Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Translator Versions of the Bible?

Recommended Posts

I was in a Christian bookstore years ago and they had Bibles by different translators. They were all gone when I went back to buy them.

If you were a translator, you probably had to translate the Bible and you were on a translation committee. I'm sure some of these translators had their own translations of the Bible.

I was wondering if anyone could give me some references.

 

I'm not talking about Bible versions on Bible Gateway. I'm looking for versions that aren't well known.

Yes. I own "The New Testament" by Dr. Kenneth Weust. He was one of the translators of the NASB and part time professor of Greek at Moody Bible Institute. I also own his commentaries on translating the New Testament.

 

I know there are others but Christian booksellers seem to be promoting newer materials that I can get anywhere.

Here's one I played with a while back, the KJ3.

 

I don't see much value in them. The Bible is too big a job for even the best translator to do even a half-adequate job translating alone. I do find translator's notes to be very helpful, especially when those notes amount to commentary about translation choices.

Thank you. I have Jay Green's Interlinear Bible.

 

I know there are four other translators that have their own translation.

There are other modern day translators whom aren't on any translation committees as far as I know but they claim to have translated almost word for word to the NIV and NASB.

    • 1599 Geneva Bible

      I personally love this Bible. I have had mine for about 4 months now, and can't imagine reading without it. The notes are so helpful, and really give great insight to the Word. I love the old English, it really adds a poetic element, making it much easier to memorize.    Your thoughts? Like or Dislike?  Would love to have discussion!    God Bless!

    • Favorite Non-English Bible Verse?

      By that, I mean a, translation of course. Is there any non-English translation of the Bible that contains a particularly interesting or moving passage?   One I love from the Luther BIble is: "Und Jesus gingen die Augen über." (John 11:35)   It is rather poetic German meaning "And Jesus' eyes overflowed." The English translation is normally rendered "Jesus wept."   How about you? Thanks for sharing. :)

    • Bible chapters and verses that I would change

      I am not referring to the words of the Bible, but how these words were arranged in chapters and verses. I think many are okay, but there are several places I would change.  For example:    Colossians 4:1  I would prefer to have Colossians chapter 3 continue beyond verse 25. v. 18 "fitting in the Lord" v. 20 "well-pleasing to the Lord" v.  22 "fearing the Lord" v. 23 "work heartily, as for the Lord" v. 24 "it is the Lord Christ, whom you serve"
