    Question about Bible Version....

    jaybo, Before God, this is my responsibility, following the example set by the Berean Jews: "Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true"...

    Question about Bible Version....

    jaybo, This book, A New New Testament (Mariner Books 2015) is endorsed by Marcus Borg, a postmodern Jesus Seminar author whose god is that of panentheism, as he describes in The God We Never Knew (Harper Collins Publishers 2015) and Meeting Jesus Again For the First Time (Harper Collins...

    Question about Bible Version....

    jaybo, If this is the book by Hal Taussig, it is recommended by the thorough postmodernist, Marcus Borg. I wouldn't waste my time reading it as its focus would not be listening to the literal meaning of the text. It's a subtle book that will draw you away from the Bible and the Savior. Oz

    Dorothy, You and I are wasting our time having a discussion on Bible versions as you don't seem to comprehend that the only God-breathed Scriptures are those in the original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. Neither the KJV nor NIV is God-breathed. They are translations from the...

    Question about Bible Version....

    Dorothy, Why does it take a doctorate to explain why some translations in the KJV needed explaining to make verses understandable? Hence the NIV, NLT, ESV, NRSV. The facts are that words have been added to the KJV to make the meanings clearer. Most people don't have an understanding of Greek...

    Question about Bible Version....

    Louis, The NIV changed "man" to person or some appropriate designation because that is what anthropos means in context. Adelphoi (brothers) is most often translated as brothers and sisters because that is the meaning of the Greek noun in many contexts. Oz

    Yours is the false accusation. The Apocrypha was in the original KJV. Please get your facts straight. See: https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Apocrypha-Books/ Oz

    Question about Bible Version....

    It is based on inferior transcripts. Choose the NIV, ESV, NRSV, NLT or NET. Oz

    Question about Bible Version....

    You already know the Apocrypha is NOT in the NIV. Quit trying to make a mountain out of a molehill. You've built a straw man logical fallacy.
