Rook and the bible translations
I've read many of your posts and seen several of your videos and I noticed that typically you refer off the Revised Standard Version (RSV) but not the more popular New International Version (NIV) or the New American Standard Bible (NASB), the latter considered the most accurate and as close to word-for-word translation available.
What I wanna know is why did you go with what is considered a far more liberal translation? Outside of using a 100% Greek (which isn't practical since most who post here don't know Greek), I would have figured you would have gone with the NASB which has less controversy and, more importantly, follows contextual patterns.
What is faith? Is it to believe that which is evident? No. It is perfectly evident to my mind that there exists a necessary, eternal, supreme, and intelligent being. This is no matter of faith, but of reason. - Voltaire
