Chapter 2: Here we’ll do two things: First another “Did You Know?” segment: the first major project printed on Guttenberg’s famous printing press was a Bible.

Second is this episode’s Bible word: “Testament” (as in Old and New Testaments).  In order to understand that word, we actually have to look at a second word, “covenant.”

Here are the Scriptures referenced in chapter 2:

  • Exodus 34:18
  • Jeremiah 31:31-33
  • Hebrews 8:7, 13

Chapter 3: This episode’s Bible question is “What Bible translation do you use?”  This is a question I’m frequently asked as it seems many people are interested in this business about different translations.  More than just answer the question, I’ll talk a little bit about why there are so many different translations.

I do reference 1 Corinthians 2:10-16 in this segment.

My present translation of choice is the English Standard Version (ESV) with its “essentially literal” translation philosophy.
