The Jerusalem Bible: Reader's Edition
The Jerusalem Bible: Reader's Edition
When it comes to Bible translations, readability and reliability are what count; and on both counts, the original JERUSALEM BIBLE stands alone. A product of the age of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), THE JERUSALEM BIBLE (published in 1966) was the first truly modern Bible for Catholics. Using definitive original language texts such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, biblical scholars of L’Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem produced a meticulously accurate, wonderfully readable French translation of the complete canon of Scripture (La Bible de Jerusalem). From this French original came the English edition, edited by renowned Bible scholar Alexander Jones.

For all the people around the world who are discovering or revisiting the mysteries contained in the Scriptures, only a clear, understandable Bible translation will do. With language as exquisite but more modern than the King James Version, THE JERUSALEM BIBLE is the one they can trust.

TESTIMONY

As is the case with many people the book of the Revelation used to be a complete mystery to me. The way I looked at it, other people had studied the book and I could just ride off of their observations. Why should I bother with studying the book myself when there were so many scholars who had spent lifetimes in the pursuit of the truth of end time events?

Prior to my conversion apocalyptic movies and sermons frightened me more than I can say. I thought about the judgments and the plagues mentioned in the book of Revelation and I feared knowing deep inside of myself that I was on the wrong side of the fence. The way I saw it I would be front row, center at the Great White Throne judgment and God’s fierce countenance would mandate my destiny in the lake of fire.

Then by the grace of Jesus Christ I was saved at the age of twenty-three. I immediately went from one side of the fence to the other and I could see how wrong I had been about God. He was not just some sort of cosmic landlord that would evict me from my life at a whim. God was a loving father who rejoiced over me when I returned from my prodigal ways.

Even though I understood this wonderful difference, still some of this fear about apocalyptic events accompanied me into my Christian walk. I always tried to avoid the book of Revelation during my daily devotional Bible reading focusing more on the books and scriptures that I deemed more “uplifting”. Little did I know how literally uplifting the book of Revelation could be.

I was soon to find out that the carnal mind could never truly understand the Spirit of God. One day I was feeling especially adventurous and set my mind to studying and really understanding the book of Revelation for myself. I started to read it through, but by the time I finished the book I was more confused than ever. I then realized that I had forgotten something very important. I had set my mind to study and I had forgotten to invite the Ruach Spirit of the Living God to study with me. I prayed, “Lord, I really know nothing about the book of Revelation, but it was you who wrote the book and you know it better than anyone. Could you please help me to understand what it is I am reading?” As I sat there for a moment in silent contemplation I abruptly got the answer to my prayer.

The only way I can begin to describe this encounter is that it was as if God had downloaded directly into my spirit a compressed mega-file full of His instructions.

Although God’s instructions were in my spirit my carnal mind still could not grasp the truths contained in this mega-file. There was far too much information for me to process all at once. I once again began to read the Revelation and it was as if slowly piece by piece God started unveiling the gift that He had given me.

One of the first things that God showed me was that the seven seals were opened during the age of the Church, or the age of grace. I give my reasoning for this in chapter six The Seven Seals. All we need to ask ourselves is, “Has this happened yet?”

Another important aspect of the unveiling that God showed me was that there is an order to the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation can and must be studied in the order given by God through His angels. It’s as if God placed an anchor in time when Jesus went to the Father to take His rightful position at the right hand of God. Then God put another anchor in time when the New Jerusalem descends. Strung between these two anchors is a timeline and hanging on this line are the seven seals the seven trumpets and the seven plagues in that order. These events are markers so to speak of where we are on this line of end-time events. This space of time is unknown to us here on the earth and even to Jesus Himself. We do know however that the great tribulation will last seven years and then Jesus will return. After that we know that the millennium will last for one thousand years and then Satan will be finally and forever destroyed in the lake of fire. What we don’t know is how long it will take for the seven seals to be opened by Jesus. We can know generally on this line where we are by once again asking the question, “Has this happened yet?”

Interspersed between these markers are various parenthetical passages. It is important to note exactly where each parenthetical passage lies between the markers. For example, the Great hosts of Christians who are seen in heaven before the throne are seen standing there between the opening of the sixth seal and the seventh seal. This group is the first of three groups of Christians seen in heaven between three different markers and in three different locations in heaven. The second and third group of Christians are seen between the seventh trumpet marker and the first bowl plague marker. The second group is the 144,000 Jewish believers and they are seen on the heavenly Mount Zion prior to the great harvest. These 144,000 Jewish believers had been separated from the rest of the Chri

Ethiopian Monks at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Ethiopian Monks at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre
According to the Bible the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is the place where Jesus’ is buried and of his resurrection. It has been the site of pilgrimages for members of the Christian faith since the 4th Century. Control of the Church is divided among many sects of Christianity including Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox, Egyptian Coptic and Ethiopian Coptic (sorry if I forgot any) under a complex set of arrangements which have been in place for many Centuries. Each sect exercises some territoriality over its ‘part’ of the Church.

While on a trip to Jerusalem and a visit to the Church, I captured this image of three Ethopian Coptic monks guarding the entryway to the portion of the Church they control. The blue wall provides an interesting background and texture for the image. (Unfortunately due to the sunlighting and colors and hue and the need to take the shot quickly so as not to offend the monks I could not expose to get enough contrast to bring up the face of the monk on thr right hand side of the image.)

The New Jerusalem Bible: Standard edition
The New Jerusalem Bible: Standard Edition will satisfy the great need for an authoritative version of “the greatest story ever told” in a package so attractive, user friendly, and affordable, this edition is destined to become a classic. Using the same translation that has been hailed as “truly magnificent” (Journal of Bible Literature), the Standard Edition has a completely redesigned interior, set in a two-column format for easy reading. With all the best features of much more cumbersome and costly versions, this Bible is a must-have for home, church, and school.

In 1956, scholars from L’Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem set their minds to translating the Scriptures from the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts, hoping they could preserve the most sacred Christian traditions and stories. By 1966, the first English-language Jerusalem Bible was published. Since then it has become a favored text for lay readers and scholars alike. The accessible language and richly recounted stories, poetry, and letters in this edition is consistent with previous versions. However, this latest version stands out because of its clear format–clean double columns with easy-to-read type and quick reference headings.
