Which Bible should I read?

      The Bible is the written revelation of God, is inspired of God 1 Timothy 3:15-16, without error as to truth, trustworthy, and practical in its applications, 2 Timothy3:15-16. Through reading, meditating, studying, memorizing, applying, and sharing, it God makes possible getting to know Him; learn how we are to live in right relationship to Him; serve Him in this world as we serve others; and foretells events to come.

     The Bible is the record of God’s thoughts, values, perspectives, and will. He teaches us how to live trusting Him, Proverbs 3:5-8. The Bible are the words of God, Psalm 119:11. While the King James Version (KJV) has been very popular from its publication in the 1500’s, and is most majestic in its rendering of the words and truths, it is not as easily understood as more modern versions (New International Version – NIV and the New American Standard Bible - NASB).

     We need to be careful not to assign the words of God to the words of individuals or groups who put into their own words the meaning of the words of God, called paraphrase versions of the Bible. While these individuals and groups may have the best of intentions in translating the words in the original languages of the Bible (Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek) their words may not be word equivalent to the original words God inspired.
