    It seems logical that the GB would release a new Bible at their annual meeting. After all, most jws expect something new and revealing at the annual meeting such as last year's explanation of the faithful and discreet slave. If they have nothing new to clarify, then a new Bible would be greeted by the flock.

    They're still translating the Nwt into Krakatoan, Eskimo and that African clicking language and only have parts of the bible in Myanmar and others and it's taken them 50 years to get this far, so how could they start it all over again? It will take further decades to translate into even major languages like Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish etc let alone krakatoan.


    Maybe it's a new brochure entitled, " We don't know Sh**!!" If it is a new NWT, then what would the changes be? More confusing footnotes? All references to Jesus remove when Iesous appears before or after kyrious? Maybe " Jehobo " is the new pronounciation of YHWH, because he is always broke?!

    Bet money that "apostles and older men" is rendered Governing Body.

    Maybe it is not so big a deal, just a few verses changed, maybe some books removed or added. Some verses or chapters added or removed.

    Such a bible is no big deal and a bit of an anticlimax for an assembly, a meeting makes more sense.

    maybe this will make JW's research the greek and hebrew to look at how the changes are justified.

    St George, where? I think I would have remembered that!

    Oh wow I even posted on that thread and never noticed the picture.

    Maybe the new bible will have a built in credit card reader for those impromptu "I would love to give, but don't have any cash on me at the moment"

    The 2006 edition of the NWT had all those square brackets removed, ie they don't even tell you they're adding to the scriptures anymore. Maybe it's in that vein.

    Yes, I remember the Org book released at a Service meeting. I remember the section allowing Elders to retire from their positions if they voluntary wanted to do so, removed. Then, in the most recent revised version it was put back in.

    In the 1st and last meeting I attended, they bragged about translation of Bible/literatures in 1,000++ languages, and in the video showed an Afrikan lady said how she was so touched and shed tears because of that. And oh, they also did not failed to say that "the Christendom failed to properly carry out translation works".

    It was a special meeting because a CO came to the congregation.

    In the hunt for Osama Ben Ladin, it was woman searchers that came up with the idea to follow the couriers and tracing their movements and activities, so they zeroed in on his whereabouts.

    To scoop the WTB&TrackSociety, what indications are evident that points to a new Bible. movements of paper, ink, staff, comments from Gov Bod, Printing press modifications etc. Would it be ethical and theocratic to try bribery? People like Randy Watters would know what to watch for if a new Bible was in the works.
