BIBLE RESOURCES

The most important ingredient for a good Bible study is the Bible itself.  It may be easy to forget that in some parts of the world owning or procuring a Bible can be a hardship. It may not be easily acquired or it may come at a cost that isn't easily afforded.  Below are two public domain versions of the Bible (available for download) that are free for public use.  Regardless, whether you use these downloadable versions or not, we encourage the use of "word for word" translations.  "Word for word" translations aim at reproducing the original form of the original Greek or Hebrew text.  Newer translations may be more readable but they may not be public domain.  We have therefore not provided other translations here for download.

COLOR BIBLE MARKING

Rediscover God's Word by implementing this unique method and strategy

Excerpt: There is a reason people use features like bold, italics, and underline in textbooks, emails, and letters. There is a good reason why students use highlighters and circles to identify important points in textbooks. Such notations do not minimize the importance of the other words on the page, they simply help us easily find and notice the main focus or point of a passage.

"Color Bible Marking has been extremely useful over the years for me and others. I’ve taught this class many times." - Kris Emerson
