"Translation and the NRSVue" Spring Community Group
Leader: Pastor Richard
CG Length: March 1st-March 29th
Meets: Zoom Only

The best translation is the one that gets you to read it. In March, Richard is going to be starting a class on “Translation and the NRSVue.” The class will cover topics related to translations in general, but will use the example of the NRSVue to focus on more specifically. We’ll touch on things like the languages we translate from, talk about the kinds of manuscripts we rely on the most, think about the kind of wording we use to translate scripture into, and look at some passages from the NRSVue. We’ll get together on Tuesdays at 2pm over Zoom for five weeks starting on March 1. There’s no book you need to buy for the study.

If you're interested in joining this Community Group, please contact Pastor Richard at revrbuffeumc@gmail.com or by calling the Church at (828) 891-4360
