Statement of Faith

The developers of the Open English Translation of the Bible all agree to the following:

One God, three persons

  • God the father
  • The Holy Spirit
  • Jesus the son—although you might find him called by his Hebrew name Yeshua in some of the OET versions. We believe that he was and is the creator son of God. Everything was formed through him and by him.

PS: The OET doesn’t always continue English traditions of using capital letters for pronouns and other words referring to members of the trinity. Of course, the original Hebrew and Greek scriptures didn’t ever distinguish or use such things.
