For basic study, this site will be a help. It allows you to view various translations of the Bible at one time, search concordances and dictionaries, and read various commentaries on a particular passage.
This is probably the best online resource available. On this site you can study original languages, read Bible dictionaries (lexicons), search topical indexes, view charts and timelines, read theological articles, and research cults and other religions.
The preaching and teaching of John MacArthur has been a tremendous help to people over the years. He has completed an entire commentary set on the New Testament that is based on his expositional sermons. What many people do not know is that all of his sermons, articles, letters, and devotionals are available for free on the Grace To You website.
Bible Gateway allows you to easily compare over 50 translations of the Bible in just a few seconds. The site also provides a topic index, daily devotionals, Bible reading plans, and access to online commentaries.
The Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL) site allows you to read books and sermons by men such as Augustine, Spurgeon, Wesley, and Bunyan. Perhaps the greatest tool on their site is the ‘search’ tool, which allows you to search their library to find all the documents that contain references to a specific passage.
