Good Bible Study Tools

ToolboxMonday – Thursday (with the occasional Friday) I share some thoughts here about the Bible.  What I’d like to do today is a little bit different.  I’d like to share some of the online tools that I use for bible study. I hope that my devotional can be a help to you each day; hopefully be something that can help you grow closer to God and to your neighbor.

But let me tell you what I really want for you.  I hope I can always be a help to you, but I hope you don’t need me.  I hope that you can do dig into the Word, that you really don’t need me.  After all, you’ve as much access to the Holy Spirit as I do.  You’ve got as much access to God as me.

I hope I can help you faith.  But I also hope that I can equip you to truly dig into the Word yourself.

So, with that, here are some of the online Bible tools that I use.

Lumina Bible – This has become my favorite online Bible these last few months.  It has a great tool called the NET Bible, which give you some of the best commentary on the bible around, as well as some of the best Greek and Hebrews tools I know.  Very highly recommended.

Biblegateway.com – This the bible site that I use each day for this daily devotional.  This site literally has every bible in nearly every language out there.  Very good tool.

Wesley’s Notes on the Bible – This is an online collection of John Wesley’s notes that he wrote on the Old and New Testament.  If you want to know what John Wesley thought about a Biblical passage, this is a great place to start!

World Wide Study Bible – Much like Biblegateway, you can find lots of online bibles here, but what I really like about this site is the access to different commentaries.  You can learn a TON about a biblical passage through this website.

ESV Bible Online – This is the online version of the ESV Bible.  It has some pretty neat tools there.

Bible.com – This is the webpage for the YouVersion app that many of us have on our phones.  It syncs over quite well from your phone.  Really useful.

Daily Bible Readings – Looking for a great place to get some suggested Bible reading for each day for a devotional?  This site does a great job of giving you readings for each day throughout the year.

The Daily Office – This is the actual online version of The Daily Office, the morning prayer ritual that I do every morning.  These daily readings and suggested prayers have been an anchor for my soul for nearly 15 years.

Here are the online versions of The Upper Room and Our Daily Bread daily devotionals that so many of us have used throughout the years.  Through these sites you can also have them sent to your email address.

CS Lewis Daily – Here is a link for daily Tweets from CS Lewis.  While not technically Bible study, it’s still awesome.

Tim Keller Daily – And here is a link for daily tweets from Tim Keller, the pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church and in my opinion the best preacher out there today.

I hope these are helpful.  Thanks for entrusting part of your day to me!

Don’t forget, you can click here to download Asbury’s mobile app and read these devotionals, as well as listen to my sermons on your smart phones, and you thought our app, you can now watch our worship services from Asbury too!
