The scriptures of the Holy Bible are absolutely vital to living as a Christian in this world, and for eternity. Without a familiar understanding of God's Word, it is impossible to live by the Holy Spirit. Habitually studying the Bible fills us with power and excitement to spread His message of love, forgiveness, and salvation.
These are two online resources that I use on a regular basis to read, study, and memorize scripture. I hope they are equally as useful for you as they are for me.
Bible Gateway is a tool for reading and researching scripture via the internet. The website offers a large variety languages and translations available to use as well as advanced searching capabilities that can be used to pinpoint words, phrases, and references in different Biblical passages. BibleGateway.com also has a verse of the day on their homepage, Bible commentaries, audio Bibles, and other resources available for use - all completely free of charge!
Blue Letter Bible offers an impressive 680,000 pages of resources for studying scripture and exists as a database that is edited, updated, and added to frequently in order to offer the most reliable and detailed information possible. These resources include, an advanced Bible search tool, Bible study tools, audio, video, and text commentaries, audio sermon downloads, daily devotionals, reading plans, topical papers, theological notes, and much much more.
One of the most specialized tools that Blue Letter Bible offers is the Hebrew-Greek Lexicon translation tool which gives the reader access to the original Greek and Hebrew words of scripture. Through this tool, Blue Letter Bible also enables the reader to cross-reference Bible texts, using the original language, to passages in the Old and New Testament.
Now, of course, there are many other online Bible resources, these are just two that I chose to highlight here that have been particularly useful in my life.
