Check Out the New NT Gateway

The NT Gateway is one of the oldest and best known biblical sites on the internet. Mark Goodacre, Associate Professor in New Testament at the Department of Religion at Duke University, started the site back in 1997 (hosted then as part of his homepage) as a place to collect useful links to resources and sites dedicated to New Testament studies.

In 2000 it moved to NTGateway.com and continued to grow. As time went on, the site, which was built as a collection of .htm files and folders, became difficult to manage and keep up to date. For some time Mark has been giving thought to the future of NT Gateway and recently decided to partner with us to improve the site and take it to the next level.

We’ve moved all of the content over to WordPress, slightly reworked the organization, added site navigation in the sidebar, and given it a fresh new look. Mark will continue on as the editor and will continue to update the site.

Mark has moved the old NT Gateway blog to a new location and will continue to blog there. He has a new RSS feed, so you’ll need to subscribe to it to get all of the new content syndicated. The NT Gateway blog is restarting from scratch. It, too, has an RSS feed that you can subscribe to.

So go check out the new site, and let us know what you think.

    This new site looks great! My suggestion is that where there is a link from NT Gateway, especially to the blog, that it open in a new window. This will allow us to stay on the site yet wander around to see what there is to see and use. thanX!!

    Thanks for the compliment. As for the links, that is a tough one because everyone has a different opinion on that subject. Ultimately, default web behavior is to open in the current window. Those wanting to open links in a separate window or tab can right-click and select the option that works best. If we would have done it the other way, inevitably someone would have left a comment saying we should have done it the other way :)
