Well, I took my honors at university in English literature,
Shakespeare being my major. I had to study in depth 37 of his
books, though there has been some debate as to whether he actually
wrote all 37 books himself, Sir Christopher Marlowe being one of
the candidates believed to have written at least two of them.
William Tyndale who translated the bible into english wrote it in
the then english vernacular which was reflected in the
Shakespearean plays, The official bibles in english churches then
being written and read in Latin, and french for the royal court,
so the King James translation had nothing to do with the council
of Constantinople in 381 AD. Rather it was Wiliam Tyndale's idea
to bring the bible to the masses.

It’s certainly the most “literary” – very easy
to read if you are inspired by that kind of “poetic” prose.
It flows, has rhythm, cadence. I care more about that than
belief – I do not believe it is more than a powerfully
historically important book, and well, one that is not read
by most people in its original language or even content
(which was decided by a council in 300 something AD)…
Perhaps I have been brought up on Shakespeare, and perhaps i
am still Old School in some of my ways, but the best english
bible to me is still the King James version. Verily Verily! I
say Cheers unto ye!

Optasia has almost all of the
translations so call Tom and get that started.
And, no, you are not stupid.
And Tom can also guide you further when
will try that one. The message Bible... I
think that if I can get a jump start, my brain
will catch up. Thanks so much all. Andy

if you wan't a simple
translation try "the message bible." it puts modern
language to the scriptures.

Andy, You are not
stupid. The first time that I tried to read
the scriptures, it was gobledegook to me
also. Especially the King James version.
It wasn’t until someone explained the Gospel
to me and I believed that the Bible began to
make since to me.
Love in Christ
For our struggle is not against flesh and
blood, but against the rulers, against the
powers, against the world forces of this
darkness, against the spiritual forces of
wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so
that you will be able to resist in the evil
day, and having done everything, to stand

Hi, there are plenty
of audible bibles out there but, I
think that I am just stupid as I
just can’t understand much of the
scriptures...it doesn’t make any
sense to me. Andy
