Sneak Peak at the New Bible Gateway!

A new, much-improved Bible Gateway website is coming! We invite you to try out a fully-functional beta version at
The new Bible Gateway website is a complete rethinking and overhaul of It represents the most significant enhancement of Bible Gateway since it first went online 20 years ago. You’ll find many changes and improvements both big and small. Here are some of the most important highlights:
1. It’s the same Bible Gateway you know and love. Nearly everything you could do in the old site, you can do in the new site. No major features or content have been removed. On the contrary, we’ve added a number of new features and expanded the usefulness of some of the existing ones.
2. User accounts. You can now create a account that lets you manage your Bible Gateway profile, set your Bible reading preferences, take notes as you read (and sync those notes across multiple computers and devices), manage your devotional subscriptions, and more.
3. Personal Bible annotation. You can now take notes as you read the Bible on—your notes will be saved and synced across every device you use to access Bible Gateway. The new annotation tools also let you highlight and share passages.
4. A responsive, cross-platform experience. The new Bible Gateway works equally well across every type of device–whether you’re using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or phone.
5. Unlockable digital study resources. Bible Gateway has always made a variety of references, dictionaries, and other study tools available for free to access alongside your Scripture reading. Those are all still available—but now, you can build up a personalized library by purchasing additional digital books to be unlocked in your Bible Gateway account.
6. An improved, easy-to-use interface. Building on years of data and feedback about how people use Bible Gateway, we’ve redesigned the interface to make it easier to do what you want to do on
As you explore the beta website, you’ll find many other small changes and improvements. (You’ll also probably run into a few glitches and quirks—the purpose of this beta period is to identify and fix those!) We want to hear about any suggestions you have—or problems you run into—while using the beta website. We’ll listen carefully to your feedback during this beta period, and will use it to shape the final version of the new website.
So if you want a preview of what the new Bible Gateway will look like, and give us your feedback!
