Why does the Bible have different versions? πŸ€”πŸ’­βœοΈ


Ecclesiastes 3:1- “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.”

How to apply this Bible Verse to your life today! βœ…

Know today things really do come in seasons and seasons also pass. You may be in a season of waiting one moment and in a season of blessings the next. A season of trials one moment and a season of peace the next.

Remember every season has a purpose whether it is to strengthen our weaknesses, strengthen our faith, to grow with God, to turn our suffering into something good and to glorify God.

Remember today whatever season you are in it’s exactly where you need to be and God will move to the next season when the time is right. Trust in Gods timing.

Especially when you are at the beginning of your journey with God which version of the Bible to read can be really confusing.

The language has been modernized

Why is there is different versions of the Bible, well the language has been updated/made more modern making it easier to understand.

For example in the King James Version Hebrews 2:17 it says:

“Why in all things it behooved him to be made like to his brothers”

And in the updated New International Version Hebrews 2:17 it says:

“For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way”

As you can see in these examples, both sentences have the same meaning, the meaning of the verse has not been changed the language has simply been updated to modern language to make it easier to understand. The older versions will use words like ‘thy’ whereas the newer versions use ‘the’.

Some people prefer to read the original older language and some people find the updated modern language easier to understand and there is no right or wrong here. This is merely personal preference.

As the language in each version is different in terms of being modern each Bible version also has a different reading level which lets you know the reading difficulty.
