Sermon:   The Language of God

Theme:  Though the bible is made up of Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic it is unified by the one relationship with God through the Holy Spirit.

Purpose:  To understand what makes the differences in the language of the bible.

Scriptures:  Ephesians 2:11-22  God has broken down the divisions and brought all people together in relationship through Christ.

                   Mark 6:30-34, 53-56  Jesus and the disciples are followed by crowds hungering to hear their message.

Questions: Why do some translations of the bible seem to sound very different from others? Is there are a right or a best translation? What are the languages of the bible? In what ways do we have misinterpretation of the bible? Can we be sure that what we read is really from God? How do we make sense of what is written in the bible if we don’t have the languages or skills to know the background?
