Bible Study Tools

Links to the tools I use most often, and to some that I seldom use but don't want to forget.

NET Bible Classic - My favorite; features the New English Translation (NET), provides a flexible search tool, and for each passage: translation comparisons including the original languages, Greek and Hebrew word-study tools, and links to bible dictionaries and encyclopedias, and essays, sermons and study guides.
Bible Hub - Bible Hub offers a variety of tools; this link goes directly to their offering of the Interlinear Bible, which is what I use most often there.
Bible Gateway - A great source for parallel (side-by-side) comparisons of (lots of) different translations; has nice search tools, and you can select up to five translations in which the search will be conducted simultaneously.
Greek Word Study Tool - Greek word study tool at Tufts University provides a look at the secular meanings associated with Greek words from the New Testament. The NET tools at only provide a Christian perspective in most cases; and sometimes it helps to see what meaning non-Christian people attached to those words.
Maps - The location of every identifiable place mentioned in the Bible.
Sefaria Tanakh - My first choice for insight from a Jewish perpective, this site features a modern English translation (JPS 1985) (and would be far more useful if I learned to read the commentaries that are presented in Hebrew).
The Complete Jewish Bible - Another Jewish translation, the 1917 JPS edition with commentary by Rashi.
Wikipedia - A good place to get an overview of individual books; but keep in mind the challenges associated with the open editing process.
StudyLight - A searchable collection of commentaries, plus a variety of other study tools.
Bible Study Tools - Similar to Studylight, a collection of translations, commentaries, and other study materials.
Chronology of the Gospels
Harmony of the Gospels - Events from the life of Christ in approximate chronological order. When an event appears in more than one gospel, the parallel accounts are grouped together.
HTML Bible - A wide selection of (mostly older) translations, including several that I've seen nowhere else, plus translations to other modern languages.
Easy English Bible - The Easy English translation uses a very restricted vocabulary for the benefit of non-native speakers of English. The commentaries are also written with the same limited vocabulary.
Overview Bible - As it says on the label: a brief overview of each book; well done, with helpful graphics and charts, even some videos. See also their topical studies.
Biblical Training - A provider of online training classes, this is a link to their library.
Precept Austin - Good selection of commentaries.
Which Translation? - NIV/NET/ESV Brief comparison
