    Last week The Nieuwe Bijbel Vertaling came out replacing the Bible Version we currently use as our church's default Bible.
    Now the fight is on. Which Bibleversion is going to be our next Bibleversion.
    You ofcourse get to join the fun [​IMG] ...ermmm make that prayerfilled struggle.

    ps. No ofcourse your votes won't actually have any influence. :rolleyes:

    Yes I am waiting around being bored while the new layer of wax on the floor of the church's main worship area dries. It's that time of the year again. [​IMG]

    Change is NEVER good. If you HAVE a good translation in your hand and heart, why change?

    I forgot to include the Vulgate. What a blunder!

    Last questions in both sections are irrelevant to the poll, therefore it appears somebody is baiting for a fight.

    At last! Dr. Bob and I agree!

    But I'm using a REAL old translation, not some of the modern version stuff from 1600 or so. Can't trust those modern versions. [​IMG]

    Seems like Jesus called the Jews to change but many would not.

    Well, Dr. Bob, I didn't take latin in HS, so I guess I'm just out of luck unless there are some books to teach me latin...LOL (the old version...you know...the one when you were a kid ;) )

    Vulgate, thousand years plus, gotta be THE right one! Or the Septuagint for the Old Testament since Jesus quoted it; and Vulgate on the N.T. :D

    You really KNOW Latin, you just don't KNOW that you KNOW it. Here is a well-known verse in the beloved Vulgate. I will put obvious English words after some:

    qui
    credit (faith in, believe, trust)
    in
    Filium (filial, son)
    habet
    vitam (vitality, life)
    eternam (eternal)
    qui
    autem
    incredulus (unbelievable)
    est
    Filio (filial, son)
    non
    videbit
    vitam (vitality, life)
    sed
    ira (ire, irk)
    Dei (deity, god)
    manet
    super (lots)
    eum

    Name that verse.

    That is what I liked about Latin in school. It was so easy compared to other languages. Of course, back then I couldn't understand why I took a language that had not been spoken for many years.

    I've been accused of being a plant of the Vatican on this board at least twice, so that shouldn't be to difficult.
