  11. 11. The Bible: Inspired & Inerrant Inspired- Bible inspiration comes from God. It is the move and influence of His Spirit upon specific men chosen to speak and record His words to us. These recorded writings are called the Scriptures (2 Tim 3:16, 2 Pet 1:20-21). Inerrant- Because the Bible is inspired, it is incapable of error. Every figure and event is a historical fact, and every testimony and command truthful.
  12. 12. Translation Process of the Bible When God moved upon the writers of scripture, He guided them with His exact words and thoughts concerning His will and purpose for humanity and its future. God used their personality and style to express His Word to the people and their circumstances of that time while also speaking to future generations (Rom 15:4).
  13. 13. The Bible: Translations Translation- A version of an original composition. A writing taken out of its original language and composed in another. There are three types of Bible translations upon which all translations are specifically based: Formal Equivalence, Dynamic Equivalence and Optimal Equivalence.
  14. 14. Types of Translations: Formal This version is a word-for- word translation of the Scriptures from its original languages. It seeks to compose the writings using the exact words found in the manuscripts without obscuring the meaning. An example of this type is the King James version.
  15. 15. Types of Translations: Dynamic This type of translation does not seek to match the exact wording found in the manuscripts but their meanings. It is a paraphrase of wording. Most paraphrased Bibles are based on this approach to some degree. An example of this type is the Message.
  16. 16. Types of Translations: Optimal This translation combines the processes of both Formal and Dynamic Equivalences. While retaining what was actually recorded from the manuscripts, the scriptures are presented in a way that seeks to add understanding to the text. An example of this translation is the New International Version.
