The Christogenea New Testament - Revisions & Corrections
This section will contain notice of any and all revisions or corrections which the author has chosen to make to these translations on or after the date when they were first posted.
We apologize that these corrections have not yet been applied to individual PDF files. We will make a note here when we finally have an opportunity to do that.
New Corrections (Since the latest CNT 1.4 was published):
September 13th, 2023
Added missing verse number at Revelation 18:10.
June 14th, 2023
Removed two errant periods in the middle of 2 Thessalonians 2:11. There is no imagining how they appeared in the text.
Removed a line of text from another area in the epistle found interpolated into 1 Corinthians 3:16. The clause, followed by a wayward carriage return, does not belong where it says: "31 in order that, just as it is written, 'He who is boasting, in Yahweh he must boast.'" There is no reason why this clause was found at this point in the text, and I can only imagine some sort of software error. I will investigate further soon.
New Corrections (Since the latest CNT 1.3 was published):
March 24th, 2023
Matthew 22:19, 36 added missing verse number, 23:30 closing single-quote added.
February 27th, 2023
Matthew 16:9 added missing verse number.
January 27th, 2023
Matthew 6:26, 7:10 and 11:5 added missing verse numbers.
October 7th, 2022
Luke 5:34: "sons of the bridechamber", rather than "sons of the bridegroom", which may have been another transcription error.
September 22nd, 2022
Mathew 25:45: "for whatever you have not done for one of the least of these", correcting an error of which I just became aware, thinking that was the way in which the passage had always appeared in our text.
September 15th, 2022
Revelation 19:2: Added missing verse number.
Revelation 19:11 added "called" in the phrase "called Faithful and True"; the NA27 had the word marked as doubtful, but we have decided to follow the contrary sources.
Past Corrections (prior to August 23rd, 2022 when CNT 1.3 was published):
July 26th, 2022 Major Revision
John 8:44: Change the end of the verse from "... and the father of it!" to "... and his father!"
The following is now being added to Appendix B of the Christogenea New Testament, the appendix titled The Devil and Satan:
Here in this third revision of the Christogenea New Testament we have made a major change to the final clause of John 8:44, which now reads: “When he speaks a lie, he speaks from of his own devices, because he is a liar, and his father!” While the phrase καὶ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ may be either “and the father of it” or “and his father”, the subject is Cain, the first murderer. While at one time we had accepted the traditional reading of this verse, during our recent Commentary on the Gospel of John, presented at Christogenea over two years from May of 2018 through May of 2020, we realized that the traditional commentators and grammarians were all wrong concerning this verse, that the subject of the sentence does not change from the original “your father the devil”, the “he” referred to by the earlier pronouns in the English version, to the noun for “liar” which also describes that same subject.
Because they imagine that the serpent of Genesis is the subject here, the Judaized churches read this verse and assert that the devil, or serpent, is the “father of lies”. However Cain is the first murderer of the Genesis account, and therefore he is the subject of the statements here, although Cain was not the first liar. Rather, his father the serpent was the first liar, and Yahshua Christ is making that explicit statement here in John chapter 8.
I must apologize for not making this realization when I first translated the Gospel of John in 2007.
April 21st, 2022
Revelation 6:8: Added missing verse number.
February 18th, 2022
Revelation 2:9: "... works and tribulation and poverty ..." Inserted the phrase "works and" following the Codex Sinaiticus and the Majority Text, rather than the Codices Alexandrinus and Ephraemi Syri.
October 1st, 2021
3 John 6: "... whom you shall do well having sent forth worthily of Yahweh." Translating the aorist verb as having sent forth rather than as sending forth better fits the context of the epistle.
August 25th, 2021
1 John 5:6: Added missing verse number.
June 24th, 2021
1 John 3:8: “... the works of the False Accuser.” Capitalize Accuser at end of verse.
June 10th, 2021
1 John 2:20: “... and you know all” should have been read “... and you all know”. The Nominative Case adjective is not the object of the verb, but rather it modifies the subject "you".
