Jim4 Stars Out Of 5LaymanJuly 11, 2020JimI am not a scholar, but in response to the Extraordinarily deceptive edition
post of April 13, 2020, I just read Mark 16 9 through 20 in the NASB word for word translation to English and it clearly states that Jesus appeared to His disciples. Additionally, Luke in Acts 1 verse 3 in the NASB clearly records Jesus appearing in bodily form after His resurrection. The Amplified is a strong, nearly literal translation, and has helped many followers of Christ include myself, build their faith and understanding of the Word of God. Whether intentional or not, the comments made imply that Jesus did not rise from the dead in bodily form, and did not appear to the disciples when He did and it is documented in other verses by other eye witnesses throughout the New Testament.
J. Michael Cozad1 Stars Out Of 5Acts 2:6 changedMay 1, 2020J. Michael CozadQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 1I have an old Amplified bible that doesn't have the addition in Acts 2:6 "in the upper room". This is added or amplified doctrine. No translation that I checked has it. It's not in the original Greek. It also isn't bracketed, italicized, or commented on. For years it's been preached that 120 in the upper room received the Holy Spirit. It doesn't say that in any bible. The Spirit came to a house. Luke called the sanctuary a house in his gospel and he wrote Acts too. It was common to call the house of God "the house". Upper room was mentioned (previously in Luke 22:12 ) and in Acts only when they came back from Jesus going up to Heaven and it wasn't a 120. The 120 was mentioned probably because that formed a counsel and they were choosing a replacement for Judas which was a different day. The day of Pentecost, the house was most likely Solomon's porch. The only place large enough where 120 could be and 3000 to hear and be saved. How about any who weren't saved? Three different days. Upper room, the 120, and Pentecost. Now it could be 120 were there. or the disciples, the women and Jesus's family only like it was stated at the upper room, or many more were there. Maybe over 120. It doesn't say the number. So adding "the upper room" into vs 2:6 is amplifying popular doctrine not the words like my old Amplified bible does. I haven't read much of this bible yet but that was a surprise I wasn't looking for and shouldn't have been there. I'll look for an older version like mine and throw this one out. Or--save it to show people what to look out for. Mine was printed in 1981. God Bless you all!
Mark1 Stars Out Of 5Extraordinarily deceptive editionApril 13, 2020MarkThis is supposedly a trusted edition that gives in-depth insight into the background and meaning of the Bible and passages. It is unconscionable that a Christian organization would be so deceitful as to hide and obscure the truth of certain passages. For example, in most of the notes they are verbose and clear in their descriptions. HOWEVER look how they reference the passages 16:9-20 of the Gospel of Mark. They give cryptic scholarly abbreviations that lay people wouldn't understand: vs 9: "Later mss add vv 9-20" (mss = manuscripts). These passages of Mark were added much later to the gospel to reconcile contradictions to conform to the later evolved resurection theology. Practically all biblical scholars agree these were added later. It has profound implications on the resurrection story since Mark was the earliest gospel written. The earliest Gospel never noted that Jesus in physical form was ever seen by the Apostles or others. Why are they so deceptive?
