Comments: New translation of Bible changes names, content

I was wondering who was "Bullwinkle."

I'm more of a King James or a New Jerusalem Bible person.

The only Bullwinkle I could think of was Samson (played by Sly Stallone of course).

And I'm more of a RSV, Apocrypha included, kind of person.

Michael, it seems you and I are on the same wavelength this morning. I blogged about this as well, although I missed the 'Rocky-Stallone' parallel.

Very smooth.:)

Nothing is sacred anymore.

OT: Nice new banner, Mr King.

King James, red letter, black leather cover, zipper with the cross on the zipper.

Although I can stand the RSV.

NIV, KJV, or NKJV. I preferred Red Letters.

But for more indepth study...the Amplified Bible is Hot.

For me, NKJV or NIV. My favorite Bible with my notes scribbled in the margins is a MacArthur Study Bible, NKJV, hardbound. My NIV is for reference when I want to see another rendering of the text.

I've got a NKJV that I carry and use to study with; She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed has a NIV Study Bible that I gave her a few years ago. At church, the scripture readings during the service are from either the RSV or NIV (I can never remember which - though I think it's the RSV).

My mom and dad gave Mitchell & Jasmine Bibles this spring when we started going back to church regularly; Jasmine's is Zondervan's Teen Bible, which (if memory serves) is a RSV, and Mitchell's is a "Bible for Boys," (complete with articles about all the "cool stuff" in the Bible, like "the grossest things people ate" [rolling eyes] -- I guess anything within reason to get younger kids interested in the Word) from Zondervan, and it's definitely an RSV edition.

I'd like to get my hands on a RSV study bible so that I don't have to glom onto Rachel's when I want to compare and contrast the texts.

Ah, well...a step at a time...

Those new verses are a parody or a joke, right? Hard to be sure these days.

Ten to one the rewritten Annunciation reads, "Congratulations! It's a boy!"
