So I received an interesting reply from a York County pastor today regarding the new Common English Bible. The pastor, who shall remain nameless, said that he is not a fan of any effort to “modernize” or otherwise update the Bible.
This clergyman favors the King James version, which by the way, celebrates its 400th anniversary this year.
But I digress. The Common English Bible was finished this summer after about four years of work by a team of researchers. It is attracting a lot of attention for its efforts to make the Bible more accessible. For example, in the new version, Jesus is no longer the “Son of Man.” He’s “the Human One.”
These and other changes have been written about in many places. Check out this story.
I have my own opinions here, but I am more interested in what do you think. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 771-2024.
