Bible Translation and Study 


The Purpose of this Site


Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek ScripturesKingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures

Since the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures was published between 1950 and 1961 by Jehovah's Witnesses, it has been the object of much unwarranted criticism.  The aim of this site is to discuss some of the criticisms of the New World Translation and to offer a defence. 



I compiled some of these articles as replies to letters from an online correspondent, who, unfortunately, refused to read them.  Since then, I have researched a number of other articles in answer to common questions about the New World Translation.

Two articles on this site are not about the New World Translation.  One of them discusses whether Jehovah's Witnesses are guilty of false prophecy, as many opposers allege.  Another defends Jehovah's Witnesses belief that the Archangel Michael is Jesus Christ.  The main focus of this site, however, is the translation of the Bible.

I hope to add at least one new article per month to this site, so please come back.  In the meantime, there are some other excellent sites by Jehovah's Witnesses defending the New World Translation.  See the 'Links' page for details.


October 11th, 2005: Does the New World Translation Add Words to Colossians 1:17, 18? 

I have also made some alterations to a few of the articles, particularly those concerning Franz & Hebrew and Hommel & the NWT.

July 11th, 2005: "Fullness of the Divine Quality" at Colossians 2:9.

June 10th, 2005: The Kingdom Interlinear Translation and the Deception of MacGregor Ministries.  It is amazing the lies that some people will tell to support their beliefs.  You can read a refutation of some of them in this essay.


I would really appreciate it if any scholarly-minded Witnesses have any observations on this site and on the quality of the arguments used.  Please feel free to write to me if you have any corrections or suggestions for improvement.
