1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted Culture

Get tickets: 1946, The Movie

Bible translation is an unusual subject for a movie.  The film “1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted Culture” has received complimentary reviews from theologians about the way it deals with Bible translation and Biblical interpretation.  Below is a thoughtful reflection by a campus chaplain with years of experience in helping students of the Bible. Hesed Project CRC also received other comments by respected theologians: 

The exegesis [Bible study] described in the film is high quality, responsible scholarship – but not indisputable. I think the producers of the movie deeply desire to be honest and fair with those who disagree with them. The producers do not make people who disagree with them look stupid or bigoted.”

The movie shows how Bible translation is complicated, fraught and invariably mistaken at times. It reminds us why the church affirms that the original text of Scripture (which we don’t even have) is infallible, but not translations of that text.”
