An accurate translation of what? In trying to answer that question, think specifically: a translation of what manuscript, or codex? If you cannot answer that, then. George M. Lamsa’s translation from the Aramaic of the Peshitta is not a new Bible but a new translation of distinction. He has eliminated errors that crept in. The Lamsa Bible is not Christian at all. It is Lamsa’s own blend of occultic ideas made to look a lot like the King James Bible.

Speaks to the heart and soul. My favorite Bible translation. It’s the clearest, purest, most direct translation of the original Hebrew and Aramaic. It really speaks to my heart. The meaning in this Bible is so crystal Leather Bound Verified Purchase.
This is easily the most beautiful book I own. The image doesn’t really do it justice. The dark, deep, blue leather goes perfectly with the bbile ornate golden designs on the front and back. These designs really pop in person. The pages are edged in a deep gold and it has a satin pagemarker. This edition also contains, I believe, all of Gustave Dore’s incredible biblical plate illustrations lasma could stand on their own.
If you are searching for a Bible that attempts to respect the contents lzmsa by quality of appearance and construction, you can’t go wrong with this one from Barnes and Noble.
George Lamsa Translation of the Peshitta – Read the Bible
Product description did not decribe the size of the text The lettering is way too small to read in the paperback version Just so you know it was originally in the KJV! This review by Stan. In this edition of the King James bible there is a publishers preface of 8 pages just before lamwa Apocrypha section, which is sandwiched between the old and new testament.
I quote from page 4 ” This translation, commonly called the “Septuagint,” was the Bible of Greek-speaking Jews in Egypt in two centuries before Christ and later became the Bible of the Jews of the Diaspora and of the early Christians It points out, the Apocrypha was in the bible well before Jesus was. I quote from page 5 of the preface to the Apocrypha, “The earliest known translations of the whole Bible into English are associated with John Wycliffe or Wyclif and his followers.
These are usually dated between and Because the Wycliffite Bible was translated from the Latin Vulgate, it includes the books of both the Testaments and the Appendix. So from the beginning, the English Bible was translated with the Apocrypha. Lamsq 7 of the preface shows a listing of the books of the Bible, and shows the books we now call the Apocrypha and Deuterocanonical dispersed among the books of the old testament, not separated out.
The Wikipedia entry of the Septuagint also shows the books of the Apocrypha dispersed throughout what we now call the old testament. So, the Apocrypha was in the bible years before Jesus, and was therefore most likely in the bible Jesus and the apostles used oamsa quoted from. It was the bible of the first Christian church. I prefer to read a bible as close to what Jesus and the apostles used as I can.
I would suggest reading the Septuagint in addition to the KJV. The Apostles Bible is a good version which I have read and own. I have had a few treasured study bibles over the years, but I discovered this one quite by accident recently. They are both excellent bibles. You are not so much as buying a “study” bible with notes at the bottom of the pages, etc.
If you are only able to find one version, either expanded or not expanded Old Time Gospel Hour either will be an excellent choice. I included a photo in my review of the expanded bible version on top and the regular open bible on bottom, ,showing how the First book of Kings is laid out in each version. It is not that one is “better” than the other, it is just that they are different and both are very good.
Both have outlines, charts such as monies, weights and measures if not the same in some cases, have not checked word for word but look similar to an old Nelson King James study bible I have the one that is formally known as the Liberty Annotated study edition The expanded edition has the notes and a chart on two pages and the outline on the following page. The regular open bible has it on 2 pages only.
I will say that the font seems ever so slightly larger in the regular open bible, too. I have also included Titus as well and included a few pics of the visual survey of the bible section. The cyclopedic index alone is worth the price of the bible. It is absolutely fantastic. If you want a bible for serious bible study, you can’t go wrong with this version. You don’t have to worry about if this bible is true to God’s word or not.
I am leery of some modern versions. I had a seller send a regular Holy Bible instead of this version, so that involved more time to find another copy elsewhere. Imitation Leather Verified Purchase. This is a lovely and rewarding Bible. As the regular old King James Version was the one I read after I converted, I have been searching since for something which preserves the beauty of this language in a slightly updated version.
This NKJV does this with grace and style. I heartily recommend this for anyone who is looking for a translation which will sing. I give this bible 5 stars cause it exposes that the bible has been tampered with All bible believers must have this bible in their collection See all 6, reviews.
