  1. Even the wisest of men could not master these wonderful creatures called women, at their worst! I wonder how often he needed to stay at the ‘corner of the roof’ or the ‘wilderness’ rather than face one or many of his quarrelsome and irritable wives! Nice one, Alex!
  2. Yes, we are all joined in prayer. May it go as Jehovah wills. The trial will go down in history as ‘'A Litmus Test For Religious Freedom'.
  3. Thanks Johan. I uninstalled it, then reinstalled. I now have my notes but no bookmarks. No prob.
  4. @The German did your bookmarks and notes transfer to the 2018 RNWT? Mine didn’t...
  5. Jehovah must’ve known what I needed...from the re-enactments on showing honor to one another in marriage to the music video....I have had a good cry. I needed it.
  6. @Dismal_Bliss Argh! Google Translate....how it has got me saying strange things at the meetings! Try this one: https://www.deepl.com/en/translator#de/en/Dieser Becher steht für den neuen Bund%2C der durch mein Blut in Kraft tritt
  7. Wikipedia already updated....wow! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bible_translations_into_German
  8. Br. Lösch emphasized that the new Bible is primarily for the ministry; he encouraged us not to read the new Bible with a view to criticizing the translation. He also said it is not an aid to learning Hebrew/Greek. On a personal note, it impressed me to know that Br. Lösch 'practises what he preaches'. (Those in attendance would recall that he really emphasized the need to read the Bible daily. Not regularly!) He admitted that he reads the Bible every day, with the goal of completing it every year. You have already read some of the tips he gave for effective reading, such as not doing it before bedtime (goodnight cigarette illustration). One that stuck in my head was not listening to audio recordings of the Bible while driving. He recommended listening to Awake recordings etc instead. I was touched that the FDS really want us to hold the word of God, a love-letter from Jehovah to us, with the highest regard!
  9. Meant the German 2018 RNWT....should've specified. The reference however leads to Appendix A3 where I found some of the text and images found in the study notes in the English Study Bible.
  10. The removal of the short and long conclusions of the final chapter of Mark from the main text is significant. Hopefully, these will appear in the study notes once the study edition is released.
  11. Age old question: with the download of the German RNWT, my bookmarks and notes did not merge ...is this normal or is there a way to troubleshoot this? 🆘
  12. The redundant wording is gone! It is simpler for non-native German speakers (like me) to understand the reading.
  13. My favorite verse compared in the old and new versions....it is waaaaay simpler!
