Revised Edition of the Farsi John’s Gospel

July 29, 2008

December 2007 was a historic occasion for the Farsi speakers of the world, i.e. Iranians, Afghans, etc.  The Trinitarian Bible Society published a newly revised edition of the Standard 1895 Version of Farsi Gospel of John.  The 1895 Farsi Bible was a revision which Robert Bruce the missionary undertook, who revised Henry Martin’s Farsi New Testament, and William Glen’s Old Testament.

Henry Martin’s New Testament was based upon the Reformation Greek Text, known as the Received Text (Textus Receptus), however, Robert Bruce departed from that tradition to an unknown but Ecclectic text.  Even though in many places Robert Bruce’s edition was more literal and accurate, yet it was using an unreliable source.

So this revision work by the TBS is a return to the correct Greek text.  The TBS will continue in its work of bringing to the Iranian, Afghan and other Farsi (Persian) speakers an accurate and reliable Bible.  Please contact us or the TBS for free copies of the gospel.  However you can download the PDF text.  Please click on the following link: Farsi Gospel of John (Revised 2007)

Please remember that the text is copy righted by the Trinitarian Bible Socity, London, 2008.  If you have a Farsi speaking friend, please poin them to this blog post, or even better to my dedicated Reformed Farsi Blog.
