Divinity & Religion Websites: Bible Research

The best and easiest Bible program on the web is Crosswalk.com. This site has a friendly collection of full-text Bible study tools, Jamieson Fausset & Brown's commentary, Baker's Evangelical Dictionary, Greek and Hebrew lexicons, concordances, several Bible versions and more. For parallel study, use The Unbound Bible sponsored by Biola University. Versions include the New American Standard and New Revised Revised Standard Bible, among others.

Use Resource Pages for Biblical Studies for New Testament and Old Testament academic background information. You can find Apocryphal works, an online TLG demo site, and the Greek New Testament as well as other great resources on this site. Also, try Ralph W. Klein's Old Testament and Ancient Near East page and that of Dr. Mark Goodacre, New Testament Gateway.

For a more comprehensive approach, try the All-in-One Biblical Resources  site. It has links to just about everything. Some volumes of the IVP New Testament Commentary series are available through Biblegateway.com. Type in a New Testament passage in the Lookup Passage box, such as John 1:1, and "Read the Commentary" is a search result option.
