Where the world comes to study the Bible

What should we do if we find that different Bible translations actually contradict?

Some versions of the Bible are more interpretive than others, and this is usually done to simplify the reading. One translation may sound very different from other translations, when in actuality, they are generally saying the same thing. This is basically true for all the major translations, though slight differences do exist. This is why it is helpful to study more than one translation if one does not know the original Hebrew or Greek. Even then it is helpful to see how other scholars have viewed the text.

We must realize that our translations are just that
