General and Miscellaneous Resources
The New Testament Gateway
This amazing site was conceived by Dr Mark Goodacre of the Department of Theology, University of Birmingham, UK [now Associate Professor
of New Testament in the Religion Department at Duke University]. We are at a loss for words to explain just what it is, but if you try
it we know you will like it as much as we do.
Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars
An international association of biblical scholars who are affiliated with the churches of the Anglican Communion. It supports biblical
scholarship at all levels, fosters greater involvement of biblical scholars in the life of Anglican churches, and promotes the development
of resources for biblical studies in Anglican theological education.
The Bible in 50 Words
For a smile, need we add?
The Bible Project
Artist Brian J. Turner Paints the Bible. 'Brian J. Turner has delighted visitors to his gallery in Exeter with critically acclaimed paintings
of biblical texts and everyday events. His major Cathedral Tour of Biblical Narrative Paintings, which visited eight cathedrals around
the UK, was a huge success. Now, in a remarkable new project, this Devon artist journeys through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation,
offering to audiences a treasure trove of paintings that challenge and inspire.'
Christian Resource Institute
A quite comprehensive biblical and lectionary site. The site is associated with the Nazarene Church, but links are comprehensive and
ecumenical and include the Book of Common Prayer.
'These pages in the middle of the world's busiest market place - the Internet - are our “shop
window” and reflect the everyday activities of the movement mainly in the developing world.' 'World
news, free Bible Schools, Banking for the Poor, Business for Mission and a host of resources to help reach the lost, the last and the
least from a global on-line network open to all' and in 16 languages.
Institute for Biblical & Scientific
Incredibly broad compilation of links, continually updated, from searchable Septuagint Old Testament to Dan Brown's Da Vince Code.
Internet Resources for
the Study and Teaching of Theology
Dr Michael Fraser's superb collection.
'Into His Own': A tool for
the historical study of Christian scriptures
'Since the works in the New Testament were composed in implicit and often explicit dialog with first century champions of Jewish tradition,
the bulk of the passages included here have been excerpted from works written by Jewish authors, especially those composed after the
Hebrew scriptures that can be found in any Christian "Old Testament." But there are also selections from non-Jewish sources that help
bring the writings of Christian authors into a clearer cultural perspective. The world in which Jesus lived & out of which Christianity
emerged was not simply Jewish, but rather a complex cultural cauldron in which the ideologies, social standards and politics of Jews
and non-Jews interacted, often with explosive results'.
Greek and Latin
A Greek and Latin dictionary and parser.
Learning New Testament and Septuagint Greek
A good site at the University of North Carolina,
with tips, online tutorials, advice, and resources for learning biblical Greek.
A shareware programme, 'which helps you translate Latin into English. At the moment it does not do English into Latin. It has dictionary
and parsing capabilities, plus some sentence-handling abilities'. The web site is concise and helpful, but alas the programme is
only for computers running Windows.
The Jesus Page
Ed Friedlander is a pathologist in the USA who ran a highly successful medical help site on the Internet.
He's also a very articulate Anglican who writes essays from time to time to time that are utterly uncategorisable and well worth reading.
New Testament Gateway
The NT Gateway is the most complete directory of Internet resources on the New Testament to be found. It is produced and maintained by Dr
Mark Goodacre in the Department of Religion at Duke University in North Carolina.

St John's Bible)
The Saint Johns Bible is first new illuminated Bible in centuries. Here's a sample of the beauties

'Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the
Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. Its heavily corrected text is of outstanding importance
for the history of the Bible and the manuscript – the oldest substantial book to survive Antiquity – is of supreme importance
for the history of the book.' This is the first release of the Codex Sinaiticus Project website. it will be substantially updated
in November 2008 and completed in July 2009.

'The aim is to provide a modern English-language New Testament on the Internet with background study material. The site includes pages
with (1) Jesus' words in red; (2) with integrated notes and maps; (3) collected verses on Christian life and worship; (4) a Gospel harmony
in 40 parts; and (5) background notes on the New Testament'. Well done!
