If you’re interested in studying the Bible, there’s no better time than the present to give it a go. There are more resources at our fingertips than ever before in history to read — and understand — the Bible.
If you’re looking to stick your toe in the water or ready for a change of pace, here are some great tools to deepen your understanding of God’s word.
The most popular digital Bible in existence, the Bible App has been downloaded by hundreds of millions of people. With multiple translations and languages, Bible reading plans to give you some direction, and buttons that make Scripture easy to share and take notes from, you’ve probably heard of this app. But if you haven’t, it’s a great place to start.
A “Netflix for Bible study,” with hundreds of fantastic video Bible studies, sermons, and kids content. With apps for various streaming devices, this makes a great tool if you want to leverage your treadmill time or family movie nights for something a little more substantial for your soul.
We’ve all found ourselves at a hard-to-understand book of the Bible and in desperate need of some background. The Bible Project is rich with theological content, but wrapped in easy-to-digest summary videos that introduce you to every book of the Bible and other theological themes. Totally free, and worth thousands.
If you like to geek out on word study and get a little deeper into cross-referencing and original language stuff, this is my favorite free tool out there.
Here’s a list of links of other websites/apps that I’ve found helpful or had personally recommended to me:
I recently discovered a free online tool from Ozark Christian College. With online courses taught by college professors, these videos are well done and pack a lot of truth into a little bit of time. Check them out for individual study or in groups.
