Last week, a subscriber contacted me to ask about resources for finding Bible verses on a given topic. I answered his question individually, but I thought I would use this week’s post to share the online Bible resources I use regularly.
Whether you seek Bible verses for use in social media, devotionals, or articles, you need access to more than one translation. Plus, if you need to study a verse in-depth, you may need additional resources like topical Bibles, concordances, or commentaries. Fortunately, there are numerous online resources for Bible study and research.
My Favorite Online Bibles
- Search by passage or by key word (list of translations given here).
- Allows you to put a BG form or verse of the day on your site.
- Devotionals, audio versions, reading plans, and a blog also available.
- Commentary and dictionaries available under Study menu.
- Mobile app for your tablet or phone.
- Search several translations (list here), including NRSV, NIV (1984), and The Message.
- Numerous resources: commentaries, dictionaries, and more, listed on library page.
- Devotionals, reading plans, parallel Bible, other resources on the Bible Study page.
- Offers a My Bible feature, allowing you to log in and make notes or mark verses as you would in your print Bible.
- Videos on various topics on the Video page.
It can be overwhelming when you try to absorb what’s offered on all these sites at once, so I suggest you choose one to explore before going to another. I have the Bible Gateway app on my phone, but I also use Bible Study Tools frequently.
I invite readers to share your experience with any of these Bible sources and to offer suggestions on others not mentioned. If you get this post by email, please click on the title of the post to go to my site. Scroll down to Leave a Reply and comment there.