April 16th, 2020
John 20:23: Perhaps an typographical error here, where the first clause of verse 23 had read “The errors of any of you should forgive” and should have read “The errors of any you should forgive”.
February 22nd, 2020
John 19:7: God, rather than Yahweh, is more appropriate in this context.
February 14th, 2020
John 18:35: Added missing verse number.
January 4th, 2020
Mark 7:23: "23 all these wicked things come out from inside and defile the man!" An 's' was missing from things.
January 2nd, 2020
John 16:23: "... anything you would ask the Father in My Name He shall give to you." Correcting shall with would.
September 27th, 2019
John 12:45: "and he seeing Me sees He who has sent Me!" Missing an 's' in the fifth word of the verse. [Website version only, it must have been corrected in an early revision for print.]
June 21st, 2019
John 9:16: "This man is not from God..." God better then Yahweh in the mouth of the enemies of Christ.
January 23rd, 2019
John 4:48: Last clause of verse corrected to "Unless you could see signs and wonders, you would not believe!" The mood of the final verb was not properly expressed in the original.
December 22nd, 2018
Matthew 20:7: "Ha says to them" corrected to "He says to them", typo noticed by an astute reader... after all these years, and there are probably still others!
June 14th, 2018
John 1:43: "The next day He desired to depart for Galilaia and he finds Philippos." Changed case in second pronoun "he" to reflect understanding that it is Andrew who found Philip, Philip having been known to him prior to this event. With this, it is decided that the verse would better be read: "43 The next day He desired to depart for Galilaia. Then he finds Philippos, and Yahshua says to him 'Follow Me.'" This departs from the punctuation found in the NA27, but we find that it is more accurate.
May 25th, 2017 (I neglected to make this correction for version 1.2)
1 Timothy 3:1: the first sentence of this verse, "Trustworthy is this saying.", belongs with the end of chapter 2.
Past Corrections (before December 4th, 2017):
The following corrections have been made since version 1.1 of the Christogenea New Testament began publication in 2011 and they are now (from December 4th , 2017) included in the Christogenea New Testament published in soft cover and distributed through Christogenea.com, and labeled as Revision 1.2 (the PDF files are still not corrected):
November 9th, 2017
2 Timothy 1:14: "... the Holy Spirit which is dwelling within us." Somehow an error occurred reading the pronoun, the original having you.
July 13th, 2017
John 8:38: "things which I have seen from My Father" so as to follow the Codex Sinaiticus and Majority Text consistently in this passage, as the papyri and other manuscripts are divided.
May 18th, 2017
1 Timothy 2:9: changed "wreaths" to "braids", either translation being possible, we were unaware when we made our original how popular elaborate braids of the hair were in the first century Roman world.
May 18th, 2017
Hebrews 11:31: changed "Rahab the harlot" to "Rahab the madam-innkeeper", this being accurate in light of reasons given in our recent Hebrews commentary. We were nevertheless reluctant to make the change because of the complexity of the resulting phrase and the reasons for its accuracy.
May 18th, 2017
Acts 18:7: changed "Titios" to "Titos", long ago realizing that Titos Justus is the Titus of Paul's epistles. The Codex Sinaiticus (א) has Titos, the Codex Vaticanus (B) Titios.
March 16th, 2017
Titus 1:5: changed "I have left you in Crete" to "I had left you in Crete", either rendering being possible the change is more accurate in the context of the ministry of Titus.
January 13th, 2017
Hebrews 12:23: changed "those first born" to "those of the birthright", from a literal translation to a contextual translation, comparing πρωτοτόκων to the use of πρωτοτόκια in 12:16.
November 24th, 2016
Hebrews 9:25: "necessary for him to suffer often", the pronoun being used in relation to the high priest need not be captalized. We have also decided to remove the dash which follows this clause.
November 10th, 2016
Hebrews 8:9: The last words of the verse should be "says Yahweh", where an 's' was inadvertently omitted.
