The 'bible' from the Greek, 'biblos' meaning book. Yet we are told that the bible is the written word of God, and that not a dot of it shall be changed or altered. Yet for all we are told, the bible is perhaps the most sought after book undergoing translations, and revisions with every turn of the eye. With every revision, there are slight variations. Sometimes those slight variations have changed the meaning of the text itself but most of us do not know it. That is to say, unless we make diligent comparison of the many biblical versions available to us through a number of religous publishers.
