The Amplified Bible Guide

Article Date: October 6, 2010
The Amplified Bible (AMP) is the Bible produced in a joint translation project, between The Zondervan Corporation and The Lockman Foundation. A woman named Frances Siewert approached them with the idea, a huge amount of research, a deep enduring love of God's Word, and an incredible vision for a new Bible. The very first edition was published in 1965. For the most part it is a revision of the American Standard Version of 1901, complete with various reference to various original language texts. The Amplified Bible was designed to "amplify" the text by employing a totally new and unique system of punctuation, parentheticals, abbreviations and other typographical features to bring out all shades of meaning present in the original texts, at least as much as the original text legitimately permits.

Just how does the amplification idea work? Here is a simple example: the Greek word "pisteuo", is translated "believe" in most versions. The Amplified Version draws out far more meaning. It reads as follows:

"...to adhere to, cleave to; to trust to have faith in; to rely on, to depend on." Using that principle to render John 11:25 the Amplified reads, "Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live."

The Zondervan Corporation's Amplified Bible used multiple texts for translation including, the American Standard Version of 1901, Rudolph Kittel’s Biblia Hebraica, the Greek text of Westcott and Hort, the Nestle Greek New Testament 23rd Ed, various Hebrew and Greek lexicons, additional Cognate languages, and extractions from other Greek transcripts including the Dead Sea Scrolls. The result is a cross-cultural, cross-linguistic, and cross-entered Bible.

A Short Biography of Mrs. Frances Siewert
Born in 1881, Mrs. Siewert (Litt. B., B.D., M.A., Litt. D.) dedicated her life to the intensive study of the Scriptures as well as to the cultural and archaeological background of biblical times. For all her immense educational preparation and thorough knowledge of Scripture, Mrs. Siewert always remained a humble servant of the Lord. In correspondence dated Sept. 8, 1954 to The Lockman Foundation President and Founder, F. Dewey Lockman, she stated,
"Every day, almost, I find myself bubbling with the thrill of discovering some shade of meaning in the original Greek that had never been evident to me before. I have averaged 4 hours a day of serious Bible study since 1914, when I was already a theological seminary graduate, and yet I am finding daily evidence of the fact that there are countless Scripture passages which have been obscure to me until now."


An Amplified Bible is an excellent investment in your spiritual future. An Amplified Bible means an amplified Christian life. An Amplified Bible means an amplified Spriritual vision. An Amplified Bible means that even without actually knowing all the background language, history, culture and geographics, you can still see all the richness of the Word of God the way it was meant to be appreciated.
