Biblical Scholars have always strived to bring a better understanding to the English translations of the Bible. The Message Bible translation was completed in parts starting in 1993 going through 2002. Now it is among the most popular Bible translations available among Christians in English-speaking countries. Many people refer to the Message Bible as a paraphrase of the original text. This is accurate but possibly misleading. This Bible translation was done by Eugene H. Peterson, and he translated this Bible using the ancient manuscripts and texts. This Bible is a highly idiomatic translation that aims to bring the same spirit into the words as was meant in the ancient languages. The words may not be the most literal translation of the ancient scripts, but they are equivalent in meaning. This type of translation is considered highly dynamic. As you read the Message Bible you will understand more clearly the meaning of the passages that you read. As you understand more fully it will become easier for you to apply the teachings of the Holy Bible in your life.
