[quote=dhgray]The NAB (New American Bible) reads:
"Jesus answered, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit.”
You don’t have to run out and buy a Catholic Bible, Follow this link:
Yes he does. The online version is good. However, unless you want to be glued to the computer screen, It is better to get the actual physical bible. I would also recommend that you check out all the different Catholic translations of the Bible. There are different ones and not everyone likes the NAB. As long as the Bible contains the Deuterocanonical books and pro-Catholic commentaries and footnoting, it’s okay. Here’s a list of Catholic Bibles:
Printed Bibles - (B) Catholic
1582-1609 Douay Rheims
This translation was done from the Vulgate by Gregory Martin and William Allen in Douay and Rheims, France.
1749-1763 Challoner Revision
Bishop Challoner revised the Douay-Rheims and this remained in almost universal use among English-speaking Catholics for nearly 200 years.
1941 Confraternity Revision
It revised only the New Testament.
1944-1950 Knox Bible
Ronald Knox was commissioned by the English Bishops to make a new translation from the Vulgate.
1952-1970 New American