October 7th, 2016
Hebrews 6:19: "19 Which we have as both a secure and firm anchor of the soul, also entering into that within the veil" An improved translation where we had an unecessary pronoun, "... of the soul, and itself entering..."
September 29th, 2016
Hebrews 5:5-6: "5 Thus even Christ has not honored Himself to have been made a high priest, but He who said to Him: ‘You are my Son, today I have engendered You’ 6 likewise says in another: ‘You are a priest for the ages in accordance with the order of Melchisedek.’" An improved rendering with improved punctuation.
May 11th, 2016
1 Thessalonians 5:23 "Now may Yahweh of peace Himself..." slight change in word order.
April 28th, 2016
1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 "as a father to his own children 12 were we exhorting", verse 12 division was slightly misplaced to follow "were we" rather than "children".
April 1st, 2016
Colossians 4:7 "bondman", plural was an error.
January 14th, 2016
Philippians 2:12 "deliverance" to "preservation", a better rendering in the context of the epistle
November 19th, 2015
Ephesians 4:19 "all uncleanness with all arrogance" to "all uncleanness with arrogance"
October 8th, 2015
Ephesians 1:15 "the charity which is for all the saints" to "that which is for all the saints"
September 30th, 2015
Ephesians 1:5 and 1:11: change "pre-ordained" to "preordained"
May 1st, 2015

September 4th, 2014
Romans 15:19: Emend Illurika to Illurikon
August 22nd, 2014
Romans 13:11: "that hour we are already" - slight change in word order only.
May 12th, 2014
1 Corinthians 15:45: "the first man Adam 'came into a living soul'”- a change in punctuation only.
May 12th, 2014
Romans 6:4 "we were buried with Him through that immersion into death"
April 28th, 2014
Romans 4:9 "faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness."
April 22nd, 2014
Romans 3:10-18, 4:7-8 punctuation improved.
December 18th, 2013
Acts 23:31: "...towards Antipatris"
December 17th, 2013
1 Peter 2:13: "...whether to a king as if being superior"
June 21st 2013 through January 17th, 2014:
Acts 5:39, 6:11, 8:10, 10:22, 17:24, 27, 29, 30, 18:13, 22:3, 23:4, 24:15, 26:6, 8, 18, 20, 22, 29, 27:23, 24: God is the better rendering, rather than Yahweh, in these contexts.

Found the verses at Matthew 20:17-19 were missing from all of the texts of the CNT, the book and the PDFs and the website.
April 9th, 2011 (some of these had been awaiting attention for awhile):
Correction: Verse number for Matthew 1:8 had been omitted. ONLINE VERSION ONLY: Somehow the second paragraph from Matthew Chapter 1 had dropped from the text completely (may be a database issue). It was restored today. Note: The PDF file is always the final authority, and should also reflect the text of the first edition of the printed book.)
Correction: 1 Corinthians 15:42, "is" changed to "in", "it is sown in decay", typographical error.
Correction: Colossians 1:20 "though" changed to "through", "...having made peace through the blood of His cross..."; typographical error.

March 25th, 2011:
Correction: 2 Peter 2:19, added the word "one" to the text, which was part of the translation but errantly missed in the typed copy."19 Proclaiming for themselves freedom [or liberty] they become slaves of corruption. For by that which one is overcome, to this he is enslaved."

Editorial change in translation (either version is technically correct, but the new version is more accurate contextually):
Galatians 3:19: "Then why the law? It had been imposed on account of the transgressions, until the offspring would come to whom He had promised Himself, having been arranged by messengers in a mediator’s hand."
The old version of this verse read: "Then why the law? It had been imposed on account of the transgressions, until He would come: the offspring in which He had promised Himself, having been arranged by messengers in a mediator’s hand."
June 28th, 2010
Correction: 1 Timothy 3:13, I only made a notation in the online version, since "liberty" here would be better read "freespokenness".
