What I Have Learned About Greek & Bible Translation Since Joining the CBT

by Dr. Bill Mounce

“This paper chronicles parts of my journey from being a first-year Greek teacher and author, to a translator of a formal equivalent translation (ESV), and on to my translation work on a functional equivalent translation (NIV). I am thankful for what I have learned at every stage of the journey, and for the fellow translators who have helped me along the way. I trust that my journey is taking me closer to knowing how to convey the meaning of the biblical authors to a worldwide English-speaking audience, and in the process encouraging you to think through what translation is.” – Bill Mounce
