SUMMARY And God Said

READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ And God Said Of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament that uotes from it Sometimes the familiar English is just misleading Other times the mistakes are substantial But the errors are widespread This book tackles such issues as what's wrong with the Ten Commandments starting with the word commandments the correct description of the virgin birth and the surprisingly modern message in the Song of Solo. In this book Hoffman a translator and biblical scholar with a PhD in linguistics makes a convincing case that most English versions of the Bible are riddled with mistranslations which afflicts modern readers with misunderstandings about what the Bible really says As the book begins Hoffman reminds us that the ancient Hebrew texts contain many words whose meanings aren t certain He then points out a number of mistaken ways in which the na ve translators have decided on their meanings For example trying to translate compound words and phrases by analyzing their parts doesn t work Burn up and burn down don t have opposite meanings and though ice cream trucks deliver ice cream fire trucks don t deliver fire Another example A word s etymology what it meant long before a text was written doesn t tell us what it meant when the text was w
