interesting bible translation
« on: February 03, 2009, 10:56:08 PM »
i came across this page:

http://thetencommandmentsministry.us/ministry/free_bible/index.html

it seems this translation will be based on the septuagint and byzantine majority text NT, it seems to have an universalist background, anybody has known this page yet?

Doesn't sound good to me, to be honest.
An UR background is just as bad as a ET background.
Shouldn't we look for a God background?
That said; a good link to bookmark :thumbsup:



Did you see the Christian Bible thread jabcat started?
I think you might like that one too.

the problem is, every translation has a theological background, the New World Translation has an annihilationist background, the Concordant Literal Translation has an universalist background, while the mainstream translations have an ET background - do you get what i mean?

about the christian bible, i've read about, as English is not my mother tongue i'm in general not so interested in English bibles (I read the German concordant literal), i came across this translation by chance, and i think it's very interesting that its OT text will be the Septuagint and the NT text the byzantine majority text i think, i read a little about this controversy, Textus Receptus vs. Nestle Ahland, Codex Sinaitus etc.

I understand and fully agree. From your  1st post I got the impression you viewed a UR background as an advantage.

Mmmm, isn't the Christian Bible NT only? On its website I only read about Greek and NT.

you maybe mixed it up, i was speaking about the Free Bible Translation not the Christian Bible

"The FBT will use the Greek Septuagint (LXX), the oldest and most accurate copy of Old Covenant scripture. Jesus and the Apostles quoted from the Septuagint. The Christian church used the Septuagint exclusively. It is for these two principle reasons that the FBT will use the Septuagint."

"Most translations today are from the United Bible Societies 4th ed./Nestle-Aland 27th ed. Greek New Testament. However there are many problems with the choice of textual variants in the UBS/NA Greek NT. The so-called Textus Receptus, or rather Scrivener's text underlying the King James Version, has many problems as well. The Robinson Pierpoint Greek New Testament strikes a good balance between the two. Only a few translations are available of this Majority text type."

"The fine Old English word hell, which means to cover up or conceal, is now misunderstood, thanks to the corrupting influence of theologians and pagans, to refer to a place of torture apart from God where all who fail to meet a certain criteria are banished for ever. The FBT seeks to correctly translate Hades and Gehennah (the two words translated hell)."

this sounds all very interesting:

this seems also very interesting:

Free download for the last Bible you mentioned.
I greatly prefer something that can be search in an electronic way.
Also good as a preview if you want to buy the paper version.
Pitty it's not on amazon.

Just checked the .pdfs and I wouldn't even spent $1 on this Bible.
It's very irritating to read  :thumbdown:
