Do we need another translation of the Bible? Chris Seay, pastor of Houston’s Ecclesia Church, believes that The Voice, which applies the practice of acting out roles in the verses, will help remove confusion that the archaic language can cause.
“Steve Taylor, who directed the recent Christian movie “Blue Like Jazz” and also was one of the screenwriters, said the screenplay format makes the Bible stories feel more immediate to him.
“It was like it was happening now, as opposed to reading something that happened 2,000 years ago,” he said. “When Jesus turns the water into wine in John 2, I felt more like I was at the wedding. I felt the awkwardness of the situation.””
What do you think, will this help a new generation translate the stories of the Bible today’s modern-day society?
