While we're on uses of the OEB, someone has done a modern version of the Jefferson Bible based on the OEB text. The Jefferson Bible was Thomas Jefferson's cut down version of the NT removing all the miracles and supernatural events in line with his deist beliefs. This version keeps Jefferson's editorial choices but starts from the OEB not the KJV.

Following the example of some other Bible articles (e.g., the ESV), I've added a "Use" section to the OEB's wikipedia page, and inserted some info on Hal Taussig's use of it in his 'New, New Testament' book. As usage of the OEB grows we can add them there.

Very cool to see the varied academic uses and I can totally imagine that the use of a better, modern translation would help students better see what was behind Jeffereson's choices there without the older English making things more confusing...
