Holy Bible: how It was written? how to read It?

2Ti_3:16  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is

  • profitable for doctrine,
  • for reproof, for correction,
  • for instruction in righteousness:

The Holy Bible was written by people from all walks of life, men without knowledge of journalism, without multimedia experience, not a graduate of any college degree in mass communication, book writing or screenplay. They were not PhD graduates, nor prominent spokesmen in any well known organization or corporate business entities, or leaders of communities, political analysts, or TV announcers. They rank from different jobs in life like fishermen, tax collector, carpenter, elected as royal subjects, chosen from the lowliest style in life.

A Holy Bible’s writers, not the authors (for as the Lord Christ Jesus and God is the author), divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, thus, the readers must also be divinely inspired.

You need the permission and intervention of the Holy Spirit to understand, to prove and to accept the words written in the Holy Bible.

Without such, you will be liken unto a priest, a pastor, or in the olden times like the sadducees, the scribes and the pharisees, will skip reading the more important passages that are stronger in truth. They will read to their audience, like you, most of the time, that are good to hear, pleasant to your taste and appealing to your way of life.

2Pe_1:21  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Act_4:31  And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

They cannot speak the words of God with boldness. They have the fear that once you understand the Truth of the Lord, you will cease from going to their churches, you will terminate committing the same old traditions of vanities, pretentions and hypocrisies, and they will lose business and no more will they hear the clapping of hands for their personal adorations.

Act_7:51  Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.

These people who alway wanted to be praised in public and those believers who love to hear only what is good and never wants to know the bad things they did, their passions are traditions of their parents and the dogma and doctrines of their churches, without knowing or deliberately resisting the Holy Spirit.

1Co_2:13  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

It is the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit that provides knowledge, wisdom and understanding not the words that were extracted from different books of men written by famous people or publicized in television that entices the hearts of people for the “so good to hear” man’s wisdom. When they speak, they speak quoting other people’s  words and not from the Holy Bible. Even if they quote from the Lord Christ’s verses, they bypass those that belong to the Truth.

2Co_6:6  By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

1Th_1:5  For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

Men and women believed the speakers of various religious denominations for their prominency because they had been exalted by honor of men and not by the power of the Holy Ghost. They, in their churches of hypocrisy exist via the power of wealth, fame and power; moreso, they are politically empowered.

Finally:

1Jn_5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

True christians, not from any religious denominations or organizations that were legally registered, must continue in the manner God has elected them to thread in the Holy Scriptures. Why?

Why So Many Bible Translations?

Why So Many Bible Translations?
By Dr. Dale A. Robbins

For over three hundred years the King James Version, published in 1611, was the prominent translation used in most Protestant churches. However, as the English language continued to change, it became increasingly more difficult for people to understand the Old English vernacular. Faced with the obvious need for our society to understand God’s Word, scholars sought to update the scriptures into more contemporary language.
Dr. Lewis Foster, one of those who helped translate the NIV and the NKJV says, “It is necessary to continue making new translations and revising old ones if people are to read the Word of God in their contemporary languages. With the passage of time, words change in meanings. For instance, in King James’ day the word ‘prevent’ could mean ‘come before’ but not necessarily in a hindering way.

So the translators in that day rendered 1 Thes. 4:15

, ‘For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.’ But today the word ‘prevent’ has lost that earlier meaning (come before), so it must be translated differently to convey the proper meaning: ‘According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not ‘precede’ those who have fallen asleep’ (NIV). …To keep the translation of God’s Word living it must be kept in the living language the people are using.”¹
While new translations have generally been a welcome contribution to the comprehension of scripture, they have also received mixed reactions across the Christian spectrum. One story is told of a pastor who tried to introduce a revised version of the Bible to his rigidly conservative congregation. “So what’s wrong with the King James Version?” said one woman in defense. “In my opinion, if it was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for us!” The amusing irony is that Jesus obviously did not speak the Old English of the King James Version — neither was the Bible originally recorded in English.

Despite the sacred tradition that many revere of the KJV, it is merely a translation of the inspired Word of God, not the initial source. The Old Testament was authored in Hebrew and Aramaic, and the New Testament in Greek. While the original autographs no longer exist, translations are made from ancient manuscript copies, of which there are today at least 24,000

An English version of the Bible did not exist until a little more than 600 years ago. Before then, a version translated into Latin by Jerome in the fourth century, called the Latin Vulgate, was the most widely used Bible translation in the middle ages (the first major book printed on Gutenberg’s press in 1456). Portions of scripture in English began to emerge in the early seventh century, but the first complete English translation was not produced until 1382 by the influence of John Wycliff.

Despite fierce opposition of the Roman church, and absence of the printing press, copies of this work were widely circulated. Later in the 16th century, seven more popular English versions were produced, beginning with William Tyndale’s work in 1525. This English version of the New Testament was the first to be translated directly from the Greek instead of Latin texts. Before Tyndale’s completion of the Old Testament, he was tried as a heretic and executed in 1536. After Tyndale, several other famous Bibles were produced in the 16th century.

The Cloverdale Bible in 1535, Matthew’s Bible in 1537, The Great Bible in 1539, The Geneva Bible in 1560 (the first to use chapters, verses, and the italicization of added words), and the Bishops Bible in 1568.
