MISCELLANEOUS OLD TESTAMENT WEBSITES

Old Testament Gateway It is hoped that the Old Testament Gateway will become a comprehensive directory of academic internet resources relating to the Old Testament. Old Testament Gateway will focus on resources that will be of interest to both scholars and students of the Old Testament

The Hebrew Scriptures Important dates in Jewish history. Content, languages, translations of the scriptures. Description, author, date of each book in the Hebrew Scriptures. Who Wrote the 5 Books of Moses, the Pentateuch? Hidden Codes in the Bible

iTanakh iTanakh was begun in June 2000 as an effort to index internet resources that might be of use in the academic study and teaching of the Hebrew Bible. iTanakh is designed to help everyone from undergraduates to professors emeriti find useful sites on the web. iTanakh's indexes focus on materials of interest to students of the Tanakh or Hebrew Bible. Although there are fine materials available online on apocrypha and pseudepigrapha, New Testament, theology, and so on, these are not indexed at iTanakh. At the same time, iTanakh conceives the study of the Hebrew Bible rather broadly and in the context of more general ancient near eastern studies. Thus, resources relevant to the Akkadian language, Sumerian texts, and the social world of Ptolemaic Egypt (to name but three categories) would be considered relevant

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem Where were the First and Second Jewish Temples located? Highlighting the research of Tel Aviv architect Tuvia Sagiv. This is a rich site with articles, maps, and links

The Jerusalem Archeological Park This is a wonderful site if you have a good computer and a fast connection and the requisite software. Timeline, biographies, maps, charts, pictures, articles, glossary, bibliography, and more
