Segment #1: Krista and Monique Discuss the Various Bible Translations

Krista and Monique went on a deep dive into Bible translations and answered these important questions:

  • Why are there so many different translations?

  • Is it even okay that the Bible has been translated or should we be reading it in the original languages it was written in?

  • The million dollar question: Which translation is the best? (Spoiler alert: it depends!)

  • What are the general types of translations? For instance, word-for-word, thought-for-thought, paraphrase.

  • Considering the types of translations, which approach is better?

  • What is a concordance and is it necessary to have one?

  • What about study Bibles?

In summary, the great dilemma of which Bible translation to choose boils down to two issues: accuracy vs readability.
