Sunday, February 20, at 11:00 a.m. - IT SOUNDS LIKE SCRIPTURE TO ME: THE KING JAMES BIBLE AFTER FOUR CENTURIES - The most familiar version of the Bible in English—the King James, or Authorized Version—was published in 1611 after a rigorous process of translation and editing under the guidance of a group of scholars who came to be called "God's secretaries." Although its language is increasingly difficult to understand, it is still the translation that "sounds like scripture" to our ears and it remains favoured as the "authentic" Bible in most people's estimation. We will celebrate the poetry of the King James Version while learning about its origins and its limitations. Rev. Stefan Jonasson will preach.
