Read the Parasha Commentary for Nizavim 5776

Welcome to the Messianic Education Trust website! Here you can find details of the Trust, what it does, where it is and the way we are aiming to carry out our calling.

Each week we publish a commentary on the Torah portion, which you can read here or by clicking the button on the left 'Weekly Parasha'. All the texts used in the commentaries are fully indexed in the Scripture Index.

On the Books page you can see a selection of books that we recommend for study tools and can be bought through Amazon, ABE Books or other on-line merchants.

Cultural Translation IV

Pym now lists a number of other issues that can be included to make cultural translation more effective:

Cultural translation can draw on several wide notions of translation, particularly as developed in 1) social anthropology, where the task of the ethnographer is to describe the foreign culture, 2) actor-network theory ("translation sociology"), where the interactions that form networks are seen as translations, and 3) sociologies that study communication between groups in complex, fragmented societies, particularly those shaped by migration.

That's pretty inclusive and opens the debate up to significant input.
