Publisher Description

The Old Testament Book of Amos is often quoted from pulpits and podiums as a source of wisdom and clarity concerning modern-day racial issues. To explore this concept further, the best place to begin is the same place that Bible students in the first Century church would have begun: By hearing and speaking the actual words of Amos out loud for ourselves. And to do that, what better Bible translation than one built to be spoken and heard by this generation.

The Revised Geneva Translation of the Holy Bible is a 21st Century update of the very first widely-distributed version of the Holy Bible in English, The Geneva Bible. Just as in all preceding centuries, Biblical text in the 1500’s was meant to be heard and seen, as much as read, because so many of those who received it were illiterate (especially Gentiles) and needed to memorize it and speak it back to each other often in order to facilitate meditation.

However, unlike the Geneva Bibles of the 1500’s, there is no commentary or other human adornment. The RGT intentionally omits these things and makes single interpretive choices, based primarily on the translations of William Tyndale and F.H.A. Scrivener. The study of textual variants is left to other bibles more properly suited for that purpose. In scholarly terms, the RGT is a formal or complete equivalency, based on the Byzantine text-type family of manuscripts. At this writing, the RGT is one of only a handful of modern translations of the "New Testament" to be so. It is our hope that this project will be a living and active Bible for this generation, (Matthew 7:24), and that it will be profitable for teaching, convicting, correcting, and instructing in righteousness (2Timothy 3:16).

“...that your faith might not be in the wisdom of man, but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:5)
