I need the below Greek/Hebrew manuscripts made available as Personal Books. I have the printed editions, but having an electronic copy in Logos format would be so handy as well.

Can someone assist in securing the manuscripts and preparing Personal Books of these?

Thanks!

Hi Nathan:

Don't know much about the original languages (looked at the pictures and I turned the pages  Big Smile), but I am certain that making these texts into PBs would be an almost insurmountable task for an individual, as the tagging would take nearly forever. And that's assuming you would find good, clean public domain electronic texts.

I think your best option is to pay Logos $70-$80 for them. The Lexham Hebrew Bible is about $45, and various versions of the TR range from low $20s to mid $30s.

There are many helpful forum users, but I doubt that anyone would be able to help you with PBs in this case.

The reason I'm resorting to asking about Personal Books is unfortunately, I don't believe these two manuscripts are available in Logos format. I showed these to my sales rep, and he said he didn't believe they were available and I'd have to resort to Personal Books. If for some reason they're either available in Logos format or would be later on through PrePub, I'd definitely purchase them!

Several people have made PB Bibles in a variety of languages. IIRC there is a template for chapter/verse floating around. Perhaps if you would title your posts something like seeking assistance from someone with experience making a PB Bible ....

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Sounds good. I changed the name of the post to reflect your suggestions. Thanks for it!

Hi Nathan:

Pardon my ignorance. I thought the Masoretic text was the main basis for just about all OT translations in Western Christendom and I thought the TR was the TR. I also think the TR is more precisely a "text", rather than a "manuscript", due to its derived nature.

I thought so as well, but apparently it's more "complicated" than that. Seems there's different editions of the TR, as well as it seems there is a difference in the MT that underlies the KJV and the MT that underlies other English translations. You're correct about the TR being more of a "text". That would be a more technical term for it.

My Hebrew professor is taking us on a tour of OT TC this semester (not sure if my Greek professor is doing the same for NT TC), so it's sure going to be an interesting semester!

In spite of it being the Lord's Day, I read this note and visited the 1st given link above and received this answer which was a pleasant surprize.

For Greek, this resource may be useful => The New Testament in Greek (Scrivener 1881) 

For Hebrew, do not know if Logos has a resource that has the Trinitarian Bible Society's marks above the Hebrew letters:

Interesting. I have the TR copy you mentioned, and that does look like the one they sell in print. As for the Hebrew Bible, hard to tell. I may contact them tomorrow and find out.

Thanks!
