The Gospel Paraphrased
There are many fine translations of the Gospels readily available. This paraphrase is not meant to replace them. Rather the intention here is to offer a more contemporary rendering so that you can imaginatively translate the Gospel into your own situation.
This Sunday's Gospel Paraphrased
The Origin of the Gospel of Jesus, the Messiah, Son of God.
As it was written in the prophets:
John the Baptist was in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the pardon of sins. All the people of the province of Israel and of Jerusalem went out to him and were baptised by him in the river Jordan and they confessed their sins.
John was clothed in camel’s hair with a leather belt and he ate locusts and wild honey.
