2 Corinthians 4:7  Now I have this treasure in an earthen container, so that its immense power might be seen to come from God and not from me.  11  For although I am alive, I am constantly being delivered over to death because of Yesu, so that the Life of Yesu also might be made apparent in my dying flesh.  12  Therefore, it is death that is continually operating in me;  yet it is Life that is continually operating in you...  14 because I am aware that the One who has awakened the Master Yesu, will also wake up me to be together with Yesu, and will have me stand together with you...  16  For this reason I'm not discouraged, even though my outward human [body] is continually decaying, nevertheless my inner self is continually being revewed day by day.

5:1  For I am aware that if my earthly tent home [my temporary home (my present body)] is demolished, I'm going to have a building [a new body] that comes from God, a home...among the heavens that hasn't been made by hands.  2  For in this one [my present body] I am continually groaning, since I am continually desiring to put on, like clothes, my home that comes from heaven....
Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23

From The Christian Bible Forward;

Christ vs. the Anointed One:  The Greek word "kristos" means the same thing as the Hebrew word "Messiah."  It is not a name;  but rather, a title, and therefore should be translated, just as "Messiah" was translated for people who didn't understand Hebrew.  The word was used with Yesu's name to differentiate Him from other people named "Yesu" or "Joshua", since only He is THE Anointed One.

(So the CB translators refer to Him as Yesu the Anointed One.)

So then, what shall we declare that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, has found?  For if Abraham was justified on the basis of his works, he has something to boast about, but not when facing God.  For what does the Writing say?  "And Abraham had faith in God, and it was regarded to him as being right [and just before God]".  Now to the person who is continually working, his wage isn't regarded as a favor, but as a debt.  Yet to the person who isn't continually working, yet is continually having his faith in the One who is justifying the undevoted person, his faith is regarded to him as being right [and just before God].  It is just like when David tells about the happiness of the human whom God regards as being right [and just before Him] apart from works:  "Happy is the person whose lawless ways have been forgiven, and whose wrongdoings have been covered.  Happy is the man whose wrondoing the Master shall by no means regard" [Psa. 32:1-2].  So then, is this happiness only for those who are circumcised, or is it also for those who are uncircumcised?  So then, under what circumstances was it regarded as being right [and just before God]?  While he was circumcised or uncircumcised?  It wasn't while he was circumcised, but while he was uncircumcised.

Hi WhiteWings or anyone,

I went to that website for the Christian Bible, and read everything there.  I was very excited.  However,  I tried to email them at Mail@christianbiblesociety.org to ask a question.  The email came back with a permanent error.  So I tried to call them and it is disconnected.  Has anyone had success contacting them?  I would really like to get that bible. :sigh:

Hi Outpouring,

Both of their e-mail adresses are broken for at least 2 years. Their site is gone.
James/Jabcat had success contacting/ordering by regular mail. Response time is about a month.
But that was almost 2 years ago, I have no clue what the situation is right now.


There are other good translations: http://www.concordant.org/version/index.html  ==> also a free electronic version.

Also check out the second link in my signature.

Pure Father, keep them by the power of Your name (the one that You have given to Me ['Yesu' means 'Yehweh-Savior']}...I have given your Word to them, and the world hated them, because they don't belong to the world, just as I don't belong to the world.  I'm not asking You to take them away out of the world, but to keep them from the Wicked One [Satan].  Purify them by the Truth;  Your Word is Truth!  Just as You have dispatched Me into the world, I have also dispatched them into the world.  So on their behalf I am purifying Myself, so that they might also be purified by the Truth.  "Now I'm not aksing only on the behalf of these, but also on the behalf of those who are continually believing in Me by means of their [the disciples]word, so that they all might continually be one, just as You, Father, are in union with Me, and I am in union with You;  John 17:12,14-21

thanks everyone, :bigGrin:

I have the Concordant and Youngs Literal New Testaments.  Been using those to compare with my other bibles.  I was impressed with the Christian Bible that the test on how literal it was and how it flowed.  Very nice reading.  Am curious to see how they dealt with some of the words I have been looking at and to see how it harmonizes with UR.  Have been tying to understand the part where those who have died with out Christ will eventually have the ability to bow their knew and confess Christ later on.  So far I only have two scriptures in the New Testament which are  (1Tim. 4:10, 1Cor.15:23) and (1Tim. 2:6) but I am getting off the subject and really should be posting this somewhere else.

I guess I should take a chance and purchase the Christian Bible.  I heard of another one that is in the making but I don't know if it will be as good, score wise.  It is called Transparent English Bible (TEB) It is from the Original Bible Project.  Don't think it is out yet.

I'm only surmising, giving my IMPRESSION from how I perceive it, but it seems to me they may lean toward annihilation. 

It is a very good reading Bible.  There are little comments within the text that informative, and other ones I could do without.  For instance, they say things like (in the Fiery Destruction of the last age).  They also say it's God's will for "all kinds of humans to be saved and come to the knowledge.." rather than all men.   So that could go along with annihilationism.  They don't use 'hell'.  So,  :dontknow: for sure ...

Thanks Jabcat,

well despite those types of comments, all in all, you think it is a good translation?  It sure seems easier reading than the concordant.  Appreciate your analysis. :thumbsup:

Yes it's a good translation. The comments are always [....]
But that's not what James means I think. Outside the [] is also a doctrinal view. But it's very mild. Perhaps it isn't even there.
I discussed this with James in PM and back then he wasn't really sure about it.
There are several possibilities:
a] Doctrinal translation.
b] Honest translation that doesn't use the best possible words at a few places.
c] Annihilationism is totally Biblical.
d] James sees things that are not there. That includes me because IIRC I brought up the topic.

Little note about c]
True Biblical annihilationism might be misundertood. Sodom got totally annihilated but God prommised it would be restored to greater glory as it had before. :2c:

Here's an example of something that sounds like an annihilation perspective in the Christian Bible;

The Father loves the Son, and has given everything into His hand.  Whoever is continually believing in the Son, has Life in the Last Age;  yet whoever is continually unpersuaded by the Son, won't see Life, but God's anger is staying on him [such that he will be destroyed in the Fire]."   John 3:35,36

Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23

First thing to note is the usage of Fire instead of fire.

How long does that age last? Why does destruction takes an age? Does that age refer to the "next age" of the so-called unpardonable sin?


(Matt 25:46) And, these, shall go away, into, ageľabiding, correction, but, the righteous, into, ageľabiding, life.

The use of punctuation and capitalization is pitfall enough, but unavoidable with our language. The unnecessary use of capital letters and phrases in parenthesis, in my opinion, is for no other reason than to present the biases of the translators(whether deliberate or not, who cares, the effect is the same).

In this case the caps perhaps tell us something about the ED view of the translators.

I sent a check in to the address above just over 1 month ago... as of yet it has not been returned to me, nor cashed (and obviously I haven't received the Bible still either)... hoping it comes through, sounds like quite the interesting and enlightening translation (even if perhaps it has an ED bias as some of you suspect - though good point by WhiteWings on Sodom...)
