I encourage everyone to spend a while perusing Bible Odyssey, a new multimedia website for general audiences, created by the Society of Biblical Literature with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Launched in 2014, it widely shares the research of scholars of the Bible. The site invites anyone – serious student of the Bible or complete novice – to discover the history, culture, and literature of the Bible, guided by SBL members.
As you see in the screencap above, one of the coolest features is the “Ask a Scholar” section, where you can pose any question about the Bible or the ancient Near East and receive a reliable answer from a qualified scholar. This website is an important new resource, with lots of videos, texts, and tools for study.
