A Strong Caution Against the Passion “Translation”

This week at the Soul Garage we talked a little about the spectrum of Bible translations. In the process I urged everyone to avoid altogether using the relatively new Passion Translation which critics argue is not even qualified to be referred to as a translation. Several youth asked me afterwards to help them better understand why I strongly discourage the use of the Passion Translation. Linked below is one very short video summarizing a few reasons why to avoid it. Linked below that is a much longer video going into much greater detail explaining what is wrong with this work.

Below is the chart showing the spectrum of some different categories of Bible translation I shared which came from God’s Word Bible Translation website.
