This is a completely revised edition of ‘THE SAVIOUR’ by Camil Bulcke, SJ. The author originally used the Westminster Version of the New Testament. But in the third and subsequent editions he used Msgr. R.A. Knox’s translation. The thirteenth edition of the book was published in 1971 by the Catholic Press Ranchi.
This percent edition has replaced the text of the thirteenth edition with Today’s English Version (TEV) translated and published by the United Bible Societies. But we have been faithful to the original in terms of keeping every verse of the four evangelists concerned as in the original. However, in many cases we have adopted the titles and subtitles of TEV.
Another thing to note is that we used one version of TEV while entering the text in the computer. Later we used the latest version of TEV. In editing the text we have used the latest version in which the translation of some expressions has been updated. For instance, ‘Remember this’ is replaced with “I assure you” and “watch out for” is updated with “Be on your guard against”.
