Lies in the Bible

Are there lies in the bible?  Yes: the Bible records lies told by men.  Some of these lies are not only found in the text, but in the preface.  Here is a picture of an RSV that I found in my local public library; pay attention to the first paragraph.  Here are a few questions to think about:

  • Who authorized the revision of the ASV?  Better yet, who authorized the ASV itself?  Even better, who authorized the revision of the Authorized Bible?  A king?  The Body of Christ? Or Romans 1:22 scholars?
  • Why has the ASV been revised so many times? ASV has been revised by the RSV which was revised by the NRSV (which also comes with a Catholic Edition).  The ASV has also been revised by the NASV.  The ESV is a revision of the RSV which is a revision of the ASV.  Confused?  So am I.
