Week 10 – “Cutchery Tamil Versus Pure Tamil” Israel

November 23, 2007

I thought it was really interesting that there even is such a thing as “missionary Tamil” (276). I think people are too critical of missionaries who came into an unreached area and toiled for years and years to give people the Bible in their own language. It’s true that these translations have difficulties, but so do all other translations. That’s why educating people is important, so they can make their own decisions about the text. At least the people were aware of the differences involved in “missionary Tamil.” That shows knowledge and education to make wise decisions when reading the text.
