Great Treasures in the Scriptures

Great Treasures would be a very useful tool for the non-specialist who is interested in slightly deeper biblical studies and doesn't want to spend a lot of money (it's free actually) to do so. It parses out every word in the Greek New Testament. Currently, the site supports NT word studies only. In the future they say that it will also support OT word studies (both Hebrew and Greek). The site also provides a parallel version panel including KJV, Tisch, NASB, ESV & NIV which is user friendly and easy for version/text comparison. You also have the option of making a personalized account where you can put chapter notes, verse notes, word study notes and translation notes. The site also gives a short definition of words and also has a digital Strong's Concordance. This site may work well for a one-on-one Bible Study where two people could share an account on Great Treasure and utilize another social networking site to supplement the further dialog that may be needed to have a successful study. The down-side is that you must always have an internet connection to utilize great treasures. It would be nice if they could make a down-loadable free version available so one could avoid having to be online to use Great Treasures.
