Purpose of Articles wanted more Parts of tho Bible
Wo aro so used to seeing tho Blblo wero turned Into English, sometimes
in Its present form and to reading it 'n rhymo that it might bo moro casi-
in tho Ensllsh of our own time that
wo can hardly rcallzo It ever had a
different form. It Is the purposo of
this series of articles to describa somo
of tho changes through which the Bl-
bio has passed In coming to Its pre
sent familiar form.
Name and Contents
Tho word Blblo is tho plural of tho
Greek word for book. The Bible, supposed to have served as a chap
then, is a collection of books, sixty- lain to tho king, Edward III. Ho was

The Formative Process
Tho collection of theso different
books Into ono was the work of many
centuries and tho result ot a process
of careful sifting. It was done by tho
treat councils ot tho Catholic church
at various times. Tho Blblo In Its
present form, with an old testament
and a now and with all tho books as
wo havo them, was not ncceptcd by
tho church at large until about 700
years after tho death of Christ or
about 1.200 years ago. Somo books not
now mciuueu were auuereu to, anu

Translations from Original
Two changes that occurred ln tho
next two centuries mado possible a
further change ln the Bible. One was
the great interest in tho study of
tho ancient languages and tho other
was tho Invention of printing. As a
result ot theso, copies ot tho original
Hebrew and Greek testaments were
printed by scholars llko Erasmus and
others ln Holland and Germany. Soon
men wero properly equipped to make
an English translation from tho orig
inal but no ono had tho courage, as
It would certainly cost bis llfo to do
It. A man at lost aroso equal to this
task and his work will bo tho sub
ject of the next article.
