Christianity is a religion Jesus Christ of Nazareth brought to the Jewish people in Israel, but the Jewish race did not welcome him, and he added the gentiles to also benefit. Christians have a book called the Holy Bible and it is this book that they adore and reverenced than anything in the globe, they read that book daily for their personal nourishment. The Holy Bible was written in Greek, Latin and Latin originally and that was what the early Christians were using for their prayers and the worship of God. These three languages mentioned namely, Greek, Latin and Hebrew were later translated into English and several other languages. In English language the versions are the King James version, the Amplified version, the New Living Translation version and still counting.
The amplified bible was written by the Americans by Zondervan and Lockman Foundation, the idea is to amplify the Bible, the special thing about it is that there added wording to the original text and this makes that more clear and understanding. All Bible translations has got their weakness including the amplified version of the Holy Bible but they are still very helpful. Many have found out that they appreciate or hate that, you may complain of the amplification, beyond that, there is nothing wrong with that. This amplifies Bible has accurate translations and persons must be treated as such by individuals who will like to use the Bible. Amplified bible adds meaning to the original Bible and put that into a context that its reader would understand and make sure that the reader appreciate what they are reading. They provide some equality of Greek and Hebrew, word for word, open and amplifies that would have been hidden if that was the other version of the Holy Bible.
This brand of the Holy Bible can use as a good device for the study of the Holy Bible since they have different meanings to a single text of scripture given, this also opens your eyes in the scripture. You see the text of the been translated into many synonyms and that provides an opportunity for we all to know and learn easily. Persons will testify to the fact that the King James brand of the Holy Bible is complex because of the use of old words in the English language. For example, the use of thou, art, thee, thine, thy, whence and so on makes the reading of the bible difficult since that is no longer use in contemporary English and now old fashion. So, young ones do not easily read the King James brand and understand unless they use the amplified brand which is more correct and understanding. Sunday school now use the amplified brand more than any other type of the Bible, this is because the English is clear for them to know what is written.
Some doubt the accuracy of the amplified type of Bible but the good news is that those don’t like that type are less and so the type is better to use. Millions of men and women of God have used the type and have not complained or raise any issue against the amplified type of the Holy Bible. Research was conducted in a certain big church in the United States Of America concerning the type of Bible the church members were using. That research reveals that most of the members were using the amplified type of Bible, in fact, the research showed that about 65% of them who were using the amplified type of the Bible. The participant’s response was that the amplified type was much more simple to use than the competing types of the bible, they added that it was accurate as well. In fact, using it you don’t even need a dictionary to interpret it for you since it already simplified.
The write-up is by no means underrating any type of the Holy Bible, what is only discussed is its ability to provide certain help and how accurate the book is. This feature of course is not found or inherent in any book apart from the amplified type of the Holy bible. Another relevance of that book is that kids can use it and get a better understanding of the text been read.
