Advice & Tips for Christians

 


There are dozens of Bible translations.  The King James, the New King James, the English Standard Version, the New International Version, the New American Standard, the 21st Century King James Version, the New Living Translation, and many others. 

Which is the best Bible translation for you to read?  Which is closer to the original text?  What translations use the original Greek, Aramaic, or Hebrew?  Is there one single version of the Bible that theologians, pastors, or churches prefer?

First of all, the Bible was originally written in Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic. Much of the Old Testament Hebrew was trans- lated into the Greek called the Septuagint.  I received a wonderful gift once.  It was a Bible that had four different translations in one edition. 

This is an exceptional Bible study tool that allows the reader to look at each different translation to extract meaning out of each and every verse you read.  I recommend that you own or buy more than one Bible translation and do not depend upon any one single version because different Bibles bring out different areas that can differ in interpretation.  I also prefer the Bibles with margins and footnotes where the original Hebrew, Greek, or Aramaic is given.
