The Bible — a light for your path
Beth Carey, C.S.
What’s the best translation of the Bible? How do I start reading the Bible? Why are the Gospels different?
These are only a few of the questions Beth answers in this wide-ranging chat. Explaining that the ideas in the Bible began as an oral tradition that was only written down many years later, Beth emphasizes the importance of listening for the “inspired word” of the Bible rather than focusing on the details of whether it should be read in its original Greek and Hebrew or in a particular translation. In response to a question about women in the Bible, she brings out the role that women played in the life of Jesus and his disciples as well as in the early Christian Church. Beth also explains that some of the questions raised in the chat, such as “Is Jesus God?” are ones that scholars have debated for years, and will continue to debate.
