  1. Gotta love stupid people – never does it mention unicorns or any of that *in the original language,* those are mistranslations only found in a few incorrect ENGLISH translation, the Bible was NOT written in English, for gods sake if people did basic textual criticism they would know that. So tired of ignorant people who can’t even read Hebrew.

      • The original Jewish texts were in Hebrew and the rewritten in Ancient Greek in Alexandria, Jesus would have spoken Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew but most of the New Testament letters were written in Greek. There may have been a tiny fraction of some New Testament writings in Aramaic (if at all) as it was more of a working class language of the near east

  2. Hi Rashid. The Bible was written in three languages. The Old Testament in Hebrew. The New Testament mostly in Greek with some sections and possibly Matthew originally in Aramaic.

  3. Constantine, was the emperor of east what is now called Istanbul was once the City of Constantine, named after Emperor Constantine and the land was called Constantinople.There were 7 emperors the last was in Spain just before Columbus. People not familiar with language come up with translation mistakes.

  4. Because one cannot see God, God doesn’t exist. There for one can’t see air, there for air doesn’t exist. How are you breathing. Unicorns’ monsters etc. are not found in the Bible I read put together, as a collection of books 4th century. Years of translation fix. When child sees an elephant for the first, it’s a monster.
