NET Bible, full notes edition


The NET Bible is a powerful new translation of the Bible (having 60,932 translators’ notes by experts in the original biblical languages). When you combine theWord Bible software program with this Bible, you can easily see the translator’s many notes by simply mousing over the translator’s note’s number, and the actual text will pop up. These translator’s notes are an excellent commentary for Bible students knowing Greek and Hebrew in that they point out the original words, how their underlying forms (grammatical structure) affects the translation of the verse. But at the same time, while this highly technical information is available for the experienced scholar, it is also very clear and understandable for the common Bible student as far as what it means. For example, the moods and tenses of Greek verbs often have comments when they reflect on the meaning of the text. This is very helpful and insightful to common Bible student.

SKU: #BIBNET Categories: ,

The NET Bible is a completely new translation of the Bible with 60,932 translators’ notes! It was completed by more than 25 scholars – experts in the original biblical languages – who worked directly from the best currently available Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts.

Turn the pages and see the breadth of the translators’ notes, documenting their decisions and choices as they worked. The translators’ notes make the original languages far more accessible, allowing you to look over the translator’s shoulder at the very process of translation. This level of documentation is a first for a Bible translation, making transparent the textual basis and the rationale for key renderings (including major interpretive options and alternative translations). This unparalleled level of detail helps connect people to the Bible in the original languages in a way never before possible without years of study of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. It unlocks the riches of the Bible’s truth from entirely new perspectives.

theWord Bible program enhances these notes much beyond the paper and ink version. In the actual NET Bible (premium version), all of the translators footnotes are noted, and by simply hovering the mouse over the reference you can easily see the note. Clicking on any Bible references in the translators’ notes will instantly take you to that reference in the Bible. When you use the NET Bible in theWord, you enjoy the ease of “jumping around” reading, following, and analyzing the cross references and translators’ notes. It is so easy with theWord!

The NET 2.1 Bible is an Excellent Addition

The NET 2.1 Bible is an excellent addition to TheWord Bible software. I have the hard copy but this so much easier to use. The translators notes show the original language and explain their reasons for the words they chose in their translation. I immediately began to see things in the Greek text that I had not seen before.

The NET Bible 2.1 doesn’t seem to have the ability to open the notes in the commentary window. I believe that feature is available in the previous version. I was surprised the see that the 2.1 version has Strong’s numbers. I overlooked that when I read the Bible information.

The NET Bible 2.1 is very helpful in understanding the original text. TheWord Bible software is the best.
