|There are so many Bible translations -- how do you pick one?|
EASY TO READ BIBLES?
Why do we mortals make God's Word (the Holy Bible) so hard to understand?
Could it be to perpetuate the business of religion?
The various denominations and the church seek the most accurate translation, yet the task of communicating the message is placed on the shoulders of religious leaders.
Religious leaders range from highly educated ministers and trained preachers to lay leaders of small study groups and home based churches.
What is an easy to understand translation of the original languages to everyday, easy English?
The original languages were Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek.
The content was in the context of the common, everyday words of the general population.
It was recorded over a span of many centuries.
Contemporary English is in a constant state of flux, leading to confusion when one is seeking guidance from the Holy Bible.
The formal concordances are helpful, yet they too mostly come from well organized sources.
Is there a solution for the everyday person, in the confines of their home?
I do not know for sure, but when I seek information on the many translations of the Holy Bible, I find many interesting lists. A small sample to illustrate the point:
This site addresses the seven most popular modern versions, with some guidance on how to approach the reading of any version. Only several pages long, it is an easy read and overview. Free access web site.
This page seeks to list all of the English versions, with links to further information. It is a starting point for the truly curious person who is seeking to understand the complexity of this challenge. Free access web site. It has links to many web pages that in turn spider out across the Internet into a confusing array of resources.
This page provides a tabulation and short review of the most current English "study" Bibles. You might find the resources to be a good companion for your choice of the translations of the Holy Bible. Free access web site.
BOTTOM LINE: This web page could go on for miles, but the lesson is simple: seek clarity and do your own thinking, praying, and be in fellowship with others seeking to do the same thing. The wise seek guidance and inspiration -- and discover that the wisdom in the Holy Bible far exceeds that of any other than Jesus Christ and His father, the eternally true and forever living God.
Please keep it foremost in your mind that the Holy Bible must be studied, committed to the heart and mind, and prayed upon for it to serve you as God planned. Why not let it guide your choices and decisions in your life? Start now and be joyful as you experience your personal discoveries!
