As Christmas is around the corner, we feel to speak about the Bible as well, so we have come up with the latest article of Insider monkey – the best unbiased, most literal and trusted Bible translation in circulation. The Christian Holly Bible has two parts, the Old Testament, and the New Testament. The Old Testament was written in Hebrew and somewhere in Aramaic, while the New Testament was written in Biblical (Koine) Greek. Biblical (Koine) Greek is not the same as the classical Greek, it’s much simpler and easier. The first uniform translation was the Vulgata in Latin, in the fifth century. Later on when the demand for Bible translations in mother tongue rose, Vulgata was translated into several languages. But the problem was that they were re-translations, I mean at first the Bible was translated into Latin, and from Latin into the mother tongue of different nationalities. Consequently these translations were not accurate. When Reformation had the demand for translations from the original languages, scholars began to translate it from Hebrew and Koine Greek. The King james Version was the first one in English language.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of best unbiased, most literal and trusted Bible translation in circulation from their list.
The first one is the American Standard Version (AMV). This translation of the Bible, of which the complete translation of both Testaments was released in 1901, and is greatly used in the United States. It also became the basis of multiple other translations, two of which make their way on our list. The second Bible translation on our list now is King James Version (KJV). The oldest and probably the most famous translation on our list of the best unbiased, most literal and trusted Bible translation in circulation, the King James Version was released in the early 17th century. It is rigorously done but contains a few minor mistranslations. At last, but not least we are mentioning New King James Version (NKJV). This updated version of the original preserves the literary significance of the King James version, but has brought the archaic language up-to-date and has greater historical accuracy.
