He is also a Language Trainer and Consultant with national and international companies and organisations. I and my reviewers have worked from and checked my text against United Bible Societies' 4th edition/26th and 27th editions of Novum Testamentum Graece Greek New Testament (Nestle-Aland) as well as other English translations. My reviewers are respected NT authorities: Dr Gervais Angel, formerly NT Greek Examiner for the Church of England and tutor in NT Greek, Trinity College, Bristol, England. and Dr Pieter Lalleman, Tutor in Biblical Studies, Spurgeons College, London, England. Who is 'Word Come Alive' aimed at? 1 Christians who are so familiar with the language of the Bible that it has little or no impact on them, but who want to maintain a living relationship with Jesus Christ. I want such readers of the WCA to then go back to their NIV, ESV, NLT, KJV or NKJV to see what that says. 2 Readers without a knowledge of the Bible but who want to understand its message. Features of 'Word Come Alive': an extended translation (paraphrase) of the New Testament 1 Additional explanatory phrases in italics. For example, Ephesians 2:4-7: But God – what marvellous words these are: 'but God'! God intervened in this desperate situation simply because of who he is. He is infinitely rich in mercy, so he did not deal with us as we deserve. As a result of his great love, with which he loved us, he made us spiritually alive together with Christ. Because we are joined to Christ, God brought us to a new spiritual birth and into a living relationship with him. God made us alive, even when we were spiritually dead because we disobeyed him. You've been rescued only because of his grace – his kind love, his generous favour, that gives us life that we don't deserve in the slightest. Stop and reflect on this: you and I have been rescued from slavery to sin, God's just anger and death. We're now alive to God because we've been brought into a living relationship with God through Jesus Christ – and all this is only because of God's incredible love. Even more than this: God raised us up from spiritual death to life together with Christ. He has seated us securely together with him right now in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. At this very moment, we are enjoying the Father's glorious presence together with Christ! God's purpose in doing this was that he might showcase into the distant reaches of time the extravagant wealth of his generous love which is displayed in his kindness towards us in Christ Jesus. What glorious, marvellous privileges are ours in Christ! 2 Natural, contemporary informal English. For example, Ephesians 2:8: Now I'm going to explain God's great rescue operation, his salvation. How were you saved? By grace, only because of God's generous favour, his kind love. As regards our salvation, we bring nothing to the table, absolutely nothing. How then did you make this salvation your own? Through faith. We respond to God through faith. Faith is confident trust in God; it is depending on him. We gratefully receive what he has done for us in Christ. And this salvation is not the result of your own initiative but is God's gift to you. It becomes yours when you simply receive it from God.eBook

I want such readers of the WCA to then go back to their NIV, ESV, NLT, KJV or NKJV to see what that says. 2 Readers without a knowledge of the Bible but who want to understand its message. 'Word Come Alive' is written in natural, contemporary informal English, with additional explanatory phrases in italics in the actual text. For example, Philippians 2:2-5: I appeal to you to fill me with joy by all 'singing from the same hymnsheet', loving one another, working peacefully together, one in heart and soul and focusing on the good news of Christ. I urge you to examine your motives. Never do anything out of rivalry or arrogant self-interest; don't be conceited. Instead, be humble, valuing others as more important than yourselves. Don't keep asking, 'What's in it for me?' all the time; instead also, each one of you, consider the interests of other people. In your relationships with one another, you should always express the same attitude as Christ Jesus had. Philippians 4:10-13: I was immensely delighted in the Lord that your kind concern for me eventually blossomed afresh. I appreciate the fact that you were concerned for me all along, but I realise you lacked the opportunity to express your concern. Please don't misunderstand me. I'm not writing this because I feel hard done by and am in need. No; I've learnt the secret of being content in whatever circumstances I find myself. I know from experience what it is not to have enough and I know what it is to have more than enough. My contentment doesn't depend on my circumstances, you see. I've come to learn the secret of being content in any – yes, every – situation, whether I'm full to bursting or I'm faint from lack of food, whether I'm living in the lap of luxury or I've not got two pennies to rub together. I am content whatever my circumstances and can do all his will through Christ, who gives me his dynamic energy. Christ is the source of my strength: his power equips me to face life's challenges.eBook

