It has been a minute since I posted so I thought it would be a perfect time to show of the knew bible I have been gleaning scripture from. Give a little insight to it and offer my personal reasons for picking it up.
In short the reason I wanted a bible with out LORD was because while I see no wrong in calling the father Lord I do believe that it has a deeper impact when you read that the father just as the son had a name. Names denote many different things to different people. A friend can call you by a first name, a nick name. In the military the call you by your rank and last name, you call your superior by their appropriate title and rank. When Jesus was on earth he was called Rabbi, teacher, master but he was the first to call us friend. I fully believe whatever name the father and son comes to you, you are his friend if indeed you place salvation in Yeshua the Messiah, or commonly Jesus Christ. There will always be debating over who has the right name. To me it’s better that you know the father by his works and the son by his sacrifice as he knows us by his work through us or our works done apart from him if we don’t know him.
The ability given to man has no bounds of wickedness through disobedience to God by the knowledge of good and evil. For this God saw fit to take away the one language of man and reach out to each person individually in their own language. I say all of this for reference to the discussion of what names are given to us are not important but the friendship that has been extended to us.
I really like this bible, it gives greater insight to those seeking a deeper relationship. I do like the Strong’s in the back and the name Yahweh for the father, and Yahshua for the son. Also in place of God, he is referred to as El, elohim, what ever the original text had for it giving better context.
The only thing I disagree with is the theological foot notes. I do like understanding other churches point of view but we all have to search the scriptures for ourselves. That said as with the commentary in my old kjv they themselves had their own bias. That is why we read for ourselves to show ourselves approved to our father in heaven. As the son has said not to judge one day he will remove the wheat from the chaff and we will be as one again for the glory of his name amen.
