Does anyone know anything about the new legacy standard bible? I guess it'll be available this fall.

https://lsbible.org/

It's out of John MacArthur's Master's University. It claims to be "in the lineage of the KJV" buts it's just a rehash of the Lockman Foundation's NASB.

What he said, basically just a revision of the NASB.

I have no need, nor do I care about new bibles. The one I have has served me well since 1977. I had it rebound twice.

While I'm not changing Bibles, I try to be observant of what new Bibles are coming out so I can properly direct others when they ask me questions about what Bible should they use. I know I can honestly say to use the KJV as it's perfectly preserved, but I find I appreciate my KJV Bible more when I study study how other Bibles came to be.

So what is the point of this new Bible? 

More $$$?

I highly doubt it's motivated by $, they probably just feel like the NASB has some deficiencies and wished to correct them. 

I would be hesitant to ascribe ill motives when we don't know them.

I was asking  question if it was $$$ driven, not making a statement. That's why I used a "?" at the end.

Sorry, I interpreted your question as somewhat of a rhetorical question.

I believe it was translated to be a more conservative alternative to the 2020 NASB. I know that it's supposed to be a revision of the 1995 NASB. From what I've read it appears to support many of Macarthurs beliefs like his, obsession with the word "slave".

I honestly don't see the point of making a new translation either. I do suspect that money is one of the factors too.

I'm sure it is filled with Macarthurs personal beliefs and even though there was a team of scholars doing the translating they were all guys hand picked by John and I'm sure share, similar beliefs.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
