The Jubilee Bible, Russell Stendal (Editor) {Preview}

Russell Stendal spent 10 years translating The Jubilee Bible based on the early Bibles of the Reformation. The original text was essentially the same as that used for the King James. The differences are primarily due to two reasons: 1) In the King James translation, committees were used for each section. This led to the use of as many as 13 different English words for just one Hebrew word. The use of synonyms blurs a lot of things and renders the over-all translation less precise. The Jubilee Bible is much more consistent translating the same thing the same way (within the limits of the English language). 2) The early reformers put a different value and meaning on many key passages than had the translators a generation or two later, who had to be politically correct and get the approval of the Church and of the King.
