Example Scripture from the Common English Bible:
"The Son is the image of the invisible God,
the one who is first over all creation,
Because all things were created by him:
both in the heavens and on the earth,
the things that are visible and the things that are invisible.
Whether they are thrones or powers,
or rulers or authorities,
all things were created through him and for him.
He existed before all things,
and all things are held together in him.
He is the head of the body, the church,
who is the beginning,
the one who is first over the dead
so that he might occupy the first place in everything.
Because all the fullness of God was pleased to live in him,
and he reconciled all things to himself through him-
whether things on earth or in the heaves.
He brought peace through the blood of his cross."
Colossians 1:15-20

I do believe the Bible is still relevant. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. And the Bible is his revealed Word. Reading the Bible is how we get to know him, so it will always be relevant! Not only does the Bible tell us about God, it also tells us about ourselves. Human nature is consistent too!

As a Christian i do believe it is important to study the Bible, because otherwise how will we know what God's promises to us are, and to study gives us a greater understanding of God's word. I would love a chance to win this one because I think it would make a great gift Bible for a friend of mine. kittycrochettwo at msn dot com
