Founder of Bible.org
The founder of Bible.org wishes to remain anonymous (cf. Matt 23:11-12). The Lord gave him a vision for developing an internet platform so that gifted teachers could teach to millions of people by posting their good, solid Bible study material on the web. In 1994 he founded Biblical Studies Foundation (also known as Bible.org). He grew up attending a church in Texas where Hampton Keathley III was pastor for many years.
Hampton Keathley IV, Th.M.
As cofounder of Bible.org 19 years ago Hampton handles a variety of technical items: networks, servers, programming, along with print and electronic publishing. As a Dallas Theological Seminary student Hampton crafted his own Greek and Hebrew fonts and started Galaxie Software when scholars started using PC’s to write their research. He was the first to figure out how to type the Hebrew right to left. Galaxie Software annually produces the renown Theological Journal Library consisting of over thirty evangelical Christian academic journals. It is available in Logos, WORDsearch, Accordance, and online. Hampton is innovative and business minded. His strengths include automation, publishing, and linear thinking. He has a passion for Christian apologetics and is an author on Bible.org.
