    Question NA28, why so many?

    I am curious as to why BW10 has so many versions of the same Greek text edition. You have BGT (BNT and LXT), BNT, NA28, GNT, etc. Aren't these all the same Greek text? I understand that some versions are Morphologies but the amount of NA28 editions seems like overkill. Is there a purpose for so many?

    There are multiple copies of several Greek editions, including Westcott-Hort and Robinson-Pierpont Byzantine.
    Two reasons for the multiple copies:
    1. Different coding schemes -- BibleWorks, Friberg, Robinson (also called "The Modified BibleWorks Greek Scheme").
    2. For use with the AGNT tab in the Analysis Window.

    For a list of the Greek New Testament versions in BW10, go to BW main menu / Help / BibleWorks Help Contents.
    Section 2, BibleWorks 10 Full Contents, starts off with a list of the Greek New Testament text and morphological versions, which should be helpful.
    BW10 Help Section 72, Morphological Coding Schemes, explains the differences between them.

    I hope this helps.

    So it's merely a matter of formatting. Thank you for the answer.
