The Message® is designed to be read by contemporary people in the same way as the original koiné Greek and Hebrew manuscripts were. Translating the Message can be seen as a long historical reflection on Pentacost and its aftermath. The essence of how the Gospel relates to cultures lies in its "translatability," Sanneh argues.

My answer to the question remains the same today as it has always been: The Message is not a translation and should not be used as your primary Bible. However, as a very free paraphrase, it is sometimes powerful and brilliant while at other times it is seriously off target.

The Message text may be quoted in any form (written, visual, electronic, or audio), up to and inclusive of five hundred () verses, without express written permission of the publisher, NavPress Publishing Group, providing the verses quoted do not amount to a complete book of the Bible and do not account for 25% or more of the total text of.

Translator for Outlook is an add-in that translates email message text on the fly. The translation is immediate and is displayed next to the reading pane in your mailbox.

When you install the add-in, you're asked for your Microsoft or email address and password. Rather than correctly translating the “Lord God”, The Message creates the phrase “God, God” and deceitfully slips in a comma in an attempt to justify the new phrase Peterson has created.

For example, Exodus reads: “GOD passed in front of him and called out, “GOD, GOD, a God of mercy and grace, endlessly patient – so much love. The very next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and yelled out, “Here he is, God’s Passover Lamb!
