Experience the New Testament afresh in Scot McKnight's bold translation. Typical translations of the New Testament make the biblical text as accessible as possible by using the language of our own day. At times this masks the distance between the New Testament text and modern readers. Scripture continues to speak to us but it speaks as an ancient text to the modern world.
New Testament scholar Scot McKnight offers a translation of the New Testament with a daring approach to the ancient text. Clever in its expression and at times stunning in its boldness, The Second Testament will challenge readers to experience God's Word anew.
God blesses the beggars in spirit because theirs is Heavens' Empire.
God blesses the grievers because they will be consoled.
God blesses the meek because they will inherit the land.
God blesses the ones hungering and thirsting for the rightness because they will be satisfied. (Matthew 5:3-6)
