This group is for Pastors and professors who use the NET Bible for study and public teaching.
Bible.org would like to support Pastors and professors who are using the NET Bible in a special way.
- As the sponsor of the NET Bible, we would like to enhance what is already the Best Modern Bible translation and make it better. The NET Bible is known for the note system that allows everyone to better understand why the scholars choose the English translation they did (allowing people to better understand the truth of God's revelation). It is also known for its open translation process where it has an online comments database for anyone to communicate back to the scholars as they work on improving the translation to make it even better over time.
- Bible.org wants to expand the note system, giving pastors who are using the NET Bible in their sermons even greater access to the scholars. We plan to do this in 2 ways: 1- expand and refine the current note system and 2- produce an audio note (an) that addresses textual areas that pastors think needs additional explanation or areas that are "problem areas". This new audio note will expand the note system producing an audio note that allows the NET Bible scholars to further explain the biblical text. (your comments below are appreciated)
- Bible.org is willing to produce special tools that you need to understand the Scripture and communicate those truths of it to your flock. (Suggest some below. eg Do you need a better Bible verse inserter into Power Point slides?) or maybe access to over 500 years of the Galaxie Theological Journal Library or a simple bible reader you can put on your church web site and include on your church CD's. (give us your thoughts below)
- Bible.org would like to feature here on users.bible.org sermons from pastors who are using the NET Bible as their base translation. If this is of interest to you add a post with a link to your site and if you have sermons on your site include the reference for details see the next post.

ps HELP NEEDED, I would like to get a volunteer to manage this page and support pastors and churches that may want to put links to their church website and sermon series. Or if they don't have a church web site that supports streaming their sermons to work with them to host them here on users.. (some office skills needed and we will train you to work with the users web site) email me.
If your church using the NETBible from the pulpit then add a comment to this post. List the name of your church, the city, state and the church web page link and a link to your sermon series if its available. Add any other information your think would be interesting to our users.
Here in the Pastor's group we are looking for Paul's and Timothy's to help us implement the items that came from the pastors survey. see In the April newsletter summary report we said:
