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

    Not a translation. Brian Simmons has repeatedly lied about his credentials as a linguist and this 'translation' is just his own words added to the Bible for no reason but to sound more charismatic.

    TL;DR; Not a recommended "translation" of the Bible Please be careful reading this "translation" of the Bible. This is not scripture, it has a lot of Simmons personal interpretation injected into the text as if it is scripture. And in some cases it changes the original text. At most I suggest that you use this as a reference as someone's commentary on the Bible rather than a version of the biblle. Im my oppinion this version should be considered a no, do not use. Yes I do own it, and yes I have read a few passages and compared them to other versions and original text. Look up Brian Simmons and you will see that most all of his credentials have been questioned. His claimed history hs been challanged by the Bible orgs that he has worked with. And I question a lot of his own claims of resons for "translating" this version of the Bible. And these claims are readily available on Youtube spoken by Brian Simmons himself.

    Simmons lied about his credentials (confirmed by previous coworkers that he did not help with translations) and has created a warped Bible to fit his false teachings. I am disappointed that Logos even offers this.

    It’s interesting 555 is in the ISBN number, speaking to faith. - Deuteronomy 5th book, 5th Ch, 5th verse: urging God’s people to obey based on what God had done before. - First five commandments connect God to man; last 5 how man should connect to neighbor. 5 fold ministry God to man to neighbor. When the religious demons go out of their way to judge like in Matthew 7, you know Christ Jesus must be near. They hate Him, they’ll hate you for reading His Word. They claim to know the logos but never seen or displayed the rhema. The kingdom of God doesn’t come by persuasive words, but by the Word a demonstration of power is a demonstration of his Word in your soul. Come Holy Spirit. Come deeper into the river of Rev 22, like Ezekiel wade out into the living water.

    It’s impossible to truly call this a translation. Scholar after scholar have dismantled this horrendous twisting of the original texts. I’m really disappointed that Logos even offers it.
