BIBLE TRANSLATIONS


Joseph Bryant Rotherham  The Emphasized Bible.  The Emphasized Bible is one of the most innovative and thoroughly researched translations ever done by a single individual. Its presentation of emphases and grammatical features of the original language still reward careful study.  “A strictly literal rendering may not be so pleasant to the ear as one where the apparent sense is chiefly aimed at, yet it is not euphony but truth that ought to be sought. There are tens of thousands departures from the original text in the current versions. The Rotherham Emphasized Bible is the World’s best English translation of the Hebrew and Greek text, and the most Poetic.


The World English Bible.   Public Domain.  The translation method of the World English Bible is primarily that of formal equivalence (word for word), and is based on the 1901 American Standard Version, the Greek Majority Text, and the Hebrew Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia.

What is Gnosticism?  Dr. Richard John Neuhaus says: “Modern Day gnosticism is the natural religion of Americans, including American Christians…Feel-good religion and spiritiural pills to elevate our consciousness and enhance our sense of comfort with our presumably ‘real selves - these are American specialities of long standing.”

Gnosticism is the most pervasive and popular alternatives to Christianity.
