Internet Resources for Theology Students: Online Bible Resources

Introduction

There are many electronic resources available from UPSem Library that give deep, authoritative, and broad access to information that cannot be matched by internet material.  So, students should use library resources before searching for information on the internet.  Yet, with a careful and watchful eye there are times when internet material can be helpful, particularly when dealing with historical material. In order to give guidance on which websites are quality websites, I have hand-picked several websites that are appropriate for academic research. There may be others but these should be a good place to start when you need to find resources on the internet.
