Countless Bible translations have surfaced century after century, but not every version made it to the top. Some were surrounded by conspiracy; others were downright changed by their authors. But then there were those that made it after all.
Which begs the question: How do you know which translation is the best, and which ones should you stay away from?
Allen Parr from The Beat goes over common Bible translations and how to pick the best Scripture version.
King James Version (KJV) – Originally authenticated by King James in the year 1611, this long-standing Bible has been trusted by many Christians for centuries. But is it really deemed the only trustworthy translation of them all?
New International Version (NIV) – This modern English translation is among the most popular for its broadly understood terms in plain English. It was originally composed in 1978 and continues to be updated as changes in the English language occur. Do these changes, however, contradict the Bible’s integrity?
Amplified Bible (AMP) – The first edition of the Amplified Bible was written in 1965 and had multiple meanings in each verse published in one text. This was purposed for the reader to study each meaning of the same Scripture passage from the original texts. But are all these different shades difficult to understand, does the overall meaning get lost?
