Bible Gateway presents the Bible Connection Podcast, where we talk about the Bible and how it connects to every facet of life.
Translating the ancient biblical languages—Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek—into language that can be understood by current readers has been the work of scholars for ages. In this fifth episode of the Bible Connection Podcast, Drs. W. Hall Harris and Daniel B. Wallace talk about how and why they started a new translation, the New English Translation (NET) of the Bible in the 1990s. Along the way, they reveal some of the challenges translators have faced as they, like many before, have worked carefully to accurately convey the Word of God.
