Greed New Testament


I bought the New Testament in Greek. It says something like this: Editio academica quarta decima. I am familiar with the fact that we have official editions of the Vugata and the Nova Vulgata but how it is with the Greek New Testament I don’t know. What is the official edition(s) (we have two official Latin Bible) of the Greek Bible (I am mostly interested in the New Testament)?
Could you please explain this to me? How does this work?


Hi Hank,

Translations need to be supervised because the translator can be more or less competent or objective.

For the original Greek or Hebrew, all that is needed is to make sure that the text is all there . Greek New Testaments published by non-Catholics, (such as the Nestlé) are routinely used in Catholic seminaries.
