Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

More than we know, we’re blessed live in a day  of numerous accessible and available Bible translations. Rather than being good gifts to enjoy, having a favorite version can often be a source of tension and arguments within churches.

This week, Pastor Mark shares an answer to the question “What’s your favorite Bible translation?” and provides some categories for how we should think about the plethora of options that are available. These categories include:

  1. Corruptions
  2. Paraphrase
  3. Thought-for-Thought
  4. Word-for-Word

Watch this week’s video to learn more. For a more thorough answer on translations, read Pastor Mark’s blog called “Where did the Bible come from?

And…most importantly, no matter what the translation…read your Bible this week!
