The New Testament takes on new meaning for younger generations.
With ‘The Wilton Translation of The New Testament’, pastor Clyde Wilton has taken the Bible, starting with the Gospel of John, and translated it from Greek, sentence by sentence. According to Wilton, it is written in the English of today, in a way that everyone can understand.
“With so many different translations of the Bible in circulation today, I decided it was time for me to figure out what it said, word for word,” says Wilton. “To be able to accurately evaluate the teachings, we must know exactly what the text was meant to say.”
Wilton, a pastor for over 40 years, is concerned that some of the language used in the Bible is outdated, making it difficult to apply to today’s world.
“The Bible speaks to every new generation. We have come a long way since it was written but the main issues of life are the same,” says Wilton. “The reality of sin, love, hate and forgiveness have not changed.”
According to Wilton, there is a need for modern Biblical translations. ‘The Wilton Translation of The New Testament’ speaks to the issues we face today using modern language to interpret the teachings. Wilton believes that it is necessary to read the Scripture with current, updated language to understand its true message.
