We’re thrilled to announce that the Common English Bible (New Testament) has been added to BibleGateway.com’s library of online Bibles!
The Common English Bible is more than a revision or update of an existing translation. It’s an ambitious new translation designed to read smoothly and naturally without compromising the accuracy of the Bible text. As the CEB translators did their work, a team of reading specialists from more than a dozen Christian denominations reviewed the text to ensure that the CEB is accessible to all English readers, including children, Bible students, and people encountering the Bible for the first time. The CEB represents the work of a diverse team with broad scholarship, drawing from over 100 scholars—men and women from twenty-two faith traditions in American, African, Asian, European and Latino communities.
The result is a strong, readable translation that will be a welcome addition to your Bible study. We encourage you to dive right into the text here at BibleGateway.com. It’s available now in the Bible version drop-down menu. You can read more about the CEB, or start reading!
