posted by Scot McKnight

We began a series, which will have new posts sporadically rather than consistently, not long ago about Translation and the tribalism that we now experience with translations. One of our points is that the authoritative text is not the translation […]

Translation Tribalism 2

posted by Scot McKnight

Translations are now officially and unofficially connected to tribes, and it is not a little bit humorous and also at times quite sad.  Sometimes it sounds like culture wars, and that is sad. Today I want to make one point, […]
