Those of you with a Seventh-day Adventist background should pay particular attention to the following statement by Ellen White: "I saw that God had especially guarded the Bible, yet when copies of it were few, learned men had in some instances changed the words, thinking that they were making it more plain, when in reality they were mystifying that which was plain, by causing it to lean to their established views, which were governed by tradition." Early Writings pp 220,221 The Aramaic English New Testament furnishes detailed explanations of many passages that were distorted by translators in just this fashion, and thus will prove to be an invaluable addition to your library!
