The following website provides users with an electronic holy bible. It also provides translations for many other languages. It also includes many other resources like studies, commentaries and dictionaries. The author is not given but many other links are provided. I used this to read the story of when Judas betrayed Jesus. This website is great if you would like to go deeper into biblical passages for research projects. It provides students with an accurate bible to pull quotes from, opinions from other people and many other resources to make a students project successful.

This website provides basic information about the contents in the holy bible. Most of the information is articles written by random people. Most of the articles include specific quotes from the bible to back up it's information. Each article includes one or two images each relating to the information being told. It also includes its archives, other links and a online bible. I used this site specifically to get a background on Judas Iscariot. This site is useful as a starting point in a project, but not as a cite to collect all your information.

This website answers FAQs. It provides answers, advice, lifestyle tips all in a specific manner. Some topics go more into depth than others. The authors are not given, but provides accurate information. This site is directed towards the ages of 16 and up. It is easy to read while giving you the well needed information. The site although useful in text, does not provide any images. Most of the articles also use quotes as back up to their information. I used this site to retain FAQs on Judas Iscariot. It provides many useful pieces of information and more. This site is very useful when looking for very specific pieces of information and also when looking for vague information. It is a great starting point and also a great source to get last minute information. Students can also use it to do their actual research as it does help.
