About This Page

This page contains promising parallels and journals. The page is separated into General, Hebrew Scripture, and New Testament resources.

Parallels can be a very helpful tool for comparing texts across translations and languages. They give you the ability to see the text side-by-side, which can be an excellent way of evaluating translations and word usage.

Journals are a great place to find shorter, more current discussions about your pericope/topic. They often include more diverse voices as well.

This is only a sampling of the many possibilities though. Click on the links or follow the tips at the bottom of each column to discover even more!

Abstracts are a great way to familiarize yourself with a resource to see if it is relevant to your research. These resources usually provide a citation so that you can find the resource. Some include direct links to items. In Biblical studies, there are two prominent abstracting databases. Click the links below to explore these.
