Christians believe the bible to be the inspired Word of God and it’s content can be trusted (but it may in places can be difficult to understand).
The bible is divided into two sections both made up of several books written by different authors.
The Old Testament -
The New Testament -
The Bible -
The Bible was originally written in several different languages which have been translated over the centuries into many modern languages. At one time it was very dangerous to read the bible in English because it was said that Latin was the only true bible language. People we killed, sometimes burnt alive just for owning a bible in English. Which was not logical because the Latin bible was also a translation from the original text.
So important was it to have the bible in their own language people were willing to take the risk. Even today in some parts of the world people are still killed for owning a bible and believing in it’s contents.
Today we a very fortunate because of discoveries such as the Dead Sea Scrolls and many other finds we are able to read the bible in our every day language based on translations from many very old sources. The amazing things is that these ancient text confirm the accuracy of translations over the ages
These are some of the modern Translations:-
The Good New Bible -
The New International Version -
The Message -
The Authorised Version -
