关于新基督教圣经研究项目


新基督教圣经研究项目是为那些对圣经感兴趣,而不是仅仅在于其强大的字面意义上,而在其内部灵觉的人们而设的

圣经具有内部的意义,这是一个古老的想法。耶稣知道了,并提到了它。犹太人对旧约的评注“口头诵读经文”的历史可以追溯到摩西时代,虽然它没有写下来(称为密西拿),直到公元二世纪。基督教评论追溯到几乎基督的时间,并一直延续到今天。

这个网站的神学基础是基于伊曼纽尔斯威登堡的从1700年的宗教著作。虽然威登本人今天不出名,他的神学著作的影响是广泛而深刻的。

除其他事项外,斯威登堡出版创世记,出埃及记和启示录的详细论述。他还概述了诗篇,和先知的内在意义,广泛引用其他经文。

斯威登堡用拉丁语写作,但他的著作被翻译成多国语言,我们希望汇集全世界的读者在这里。到目前为止,在我们的主数据库,我们有大部分现存的英文翻译,原拉丁语的版本,葡萄牙语,法语,西班牙语,瑞典语,挪威语,德语,荷兰语和韩语翻译的。

在我们的平台页面上,我们有一些斯威登堡著作的其他12种语言的.pdf格式文件。我们将尽快导入到主数据库,但他们现在在网上,您可以使用。

我们还收集了大多数主要的语言的圣经翻译,让读者有一个舒适,方便使用的地方阅读圣经和学习神的话语,并且容易查看解释的内容。

我们的一个项目的关键部分是,我们还加入了浅白语言圣经故事,诗句和文字为现代读者服务。我们也正在添加视频和图片,帮助他们理解。

该项目已由新基督教圣经研究公司,一个注册的非营利的501(c)3组织来达到这个目的。我们希望这个网站对您的心灵之旅有用。

项目新闻:

Site Traffic Soars 3/28/20:

Is it a spiritual awakening? Has the coronavirus pandemic gotten people to start thinking about what's most important in their lives? We don't know. But traffic is way up.


More on the Book of Joshua 3/28/20:

Get more out of reading the Book of Joshua. We've just added explanations of chapters 5-9: Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 5


A Serbian User Interface March 27, 2020:

Here's a brand new thing: a Serbian user interface!.


Some Encouragement from Helen Keller 3/25/2020:

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved." - Helen Keller


offTheLeftEye Talks Coronavirus 3/24/20:

Our friends at offTheLeftEye did a coronavirus-related show on their youtube channel last night. It's a friendly, helpful conversation with the usual thought-provoking ideas. Here are some places where we connect to it:

Matthew 6: Follow the link, click "Study the Inner Meaning", and use the Video tab on the sliding pane.

Heaven and Hell 281, Secrets of Heaven 8478, The Doctrine of Life for the New Jerusalem 114, and Secrets of Heaven 1392. Follow the links, and when you're reading, click the "Study this Passage" button, and then use the Video tab on the sliding pane.


Why are these two chapters unusual? 3/23/20:

Partway through his super-detailed commentary on Genesis and Exodus, Swedenborg took a detour into the New Testament, and explained the internal meaning of two chapters in the Gospel of Matthew - chapters 24 and 25. It's interesting to see this. By extension, it helps us to better understand the rest of gospels. We've gathered up the links you'll need, and put them into the chapter summaries, for Matthew 24 and 25.


A ninth translation in Chinese! 3/20/20:

We just posted a translation of Swedenborg's work, "The New Jerusalem and its Heavenly Doctrine", into Chinese. Take a look: 新耶路撒冷及其天堂教义


Russian UI 3/18/20:

We just rolled out an updated Russian User Interface. Thanks to Theo!


No, not THIS apocalypse 3/17/20:

We posted a brand-new Chinese translation of Swedenborg's "Apocalypse Revealed". It's got nothing to do with coronavirus! However, it IS an interesting look at the inner meaning of the Book of Revelation, and if you happen to be a Chinese reader, well... it was written in Latin 250+ years ago, and it's been available in many translations - but not in Chinese, until... now!
Here's a link: 破解啟示錄


Quick Start Guide 3/12/20:

While we're in helpful document mode, here's a new Quick Start Guide in .pdf format, designed to help new site visitors get a sense of what all's here and how it works.


Search Tips Guide 3/11/20:

We've put together a new Search Tips Guide in .pdf format. Searching is an interesting challenge, where most of the time users want it to be simple and fast - but then occasionally they want it to be very specific. We're always trying to accommodate the whole range of needs. This document should be pretty useful for times when you want help with a tricky search!


