The New Testament John Drury s clear, marvelously erudite, and richly detailed introduction to the Everyman s Library edition of The New Testament reminds us why the King James Version, first published in 1611, has been the favorite of English readers for centuries Despite a plethora of new translations in the second half of the twentieth century, the King James Version retains its power and appeal because it has the intrinsic value of a classic and is an enduring masterpiece Drury outlines the fascinating history of this magisterial translation, marveling at the patient generosity with which the translators sifted through and distilled a century of previous scholarship He points out that their work has endured not only because of the astonishing care they took to reflect faithfully the syntax of the original Hebrew and Greek which enabled them to dispense with the densely entangled prose style that characterized English writing at the time but also because of their concern to writers from Milton to Coleridge to George Eliot From the doctrinal richness of the letters of St Paul to those four masterpieces of storytelling, the Gospels, The New Testament has served as a source of inspiration for centuries.To quote George Steiner on the centrality of the Bible What you have in hand is not a book It is the book That, of course, is what Bible means It is the book which, not only in Western humanity, defines the concept of a text All our other books, however different in matter or method, relate, be it indirectly, to this book of books All other books are inhabited by the murmur of that distant source.

    I have read through this translation once or twice before It is by Richmond Latti, the noted classicist, and is quite good This time through I read it aloud with Nancy in our morning ingestion of both kinds of caffeine.

    Jesus is peerless but not friendless Indeed a measure of what makes him without peer is the huge number of good and noble people who have aspired and still aspire to friendship with him And whether friend, enemy or simply stranger to Jesus, what an infinite Friend and Advocate every human being has in the peerless only begotten Son of our Father which is in heaven Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be Jesus is peerless but not friendless Indeed a measure of what makes him without peer is the huge number of good and noble people who have aspired and still aspire to friendship with him And whether friend, enemy or simply stranger to Jesus, what an infinite Friend and Advocate every human being has in the peerless only begotten Son of our Father which is in heaven Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive As I near completing yet another rereading of this marvellous compilation of writings of a few who attained friendship with the Master, I am moved by what he said after his resurrection to his beloved disciple John Behold, I stand at the door and knock if any man hear my voice,...

    I m not sure I like what breaking the Bible into the Old and New Testaments to boost my yearly read count says about me.I m also not sure I like Paul very much.

    A zombie invasion, Jesus healing people with spit, prophet slave girls, wizards When you read the bible as literature and not scripture you will notice that the Bible isn t a very Christian book, and you will realize that Christianity in the generations after Jesus was evendiverse than it is to day.The first third of the NT is the gospels, four qu...

    Well, everyone knows the story Conceived by a substance surrounding and exceeding everything and everyone, a child is born into an impoverished family in a barren land Yet three wise travellers know the child to be the one who is awaited and foretold by the prophecy Many years his whereabouts are uncertain, but he does return grown up and with a reputation that precedes him He returns to the capital in a fashion that makes eve...

    This is the first time I ve read the New Testament straight through I started with the gospels and once I finished I was like, what the heck Let s just keep going Reading through the NT, verse by verse, book by book, puts the tenets of Christianity in a whole new light Too many Christians swallow whatever comes from a pulpit and yes, Fox News counts The only way to get the real story the r...
