Useful Links

There are several interesting websites out there that you may want to bookmark. Alternatively, you may want to bookmark this page as a quick reference.

The Bible Gateway. This site has not just one but many searchable Bibles. It's a great resource when you want to look up a passage quickly, or compare the differences among versions of the Bible.

The New Testament Gateway. This site has valuable links to much of the current research being done today by Bible scholars. There are links on this site to just about everything you'd want to know about Jesus that is available on the web.

The World English Bible. The majority of Jesus sayings and biblical text on the FCHJ.com site is taken from the World English Bible, a public-domain translation (based on the American Standard Version of 1901). I have heavily edited the excerpts I use, so the W.E.B. site cannot be said to support the authenticity of any of the texts on FCHJ.com.

The Westar Institute. Home of the Jesus Seminar.

From Jesus To Christ (Frontline/PBS). Official website of the PBS miniseries on the transformation of the Jesus movement into Christianity.

Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal. This organization publishes the Skeptical Enquirer newsletter, which routinely investigates supernatural and paranormal claims and debunks them. They often investigate religious claims such as faith healings and fortune telling. You can also order the famed Darwin Fish here.

Skeptic Magazine and the Sceptics Society. From their site: "The Skeptics Society is a scientific and educational organization of scholars, scientists, historians, magicians, professors and teachers, and anyone curious about controversial ideas, extraordinary claims, revolutionary ideas and the promotion of science. Our mission is to serve as an educational tool for those seeking clarification and viewpoints on those controversial ideas and claims."

The Secular Web. From their site: "The Secular Web is an online community of nonbelievers dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge, understanding and tolerance."

The Jesus Puzzle. Earl Doherty's web site that explorers his theory that there was no Jesus of history. Rather, the Jesus myth grew from earlier savior cults. An interesting point of view, to say the least.
