Overview

Unlike other versions of the New Testament, this translation uses as many English words as are necessary to bring out the richness, force, and clarity of the Greek Text. Intended as a companion to, or commentary on, the standard translations, Wuest's "expanded translation" follows the Greek word order and especially reflects emphases and contrasts indicated by the original text.

It is hoped that this expanded translation will give the reader a clearer understanding of certain words used in previous translations. Some of these words are not the translation of the Greek word but its transliteration. Take, for example, the word “blasphemy” in the phrase “the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost.” This word is not itself an English word but merely a word formed by substituting English letters for Greek. Therefore, the translation here given renders the famous phrase thus: “impious and reproachful speech injurious to the divine majesty of the Holy Ghost.” Another example is Romans 6:3 (“baptized into Jesus Christ”), where “baptized” is a transliteration rather than a translation. The translation here given is: “placed in Jesus Christ.”
