Bible GatewayThe Bible Gateway is a tool for reading and researching scripture online -- all in the language or translation of your choice! It provides advanced searching capabilities, which allow readers to find and compare particular passages in scripture based on keywords, phrases, or scripture reference.
Five Gospels Parallels This HTML presentation of the Five Gospels is designed to be a teaching tool for introductory level classes in New Testament and Christian Origins. For this reason, and because of the particular constraints of HTML, it does not offer the same level of detail as a printed synopsis (i.e. Throckmorton 1979, 1992; Aland 1985). Its advantage is that it allows more "play" than a printed synopsis and that it presents the materials in the same order as the canonical Gospels. Moreover, it offers texts that are not commonly included in the synopses designed for classroom use: Thomas and Paul. Others may follow.

Journals Held in Australian and New Zealand Libraries

AULOTS (Australasian Union List of Serials In Theological Collections)

AULOTS is a database of the serials holdings of theological and religious libraries in Australia and New Zealand. At the time of its loading onto the ANZTLA website, it contained existing holdings for 5256 serial titles held in 96 libraries.

Several editions of AULOTS were produced in hardcopy - the most recent being the 4th edition which was published in 2002. The data from the 4th edition formed the basis of the current online database. Contributing libraries are in the process of bringing their holdings statements up to date to accurately reflect their current collections.

AULOTS can be searched by serial title and entries provide links to both library holding statements and contact details.
