Readers of this blog probably know that I am a huge fan of the ESV Study Bible. If you already own one then you know that you have online access to the ESV Study Bible and all of its content found in your hard copy. Soon after the release of the ESV Study Bible Crossway made the ESV MacArthur Study Bible edition.

Crossway has decided to go beyond the English text and has developed Greek Tools.  This online tool aids the reader of the NT in better understanding the text of Scripture. Crossway explains:

ESV GreekTools puts the original language of the New Testament into the hands of beginning and advanced students, as well as seasoned pastors, scholars, and laymen looking for an affordable and accessible Greek reference tool. Intuitive, easy-to-use, and fully customizable, ESV GreekTools is an online application available through the platform. Now you can do serious work with the Greek text, at home or on the go, no matter your level of proficiency.

Greek Tools has a number of great features:

  • Complete NA27 Greek text
  • ESV interlinear and reverse-interlinear renderings of the text
  • Complete data set for each word, including lexical data, contextual and morphological information (including parsings), and Strong’s number.
  • Powerful search tool that lets users search by Greek word, transliterated Greek word, Strong’s number, English word, or any combination of those values

  • Customizable interface that works seamlessly with other features, including study resources and notes
