Parallel Bibles are a useful way to compare two different Bible translations. In print, you can often find parallel Bibles that have English on one side and another language on the other side or a more literal translation next to a dynamic translation or paraphrase. With the Olive Tree Bible App, you can easily set up your own customized parallel Bible and in video below we’ll show you how.
WHY MULTIPLE TRANSLATIONS?
Now that you know how to create a parallel Bible in the Olive Tree Bible App, why would you want to use one? Here are some ideas:
- Read a more literal translation (KJV, ESV, NASB) alongside a more dynamic one (NLT, Message, TLB) to get a better idea of what the text says
- Have an English translation open alongside the different language text
- Compare commentaries or dictionaries by having those resources open instead of a Bible
