How to Translate the New Testament (Peter Williams)
Play • 38 min

This month, we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the English Standard Version—first published by Crossway in 2001. To help mark this milestone, this month we're releasing a number of fascinating interviews focused on the ESV and Bible translation.

Today's episode is a conversation with ESV Translation Oversight Committee member Dr. Peter Williams on translating the New Testament, the differences between modern English and biblical Greek, the trickiest books in the NT to translate, and Jesus’s masterful (and, at times, clever) use of language in the Gospels.
