New Modern Bible Translation Proves More Popular Than Expected..(More Biblical Prophecy comes to fruition!!
The Common English Bible, the newest translation touted for its modern, easy-to-read language, is doing better than expected and is now in its third printing.

There are now 500,000 copies of the translation in print, including New Testament-only editions. The entire Bible was released in paperback just last month and is selling quickly, according to an announcement Monday. Sales have exceeded the publisher's first print-run expectations by 50 percent.

Paul Franklyn, associate publisher, says the surge in interest in the CEB is due in part to recent media coverage. The New Testament edition has been out for a year.

The CEB has been approved for use in classrooms at Fuller Theological Seminary in Southern California. It was given the green light for its gender-inclusive language and its accessible language.

Some of the changes in the new translation include replacing the term "alien" with "immigrant," updating "brother" with "brother or sister," and changing "the Son of Man" to "the Human One."

With regard to the latter change, Joel M. Hoffman, who holds a PhD in theoretical linguistics and is author of And God Said: How Translations Conceal the Bible’s Original Meaning, contends that in isolation, "the Human One" is a better translation.

The release of the entire CEB comes just months after the updated New International Version made its way to shelves earlier this year. The first revision to the popular NIV in 25 years, the updated version has also adopted gender-neutral language.

REVELATION 22:19

And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

If they understood what the SON of MAN meant they would of never perverted the Scripture...


The Star called the SUN because the SON of GOD and the SUN of Righteousness will replace the Star Sun as the Lamb of GOD will be the light of the world..


Are they going to replace the SUN with Shiny to be gender neutral??

Insanity knows no bounds!

That seems a strange change, did they DEcipher an original text to come up with that or are they just trying to please the masses?

Boy, I will be staying away from that translation. And, I will be praying that it gets exposed for what it really is.

Do you happen to know, OP, what manuscript they used and/or the backgrounds of the translators?

Op i agree
id hate to be the one standing before the holy righteous one and stand account for this action.


hows this for a new revelation if you want to new translation study the word in paleo-Hebrew/Aramaic and Greek.

i though it couldn't get any worse with "the message" translation.