Features of Word Come Alive: an extended translation (paraphrase) of the New Testament 1 Additional explanatory phrases shown in the actual text in italics John 13:10 Jesus explained: 'If you go out for a meal, you have a bath before you go, so that when you arrive, you only need to wash your feet; your whole body is already clean. In the same way, once you've been cleansed and put right with me and have had your sins forgiven, you don't need to keep washing your whole body. That washing is a once-for-all action when you first come to trust in me. After that, you only need to keep washing your feet, that is, to keep receiving fresh forgiveness for the dirt of the sins you pick up day by day. And most of you have been washed clean and share in my salvation, though not all of you.' 2 Background to a passage John 8:6 A tense silence came over the whole group. What would Jesus do? How would he respond? Would he side with the chief priests and Pharisees and stone her, so not forgiving her? Or would he agree with the ordinary people and release her, so setting aside the law? Jesus then did something strange that captured the attention of everyone present. Rather than answer his accusers directly, he bent down and began to use his finger to write in the dust. 3 The rich meaning of key passages John 8:12 Jesus spoke once more to the people, 'The whole world is in darkness, but I give light to everyone. I am the light of the world. If you walk with me through life, trusting me and following my example, you won't stumble along in the gloom. No, I lift the darkness. My light will shine on you to guide you. I will light up your path and show you the right way to live. You will then be able to see the way ahead clearly and know where you're going.' 4 Natural, contemporary informal English John 16:8 'When the Mentor comes in fresh power he will impress on the hearts of those who are hostile to me that they've been wrong about sin, about what is right and about judgment.'

Features of 'Word Come Alive': an extended translation (paraphrase) of the New Testament 1 Additional explanatory phrases in italics. For example, 1 John 3:1-3: Stop and look at the amazing love the Father has lavished on us! He has poured his love into our lives so generously. Let the wonderful reality of the Father's love for you impress itself deeply into your being. He has taken the initiative to call us the children of God. Just think: we are his own dear children! Remember that is who we are at this very moment. The reason why people do not recognise us as God's children is that they did not know him. Dear friends, we are the children of God right now. What we will be like is not yet fully clear to us, but what is absolutely clear is this: we know that when Christ appears at his return, we will be like him, because we will see him. Yes, you and I will actually see Christ! We will see him as he really is. Everyone – every child of God – who has such a hope in Christ's glorious return makes themselves pure, just as he is pure. They will keep themselves inwardly clean, removing anything that conflicts with what Christ is like. 2 Natural, contemporary informal English. For example, 3 John 9: I have written a letter of instruction to the church, but one of the leaders, a man named Diotrephes, will have nothing to do with us. He refuses to welcome us and does not recognise our authority. He is intent on being in the limelight all the time. He's power-crazy and likes throwing his weight around.

Full ImagePreview ImageLuke's Gospel: Word Come Alive by Martin Manser | BookBaby Bookshophttps://store.bookbaby.com/book/lukes-gospelAre you so familiar with the Bible text of your preferred version that it no longer speaks to you powerfully? Do you want to explore the message of the New Testament? Then this fresh, expanded translation of the New Testament (Word Come Alive) is for you. Respected Bible editor Martin Manser has included helpful phrases and background in italics within the text. The result is an insightful translation that expresses the original in contemporary, natural English which will encourage you to respond to the good news of Jesus. Sample text: Luke 2:1-7 At that time, Emperor Augustus issued an executive order that a census should be taken of the whole known world. The census was conducted so that the people who were registered would have to pay taxes. This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria. So everyone was required to go back to their own home town to be registered. Joseph therefore also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee and travelled a long way to the little village of Bethlehem (Davids home town) in Judea, because he came from Davids family line. Joseph went with Mary to be registered there. Mary was legally promised in marriage to him and she was expecting a child. While they were there, she went into labour. She gave birth to a son, her first child, with the rights of the firstborn son. She wrapped him in long strips of cloth and placed him gently in a feeding trough used by cattle, because there was no room that provided shelter. The Son of God was born in the most humble circumstances. Luke 15:25-32 But the elder son was out working in the field, and as he came close to home, he could hear music and dancing as he caught the smell of roast veal wafting through the air. He called one of the servants and demanded to know what was going on. The servant told him, Your brothers come home, and your father has killed the fattened calf because hes got him back safe and sound. But the elder son resented his fathers extravagant love and that he had forgiven the younger son so easily. The elder son became angry at the fuss being made of the younger son and refused to go in and join the party. So his father went out, came alongside him and kept on urging him to come in. But full of smug contempt, he answered his father, Look, I feel Ive been unfairly treated! After all, Ive been slaving my guts out dutifully for you for so many years. Ive been careful enough to have never once disobeyed any of your orders. Yet during all that time youve never rewarded me by giving me what I deserve. Youve never even given me a young goat so that I could celebrate with my friends. But when this precious son of yours turns up out of the blue, after using up your inheritance on prostitutes, you kill the fattened calf for him! Then the father responded tenderly to the elder brother, My dear son, you are always with me. Youve been with me all the time. Everything I have is yours. All the privileges of being my son have always been yours to enjoy. But we had to celebrate and be full of joy, because it is your brother – my son – who was dead and is now alive again. He was lost but now has been found.eBook
