Most Highlighted Verses in The Passion Translation

Matthew 6:33–34: “So above all, constantly chase after the realm of God’s kingdom and the righteousness that proceeds from him. Then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”

Matthew 11:28–30: “Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.”

John 15:7: But if you live in life-union with me and if my words live powerfully within you—then you can ask whatever you desire and it will be done.

Romans 8:5–6: Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue spiritual realities. For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mindset controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace.

Romans 8:17: And since we are his true children, we qualify to share all his treasures, for indeed, we are heirs of God himself. And since we are joined to Christ, we also inherit all that he is and all that he has. We will experience being co-glorified with him provided that we accept his sufferings as our own.

Romans 8:28: So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.

Galatians 2:20: “My old identity has been co-crucified with Messiah and no longer lives; for the nails of his cross crucified me with him. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me—we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, and dispenses his life into mine!

Ephesians 1:7: Since we are now joined to Christ, we have been given the treasures of redemption by his blood—the total cancellation of our sins—all because of the cascading riches of his grace.

Hebrews 4:16: So now we come freely and boldly to where love is enthroned, to receive mercy’s kiss and discover the grace we urgently need to strengthen us in our time of weakness.

James 1:2–4: My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.

Praise for the Print Edition

One of the greatest things to happen with Bible translation in my lifetime.

—Bill Johnson, Pastor, Bethel Church, Best-Selling Author

The Word of God is our collective and yet deeply personal love letter from above. It positions you and me within proven, godly wisdom and gives precious insight into the heart, nature, and goodness of God....With my husband, Brian, and our Hillsong church family, we know these pages will bring to life the One whose name is Jesus—whose passion is humanity and whose heart is for you.

—Bobbie Houston, Co-Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church

Forged many years ago while translating the Scriptures among South American tribes, and hammered out on the anvil of decades of personal devotion and apostolic experience, my dear friend Brian Simmons brings to the earth a powerful and refreshing translation of the Scriptures that is fueling and inflaming the hearts of tens of thousands worldwide. Like the Living Bible that sprung forth in the days of the Jesus Movement, this translation bursts forth from the womb of this present revival. Read it and get caught up in a God-swirl of spiritual understanding and revelation.

—Lou Engle, The Call

Brian Simmons’ work is truly breathtaking! We so appreciate the labor of love that went into translating the Scriptures directly from the Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. The Passion Translation has energized our study of the Bible, and we’re certain it will do the same for you.

—John and Lisa Bevere, Founders of Messenger International and Best-Selling Authors

I believe the Passion Translation will be the Bible of choice for the next Jesus people movement.

—Dr. Ché Ahn, President & Founder, Harvest International Ministry Founder, HRock Church, Pasadena, CA, International Chancellor, Wagner University

The Passion Translation makes powerful truths more accessible and at the same time stirs our inner man to rejoice and receive.

—Graham Cooke, Speaker, Author, and Founder of Brilliant Book House

    I have been using The Passion Translation Daily, For about 5 years, and I agree, It is Not A Translation to establish Doctrinal Christian Beliefs. BUT, it is the Best Inspirational m, encouraging Bible out there for Revelation Light of fresh perspectives on understanding how the scriptures apply to our daily lives. The Holy Spirit told me this after someone was criticizing The Passion Bible: There Are 2 types of Bibles: One for Establishing Doctrine. And another for Encouraging, Inspiration. The King James Only folks, they stand in the pulpit explaining the scriptures from their K.J.V. . Their Explanation becomes their own Bible translation of information, from their own Revelations of Bible Interpretations within their own church or ministry organizations, from their “Acceptable King James Version” which is far outdated for this End-time Genration, that is burned out the Old Wine Skin of dead end Religion that loves their rules much than Love and Relationships. That is is why the Church is going down the drain, so the bride of Christ with The Holy Spirit Oil can rise to the top, while dead religion drops and is blow away by Yahweh so The New Wineskin Generation of Joel 2 Revivalists can, read The Passion Translation and be Renewed, Refreshed and Restored from withering up on the do’s and don’ts of The King James Only Survivalist. It’s time for the church to be wise, open your eyes and Repent of your critical spirit that has caused a Pandemic in our nation. We were called to be The Intimate, Covenant Bride of Christ, that lays our life down in sacrifice for one another in fasting and prayer for the faults and failures we so easily discover. How many times have you prayed for those whom you have determined were in Error? Galatians 6:1-3 commands us to Restore one another in Love. Forgive us Lord for Doing more criticism than Restoration of Gods precious people. Shalom

    A more accurate label for this work would be “targum” rather than “translation”. This is a dangerously sectarian text.

    This is a terrible "translation" and should be avoided at all costs. Before reading it, one should do some basic research on Brian Simmon's. He claims to have been visited by Jesus and given the ability to download new information and enlightened to understand scripture in ways no one else has. He claims to have gone to heaven and visited with Jesus. He tried to steal a book that was supposedly a missing chapter to the book of John. Jesus told him he could not take the book, but that a time would come when he would be given it to share with everyone else. Mike Winger has some great content on Brian Simmon and he has done several videos with widely known and trusted scholars who have critiqued Simmon's "translation" work. I would encourage anyone considering this Bible to research the author and his method before using or teaching from this work.

    The Passion Translation is not a translation. It's a paraphrase at best and fan-fiction at worst.
  7. Alex Limonchenko
    I love this translation. I am reading it personally and use it alongside with my ESV and NIV to teach from. Good job, Brian Simmons.

    If it were possible to rate this 0 stars in a review, I would be doing so. An absolutely terrible and harmfully misleading translation.
  10. Cody Robert Hamilton
    Perhaps the most disingenuous "translation" there is. There are far too many liberties taken with the text. This twists the Scripture to push a specific theological agenda. Overall, this should be avoided except for the purpose of refutation.
