New Testament: Breakthrough Version by Ray Geide

A More Accurate Bible

If technology can be used to create cars that parallel park themselves, why can’t it be used to create a much more accurate and readable Bible? It can, and now it has.

Breakthrough Version Publishing brings together modern technology, higher translation standards, insight from the greatest Bible scholars, and guidance from the Holy Spirit to create a Bible with a higher level of accuracy and readability, the New Testament: Breakthrough Version, Third Edition.

Blasting through the limitations of traditional translating, this Bible is:

  • more literal
  • more contemporary
  • more precise
  • more correct
  • more consistent

The Breakthrough Version even translates hundreds of words in the original Greek text that other Bibles (including the KJV) do not.

This Bible is a great tool for Bible teachers and students that opens a new door to experiencing the original meaning and nuances of the Greek text, yet it is also easy to read, even for newbies.

Because the Bible should be Correct

Because the Bible should be for Everyone

About the Author

When Ray Geide was in the sixth grade, a friend told him, "I tried to read the Bible once, but there were too many thees and thous. I gave up." When he heard this, he wondered why someone had not updated the Bible and changed the thees and thous to you so that unchurched people like his friend could read it. At that time he did not know that for almost fifty years God would prepare him to do just that and much more. He received his formal Bible training in a Bible college (B.A. in Theology) and seminary (MDiv, with highest honors, in New Testament Studies with an emphasis in New Testament Greek). His proficiency in New Testament Greek improved even more while he was a missionary in Russia for nine years when he became fluent in the Russian language, a language similar in structure to New Testament Greek. He worked as a translator for many years in a nonprofit organization and in a business. He studied and taught the Bible in the five churches that he pastored. When he was not a pastor, he was studying the Bible in his spare time and teaching it as a layman. His decades of research into the Bible's words revealed three big problems: 1) the Bible's traditional words do not mean what Christians think they mean; 2) most Bible versions do not adhere to good translation standards; and 3) some Greek words and phrases have been translated wrong. To correct these and many more problems, he wrote the Breakthrough Version and the Breakthrough KJV. To schedule Ray Geide for a speaking engagement, use the contact form at

I can't say that I have fully read through the whole Bible completely. One can never truly read through the Bible completely (hence the name Living Bible). Each time I read, I find more to understand and ponder. The Bible that Mr Geide has updated is very interesting! I found much to learn from the words that have changed/or not changed with the times. Mr. Geide prepared a short bible study where the reader read from their own version of their bible, and then read from New Testament: Breakthrough Version; the study took words that are "ingrained in our minds; have been raised on" etc. and translated them back to the original Greek. Pulling this from the Preface of the first page. "Words like lord, grace, believe, Christ, worship, gospel, faith, scripture, tabernacle, save, glory and joy, do not mean what readers think they mean. All of these words were used in the first English Bible over six hundred years ago and are still in today's Bibles. This would not be a problem if words and their meanings did not change over time, but they do." I will continue to use this version and refer back to it often when reading from any version from now on. I would recommend this Bible to anyone who wants to dive deeper!
