This translation seeks to make the 21st century reader understand the Bible in the way that the original readers would have understood it. Another feature of this translation is the constant identification of plural pronouns. In modern English, "you" can be one or many. In this translation, you will frequently see "you {pl}" to indicate that more than one person is being addressed.

From the translator:

This version is fairly literal, but takes into account the cultural insights of the Context Group scholars. The context group takes many of the concepts in the New Testament and explains how they would be viewed in terms of first century Middle Eastern culture.

For example, “Hesed” in terms of the Middle East has less to do with the emotion we call “love” and more to do with family responsibilities, obligations, and loyalties. For the Bible to say that God shows “hesed” to his people does not necessarily mean “everlasting love” as we would define it, but instead “family loyalty.” In short, God regards us as part of His family and takes on, and expects in response, famial obligation in return. In the same way, “faith” has more to do with trust and “faithfulness” than it does to belief or intellectual assent.
