    Hello all,

    Spent a few years studying this issue of translation.

    The Bible means “book of books.”

    The Apostle Paul quoted the Hebrew Bible in his speech to the Jews while being captured in Jerusalem. “Old” and “New” Testament Scriptures were used and circulated throughout the 1st Century community we know by internal references in Apostle Paul’s letters.

    In the 5th Century, the Catholic Pope ordered Jerome, a monk to translate the Bible into Latin which become the “Latin Vulgate’ The “official bible” of Roman Catholic Church. Jerome used the Septugiant for his Old Testament source, which included Deutrocannocical books that were rejected by most Jewish rabbis.

    It should be noted that many Christians communities existed outside the Roman Catholic Church.

    Greatest translation of the Bible is considered to be the King James Bible or Authorized Version as known in the United Kingdom.

      I agree with you because Roman catholics are not true Christians. Roman catholicism was formed when emporer Constantine tried to suppressed Christianity and failed. so Christianity grew instead, so he dicided to merge its believe systems with it like the Rocicrucians. Roman Catholicism is based on ancient mystic religion founded in Egyp, Sumeria and Babylon.

        The Catholics are the original Christians, every other Christian sect branched out from them. All Catholics are Christians, not all Christians are Catholic!

        Please,

        This is not about religion, It’s about the Jesus essence teaching and Historical facts,

        As per Josefo, contemporary Jesus Historian, the follower of Jesus wasn’t call Cristian, just followers of Jesus,

        I would appreciate if you can study deeper, you can appreciated more the message of Jesus and his propose to died and connect us with our Eternal God.

      how stupid protestants are. The kjv is the “greatest translation” of the bible? How about the rest of the planet that doesn’t speak English? How about the Latin translation used for millenia from the original languages? What of the Greek? How about the Syriac Pesheeto?

      The KJV is a relatively new version, poorly translated, although using nice English phrasing and parsing.

        You are reading the correct bible. Keep reading it and you will find all truth in those pages. But more than anything you need to be baptized by the Holy Spirit so you can understand the word because you need revelation from God through the Holy Spirit. Religion is not the answer Christ is the answer and the only way of salvation.

        My dear brothers, i beg you all that please don’t fight for which is the best book but please follow the commandments of ALMIGHTY and the teachings of JESUS CHRIST.

        Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
        For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
        GOD bless you all.

      Its clearly said that the Christian Bible was the original.Its God’s word that he watched over and protected while being written,

      its also known (as stated above) catholics added on books after the 4th century. Well the Origianl,,, clearly says (infact its dangerous… false teaching if you will,,)do not alter, take away or perverse Gods word. Well its plain and simple, they altered it… They added to it!!! The bible was written perfectly, just as the Lord is. The bible can NOT lie. The Holy Bible is how it is suppose to be… not .. well … I think I should add this to benefit me and my followers. That was a bad and DANGEROUS decision.

        the old testament was actually taken from the Jewish Torah…. so Christians actually added to the bible by adding the new testament. don’t believe me, google it.

    The article says “The Christian Bible, or The Holy Bible, underwent canonization”. This idea of saying the Christian Bible vs the Catholic Bible is nonsense. They are one & the same. The Canonization including the selection of inspired books for the New Testament was done by the Catholic Church at the Council of Hippo & the final Canon was approved by the Pope at the time in the 4th century. The only reason that Protestants know which books belong in the Bible is because of the Catholic Church. The only difference with the Protestant Bible is that Martin Luther removed the 7 books from the Old Testament that he didn’t agree with. He also wanted to remove several books from the New Testament including James & Revelation. The Catholic Bible is the Holy Bible just as much as is the centuries later Protestant Bible. The only difference is the 7 OT deuterocanonical books which Protestants reject. To be honest the article should distinguish between Catholic & Protestant NOT Catholic & Christian as Catholics are just as much Christians as Protestants (The Protestors). In fact Catholics were the first Christians in existence for 1500 years before the protestant revolt.
