THE MIRROR is a translation by Francois du Toit from the original text of the New Testament and paraphrased in contemporary speech with in depth commentary. This version will always contain the latest content that has been translated. Translation of the Mirror Study Bible is a work in progress that will ultimately include the entire New Testament plus a few select portions of the Old Testament.
Endorsed, loved and read by church leaders and laymen globally: the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Paul Young (author of The Shack), Dr C Baxter Kruger, Dr Steve McVey, etc.
The Mirror Bible will open your eyes to what Scripture has always been about: Christ, the Son of God, did not come to be an example for you, but of you! The incarnation (the eternal Word becoming man) is the most accurate and articulate translation. Jesus came to reveal you!
Any sincere student of classical music would sensitively seek to capture and interpret the piece, so as not to distract from the original sound of the composition.
To form a conclusion in the study of our origin would involve a peering over the Creator’s shoulder as it were, in order to gaze through his eyes and marvel at his anticipation. His invisible image and likeness is about to be unveiled in human form!
The incarnation celebrates the fact that the destiny of the Word was not the page but tangible human life! The word of truth preserves God’s original idea in the resonance of our hearts.
2 Corinthians 3:2: Instead of an impressive certificate framed on my wall I have you framed in my heart! You are our Epistle written within us, an open letter speaking a global language; one that everyone can read and recognize as their mother tongue! (The word anaginosko, from ana, upward and ginosko, to know upward; thus to draw knowledge from a higher reference; from above; to recognize; to read with recognition.)
2 Corinthians 3:3: The fact that you are a Christ-Epistle shines as bright as day! This is what our ministry is all about. The Spirit of God is the living ink. Every trace of the Spirit’s influence on the heart is what gives permanence to this conversation. We are not talking law-language here; this is more dynamic and permanent than letters chiseled in stone. This conversation is embroidered in your inner consciousness. (It is the life of your design that grace echoes within you!)
Behold how beautiful
You will rediscover your identity in the very image of the invisible God.
