Vol. 49 No. 2 January 10, 2010 From the desk of: Josh Ketchum

Making the Switch to ESV After much consideration and thought I have decided to switch my pri- mary version that I use in my preaching and teaching from NKJV to ESV. The English Standard Version (ESV) is a relatively new version coming onto the Bi- ble scene in 2001. I have been using the ESV the last few months for the series on Revelation and plan on making it my primary version in preaching. I still will use the NKJV some, but primarily the ESV. In my personal study, and sometimes in preaching, I will reference other versions. I try to use a variety of versions and read a text from multiple translations when studying it.

The NKJV is a very good version. But personally after reading the ESV Bible and using their Study Bible the last couple of years I like the more modern language and greater attention to accuracy. The NKJV and the KJV still in many ways are the most reverent and beautiful sounding of the versions, but they are not the most accurate or the most easy to understand. The ESV like the NASV gives attention to properly rendering the verb tenses. The ESV also reads well publicly with clarity, conciseness, and beauty. In my judgment the words it generally uses to convey the original speak well to our modern understanding.

I wanted to let you know this so you could know what version I was read- ing from in my preaching. We still plan on using NKJV for the men reading the Scriptures. Also, let me say that I appreciate the fact that versions of the Bible are not an issue for our church family, as a variety of versions are used by our membership. I certainly am not saying the ESV is a perfect version. I simply feel making the switch will be a positive move for me going into the future.
