Re: Who is 'El' in the Semitic Pantheon, c.400-300 BC?

The first verse of Homer's Iliad reads "Sing, O Goddess" (μηνιν αειδε θεα) and similar to Genesis 1:1 "the God created" (אלהים ברא).

Jacob not James

One thing that bothers me about New translations of New Testament, they don't restore the names, for example Jacob (Ιάκωβος) in Mark 1:19 is called James in the KJV, NKJV, NLT, ASV, DBY, HNV, RSV, WEB, YLT, NIV, ESV, CSB, NET, BBE, NASB20, NASB95.

What is the reason behind this?
