NEW BIBLE FROM WACK BISHOPS!
#71
In my opinion, despite the arguments about "burnt offering,"  "holocaust," etc., I find the following verse in the unchanged New Testament of the NAB very troublesome:

This is in Luke Chapter 2, where a decree goes out from the Roman Emperor about having all citizens go to the city of their birth to be enrolled:

Tha NAB version:

1 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus 2 that the whole world should be enrolled.

2 This was the first enrollment, when Quirinius was governor of Syria.

3 So all went to be enrolled, each to his own town.

4 And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David,

5 to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.

6 While they were there, the time came for her to have her child,

7 and she gave birth to her firstborn son.  She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Help me understand the word "bethrothed":  to me, it means, "engaged to be married"; "the person to whom one is engaged":  Joseph goes to Bethlehem with Mary and they are not "married" but only engaged.  The lifestyle of the 20th century, "living together"?  And horrors!!  She is with Child!!!


This is the Douay-Rheims version:


[1] And it came to pass, that in those days there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that the whole world should be enrolled.
[2] This enrolling was first made by Cyrinus, the governor of Syria.
[3] And all went to be enrolled, every one into his own city.
[4] And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem: because he was of the house and family of David,
[[5] To be enrolled with Mary his espoused wife, who was with child.

[6] And it came to pass, that when they were there, her days were accomplished, that she should be delivered. [7] And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

Joseph and Mary are married and she is wirth Child.  So what is this "bethrothed" thing in the NAB, echoed in the NIV (New International version), but the KJV gets it right.
