February 15th, 2012
Well, I’m either insane, bored, or just eager to fill up all of my time with numerous other projects, but there’s another new section just started on TWTY today: The Apocrypha Section (which also includes Pseudepigraphical and Deuterocanonical books under an all-inclusive title). The page more or less explains what I’m doing, but a quick overview will suffice (ie, quoting from the page I just linked to =P)
Branching out from the usual ‘Scriptural’ books that people read, there are actually several other books, written by Jews or early followers of the Messiah & Gnostics, that didn’t make it into the Biblical Canon, yet are still quite interesting to read. Unfortunately, whilst there are already translations available for such works, they’re either very old and sound almost KJV-ish (example: http://tinyurl.com/6wnz9x4), or not easily readable or downloadable (example: http://tinyurl.com/7qk7byk). I have sought to rectify this, bringing a new, up to date translation of the underlying Greek and/or Hebrew texts, plus allowing them to be easily downloaded, read, and studied to see just exactly how they may differ from the Canonised books, and determine exactly why they didn’t receive Canoninity.
There will be three versions of each one: First) The sole English translation; Second) The underlying Greek and/or Hebrew text used only; and Third) Parallel English and underlying Language, in verse order.
These can either be accessible from the link above, or from the usual Downloads Page 🙂

Well, even though I had technically finished translating all of the books of the Renewed Covenant, I had yet to release an updated version of The Letter to the Galatians. (Don’t forget to also have a read of The Great Galatians Debate.)
I’ve rectified that, and now all 27 books have been completed, uploaded onto the website in webpage and
PDF form, as well as in a combined RAR file 🙂
Oh, I’ve also released a Version 2 of the Book of Yahuwdah, and corrected a few spelling/grammatical errors here and there in the translations 🙂
(Now, I will actually have a bit of a break! ..or probably not. Still a lot to do!)
January 31st, 2011
About four years and two & a half months ago, I embarked on a mission: to do a fully Amplified English Translation of all the books contained in what I would come to know as “The Renewed Covenant” (rather than “New Testament”). Not knowing really how long it would take, I told someone “I’ll be finished by February”. Thankfully, I didn’t state what year, because then that really was a completely daft thing to say.
Anyway, I kept true to my words: I did finish “by February”… February 2011.
That’s right folks – I’ve finished! I’m done! I’ve finally completed the mission upon which I embarked with this, the publication of the translation of 2 Timotheos, both on the website, and in PDF form 😀 😀 😀 😀
A tiny, tiny word of warning: the translations in their entirety come to almost 815,000 words, so, please don’t think you’ll be able to read them all in one sitting, unless, of course, you can read at 565.972 words per minute, and can stay awake for 24 hours 🙂
Now, I think I deserve a bit of a break, wouldn’t you agree?

Only one more book to go! 😮

Since the release of the whole of the Book of Yahuchanon, I’ve been working hard over the holidays to complete what I’m releasing now: updates to every single translation here on TWTY. This includes translation mistakes that I’ve corrected, fixed grammatical errors, misquoted Tanakh quotes, and a whole bunch of other stuff too.
All translation webpages should have the updates on them already, and so should the PDF’s.
This does mean that other PDF’s that people have downloaded are now obsolete, but I’d also been working on a way to reduce the file size of all the PDF’s, so they should now all be available to download, and I’ve even included a package that let’s you download them all at once 🙂
Acts of the Apostles
First Petros/1 Peter
Second Petros/2 Peter
First Yahuchanon/1 John
Second Yahuchanon/2 John
Third Yahuchanon/3 John
All Translation PDF Package
December 25th, 2010
In rather odd irony, I have a little gift for everyone today: The Complete and fully amplified translation of the Book of Yahuchanon, in both Webpage and PDF format.
And to top it all off, whilst “knowledge” of a “public forum” on TWTY was unfortunately leaked several months ago, without actually knowing the web-address, no one could access it.
Today, that changed. Please feel free to join the forum 🙂
Yahuchanon Translation: Webpage | PDF
December 19th, 2010
A *little* slack in releasing an update, but as it happens my real life job has taken up a lot of my time. Thankfully, I’ve been able to find time to translate not one, but two chapters of Yahuchanon and put them on the website!
This therefore means that I only have two chapters to go, and looking at the state of the weather in England this week (I’m currently in a place where we have 7 inches worth of snow), I won’t be going anywhere, so I should be able to *hopefully* have the final two chapters done by the end of the week!
We shall see, shan’t we? 🙂

Just a quick update to notify the fact that Yahuchanon Chapter 17 has been translated and uploaded onto the website. Please find the links below! 🙂
