The First Testament

With John Goldingay

Bible translations, and there are multitudes of them available today, attempt to bring a book written years ago in a strange language, into the context of our modern world so that we can understand its message. But the new translation by John Goldingay, The First Testament (InterVarsity Press), moves in the opposite direction. It attempts to drag us back into that biblical world so that we can understand it in its context. That’s how I would describe it, anyway. In this interview, John describes the importance of a word-for-word Bible translation and how he treated some of the words in a few of the more familiar passages of the Old Testament.
