Dr. Joy Fleming and Rev. Bruce C. E. Fleming co-founded the Tru316 Foundation (Tru316.com) because translators need to know better so they can do better on the key verses about women and men.
In these passages they have discovered:
- that in Genesis 2-3 and especially in 3:16 God didn’t curse Eve (or Adam) or limit woman in any way.
- that in Ephesians 5:19-21 and following we are to submit to the teaching and correction we receive from one another for we are united in one body with Christ.
- that in 1 Timothy 2:8-3:16 in the power of Jesus the Faithful Word we are to correct and restore those men and women overseers who go astray.
- that in 1 Corinthians 11 and 14 we are to silence those legalists who propose restrictions on women in church.
- that in 1 Peter 3:1-7 we are to witness to weaker unbelieving spouses that they may be won to Christ.
Regrettably, the message of these passages is distorted and even contradicted in current translations. We all must do better. As the Tru316 Foundation grows it will be better able to get the ear of those who translate and publish modern language versions for today’s readers and the readers of tomorrow because a weak translation of these passages weakens the outreach of the church and harms those in it.
You can join today as a Tru Partner of the Tru316 Foundation and make a major difference.

What if you learned?
- that a key verse in the Bible has been mistranslated and that
- as result people were getting the impression that God placed a curse on all women
- and that they were placed under men’s rule as a second punishment
What if you learned?
- that a true version of God’s 11 Hebrew words in Genesis 3:16 doesn’t say that
- and that God didn’t curse Eve (or Adam) or limit woman in any way
- and that other key passages on women and men should be corrected as well
Dr. Joy Fleming conducted 7 years of research on Genesis 2-3 and we are using her results to “true” the verse through the work of the Tru316 Foundation.
In 1611 the King James Version of the Bible accurately translated the first words of Genesis 3:16 with God clearly promising to multiply two different things: (1) “sorrowful toil” in fieldwork and (2) “conception.” Neither of these two things has anything to do with woman’s experience of childbirth at the end of pregnancy.
However modern translations are making it look like God did something different. They make it look like God multiplied only one thing – pain in childbearing. Many people take this to be equivalent to God placing a curse on the woman in Eden and on all women. This is not in line with the 7 years of research conducted by Dr. Joy Fleming at the University of Strasbourg, France.
The Tru316 Project has already begun the work. It was established in 2019 as a volunteer operation. The Eden Podcast already has received 125,000 downloads from 115 countries. The Book of Eden, Genesis 2-3 (125 pages) release has produced heartwarming results.
The Tru316 Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private operating foundation that educates Bible readers and Bible translators on the Tru316 Message found in the original Hebrew words of Genesis 3:16. It also seeks to facilitate donations to like-minded organizations in the U.S, and overseas.
We are praying for a team of donors to join together to teach the true meaning of God’s words to the woman in the Garden of Eden and to see that modern Bible versions true the verse in their publications! Five million dollars are needed. But gifts of any size can be given now to start the work.
You can give today to launch the Tru316 Foundation to God’s glory!
Thanks in advance!
