The Bible in Translation
God's Word Vs. Man's WordsStreaming Video - 2013
How has the Bible been reshaped by its translation across cultures and its reinterpretation for modern consumption? In this outstanding program, Professor Elizabeth Castelli, Dr. Paige Patterson, Rabbi Burton Visotzky, Ph.D., and other experts debate issues such as the effect of the Greco-Roman world on the Bible; the connection between sacred imagery and the Bible's text; translation as heresy; why some newer Bibles are more accurate than the King James version; the use of the Bible to both support and condemn slavery; Amendment 18 versus egalitarianism; patriarchal versus gender-neutral language; the impact of popular culture and new media; and the return from verbal to visual literacy.
