In spite of many fine Bible translations the pastor will constantly turn to his Greek New Testament, for no translation can reproduce fully the many fine shades of meaning in the original. A careful study of the original will frequently bring the exact meaning of a text or a word into sharper focus, change wholly or in part the meaning conveyed in the translation, or may even correct a misleading and inadequate translation. A few samples chosen at random will illustrate this.
