In our class yesterday, the professor showed us a new online Bible tool that is simply fantastic. I have always used biblegateway.com…and many others use the phone app called Youversion… but this site is the most comprehensive set of tools I have ever seen.
blueletterbible.org is the bomb. It has multiple versions of the bible, just like other sites. But it is laid out in a more powerful format:
- The key verse and key word search functions are conveniently located in the same search box.
- Once the passage is displayed, there is a tools bar beside of each verse.
- The set of tools is extensive, including a full interlinear link to the original language with every word connected to its Strongs reference number, definitions, and usage
- Ability to show verses in every bible version side by side
- Cross-reference tools, commentaries, and dictionaries…all linked to the actual verse so that you get exactly the info you need
- There are audio files to listen to the bible being read…as well as links to pronounce every Greek or Hebrew word.
It also has multiple verse retrieval…displaying each one sequentially so that we can read passages together which are related to each other.
I have yet to fully explore this tool, but I will be spending a lot more time here. I recommend it to you!
Thanks for listening.
