Enhanced For The Resource Guide: Study Bibles
One of the most powerful features of The Bible Study App is the Resource Guide found in the Split Window. The Resource Guide is home to all of your enhanced study resources such as maps, commentaries, dictionaries, outlines, etc. An enhanced resource is a powerful study tool in that it looks to the text open in the main window and finds related entries to help you in your study.
In the next several blog posts we’ll highlight the various types of enhanced resources and how they can help you in your study of the Bible.
A study Bible in The Bible Study App is an easy to use and very powerful tool in guiding you in your understanding of the text. Many study Bibles contain resources such as maps, timelines, profiles on Biblical characters, commentaries and articles. Because study Bible’s are uniquely enhanced for the resource guide they will work with any version of the Bible that is open in the main window.
In the screenshot above (taken from The Bible Study App on Windows Desktop) I have my main Bible text open to John chapter 1. As I scroll through the Resource Guide I can see all of my enhanced resources that have an entry pertaining to the current text that I’m reading. I notice that my NLT Study Bible has entries for related verses, commentaries, maps, outlines, and introductions. The numbers indicate how many entries are available for each enhanced resource.
The NLT Study Bible in the resource guide shows ten entries under the Commentary section for John 1:1-10. When I click on the NLT Study Bible it then shows me a preview of those ten entries and I can click again to read the full commentary. As I read on in the text those entries will stay in sync with my passage no matter what translation I have open in the main window.
