HitchcockThis Friday we highlight Hitchcock’s Bible Names Dictionary as a free download for The Bible Study App!

This dictionary lists the meanings of most of the Hebrew names that appear in the Bible (over 2,500). Though first published in 1869, Hitchcock’s scholarship of the Hebrew language still measures up to contemporary standards. In fact, biblical linguists to this day are undecided about the meaning of the few words Hitchcock did not include. This work can prove an invaluable resource for anyone who wishes to study Scripture or the Hebrew language more deeply.

Bible Handbooks and Quick References are great resources that help you go deeper in your Bible study.

Here’s how we’ve enhanced these resources:  (screenshots are from the Windows Desktop App.  Click for a larger view):

Bring up your preferred Bible translation in the main window. (I have the New Living Translation open to Romans 12:1 in this example.)  Click the split window button at the top right of the screen.

Click and hold to adjust the split window to your desired size.  Next, click “Tools & Notes” to see the drop-down menu and choose “resource guide.”  Please note that the split window opens to the last place that you had viewed, so if you were last in the library, the screen will default back to the library.

Scroll down to view “Places,” “Maps,” “Outlines,” and “Introductions.”  All quick reference content will be displayed in these sections.  In our example, after clicking “Rome” under “Places,” the resource guide shows me that I have two images available in my library.  I can click these images to see a larger view or even view them within the resource from which the content is found, the

I can also see that there are Outlines and Introductions available in MacArthur’s Quick Reference Guide to the Bible and other resources that have related content.

By clicking the book covers for these resources, I can see all of the results within that resource for the Bible passage.  In this example, I can see that there are three entries under introductions in MacArthur’s Quick Reference Guide to the Bible.  Click the article or reference and I can read the content in the resource.  Again, any Scripture verse becomes a hyperlink that I can view within the resource guide.
