  • A well without a bucket - why the Bible needed to be translated into English and the importance of the Bible for Christians.
  • Translating - the Bible was originally written in Greek and Hebrew. The first translators needed perseverance in their work.
  • Building blocks - translating the Bible was the work of many people over a long period of time. They used the work of previous translators to help them.
  • Teamwork - creating the King James Bible was a team effort and needed the right people in the team who could work together.
