Description

The Precise Parallel New Testament presents seven of the most well-known New Testament translations side by side on each page along with the original Greek text. Comparing these translations verse by verse brings to light important differences in language and interpretation among seven works based on the same original language documents. Translations included in the Precise Parallel Translation have all at one time been considered the most accurate versions of their eras. This volume reveals how the perception of accuracy has changed over the years. The emergence of new scholarship has led to revisions of older versions such as the King James Version and the Rheims Bible. The versions included in the Precise Parallel New Testament are: The New American Standard Version, The Amplified Bible, The New Revised Standard Version, THe Rheims Bible, The New American Bible, The New International Version, The Authorised or King James Version. The Greek text included is the fourth edition of the United Bible Society's Greek New Testament. This volume gives remarkable insight into the effects time and different faith orientations have had on translation of the New Testament.This book is an invaluable resource for readers with a deep interest in the study of language and the Bible and is also an excellent reference tool for clergy and all students of the Bible. This book is intended for students of the New Testament, Ministers of most major Christian denominations, laity active in biblical studies.show more
