Why Are There So Many Different Bible Translations?

Does the fact there are so many different Bible translations mean we can’t trust the Bible? In this Short Answers film, Dr. Andy Bannister tackles a question commonly asked by (among others) our Muslim friends — and shows how far from causing us to doubt the Bible, the wide number of especially very early translations increases our confidence. We also discover a fascinating connection between the translation of the Bible’s text and an even more remarkable act of translation by God himself.
