Feeding the Multitude

February 27th, 2013 | By Ian and Dominique Metcalfe | Category: Bibles Direct Latest

Why are there so many versions of the Bible?  Good question!  Time was when the King James Bible was The Bible, no doubt about it.

Actually, there has never been a time when there was just the one version. The KJV Bible had to compete with the Geneva Bible and the Bishops Bible and the Douay Rheims Bible 400 years ago. A multiplicity of translations is as old as the hills.

Talking about hills, the feeding of the five thousand on the hillside is told in three different Gospels;  Matthew, Mark and Luke. Wouldn’t it be simpler if we just had the one Gospel? One version? And what about John?

Of course each Gospel was written for a different audience. So too are the various Bible translations. One truth but many tellings of it.  Thank God for the faithful  translators who bring alive the various strands of His story and convey the Truth to us in words that we can all understand and act upon.

Allan will be launching several new exciting Bible translation editions in this our 150th anniversary year, to help feed the multitude spiritually.
