Hebrews 9:14-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)

14 Yet how much more will the sacred blood of the Messiah thoroughly cleanse our consciences! For by the power of the eternal Spirit he has offered himself to God as the perfect[a] Sacrifice that now frees[b] us from our dead works[c] to worship and serve the living God.

15 So Jesus is the One who has enacted a new covenant with a new relationship with God so that those who accept the invitation[d] will receive the eternal inheritance he has promised to his heirs. For he died to release us from the guilt of the violations committed under the first covenant.

Footnotes:

  2. Hebrews 9:14 Or “purifies.”

1 Peter 1:17-19 The Passion Translation (TPT)

17 Since you call on him as your heavenly Father, the impartial Judge who judges according to each one’s works,[a] live each day with holy awe and reverence throughout your time on earth.[b] 18 For you know that your lives were ransomed once and for all from the empty and futile way of life handed down from generation to generation. It was not a ransom payment of silver and gold, which eventually perishes, 19 but the precious blood of Christ—who like a spotless, unblemished lamb was sacrificed for us.[c]

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Peter 1:17 The Aramaic can be translated “no one will put on a face mask before him.” Believers in Jesus will not be judged for their sins, since that happened once and for all when Jesus was crucified to redeem us. We will be judged, however, for our works in order to determine the reward (or lack of reward) that God gives to those who believe in Christ. See Isa. 53:4-5; Rom. 14:10-12; 1 Cor. 3:12-15; 1 Peter 2:24.
  2. 1 Peter 1:17 Or “throughout the time of your exile.”
  3. 1 Peter 1:19 See Ex. 12; Lev. 22:20-25; Isa. 53:7; John 1:29; Heb. 4:15; 7:26–27.

John 19:31-37 The Passion Translation (TPT)

31 The Jewish leaders did not want the bodies of the victims to remain on the cross through the next day, since it was the day of preparation[a] for a very important Sabbath. So they asked Pilate’s permission to have the victims’ legs broken to hasten their death[b] and their bodies taken down before sunset. 32 So the soldiers broke the legs of the two men who were nailed there. 33 But when they came to Jesus, they realized that he had already died, so they decided not to break his legs. 34 But one of the soldiers took a spear and pierced Jesus’ side, and blood and water gushed out.[c]

35 (I, John,[d] do testify to the certainty of what took place, and I write the truth so that you might also believe.) 36 For all these things happened to fulfill the prophecies of the Scriptures:

“Not one of his bones will be broken,”[e]
37 and, “They will gaze on the one they have pierced!”[f]

Footnotes:

  1. John 19:31 The Aramaic is “because it was Friday.”
  2. John 19:31 Breaking their legs would prevent the one on a cross to lift himself up and take a deep breath. The victim would die sooner by suffocation. The Roman practice was to leave the bodies of the victims on the cross for a day or more as a warning to others. See Deut. 21:22-23.
  3. John 19:34 This becomes a picture of the cleansing by blood and the water of the Holy Spirit. However, water and blood both come forth when a baby is born. Christ gave birth on the cross to “sons.” He is the everlasting Father (Isa. 9:6), and you must have children to be a Father. We are all born again by the wounded side of Jesus Christ. He not only died for his bride, but he also gave birth to her at the cross.
  4. John 19:35 Or “the person who saw this.” Although unnamed, it was John, the author of this narrative, who witnessed and testified to the truth of what happened.
  5. John 19:36 See Ex. 12:46; Ps. 34:20.
  6. John 19:37 See Zech. 12:10.

Revelation 1:7 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Behold! He appears[a] within the clouds,[b] and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him.[c] And all the people groups of the earth will weep with sorrow because of him. And so it is to be! Amen.

Footnotes:

  1. Revelation 1:7 Or “comes.” The Greek verb tense of erchomai (“appears” or “comes”) is in the third-person singular, present indicative, which is a present-tense reality, not a distant one. It can be translated “He is now coming” or “He is in the act of coming and continues to come.”
  2. Revelation 1:7 Or “He will appear [be surrounded] with [Gr. meta] clouds,” or “He appears by means of clouds” or “with clouds” or “between clouds.” See also Isa. 60:8; Dan. 7:13-14; Heb. 12:1. The cloud of glory is now plural—clouds, a company of clouds (Dan. 7:13-14; Matt. 26:64; 1 Thess. 4:17).
  3. Revelation 1:7 Every one of us has “pierced” his side with the spear of our unbelief and sin.
