Re: Most accurate bible translation

I do not like "the living expression" it greaves my spirit. I hear you on that, Macca. So far, I think this Passion Translation is more of a paraphrase than a translation. Though, the "translator" claims to have been supernaturally empowered to produce it after an alleged visit to Heaven where he s...

Re: Most accurate bible translation

I might simply ask, if the authors of scripture did not use “Thee’s and Thou’s” how does that impact the accuracy of the translation that uses them? If the disciples did not speak with the formality of the king’s English, what is lost because their message is translated into that degree of formalit...
