Elpenor's edition publishes the New Testament in the original Greek language, known also as "Koine". Coming from Byzantium and being used until our days in Greek speaking Orthodox Churches, this version can be regarded as the most authoritative form of the New Testament text. Text according to the 1904/12 edition of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (Antoniades version) with corrections of typos made by the Church of Greece.
The text is illuminated with images of Byzantine manuscripts, photos of churches in Athos Holy Mount and in other places in Greece, Orthodox Icons and various Orthodox style drawings.
Except for the specific division into paragraphs, which is not established in tradition, but changes according to each editor, decided by Elpenor in this publication -- grammar, syntax, vocabulary and any other aspect of the text is fixed, and is the one used by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and all Greek-speaking Orthodox Churches.
Elpenor's edition aims at personal studying, which is the reason of using a relatively large typeface contrary to pocket editions that facilitate reading during the liturgy, when one may need to stand up.
Reading the Bible in Greek, we prepare conditions for a deeper understanding of biblical meanings, while by itself a contact with Greek elevates our thinking.
