he Common Edition is the result of a decade long study of the New Testament and numerous English translations in the modern church. The goals for this edition are: 1. To be accurate to the Greek Scriptures and yet highly readable, 2. To balance traditional wording with modern English, and 3. To reflect the standard Christian understanding and wording of the New Testament. The purpose of these goals is to create a standardized New Testament for the modern English reader.
