I think the Amplified provides a balance to that aspect of THE MESSAGE.
gentile believers...hence christians...you see there are distinctions...to say all gentiles are grafted in would say that all gentiles are saved....the tree represents Gods chosen people....the graft represents the church....only those saved through grace are going to be grafted in.....hence it is save to say only christians will be grafted in.
im sorry but if your going to study biblical prophecy your going to need a real bible..not someones opinion on the matter....word for word translation would then obviously be the best thing and what other than the NASB or MKJV offers that?
You may be mixing threads up.
This is a caucus thread . . . not for contentious postings etc.
I respect your opinion.
And do not wish to make this caucus thread contentious about translations.
There are at least as many opinions about translations as there are translations.
There are threads about such.
I believe each translation is BOTH translation AND paraphrase. It’s impossible to translate without paraphrasing.
I believe each quality effort offers nuances others have missed here and there.
The best translations are still OPINIONS on the matter. I don’t find COMMITTEES opinions necessarily more accurate, faithful to the original or anointed.
Perhaps you’d like to start a prophecy thread using your preferred translations.
And, I think it would be perfectly fine to offer verses from those translations
in a collaborative, mutually supportive exploring together dialogue hereon.
I always want to know what the original Author meant, not what the translator would like you to think he meant. The translator is supposed to remain faithful to the author's text, but so many translations today add to and take away from the text, like Luke 4:4.
I prefer a version that is as close as possible to the Traditional Greek and Hebrew Texts underlying the KJV and thus prefer the KJV.
Certainly don’t want a KJV only/bashing thread here.
KJV has translation problems, too. We don’t have the originals. All translations are flawed. All bring something to the table.
It’s not translations that lead us into all truth
. . . HOLY SPIRIT does that.
Then why is there scripture at all??? And how would you be able to say that unless you read it in the scripture???
The scripture is a product of the Holy Spirit, and thus through scripture the Holy Spirit leads us to all truth.
Darth Vader said he would start a thread on this when he returns --
Thanks for the ping!
DarthVader’s thread would be more fitting.
