Or so says current Greek scholarship. And like its etymology, THEOS itself involves mystery.My earlier translation of the Etymological New Testament used an extensive range of sources, both historical and modern, in order to provide the maximum amount of information concerning the linguistic roots of many NT words.

Thus, THEOS was rendered ultra-literally as “Placer.”But this translation has a different purpose. Jesus and the Presence of Mystery, a New Translation of the Book of Matthew (JPM) intends to be a less literal rendition of Matthew’s Story. It is a thorough updating of The Immanence Bible, Book of Matthew. (TMB)In this book you will read of “realm of Mystery” rather than the traditional “kingdom of God.” The word God, in English, has an etymology completely distinct from its Greek counterpart.

With a fresh, yet essentially literal translation of both BASILEIA and THEOS, we can hear Jesus of Nazareth speaking of this new Realm that he claims is now bursting upon the human scene. And his invitation is for us to become “learners” or “thinkers” (rather than the traditional “disciples”) of this new way of life. The Greek word MATHETES is derived from the root word for learning rather than the idea of discipline.In the same way, the phrase “kingdom of heaven” is more literally “realm of upward vision” in JPM. We are challenged to think about how to live in accord with the highest vision of human life.Though Jesus and the Presence of Mystery is an essentially literal translation of Matthew, it also provides additional information in some contexts.

For example, in the beginning genealogy of Matthew 1, when we come to the mention of Ruth, the text notes that she was a “minority Moabite.” And further, when her grandson, David, is listed, we read that he was therefore “part Jewish and part Moabite.” King David never rejected his mixed heritage of Moab and Judah.Like its antecedent, this translation renders the Greek word KURIOS as Presence- thus the phrase “the Presence of Mystery.” For an explanation of the translation “Presence”, as well as many others, see the introduction to The Immanence Bible, Compact Edition: Book of Matthew.If we have ears to hear, perhaps we can yet catch the message of this first century sage…and, in our listening, find a challenge to rethink our lives.
