JONATHAN MITCHELL NEW TESTAMENT SAMPLE

PASSAGES AND VERSES

A Sample Passage from Colossians 1:

 

12.  [We are folks who are] constantly giving thanks to the Father: the One calling you [other MSS: us] – as well as making [you; us] competent (sufficient; qualified; fit; suitable) into the divided share of the lot of the inheritance (or: into the part and portion of the allotted possession) of the set-apart folks (or: pertaining to the holy ones; belonging to the saints) within the Light;

13.  He who drags us out of danger (or: rescued us) forth from out of the midst of the authority of the Darkness (Darkness's jurisdiction and right; = the privilege of ignorance), and changes [our] position (or: transported [us], thus, giving [us] a change of standing, and transferred [us]) into the midst of the kingdom and reign of the Son of His love

        (or: into the midst of the sovereign influence of

            the Son Who has the characteristics and            

            qualities of His love; into union with the

            sovereign activities of the Son Whose origin is  

            His love; or: into the sphere of the reign of the

            Son of the Love which is Him; into the center of

            the kingdom of the Son, which is His love),

14.  in Whom (or: in union with [which Son]) we continuously have and hold the redemption (the release and liberation procured by payment of a ransom) [which results in] the sending away of the failures (or: the dismissal of the errors pertaining to falling short and straying to the side of the target; the flowing away of the sins; the divorce from mistakes).

15.  It is [this Son] Who is the Image (the Exact Formed Likeness; the Figure and Representation; visible likeness; portrait) of the not-seen God (or: the unable to be seen God; the invisible God), the Firstborn of all creation

        (or: of every creature; or: of every framing and

            founding; of every act of reducing from a state

            of disorder and wildness; or: pertaining to the

            whole creation; or: = the Inheritor of all

            creation Who will also assume authority over

            and responsibility for every creature         

            [note: this is the duty of the firstborn]),

16.  because within Him was created (or: in union with Him is founded and settled, is built and planted, is brought into being, is produced and established) the whole (or: all things) the things within the atmospheres and skies (or: heavens), and the things upon the earth (or: land); the visible things, and the unseen (or: unable to be seen; invisible) things: whether thrones (seats of power) or lordships (ownership systems) or governments (rulers; leadership systems; sovereignties) or authorities – the whole (or: all things) has been created and continues founded and stands framed through means of Him, and [proceeds, or was placed] into Him (or: = He is the agent and goal of all creation).

 

17.  And He is before (prior to; or: maintains precedence of) all things and all people, and the whole has (or: all things have) been placed together and now continues to jointly-stand (stands cohesively; is made to have a co-standing) within the midst of and in union with Him,

18.  and so He is the Head (or: Source) of the body – which is the called-out community (the ecclesia; the summoned congregation) Who is the Beginning (or: the Ruler; the Originator and Ruling Principle; the Beginning Power and Ability of the process), a Firstborn forth from out of the midst of dead folks, to the end that He would be birthed (may come into existence; or:  could come to be) within all things and in all people: He continuously holding first place

        (or: constantly being preeminent; or:

            habitually being the First One; or: continuing

            being the First Man [note: this phrase has in

            Greek literature been used as a title for a

            person]),

19.  because WITHIN Him all – the entire contents (that which fills everything; all the full measure [of things]) delights to settle down and dwell as in a house (or: because He approved all the fullness [of all existence] to permanently reside within Him)

20.  and THROUGH Him at once to transfer the whole (= all of existential creation), away from a certain state to the level of another which is quite different (or: to change all things, bringing movement away from being down; to reconcile all things; to change everything from estrangement and alienation to friendship and harmony and move all), INTO Him – making (constructing; forming; creating) peace and harmony through the blood of His cross (execution stake): through Him, whether the things upon the earth (or: land) or the things within the atmospheres and heavens!
