Reader Question 10

This is the last reader question for a while, but I’ve had a great time interacting in this way with you! We’ll do it again soon, so either send your questions as you think of them or store them up for next time. 🙂

I was wondering if you had recommendations for specific resources we could use when doing research for our messages.  For example, I love it when teachers share the original meanings of words but don’t feel like I have a reliable place to go and look that information up.  Are there any specific resources, commentaries, etc. that are reliable sources of biblical information?  ~Kate

 

Oh, Kate! You have hit one of the passions of my heart– resources! I’m a total resource junkie, so here are some places to try:

For FREE concordances (for word searches) and commentaries:

  • BibleGateway
  • CrossWalk
  • First 5 App— Proverbs 31 Ministries’ First 5 App has archives so that you can go back and read commentaries written on the books already covered. I am personally growing so much from this study tool!

For FREE word origins and definitions:

  • Blue Letter Bible (It requires a little searching, but this site has Greek and Hebrew lexicons, so you can type in a word to see the origins. Very cool!)

For the Bible study tool I use:

  • Anne Graham Lotz has a comprehensive page with lots of resources about how to use the 3-step Bible study tool I learned from her. It’s simple but profound, so if you’re looking for a way to deepen your personal study, make sure to look here!

If you have money to invest, I’d highly recommend Logos Bible study software which has been invaluable for me.

Alright, Speaker Girls! Here’s your chance! What’s your favorite Bible study tool, and where can we find it?
