The Bible: Different Interpretations

Which version of the Bible is best?


If you were to click on ‘Bible Gateway,’ an online Bible resource, you would be able to read 40 or more different English versions of the Bible alone. This does not include other versions in other languages. The Bible was originally written in Hebrew and Greek with some Aramaic, but today it has been translated - either all or parts of it - into over 700 different languages.

The most popular web application for the Bible is called "You Version". This has already had over 100 million downloads and is available on phones, iPod and other portable devices.

Christians use the version they prefer reading, with no one version being better than the other. It's just a matter of personal taste.
