Bible (Soft Bonded Leather Cover)
- Item #: 00002
- Condition: New
Over the centuries, many attempts have been made to render the inspired texts of the Old and New Testaments into the vernacular. The King James Version and the American Standard, 1901, are two of the most prominent and widely used English translations. The translators of the American Standard Version felt a need to use an attempted transliteration of the Tetragrammaton, but opted for the familiar form Jehovah instead of the accurate rendering Yahweh. Also, they did not attempt to use the correct Name of the Savior Yahshua.
The Sacred Scriptures, Bethel Edition, features include: Restoration of the Sacred Name and the sacred titles to the English text of the Old Testament, as well as returning the Name of Yahshua the Messiah, our Redeemer, to the text of the New Testament, and elimination of Shakespearean English, which is no longer employed in modern usage.
We have tried to be faithful in rendering the original texts (as closely as we can return to them) and maintaining the strict majesty of expression as befits the Word of our Heavenly Father Yahweh and His Son, Yahshua the Messiah. We have not resorted to the modern, corrupt slang common in American English. While striving to make the text of the Bible more understandable for the modern reader, the majesty with which the Bible was written was not sacrificed, emphasizing our need to think of the Heavenly Father and Messiah on a higher level.
