In this sermon, we examine the Parable of the Ten Virgins and in so doing find that there are those who are going to be ready when the Lord returns to collect His bride, and those who are not going to be ready! Getting ready for the Second Coming of the Lord is not something that we can prepare for when He comes, we must be prepared for when He comes.
May the Lord speak to each one of us on this matter of preparedness.
Knowing the Bible for Yourself (Pt. 3)
In deciding to translate the Bible from one language to another, two questions must lie at the heart of the translation process. #1, Accuracy and #2, Readability. On one hand, one wants a translation that is as accurate and as close to the original languages as possible while at the same time being readable. You may be thinking, why are we discussing Bible translations in a study looking at how to better interpret the Bible? Isn’t the Bible just the Bible? It is, but as will be demonstrated, one can make use of a range of different translations of the Bible in order to make better sense of the Bible.
In this third teaching part, we explore the various translations available to the student of God’s word and the pros and cons of each.
