Epistles of Thomas

February 22, 2008

It must be spring time, new Bible translations are blooming everywhere.

Filed under: Translation — Thomas @ 22:11

I was reading on MetaCatholic today that the folks behind the New Jerusalem translation are producing another updated translation. It will originally be done in French and then translated into Spanish and English. I have never understood the point of this quite frankly. If you want a new English Bible translation at least do it in English, not French 🙂 For those of you who do read French here is Ecole Biblique’s press release. It will, of course, include the Apocrypha but what will make it unique is that it will apparently be laid out to resemble a Jewish Talmudic Bible commentary with notes around the sides of the biblical text. Sounds interesting but not a reason to produce another translation. Sorry folks but I am still working on reading all of those that have been produced already!
