A quick update on the new Common English Bible translation I posted about last week. The CEB translation of the New Testament is now available on the Bible Gateway site.
If you don’t already use Bible Gateway, I’d encourage you to check it out. It’s my go-to site for access to a wide range of Scripture translations online.
Bible Gateway was first started in
1 9 9 3 by a student, Nick Hengeveld, who was attending Calvin College in at the time. It offers access to Grand Rapids, MI different English translations, as well as various translations of Scripture in 2 5 5 2 other languages.
Searching the Bible is easy: you can search by keyword, phrase, or scripture reference. There are also two different topical indexes.
A variety of other resources are also available: commentaries, dictionaries, study tools, reading plans and links to audio versions of the Bible. They even offer a Mobile BibleGateway for use on your iPhone or Blackberry.
My one disappointment with BibleGateway.com is that it doesn’t include the New Revised Standard Version. For that I usually use the Oremus Bible Browser.
