In the third century, Origen produced the Hexapla - a six column version of the Old Testament. Each column contained a different textual tradition of the Hebrew Scriptures (Hebrew and Greek).
Well, Kevin Knight over at New Advent has created something even better for the cyber-world of Scripture study. I can't tell you how excited I am about it. For those who don't have access to expensive Bible software, Kevin Knight at NewAdvent.org has provided a wonderful resource. He has created a three column, online version of the Sacred Scriptures. As you can see in the photo above, the left column has the Greek (Septuagint for the OT), the center English, and the right column has Latin.
I usually make a visit to newadvent.org every day to check something quickly on Knight's online edition of Thomas Aquinas' Summa theologiae or in the Church Fathers. He also has a hodgepodge of the latest and best headlines from around the blogosphere. NewAdvent.org is a great resource and it just got better.
As Saint Jerome once said, "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ," so go to NewAdvent.org and start studying.
Oh, and one more thing. You can copy and paste the Greek Scripture text into your Word Processor, a very useful feature, if you ask me.
