The Removing Cultural Blinders- Just Words our podcast discuss the bridge that we need to build to better understand the Bible.   

In the book Misreading Scripture Through Western Eyes, we at the Bible and Coffee Podcast have had to view certain stories from a whole different perspective as we understand Bible Translations. 

How do I understand the Bible?

 Taking a course in Hebrew or Greek is not for everyone.  Who has time for that just to understand the Bible?  It is not about learning Greek or Hebrew to understand but there are a variety of translations that help us understand the text.  

Translators have different goals. While some follow the grammar and syntax of the original language as faithfully as they can.  Other translators are more concerned with the text being readable to the contemporary ear.   

While this may all be difficult to digest. We have often preached that it is easy to understand the Bible.  We still stand by our statement.  It is… God’s love for you reads the same in every language.  

We at the Bible and Coffee Podcast have found the NET Bible.  This Bible has most translations available in the notes as well as the reason certain translations were worded the way they are within the translation.

We have found it very valuable in our study of God’s word and helping us to understand the true meaning of the words that are written by inspired writers of the Bible.
