I just received the following update on the Alpha & Omega Bible:
The Alpha & Omega Bible (AOB) is a 5 volume study bible. This translation is a compilation of scriptures from the Paleo-Hebrew fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls, a revision of Brenton’s translation of the Old Testament Greek Septuagint (LXX), as well as both testaments from the Codex Sinaiticus, the Codex Alexandrinus, and the Codex Vaticanus and many other ancient manuscripts.The translation of the Old Testament is based mostly upon Sir Lancelot Brenton's translation of the Greek Septuagint (LXX), as well as the Codex Vaticanus, Codex Sinaiticus & Codex Alexandrinus. But we also consider the more ancient Paleo-Hebrew fragments & manuscripts such as the Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient scrolls. Therefore, this Old Testament is not just a modern revision of Brenton's translation and is not based only upon the Greek Septuagint. But rather, combines information from Brenton's translation (with more modern English), information from ancient Paleo-Hebrew manuscripts including the Greek portions of the Dead Sea Scrolls and information from other ancient bible manuscripts, all together, thereby restoring the original scriptures as much as is possible in modern times.The New Testament translation is based mostly upon the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece 27th & 28th editions, Codex Vaticanus & other ancient Greek manuscripts that are older & more reliable than the pagan Masoretic manuscripts that most modern bibles have been based upon. Although, for both the Old & New Testaments, we also examine & consider the traditional Masoretic Received Text and 20+ other translations including the very first complete printed bible, the "Complutensian Bible". But we give precedence to the oldest & most complete Greek manuscripts.The Alpha & Omega Bible (AOB) was first published in 2015. It has now been improved and updated with more notes, more cross references and improved translations, as of June 2022. Free PDF download.The old web address of http://alphaomegabible.
