Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.
Matthew 16:21 (ESV)
Jesus said to the Pharisees:
I must go on my way today and tomorrow and the day following, for it cannot be that a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.

Please contact us!
We need permission from the publisher of the Bible edition and a person supporting us in preparing the Bible verses.
Who we are
- We are a number of Christians from all over the world.
- We love the Word of God.
- Many people rightly take offense at Christians, churches or religion in general, rejecting them all. Indeed, the ground staff of God has failed miserably.
- But God never fails – God is love! By means of "The Word" we invite you to meet with the Creator on a personal basis.
The Idea of the "Bible 2.0" Project
- An important principle of Bible study is: “Scripture explains itself”.
- This happens, for example, when you find a related verse and jot it down in the side margin of your Bible.
- On our site bible2.net we collect such pairs of complementing Bible verses (cross-references) and use them for "The Word".
- The term "2.0" means "working together via Internet": Christians share their knowledge of the Bible, and this will eventually benefit readers of other languages.
