros Filos is apparently the name of the translator. The whole Bible is available. I'm learning Greek and this is a pretty straight forward edition of the Bible, used in many churches. Unfortunately, as in English-speaking churches, there is not uniformity among the churches. Of course, we will all be speaking Greek in Heaven, but no one knows which version :)

I found one for sale:

A bit costly though (ouch...)

Jan Krohn:
But this seems to be the first version. A modern Greek bible seems not to be contained there - according to the archive.org-copies of various internet sources the TGV is part of the SESB 3.0 package (no need to look for the supplemental CD-ROM) and it seems to have been part of the additional content that SESB 3.0 had over the SESB 1.0/2.0 prior versions. I just dug out the upgrade CD-ROM for SESB 3.0 and the file for TGV is on it.

I don't have SESB 3.0 (only up to version 2.0), and still have access to the modern Greek version. So it must have been added in version 2.0 (which still doesn't help with this overpriced 1.0 version though...)

I have this one which is the complete Bible in demotoki

 ΣΠΥΡΟΣ ΠΦΙΛΟΣ  copyright 2010

ISBN 978-960-7241-89-4.

It has a flexible cover and some graphs, maps and helps. Although I don't hardly use it, it is a nice carry bible. If I lived in Greece I'm sure this is what I would carry to church. And...the numbering is the new style which we are used to and not the alphabet style numbering.
