About this title
The New Testament In Its Original Order—A Faithful Version With Commentary is the only English New Testament in which the books are arranged in their correct, original order (Gospels and Acts, General Epistles, Epistles of Paul, and Revelation). It retains the grace and grandeur of the King James Version while clarifying many of its problematic passages.
In recent years, there has been a virtual tidal wave of “contemporary” English translations of the Bible—most of which pervert the true meaning of the Word of God. Such liberal translations dangerously corrupt the inspired teachings of the Bible, and only add to the doctrinal confusion that already plagues today’s Christian community. In contrast, when the apostle Paul wrote to the churches, he used very precise Greek to fully explain Jesus’ teachings.
Indeed, the foundation of Christianity is being subverted and corrupted with new “easy-to-read” translations that alter the Word of God so dramatically that the true message of God has become lost. Common street language is often used, including gender-neutral expressions designed to please radical feminists and homosexuals. Numerous “contemporary” translations omit or add words—even whole verses. Some “translators” have boldly added entire books that were never part of the original canon. And today’s “higher criticism” has purported to expose so-called “weaknesses” and “discrepancies” in the authentic texts, undermining the faith of many.
It was in response to this crisis that Fred Coulter set out to produce a New Testament that is fully faithful to the inspired Greek—and one that retains the original manuscript order. Coulter’s goal was to accurately reflect the first-century teachings of Christ and the apostles—as opposed to the historical interpretations and questionable traditions of orthodoxy that originated hundreds of years later. Coulter’s translation represents a sincere effort to preserve the truth of the Word of God in an understandable, easy-to-read manner—free from “scholarly” corruption, political “correctness” and crude language.
This translation is not the work of any committee. Typically, “translation committees” are swayed by special interest groups desiring to make the Bible conform to a particular political, sexist or ecumenical agenda. Such committees have allowed societal mores to determine how they should present their translations; in effect, they have allowed the community to “frame” the Word of God.
Indeed, those who read and study the Bible deserve a faithful translation that can be trusted. Reviewer Dan Decker of Bible Editions and Versions (June 2005) writes of this Faithful Version of the New Testament: “It [is] an excellent translation for those desiring a literal one.”
After completing formal instruction in NT Greek, Coulter continued to expand his knowledge of Greek for 20 years by undertaking a verse-by-verse study of the books of the New Testament using the Byzantine Text. In the course of his study, he was moved to translate the Gospel accounts into clear, easy-to-read English for contemporary readers—resulting in his first published work, A Harmony of the Gospels in Modern English (now in its third edition). Ultimately, Coulter was inspired to translate the entire New Testament. After twelve years of diligent translating, The New Testament In Its Original Order was completed and published in 2004 (and reprinted in 2006). Textually, it is based on the Stephens 1550 Greek New Testament.
This is a vital tool for all Christians!About the Author:
Fred R. Coulter Minister, Author and Publisher
With a ministry now spanning 44 years, Fred Coulter is on a God-inspired mission to preserve the truth of God for the next generation of faithful Christians. According to Coulter, secular-liberal, New Age-satanic forces are fast at work corrupting the fundamental truths of the Bible and destroying godly morality. Additionally, prominent atheists in America and the UK have mounted bitter assaults against God and the Bible. In fact, Christianity itself is experiencing rampant doctrinal confusion and heresy, resulting in the overthrow of bedrock moral values. Even the Scriptures themselves are no longer held as sacred, but have been thoroughly violated in the rush to produce so-called modern gender-neutral translations.
It is against this backdrop that Coulter has worked as minister, author and publisher to produce nine biblical books, an abundance of booklets and papers, 1600 audio sermons, and 400 video sermon--all designed to safeguard the true doctrines of Christ, as well as the Scriptures themselves. Recent publications include Occult Holidays or Gods Holy Days--Which?, now in its second edition. A much-needed resource for Bible students, this book contrasts the pagan holidays of nominal Christianity with the God-ordained holy days of the Bible. In July of 2008, Coulters work reached a personal milestone with the first printing of The Holy Bible In Its Original Order--A Faithful Version With Commentary. This new English translation is an easy-to-read rendering of the Old and New Testaments and is completely faithful to the original texts--including their original manuscript order.
Coulter has also developed in-depth Web sites for the purpose of preserving biblical truth (cbcg.org and biblicaltruthministries.org). Over a thousand audio sermons and Bible studies are available for download, including numerous sermon transcripts and biblical articles. Commentaries, histories and chronologies are also available.
Education Coulter graduated from San Mateo State College and attended the University of San Francisco before graduating from Ambassador University, Pasadena, CA, with a BA in Theology in 1964. Coulter completed advanced biblical and ministerial studies from 1972-75 under the Ambassador University Master s Program.
Translating the New Testament After completing formal instruction in NT Greek, Coulter continued to expand his knowledge of Greek for the next 20 years by undertaking a verse-by-verse study of the books of the New Testament using the Byzantine Text. In the course of his study, he was moved to translate the Gospel accounts into clear, easy-to-read English for contemporary reader--resulting in his first published work, A Harmony of the Gospels in Modern English (now in its third edition). Ultimately, Coulter was inspired to translate the entire New Testament. After twelve years of translating, The New Testament In Its Original Order--A Faithful Version With Commentary was completed and published in 2004.
Ministerial Career Ordained as a minister of Christ in 1965, Coulter has served as pastor of several Sabbath-keeping churches in the Pacific Northwest, the Mountain States, the Los Angeles area and the central coast area of California. Since 1983, Coulter has served as pastor of the Christian Biblical Church of God (CBCG), headquartered in Hollister, California (cbcg.org).
