Translation Should I use?
Several times the Lord warns against
"adding and taking away" from His Word.
Despite these clear warnings, the new versions, take out and add text, over and over!
The NIV completely removes 17 verses! The RSV- 25! the NASV- 17! NRSV-18!
There are basically two categories of New Testament manuscripts which all bibles are based upon.
The Majority Text (Textus Receptus)
Minority Text (Alexandrian Text).
Let’s look at what the modern translations have to say
Footnotes throw out the versions Say something like this
A few late mss and versions contain this paragraph,
some manuscripts end the book with 16:8;
Different Words for the same Greek Word
When translating from one langue to anther,
A Greek word may have several English words that can be used,
Depending on the context
The way the word is used in a passage.
Some of the manuscripts will levee out a word in a verse,
or several words and some times a complete verse or several verse.
The manuscripts may differ in the Greek words that are in a verse, one may have the word for Father
and another may have the name of the Fathers.
Mark 1:14 gospel of the kingdom
1 John 5:7, 8 The Trinity
The Deity of Jesus Christ
John 9:35 Son of God or Son of Man
Phil 2:5, 6, 7 Equal with God
Heb 10:37, 38 Who Saint’s or Jesus
The manuscripts add a word two times, G1473 which changes the meaning of the verse.
By adding One that makes the verse to mean Jesus instead of a Believer.
1 Cor 11:16 Do or Don’t
We see that some of the translators corrupted the word of God,
they you’d a word that means exactly the opposite,
made a new Doctrine.
1 Cor 2:13 Comparing Spiritual
The problem with this verse is the manuscripts and the translators.
The manuscripts leaves out the word Holy,
used a word here, that
changes the entire meaning of the passage.
We have seen from these examples
that the so called better manuscripts have some series errors in them and are missing a lot of the verses.
We have also seen that for some reason the translators made some series areas in there interpolation of some words.
Many believe that the new Bible Versions
that are coming out are just updated to making the meaning of the words and phrases clearer or easier to understand.
After taking a closer look, we find this is not always true.
