In the second article, The Living Bible (TLB) translation of 2 Corinthians 3:6 concerning the “old way of trying to be saved by keeping the Ten Commandments of God as the biblical way that ends in death” was noted to be erroneous. It was also held that TLB had in fact interpreted the verse instead of merely translating it from Greek to English version, which is an error in itself.
Further, in the third article, it was held that there is no significant difference in the translation of the same verse between the “letter killeth” in King James Version (KJV) and American Standard Version (ASV) and the “written text that brings death” in International Standard Version (ISV). It was concluded that they are substantially the same.
Now, we will proceed to the proposition on how this letter kills or the written text brings death by focusing first on the phrase ‘x x x ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit x x x‘ (2 Corinthians 3:6, KJV) and ‘x x x ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit x x x ‘ (2 Corinthians 3:6, ASV).
Notably, above phrase states the two categories of ministers such as: 1) ministers of the letter and 2) ministers of the spirit. Obviously, a spirit is an entity, so, therefore, the letter is likewise an entity, if you follow (more…)
In Second part of ‘J’ is the biblical letter that kills, we were able to eliminate the “old way of trying to be saved by keeping the Ten Commandments of God” as the biblical way that ends in death in 2 Corinthians 3:6. Thus, ‘The Living Bible’ (TLB) translation has to be set aside, being incorrect.
In this article, we will touch on whether or not there is significant difference in the translation of the same verse between ” the letter killeth” or “the letter that kills” in King James Version (KJV) and American Standard Version (ASV) and the “written text that brings death” in International Standard Version (ISV).
But before doing it, we will preliminarily touch on the meanings of 2 Corinthians 3:6 in KJV, ASV and ISV.
To stress, ASV translation of the verse is substantially the same in KJV, with verse 6 of 2 Corinthians 3 stating as follows:
“6who also made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life“.
Whereas KJV states that:
6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the (more…)
While waiting for disasters to come due to the January 15, 2015 visit of Pope Francis to the Philippines, let’s discuss the proposition that fictitious Jesus, who is being used by the Pope and his Christian cohorts as Christ and God, had originated from the ‘biblical letter ‘J” that kills’ being referred in 2 Corinthians 3:6.
The issue is worth delving into because firstly-there are substantial differences in the English translations of the verse, which also mean that translators can effectively kill the spirit of the words in their respective version.
Secondly-the development of the name ‘Jesus’ is intimately connected to the evolution of letter ‘J’ in the English alphabet, which letter evolved into existence only about 500 years ago, without which, the name would had never existed and may still be Ἰησοῦς (Iēsous) until now, if the alleged Greek translation was sustained.
In short, the letter ‘J’, which can be used as a barometer to identify this biblical ‘letter that kills’, was instrumental in the development of the name ‘Jesus‘ in Jesus Christ. In fact, it is the only name that has this peculiar historical character and background. That being so, the Letter ‘J’ in Jesus Christ’ can be specifically denominated as the ‘letter that kills‘ and consequently, Jesus Christ per se and the Christian bible itself, can be denominated as “the written text that brings death“, (more…)
