    I know a few things to look for when the new translation comes out.

    So would I suppose that the NWT at the jw.org official site will be replaced with the new one? Or they would continue to be using the old version...

  • obarac

    New info about Bible said that is not revised version but -

    "just the style, comes in different color, the letters are bigger and now they have a bigger appendix on the back ... "

  • processor

    The New New World Translation

    Maybe they replaced "Jehovah" with "the Governing Body" and "Jesus" with "the Faithful and Discreet Slave class" ...

  • processor

    the letters are bigger

    Oh, that reminds me, didn't they plan to remove the square brackets?

  • obarac

    Maybe NWT with Reasoning together-

  • Billy the Ex-Bethelite
    Billy the Ex-Bethelite

    "comes in different color"

    I vote for the return of green!

    And they'd better print the NWT in purple for the Jehovah's Witness formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince...

    Reason 1, the cost. Every Jw would want/need a copy of the new edition, and the Bible is one of the more expensive to produce. The WT society is too short of cash to produce a translation (and then to re-translate to other languages) in 7 million copies

    It actually costs less than $3 to produce the NWT with the new paperback cover. (FACT). Money isn't the issue. And they have many branches that can produce just as fast as US. Printing a new NWT will be the same cost, because they still print the current one as part of the regular rotation. All they need to do is change the plates in the press. They certainly have the material means to get it done. And they start convention releases at the end of January. So they could at least get the bulk of Witnesses one copy by now.

    I don't know if it's true or not, but I know this would not be an issue.

    LOL! Love that list, processor!

    • Is There a God? ... Who Cares!
  • processor

    the letters are bigger

    The revised NWT will combine the advantages of Biblical Hebrew (no vocals) with the advantages of Biblical Greek (no spaces, no punctuation marks and no lowercase letters). Matthew 24 will then read:
