Translating the Bible Into English (Bible Questions Part 3a)
< 1 day ago
What is the English History of the Bible? The translation of the Bible from its original languages (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek), is a complex story. The process of translation for each language is story in itself. As the Gospel spread to other lands, the books of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments were also translated, some earlier then others. The English translation compared to other translations is a relatively late translation. The story of the English Bible in many ways is similar to the other translation stories. To under the translation process, the student needs to be familiar with history and source documents behind the translation. Most readers of the English Bible today, are not aware of the dramatic story behind the book they hold in their hand. How a collection of books written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek changed Europe and especially England is taken for granted by many Christians. By using the story of the English Bible, we can see how religion, politics and intrigue each played their part. Although each translation story is unique, each story involves a process, how a group of people received God’s Word in their own tongue.
