Scripture Study Resources

 

We are often amazed now to think that when we began serious study of the Word, many of us didn't even know what a Strong's Concordance was! Now we view it as a basic essential for those to whom Hebrew and Greek are not primary languages.  Since we understand that there are inumerable difficulties in providing translations, and that every one of us has some kind of bias, our choice has been, as much as possible, to have a preference for a Hebrew bias. We have especially enjoyed Zhodiates and Baker Word Study series as they incorporate Strong's numbers right with the text.

We see now how important it is to be conversant with resources such as these to help us move out of our westernized world view and be able to more fully comprehend the Hebrew worldview which is so often almost polar opposite of the western way of thinking or perceiving information.

The following suggested resources provide a comprehensive way to study the Word in depth: 

Several people in our local community have also found great benefit in using Online BIbles such as

E-sword  

and

The Blue Letter Bible
