Bible Translation Approaches: Contrasting Closest Natural Equivalence to Paraphrase

Which Bible Translation Should I Read?

Paraphrases Retell the Thought Using Different Words

Three specific paraphrases are noted in the graphic above:

  • New International Reader’s Version
  • The Message
  • Good News Translation (a.k.a. Today’s English Version)

Simply stated, a paraphrase is not a translation; it is a retelling of Scripture using an individual person’s words, in an attempt to make the meaning clearer.
