WHY? We're trying to read the first lesson in New Testament Catechesis. We read around the room, each child reading a verse and me interrupting and commenting and such. And one of our new students reads incorrectly. Or so I think. We all have the ESV. He has the ESV. But when we get to Acts 1:18 he reads that Judas "acquired" a field; my ESV and all the others have "bought." An odd word for a kid to come up with on his own. I look at his Bible - yes, it's ESV - AND IT HAS A DIFFERENT WORD there! This is the kind of thing that drives me absolutely BATTY. Adopt a text, fine. But then please LEAVE IT ALONE. How many other such little surprises await us this year? GRR.
Gripe mode off (maybe).
