The Complete Word Study Bible (CWSB) is a great four volume set that includes the KJV with Strong’s numbers, Greek and Hebrew dictionaries, and more!

The Olive Tree Bible Study App developers are hard at work on our upcoming 5.9 iOS release (aka “Flying Eagle” as it has come to be called around here). You may have noticed a little teaser in our latest iPhone & iPad release that said ”This update paves the way for a future App update…”
One of the great things about this upcoming release is how The Bible Study App will be better able to layout text in ways that we could not before. We wanted to show you a few examples of this using the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament. (Screenshots taken from an iPad 2. Click for a larger view.)
Compare the Introduction to 1 Corinthians
Current iOS App 5.5.4 Future iOS App 5.9
Notice how the introduction text can now be displayed in the gray box to notate the 1 Corinthians Introduction (a feature mentioned in the commentary series preface).
Compare the Translation Text
Current iOS App 5.5.4 Future iOS App 5.9
Notice the author’s translation of the text is in a different font type than the exposition text.
Text display is just one of the many advantages to this future app update. Make sure you have our latest iOS update that paves the way for this future update by clicking the link App Store graphic below:
The SBL Greek New Testament is another great Free book to add to your study library!
The SBL Greek New Testament differs from the standard text in more than 540 variation units. The existence of an alternative critically edited text will help to remind readers of the Greek New Testament that the text-critical task is not finished. Moreover, by reminding readers of the continuing need to pay attention to the variant readings preserved in the textual tradition, it may also serve to draw attention to a fuller understanding of the goal of New Testament textual criticism: both identifying the earliest text and also studying all the variant readings for the light they shed on how particular individuals and faith communities adopted, used, and sometimes altered the texts that they read, studied, and transmitted.

“Olive Tree BibleReader is my default mobile Bible. I use it for devotions every day, usually from my iPad… The split window lets me keep a Greek and Hebrew window open as I read, and the pop-up lexicons fill in the gaps in my memory. The copy-and-paste features let me copy and paste easily to Twitter if I want to create a tweet out of something moving from my devotions.”
“Never before has the Bible been so easily accessible. Go there over and over again through the day. It is the voice of God.”
You can download and read over 1200 sermons spanning 20+ years of Pastor John Piper’s ministry find them in the store of the Bible Study App or get download directions by clicking here!
The Bible – from Old to New Testament – was written over a span of 1500 years by forty different human authors in three different languages; Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek.
With the exception of a few verses written in Aramaic the entire Old Testament was written in Hebrew. Isaiah 19:18 calls it the language of Canaan while other verses call it ‘Judean’ or the ‘language of the Jews. Ancient Hebrew dates back to before 1500 B.C.
Many people assume that the New Testament is also written in Hebrew but by the time Jesus was born many Jews actually didn’t speak it anymore. When Rome had conquered Greece the influence of Greek culture had spread throughout the empire and so the popular language during the time the New Testament is koine (common Greek).