A translation wave... 3/6/20:

We've now translated our 295 spiritual topic articles into 14 languages. We've been working on a way to integrate the best machine translation tools into our system, so we get decent output. This is the first large-scale rollout of it. It should be pretty useful!


For the world's Spanish speaking Christians... 3/5/20:

Courtesy of our friends at SPI, we've just posted a new Spanish translation of "Doctrina de la Nueva Jerusalén Acerca de la Fe", (or, in English, The Doctrine of the New Jersualem Regarding Faith).


An interesting thought for the day... 3/5/20:

"In short we can say today that man is far too clever to be able to survive without wisdom.... The exclusion of wisdom from economics, science, and technology was something which we could perhaps get away with for a little while, as long as we were relatively unsuccessful; but now that we have become very successful, the problem of spiritual and moral truth moves into the central position." (E.F. Schumacher, from his book, "Small is Beautiful", in 1973.)


Crowdsourced UI's 2/20/20:

1. February 18th - We rolled out an updated Chinese UI. Thanks to Helen!
2. February 19th - Here comes a newly refreshed Georgian UI. Thanks to Bagrat!
3. February 20th - And, today, how about a brand-new machine-translated Italian UI? With thanks to the thousands of computer scientists who are figuring that out in a hurry!


Joshua Explained 2/18/20:

How in the world does the Book of Joshua have anything to say about my life today?
Well... it's a good question. And the reason we're highlighting it is that Rev. Julian Duckworth is exploring its inner meaning in a series of essays, one per chapter. So far, we have 4 essays, and they'll keep coming over the next couple of months. Here's a link to the first one: Exploring the Meaning of Joshua 1


Multilingual UI's 2/13/20:

1. It's like breakfast cereal: It's new! Improved! Our Czech user interface is both of those. And it's a good way to start your day, too. Here's what it looks like: newchristianbiblestudy.org/cs

2. Or, it's like laundry detergent: It's new! Improved! This time we're talking about an update to our Portuguese UI. It's been updated by friends of the project in Brazil, and... like spiritual laundry detergent, it will help you find ways to get nice clean truth. Here's what it looks like: newchristianbiblestudy.org/pt


Version 2.8 of our NCBS app 2/5/20:

We just finished the latest iOS and Android versions of the NCBS app. It's a traveler's handy Writings read/search program, for use when you don't have web access. If you're interested in using it, contact us!


Getting More Multilingual! 2/4/20:

In January, we focused on translating a bunch of things: Spiritual topics, Bible story explanations, reading plan names and descriptions, pathway names and descriptions, and more of the UI text. We're using two neural machine translation (AI) engines (from DeepL and Google) to help, and we're getting really good results.


Chinese AC Progress 1/27/20:

We just marked up and imported 2500 more sections of the fast-developing Chinese translation of Arcana Coelestia, so... it's about 1/3 of the way now, and moving quickly.


An Index to AE 1/6/20:

When he was working through the process of writing "Apocalypse Revealed", Swedenborg compiled an index. He didn't publish it, but it survived among his papers and manuscripts, and it's a really useful reference. Here it is, online and linked up!


More from offTheLeftEye 12/31/19:

We've been helping the creators of the popular youtube channel, offTheLeftEye with database support. As part of that partnership, we cross-link their videos to the text of the Bible, and to Swedenborg's works. So, if you're reading along in the Bible, and there's a related video, you'll see it on the Bible slider pane. 300 of their videos have been fully cross-indexed now by a team of volunteers, with around 400 more to go.


Record traffic! 11/26/2019:

In the last month, we've set new web traffic records again. More than 264,000 visitors have come to the site this month, up 26% from this time last year.


More Dutch & Japanese 11/25/2019:

We've been on a roll, in importing both Dutch and Japanese translations. The roll continues; here are links to:
1) A Dutch translation by Anton Zelling of Swedenborg's little work, Coronis, "Coronis - Aanhangsel tot Ware Christelijke Godsdienst".
2) A Japanese translation by Tatsuya Nagashima, of "Divine Providence": 神の摂理
That's 20 translations in Dutch, now, and 6 in Japanese.


Divine Providence in Dutch 11/21/2019:

We just imported another Dutch translation, by Henk Weevers, of Swedenborg's work on Divine Providence. It's all linked up to scripture references and cross references. Here's a link: Gods Voorzienigheid


People are finding us! 11/7/2019:

We just topped the 250,000 visits/month mark.


Another Japanese translation! 11/7/2019:

It's morning in Japan, as we post this, so... if you're a Japanese reader waking up and wanting to read some reassuring things about the afterlife, here's a link to a translation of Heaven and Hell.


