In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants examine different translations of the Holy Bible.
Invite youth to browse the different translations available of the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures in the Bible. Say that these are only a few of the dozens of translations that exist. Most denominations have favorite translations. It has also been translated into over 2,000 languages. Youth might compare the translations by reading the same verse in different translations. Which do they prefer? Do they like the heightened formality of one version or the easy to read nature of another? What are the implications of the differences in translations for those who believe the Bible is the word of God?
