Dec 13, 2016If sacred scripture is important to you then this book will be one of the greatest eye openers you can provide yourself or another Christian friend. Christians everywhere and of every conceivable background would agree on the necessity of having an accurate and full rendering of inspired Old Testament texts. "Which Bible Is Better", may initially shock you, but as you consider what it has to say and what it reveals, that surprise will turn into curiosity and that curiosity will lead you to the bible Jesus and his Apostles quoted. I encourage and challenge all Christians to read this important work. It will enlighten and bless you. I have personally ordered dozens of them. Just order one and see what happens.
Feb 21, 2015Fr. Joseph gave me a copy of the book to look at, and I have to say that I'm pretty shocked. I had heard that the New Testament matched with the Septuagint reading in most cases, but I didn't know to what degree certain portions of the Masoretic text were changed. He even shows how God was completely removed from the Masoretic version of the book of Esther. I'm hoping for a similar book by someone in the future to show the difference between the Byzantine Greek New Testament and other New Testament manuscripts. We're in need of accurate Bibles in the West.
Nov 17, 2014There is no question that the Septuagint and its modern translations are closest to the original. The versions that have been used for centuries in Europe and the US have been translations from the Latin Vulgate translation. The Septuagint was translated from whatever Hebrew versions existed in the 2nd century BC, before Christ was born, for the use of the Hellenized Jews. The books that made up the Hebrew bible were copied many times over the centuries, and multiple variations exist in a number of books. The Septuagint later became part of the Christian bible, and is still used in the original translation in Greece. In many places the contemporary Hebrew bible differs from the Greek translation that was to be the word of God. (The dead sea scrolls included books with related variations.) During the Christian era, Latin and old English translations created new variations, and during the protestant reformation a number of books were deleted. So if someone looks for some references by... More > Paul to psalms and Maccabees, they can't be found in the protestant bible. This book gets 4 stars because it tells a relatively straightforward story in a rather confusing manner. And it also includes a tinge of a nasty trait of orthodox Christianity: anti-Semitism. The author bypasses the reasons for the variations in the Jewish bible and accuses the Jews of changing it due to anti-Christian biases. Ironically, the existence of the Septuagint started the quarrels between the Greek-speaking first Christians and those who wanted to remain Jews. Centuries later these resulted in pogroms in Russia and an abiding distrust among Greeks. It would be nice if after 20 centuries, this antagonism ended.< Less