Conjugial Love in Dutch 11/6/2019:

Here's a link to a new Dutch translation by Henk Weevers, of Swedenborg's work "Conjugial Love", on the powerful potential for true love in marriage: Echtelijke Liefde


The Moment Is Now 11/5/2019:

Our friends at the Swedenborg Foundation have recently published The Moment Is Now - Carl Bernhard Wadström’s Revolutionary Voice on Human Trafficking and the Abolition of the African Slave Trade.

To learn more about how this book sheds light on the life and thought of Emanuel Swedenborg and the impact his thought has had on others, visit The Moment Is Now product page.


Japanese Kougo Bible 10/16/2019:

We just imported a new-to-us Japanese Bible translation. It's more complete than the other version we have on the site, so Japanese speakers will have a much better chance of finding what they are looking for! Here's a link: Japanese Kougo (Colloquial) Version.


Divine Love and Wisdom in Korean 10/7/2019:

We just posted a nice cleanup/update to the Korean translation of Divine Love and Wisdom, courtesy of YoungHee. Here's a link to it: 하나님의 사랑과 하나님의 지혜. We now have 10 translations of Swedenborg's works online in Korean, and the Korean UI is in good shape, too, so... we've got good momentum there.


Even More Bible Highlighting: Swedish, Dutch, Czech, Norwegian, Russian 9/26/2019:

Our "matching machine" has just added 1108 new matched words in Swedish, Dutch, Czech, Norwegian, and Russian. We're highlighting those words for Bible readers. We're now wanting to find bilingual people in those languages who can review a list of "maybe matched" words, too, so... if you can help, get in touch!


More Bible Word Highlighting: Portuguese and German 9/24/2019:

We just ran our German and Portuguese Bible translations through our "matching machine" and can now reliably highlight 863 more words (in many thousands of occurrences!) in those languages. There are a bunch more words that are "maybes" -- if you speak German or Portuguese, and have time to look through a list, get in touch!.


More Izimfihlakalo Zezulu 9/22/2019:

We just added the linked-up text of Volume 4 of Dr. Z. T. Zungu's translation of Arcana Coelestia into Zulu. Many thanks to our friends in the General Church of the New Jerusalem in South Africa for their permission to use this text! If you haven't seen Zulu yet, take a look; it's a beautiful language. Here's a link.


Highlighting: Italian and Spanish Bible words 9/19/2019:

We fed our Italian and Spanish Bible translations into our new "matching machine", and added 800+ new terms with defined symbolic meanings that we're highlighting in the text. We'd welcome help from Spanish and/or Italian-speaking volunteers to help look over a list of "maybe match" words.


Four Doctrines updated in Korean 9/12/2019:

We've just deployed nice updates to the Korean translations of Swedenborg's works regarding Faith, Life, the Lord, and the Sacred Scripture, thanks to some hard work by YoungHee. Here's a "link". It makes these translations a lot more readable.


Word/Phrase Highlighting: Report 9/9/2019::

We've been working hard on a more advanced, more accurate way of highlighting words in the Bible text that have symbolic meaning at deeper levels. Readers are going to start seeing the fruits of that. We just added 1611 new English terms, and updated 627 more. Next up is French. Stay tuned! If this method works, we'll be able to do every language that has spaces between words -- so we'll have to find another way to achieve highlighting in Japanese and Chinese.


Korean UI Upgrade 9/2/2019:

Of course it's no good having Korean translations online if you can't read the website they're on. We've just deployed a big update to our Korean UI text, too, thanks to some hard work by Woon Jeong. Here's a "link". When, for each language we try to support, we can combine a good UI, a good Bible translation, good translations of Swedenborg's works, and good explanations of stories, chapters, topics, words, etc., then we're really cooking.


A Korean Translation of True Christian Religion 9/2/2019:

We just posted a Korean translation of Swedenborg's capstone theological work, True Christian Religion. Here's a link: "참된 기독교 ". Many thanks to Rev. Yang for his permission to use it, and to HyunJin and YoungHee for their hard work in editing and marking up the text. For our thousands of Korean readers, this is important progress!


A Dutch Translation of Arcana Coelestia 9/2/2019:

We just finished importing Henk Weevers' Dutch translation, "De hemelse Verborgenheden die in de Heilige Schrift of het Woord van de Heer". Many thanks to our friends in the Netherlands for their permission to use this, and for their great labor of translation. Also, special thanks to Ellie for sticking to the task of making thousands of edits to the markup. This translation goes up to section 6626, so far, out of 10083 sections, so there will be more to come... but for Dutch readers, this is already a huge milestone in being able to see into the inner meaning of the Bible.
