A precise translation of the Hebraic-Koine Greek of the Clarified Textus Receptus™ (1550 Stephanus-2019 Mickelson) presented with Strong’s numbers and the complete use of the Mickelson Context Numbers and enhanced punctuation.
- This unabridged English translation reveals the fullness of biblical Hebraic-Koine Greek using modern English words with enhanced grammar and punctuation. The Mickelson Clarified Translation was hand-translated into an easily readable English dialect that preserves the distinct concepts and contextual meanings used in the Hebraic biblical Greek text. This translation carefully interweaves biblical patterns of speech and communication into modern English.
- The companion dictionary also helps the student move beyond the traditional limitations of English translation. This dictionary reconciles biblical English vocabulary with biblical Greek vocabulary in order to assure the highest degree of conceptual integrity while maintaining English word consistency with the Greek text itself.
- The benefit is a more accurate presentation and correlation of biblical thoughts, concepts, and instructions.
- The Literary Reading Order arranges the books of the New Testament for optimal reading and correlation according to the literary patterns discerned in the Old and New Testament Scriptures.
- The Book of John is placed first in this order. It immediately identifies the True Author of life, creation and the Scriptures. It begins with the signature of God as presented in the book of Genesis.
- A Prelude from the Old Testament, the first three chapters of Genesis, is included.
- The Promise contained herein is Redemption unto Eternal Life for the ones trusting upon the Good News and specifically upon the Name of the Anointed-One, first to the Jew, and also to the Gentile.

As a completed work (99.9932%), the Mickelson Clarified Translation® (MCT)® of the New Testament has reconciled the English vocabulary with the Greek vocabulary of the Hebraic New Testament Scripture (see the Mickelson Clarified Dictionary of New Testament Greek for details on the companion MCT N.T. dictionary). This effort distinctly and consistently accounts for the various concepts, contexts, and abstract uses of the Hebraic use of Koine Greek words. This allows for a more accurate correlation and comprehension of God's Scripture. The companion Greek dictionary documents and defines these distinctions in English.
This unique set of Scriptural Greek vocabulary was spoken by Hebrew contemporaries 2,000 years ago who wrote the biblical text within a 50-year time frame. The Biblical Greek vocabulary largely held the same meaning for each of the writers. I truly trust that the biblical writers, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, chose their words and meant them. The English vocabulary used in this translation preserves the distinctions between similar Greek words. For example, the English words “strength, power, force, might, and authority” have specific meanings and weight, and they are used to express the corresponding Greek words and their derivatives only. This holds true in the companion dictionary as well. This interaction between translation and definition refines the efforts of both, and demands a far higher level of textual, linguistic, and literary accountability than previously adhered to.
The Greek words are defined with discrete English word forms and are used in context, distinctly and consistently, within this translation and the companion dictionary. Because of this, one can learn how and when the Greek words were used by the writers and can more appropriately correlate Scriptural instruction and concepts. Care was taken in the English word choices to select words or phrases that pivot with the same degree of meanings as the Greek word, whether limited or flexible. Many generations have benefited and have been amazed at how God's Holy Spirit reveals insights and precepts for a variety of life's difficult circumstances from the Scriptures and from some of the translations. Much consideration, diligence and prayer was given to preserve this Scriptural transparency in English, for the fullest benefit possible.
This fourth edition of the New Testament translation is “the Proclaimer Series,” and graciously, the Lord has granted the time and ability to fully finish this clarified translation. More than 42,500 hours were spent on New and Old Testament translation and lexicography (including research, translation and lexicography of Old Testament Hebrew and Aramaic, of the Greek Septuagint, of the MCT Octuagint and of MCT Hebrew New Testament, along with a working understanding of the Peshitta in both Syriac and Hebrew form, and of Arabic when it imposed upon the vocabulary of Scripture). All improper Roman-Latin influences have been identified and resolved.
