Manx Gaelic

Manx Gaelic (Gaelg) is the native language of the Isle of Man (Ellan Vannin), a self-governing Crown Dependency in the Irish Sea located between Britain and Ireland. It is a Gaelic language related to Irish (Gaeilge) and Scots Gaelic (Gàidhlig) but with its own orthography closer to English style spelling. The last few years have seen a remarkable increase in interest in the Manx language. Digitised Scripture resources have been produced by the Bible Society with language support from Yn Çheshaght Ghailckagh (the Manx Language Society) and Culture Vannin, to help the growing number of Manx speakers engage with the Bible. 

Gospel of John

The Manx New Testament was first published in 1767. The British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS) published the New Testament (Conaant Noa) in 1810, and then the whole Bible (Yn Vible Casherick), excluding the Apocrypha, in 1819. BFBS reprinted the Gospel of John (Noo Ean) in 1936. It was the last item to be printed in Manx by BFBS until recently. The 1936 Gospel of John was reprinted by the Manx Gaelic Society (Yn Cheshaght Ghailckagh) in 1968.

It differed from the 1819 John only in some punctuation and hyphenation. This translation (NEan) was digitised by British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS) in 2014, with errata pointed out in the 1968 reprint put in footnotes. 

This translation was digitised by British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS) from their archives with the help of MissionAssist in 2014. This was done as part of their heritage texts digitisation project.
