A lot of Christian blogs and web sites feature a page called “What is the best Bible?” Usually, after a brief explanation of the various translation processes and nary a word about the original manuscripts, they present a few random verses from all the Bibles, and come to no conclusions whatsoever. So I thought I’d, in the interests of fairness, do the same!
The Doctrine of the Trinity – Father Son & Holy Spirit
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 1 John 5:7 (KJV)
7 So we have these three witnesses 1 John 5:7 (NLT)
For there are three that testify: (1 John 5:7, HCSB)
For there are three that testify, (1 John 5:7, NET)
And the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is true. (1 John 5:7 BBE)
For there are three that testify: (1 John 5:7 ESV)
And the Spirit is the witness, because the Spirit is the truth. (1 John 5:7 RSV)
There you go. Which version do you like best? And, which one is the most accurate?
