Must-See Video on the ESV Translation Committee

The Internet lets the whole world into doors that are otherwise of necessity locked. Check out this video of the ESV translators arguing (courteously but firmly) over the rendering of δούλος in 1 Cor 7.

Incidentally, somebody paid to have all those busy scholars flown to England and housed around Tyndale House. That’s why I view copyrights on Bibles as a good thing: the laborer is worthy of his hire. We should not expect fellow Christians to give us their labors for free.
