Bible Version and Translator Questions
Below are some questions I am currently researching for the upcoming successor to the Bible Version Encyclopedia. Please take a few minutes and look over these questions. If you believe you have an answer, simply click on the link following the question. Please included any web or bibliographic references. If you can provide scans for Bible text differences it would be a great help. Thank you for your time and effort! May God bless you!
Several questions have been answered recently. I thank you for your time and expertise!
