The entire Consistent New Testament (CT) available for download!

Thanks to someone in Florida (I think) and South Carolina and Millie in NYC - we now have the New Testament available for download in a searchable word document.

It is the BEST honest translation of the words from the Greek to the English.

Just click on the link above, then on the next page, click on "download" in the upper left area, and this will download to a word document on your desktop.

If you don't have word and would like this in a pdf file, let me know.

If you know of a better (free) way to get this online, just let me know!

But at least this is a start!

If you love this and want to make a donation - just look on my blog over on the right hand side and send donations to the Mount Trust Fund.

Ralph H. Mount Jr, made this translation about 1987. He took one English word for one Greek word and consistently applied that same English word each time the Greek word was used. He didn't use different English words for a single Greek word. And he didn't use different Greek words for a single English word. Thus - a more consistent translation of the Greek into English.

He also didn't take previous translations of scripture and use them to make decisions. He translated directly from Greek to English.

If you see multiple words with hypens between them, they should be read as a single word. The best way I can explain that is if there is a Greek word "xyz" and Mount has it as "going-to-the-store" then that single Greek word is best translated as the 4 English words hypenated together. It takes a little bit of time to get used to reading scripture this way - but it makes perfect sense. If you've ever studied a foreign language, I think you will get it.

If you truly want to know what scripture says, that the word "love" really is the English word "charity", then you will love this CT. If you want to study even more, order the cassettes from the source over on the right.

Finally, you can go to any website and pull up a King James version of the New Testament and place it to the right of this word document and make your own comparison. But if you want them printed side-by-side, then order it from the Mount Trust. It's truly a great resource to own!
