Another Urban Legend
Recently I have heard many people say something about scripture that is not true. They seem to believe that the current modern translations are not from the original languages, that they are depending the Latin Vulgate and then the King James Version and what we have now are rewording of earlier English translations. Of course this is NOT true. While other ancient translations and modern translation are helpful in understanding how others understood scripture, the modern translation use the original language text as what they are translating. I find it strange and somewhat amusing that this falsehood would be oft repeated in casual conversation.
