What Makes a Translation Accurate?

November 10, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Jim Hamilton answers this question.  He makes a clear argument for the need to produce translations that show the connections between the Old Testament and New Testament.  Read it here.  Because translations don’t always make these connections apparent it is important (if possible) to learn the original languages and see these connections for yourself.  Greg Beale is very helpful at making these linguistic connections in his books. 

For further reflection read Hamilton’s essay on “Biblical Theology and Preaching” where he makes the single most convincing argument (at least in my opinion) of why pastors need to know and read the original languages.  Read it here.
