Dr. Lysvik shares his journey into his current role, his background in linguistics, and the importance of making the Bible accessible to new generations. The conversation covers the balance between word-for-word and meaning-for-meaning translations, the necessity of revisions, and the process of making these updates. They also address common concerns about changing the Word of God and provide a thoughtful perspective on the role of translation in preserving the faith.   For more information about Word First Ministries, visit: Our Website To support Word First financially, visit: Our Online Donation Page Visit our social media pages on: Instagram Facebook TikTok   🔑 Episode Keywords Bible Translation, Norwegian Bible Society, Textual Criticism, Linguistics, Phonetics And Phonology, Hebrew And Semitic Languages, Bible Revision, Sami Languages, Easy Reading Translation, Sign Language Bible, Biblical Hebrew, Greek Translation, Bible Competitors, United Bible Societies, Translation Process, Language Evolution, Idiomatic Vs.
