Modern Greek Translations of the Bible/New Testament

Post by bpk » Thu Jan 10, 2019 4:04 pm

I am curious if anyone here has much experience with Modern Greek translations of the Bible/New Testament.

Which ones are used mainstream in Greece among different churches (that aren't traditionally reading the original)?

interesting question.. since no one answering..

most Greek I met, do not read a bible
if there happen to be the most religious of them, there is a great chance that he uses the original (PT1904)
why? if you ask a Greek mind
you'll get as follows
why would we need another Greek of this very Greek writings?

but I maybe wrong

Qui ait : Et quomodo possum, si non aliquis ostenderit mihi ?

This seems to offer a relatively simple introduction to the thing.
