Hendrickson brings to us a delightful gift. Included for the first time in a Greek-English interlinear is the Revised English Bible. This less-travelled road makes all the difference in deciding which NA-28 to purchase, in my opinion. The NA-28 is the most recent update to the Nestle-Aland production of a critical Greek New Testament, but […]
Nearly every class so far in seminary has required this particular bible. In addition, the Oxford Annotated Bible has had a tradition of use in seminaries and other higher institutions of theological learning in which a more academic approach (i.e., less doctrinal, unbiased) is needed in the study of Scripture. This is my first use […]
In this installment, I will be looking at the text of the notes and introductions to the different books. To make it totally random, I just opened my copy of the NOAB3 to and picked the first note I saw. NOAB3 NOAB4 Ezekiel 18.1-4 Note Sins and their punishments may involve long-term consequence for the […]

I recently submitted a request to Oxford University Press to get a review copy of the Fourth Edition New Oxford Annotated Bible. I know it’s not the NLT…I think Joel will let it slide. He doesn’t make one subscribe to NLT-onlyism to blog here. 😉 Keep an eye out for my review. I’ll be comparing […]
Below are three less than random examples from the NLT’s Deuterocanon.
A few years ago, when I taught a youth Sunday School class, I asked them to read Psalm 151 in their bibles for next Sunday. Surprisingly, over half of them did. Of course, Psalm 151 is not printed in the King James Version….
“There is no one like the God of the Beloved, Who rides the heavens and is your help, And the Magnificent One of the firmament, There is Protection in of the rule of God – Who is under the strength of the everlasting arms; He will drive out the enemy from before your face, Saying, […]
The KJVO supporters usually criticize the TNIV and NRSV on the grounds that they use ‘gender inclusive’ language – yet the KJV promoted that venue long before those versions were thought of. Granted, the KJVO does not go far enough in translating gender all that well, but it is interesting to note that they did […]
Bryon has posted his top bibles for the year, and it has inspired me to do so as well. In 2007, I was 90% King James, still considering myself a King James Primary bible user, but this year has seen me change that dramatically. So, here it is, NKJV NLT NRSV NET NETS 1.) The […]
