The New Testament part of the Christian Bible was originally written in Koine Greek and is therefore not a translation.[1] However like other living languages, the Greek language has developed over time. Therefore various translations have been completed over the centuries to make it easier for Greek speakers to understand Holy Scripture.[2] Translations of the Old Testament, which is the other part of the Christian Bible, have been completed for similar reasons.[3]

Evidence for Inclusion in Wythe's Library

There is no doubt that Wythe owned this title—a copy of the 1728 edition of "Novum testamentum. Gr. 8vo. Lond." at the Library of Congress includes George Wythe's bookplate. Thomas Jefferson also listed "Novum Testamentum" in his inventory of Wythe's Library, noting that he kept the volume himself. He later sold it to the Library of Congress in 1815. Both George Wythe's Library[4] on LibraryThing and the Brown Bibliography[5] list the 1728 edition published in London based on the edition Millicent Sowerby included in Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson,[6]. As yet, the Wolf Law Library has been unable to procure a copy of Kaines Diathekes Apanta.
