My Sister, My Wife

Published: January 3, 2023 (Originally published: January 15, 2007)

My husband and I made a new years resolution to read the bible together every day. We started with Genesis and we were wondering why Abraham kept denying that Sarah was his wife. I read a little bit further and Isaac denied that Rebekah was his wife. We were wondering why they would do this and thought maybe you could offer us some insight.

Translation Differences

Published: January 3, 2023 (Originally published: January 17, 2007)

Let me just say that I love your site. I am a repeat visitor and your last response to my question helped out a lot and I appreciate it.

My new question is this, why in certain Bible versions (i.e. NIV, KJV, etc) is there a footnote with a reference that a particular word is written or phrased differently in other manuscripts? Like for example in the NIV version there is a footnote for John 1:18, that reads: Some manuscripts but the only (or only begotten) Son. Why is this so, I thought all the Bible manuscripts where all the same just translated into English, various languages and versions. Can you please explain this?
