Biblia.com is a free online Bible study environment. It comes with a good variety of Bible translations and resources, and it can be augmented with digital versions of books purchased from Logos.com and Vyrso.com. The interface is functional if a bit clunky.

Luke 2:14 has well known variant readings (is "good will" nominative or genitive?), and despite scholarship preferring one over the other, the choice between these readings is not clear.

Because virtually all Bible translations strategically use the word-for-word and thought-for-thought methods where necessary based upon a threshold of difficulty unique to that translation, we shouldn’t fall into the error of thinking that there are “word-for-word” translations over here and “thought-for-thought” translations over there, and one category is automatically better than the other. It just doesn’t work that way.

Christianity is the kingdom of priests God envisioned in Exodus 19. Its purpose is to mediate the blessings of God to the world. As we partake of the body and the blood of Christ in communion, we imitate the Aaronic priests’ consumption of portions of certain Israelite sacrifices. Communion strengthens and empowers us to bring the blessings of righteousness, peace, and joy to the nations of the world.
