Inspired by, I'm wondering what (obscure) translation(s) of the NT, other than perhaps Hart's translation, have been taken "to the absurd" in terms of how literal they are. Bonus points if FL offers them, because it doesn't offer Hart's.

I'd think Lee's suggested interlinear glosses make sense for the greek. LHI was older, and they used generic glosses.

I don't know of a good raw translation. Of course there's YLT which works off the majority text ... not too exciting. Your mention of Hart?

I really think an absurd translation has to make theological assumptions, due to greek's flexibility in glue words (prepositions, etc). And this translates into personal bias by definition. But maybe someone knows of a generally clean one.
