What is the English Standard Version of the Bible. The English Standard Version of the Bible was published in 2001. The leader of that group was Dr. J.I Packer, one of the well-known and respected evangelical leaders in the Christian church. Dr. Packer states clearly that the translation of the English Standard Version is almost a literal word by word translation. It's a beautiful translation of the Bible I believe and he states that it's within the 500 year tradition of the English translation of the Bible that we have come to this new translation of the English Standard Version. It started with James Tyndale in his interpretation of the Bible in 1526, then the King James Version in 1611, then and other versions of the Bible down up to the basis of the translation of the English Standard Version which is the revised standard version in 1971. And so this translation is in the tradition of the great translations in the Christian English Church. The Bible also has had a series of persons that helped Dr. Packer to achieve this, one group of sixty people that helped with the translation using the most recent scholarships, using the most recent understanding of the Biblical words and then using another advisory group to help them bring all these together to get this publication in 2001. I believe that if you use this translation and on or with the translation that you most frequently use now that you'll find some benefit and some beauty that this translation brings to you.
