Color-highlighted words and symbols in The Discovery Bible provide a functional approach to using the original-languages of Scripture – recognizing (without memorizing) fuller meanings of original Bible words. These come alive simply by reflectively reading along with the HELPS color-encodings.
Reading the Bible entirely in its original (Hebrew, Greek) languages means memorizing about 40,000 different Hebrew and Greek word-forms. The sheer amount of memorization keeps many from enjoying original-language study.
"Exact expressions" (grammatical precisions) of the sacred originals are viewable in translation through three "original-language windows" represented by the HELPS color-encodings displayed in The Discovery Bible – NASB and KJV. These open: rich verbal texturing of the original text; "word-pictures" (lexical hues) of the original concept-terms used in Scripture; and the emphasis (emphasized words) of the original manuscripts. Beyond-translation insights are quickly accessed, even by readers completely "unversed" in the biblical languages.
Seeing MORE through "three windows of the Word" . . .
God's Word always offers MORE to hungry Bible readers – those desiring to get deeper inside the sacred text. Here the Lord touches the heart, shapes the soul, opens the mind, and sends fresh strength.
Subtle meanings of Scripture often only become evident with intuitive, reflective reading, impulsed by "transparent views" of original (Hebrew, Greek) language precisions via the HELPS color-encodings. Reading Scripture with these "in-mind" (through "first-century eyes") catches inspired details that cause even familiar verses to glow with fresh meaning.
The HELPS color-encodings serve as "transparency-markers" to discover original-language meanings as one "reads along in real-time." HELPS is a translation-enhancement overlaid on an unaltered NASB and KJV which opens three "windows of the Word."
Here readers see MORE dimensioned meanings of the sacred originals which evokes MORE reflection, for MORE dynamic life-applications.
