How many versions of the Bible are available in your primary language? Mine is English and there are hundreds of different versions available to me. That study has been a major project for me over the past few years. But a far more important one has been my reading the Bible.
I read an article this morning, The English Translation Deluge, by Rob J. Hyndman. He brings up the very important point that there are still many people who do not have any Bible in their language.
We can help right this problem. No, I can't translate the Bible. But Rob lists several organizations that can and do. Please read his article. Then consider supporting the United Bible Societies, Wycliffe Bible Translators or SIL International.
I remember how excited I was when I got my first Bible and read it through. I pray everyone will have that opportunity!

A big thanks to my friend at Bibles of the Past for this link! The Württembergische Landesbibliothek Stuttgart has scans of the 1526 Tyndale New Testament kept there. Click here to go directly to the image viewer. The cover has "1550" but the pages inside match the Hendrickson facsimile of a 1526 edition.

Craddock uses the KJV text, but he emphasizes every word, name or pronoun that refers to Christ. So, in the passage from John, the words JESUS, I, and ME are in all caps and italics. The passage from 2 Timothy is exactly as it appears in the KJV (no words emphasized).
From the Preface: "The CHRIST Emphasis Bible or the CHRIST Emphasis New Testament is based on the fact that the Bible is God's message by the Holy Spirit. God's word, each book and chapter, emphasizes CHRIST in JESUS, the SON OF GOD, the SON OF MAN, the LORD. God speaks by the Holy Spirit through His SON, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, in the message of the scriptures. God's word has its own emphasis and application"
"All references to CHRIST are capitalized and italicized to show the CHRIST emphasis of God's word."
"Each chapter has a CHRIST emphasis, contextual heading and CHRIST emphasis contextual subheadings."
