I think this is an interesting series of misunderstandings :-) If
somebody wants to use a Hebrew bible text, it doesn't mean that he
necessarily is a researcher! There are some millions of people out
there that consider Hebrew their mother tongue and need a NT that
speaks their language -- just like Germans, Americans, or Indonesians.

>  What I ment was that the NT translation in Hebrew (ModernHebrew = the one
>on Sword) is the relaible one.

The point that Avihai is trying to make is along the lines of "Thank
you for offering the (NKJV|NIV|...) module! It is a good, reliable
translation for bible studying. A lot of people in my church like to
use the Good News Bible, but I think the text is too superficial to
allow for deeper bible studies."

Come on, don't tell me that you all bring Nestlé-Aland to your cell
group. :-)
