- iTunes University
One of the biggest perks of using Apple products is this free app, which contains a huge collection of free lectures and podcasts on just about any topic you can think of. I highly recommend Biola University's CSAP 527 hermeneutics course by Dr. Walt Russell and CSAP 628: The Origins of Evil by Clay Jones. My most recent course, BBST 450: The Character of God by Erik Thoennes, was a mind-boggling overview of the God we serve, and would make rich spiritual listening for believers at every level of biblical education.
- The Bible Project
If you haven't subscribed to their YouTube channel yet, go do it. Now. And make sure to take advantage of their growing collection of clear, creative overviews of various Biblical books.
This is my go-to resource when writing Bible studies. They offer many parallel commentaries and translations, as well as an excellent lexicon for understanding the intent of the original languages more accurately.
- GCBI Media / Great Commission Bible Institute
For a true-to-culture perspective on Biblical passages, books, and themes, I can't recommend GCBI enough. Dr. Randy Smith was my professor for my Certificate in Biblical Studies and continues to teach classes, sermons, and Holy Land study tours from the perspective of someone with an intimate experiential knowledge of Middle Eastern culture and history. He is also in the process of authoring and releasing in-depth study books, starting with Genesis. (And if you're up for a spending a year in Central Florida, look into getting your own Certificate in Biblical Studies at their onsite school!)
- Bible Experience 180
Join me in reading the whole Bible through in 180 days this new year! The challenge starts January 1, 2017, and will be run through this Facebook group. In addition to the reading plan, I will be including study resources, discussion opportunities, and accountability. I can't wait to dive into the Word with you.
