So Many Translations: How Do I Choose?
Mark Taylor, Mark Strauss, and I gave a presentation this afternoon at CBE in Dallas entitled, "So Many Translations: How Do I Choose?" I've posted a PDF of our notes here.

Bible Trivia #1
On Thursday, one of my teammates at Tyndale asked a couple of Bible questions:
Can anyone name the second capital of the Northern Kingdom of Israel? (No Wikipedia. I used that.)

For two more points, can you name all three in order?

For three more points, do you know the years they served as capitals (I don’t have the answer to this…yet)?

"Hmmm," I thought. "Interesting questions. I'll bet the NLT Study Bible can answer them." So I went to the NLT Study Bible online, and within five minutes I had the answers:
  1. Shechem (931-909) – 1 Kings 12

  2. Tirzah (909-886 BC) – 1 Kings 15:21, 32-34

  3. Samaria (886-722 BC) – 1 Kings 16:23-24

That was fun.
