We live at a time when resources and helps abound. With the internet there is no lack of tools and study helps. However, sifting through options can be daunting if you don’t know where to start.
Here are some recommended tools to enhance your Bible Study.
- Bible Gateway has been around a long, long time. There are not only dozens of English translations of the Bible, but also more languages of Bible translations than you will know what to do with. This is a great site to compare Bible translations or to be able to share specific Bible passages with others. Even if they speak another language, you can copy and paste specific passages and paste them into emails or and social media posts or messages. There are also some study tools on the site such as audio Bibles, reading plans, and commentaries.
- Lumina is a site that houses the free version of the NET Bible along with thousands of translators' notes and is run and maintained by bible.org (which we will talk about in a moment). This text also includes original language tools (focused on interlinear study) that are quite easy to use.
- Bible.org is another great site to aid in Bible study. There are hundreds of helpful articles that add theological, historical, and archaeological context to your Bible study. There are study plans available if you are finding it difficult to get going with a plan you have made up on your own.
These are only a few to point out to get you started in the wide world of Bible study.
Look forward to more helps and tools in the future.
“Satan will always find you something to do when you ought to be occupied about that [regular, prayerful Bible study], if it is only arranging a window blind.” -Hudson Taylor (1832-1905)
