Developer's Description

This is an English Orthodox Bible.

This is an English Orthodox Bible. The application is still under construction. Please support the developer.

I saw that there is no Orthodox Bible on Android, so I decided to start to build one.

Do not confound Orthodoxy with Coptics. This is a genuine Greek Orthodox Bible translated into English by authorized people.

The text of this Bible is a translation from Septuagint. It is the same text used by the American Orthodox Church and most Bible Studies.

For more study, take a look at Codex Sinaiticus.

------------------

The EOB is a complete Orthodox translation of The Holy Bible. Unlike other versions, the EOB provides over 200 pages of introductory material and appendices, including articles by the late Rev. Protopresbyter George Florovsky and Pr. Miltiades Konstantinou of the Aristotle University of Thessalonica. The main purpose of the EOB is to provide an accurate and easy-to-read English text of the Holy Scriptures that is suitable for use by Orthodox Christian communities and individuals, while providing an outstanding text for scholars.

The Old Testament (in progress) is based on the Greek text of the Old Testament (Septuagint / LXX) with all major Masoretic and Dead Sea Scroll variants documented in the footnotes. For reasons documented in the comprehensive introductory section, the EOB also provides the Hebrew / Masoretic versions (WEB) of Job, Jeremiah and Esther.

The New Testament (completed and available) is based on the official ecclesiastical text published in 1904 by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (again documenting all significant variants to the Critical Text, Majority Text and Textus Receptus). It also provides extensive footnotes and Appendices dealing with significant verses such as Matthew 16:18; John 1:1,18; John 15:26. The Patriarchal text was selected on Mount Athos from among a large number of reliable ecclesiastical manuscripts and appears to be identical or similar to Minuscule 1495 (KR subgroup).
