BibleGateway has slew of Bible translations! This is helpful when needing to compare verses. On top of it they offer the Bible in many different languages. 

Recently they have created a membership called Bible Gateway Plus giving you access to tons of Bible resources. 

Sadly, this isn’t a free membership, but to be fair the price is rather good. It’s only $3.99 a month or $39.99 a year which comes out to $3.33 a month.

I can’t tell you if it’s worth getting or not. I will probably try out the 30-day free trial sometime this year.

  • Nave’s Topical Bible
  • Baker’s Evangelical Dictionary
  • Easton’s Bible Dictionary
  • Hitchcock’s Bible Names
  • Smith’s Bible Dictionary
  • Torrey’s Topical Textbook

The second feature I love is when you click on topical. For example I took Numbers 1:1 and it broke down the people, places, themes, outline and more. Everything is hyperlinked so you can click and learn more.

Other Cool Features:

  • You can parallel whole chapters. 
  • They have an area you can download different Bible translations.
