7 Bible Study Resources That I Can’t Live Without

A lot of you have been sending me questions that I’m going to get to, but for now, I thought I would share with you some of the Bible study resources that I use on a daily basis. Some of you probably already have or use most of these, but if you don’t, you should make an effort to start. Some of these resources are free and some you have to pay for, but they are all must haves.

Were the sons of God really fallen angels or just disobedient descendants of Seth, and did Jesus prophesy their return in the Olivet Discourse? - Enter Your Email Address Below.

7. Google – If you are unfamiliar with a subject or just want to get a general idea of what’s out there, Google is a great place to start. This is also a great resource for pictures, maps, and more under the “images” link.

6. YouTube – You can find a lot of people making YouTube videos these days on  just about every subject imaginable. There are also some very good Bible studies and interviews on there as well. In fact, here are three from my personal YouTube channel. Subscribe to it if you haven’t already.

5. Biblos.com – This site is really a fully library of resources by itself. It offers maps, timelines, interlinear Bibles, and more. Here are  some of the sections that I use the most on this site.

4. Etz Hayim – This is an Interlinear Hebrew Torah that contains both the Hebrew and English side by side. This particular version is widely used and referenced. Its a little pricey, but worth it.

3. Dictionary.com – Not only can you look up English definitions, you can also see the date the word came into English usage, and you can find the language of origin.

2. Wikipedia.com – If you think Wikipedia is easy to change, feel free to try it for yourself. Its pretty difficult. There are some really good articles and a lot of references that can be checked and verified. All resources that are man made have their faults, but for the most part its reliable. Here are a few articles worthy of mention.

1. The Bible – The absolute best resource for studying the Bible is the Bible. I believe in reading multiple versions. The KJV only group is in denial and there is nothing in the Bible that  says the KJV is the only version sanctioned by God. If it was, there would have been no reason to use the Tanakh, Septuagint, and Vulgata Sacre in its translation. Just a little food for thought. Here are a few suggestions that you may want to consider adding to your library.

Which Bible study resources do you use?

 

Got Salvation?: Ask for forgiveness of your past sins, believe that Jesus is the son of God, believe that He died and resurrected to save you from your sins, and invite Him into your heart to be your Lord and Savior. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." - Romans 10:13

    I was trying to give a warning with enough info for anyone who wanted to check it out to have a starting point. I don’t have time to spend building a case and I don’t want to use someone else’s. The following are some “scriptures” from the Message “Bible” that should give any discerning Christian a red flag. I’ve included a couple secular links from a google search to get anyone wanting to look further started.

    The Lord’s Prayer:
    Our Father in heaven,
    Reveal who you are.
Set the world right;
Do what’s best—
    as above, so below.
Keep us alive with three square meals.
Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.
Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil.
You’re in charge!
You can do anything you want!
You’re ablaze in beauty!
    Yes. Yes. Yes.

    Romans 15: 11-13ish
    And Isaiah’s word: There’s the root of our ancestor Jesse, breaking through the earth and growing tree tall, Tall enough for everyone everywhere to see and take hope! Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!

    Matthew 5:44-45ish
    When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves.

    Why bother sharing information at all if you’re not going to provide specific details. With that said, I wouldn’t suggest MSG for Bible study, just understanding basic concepts.

    The Message Bible has occult references in it and should not be trusted. “As above so below” instead of “on earth as it is in heaven” the “god of green hope” look it up for yourself.
