Read this article if you are a “fan” or student of the Bible. Dr. McKnight rightly states that there is ALWAYS a translation bias. In fact, I was reading an article last week about one translation “board” that is made up of all men…that on the surface may not seem like a problem but it does “color” translation issues because of inherent male perspectives that are undeniable when reading/working the text. People in churches and students of mine in University’s inevitably ask me, “what’s the BEST translation?” Truthfully, the best translation is a conglomeration of many versions of the Bible. In other words, the most faithful way of approaching the text is to use as many versions as possible. Like I said, everyone has a specific “take” on the original languages. Just like you would have a FULLER picture of an incident with multiple witnesses so it is true that when reading the Bible for study divergent translations will serve you best! So, here’s Scot’s article – like I said, if you are a student of the Bible, this will be “fun” reading for you!
