It’s hard to believe we’re almost one full week into 2014! Many people have set new goals and are attempting to form new habits in the upcoming year. Maybe one of these goals for you is going deeper into your study of God’s word?
God’s word is truly alive and there is no doubt that as we saturate our lives with his truth, transformation happens! Here are two resources for The Bible Study App that will help you stay in his word and grow in your understanding.
M’Cheyne’s Daily Reading is a great FREE resource to add to your Bible Study App. Use this reading schedule to map your reading and study of God’s Word. This unique reading schedule created by Rev. Robert Murray M’Cheyne, a 19th century Scottish minister, guides readers through the New Testament and Psalms twice a year, and through the rest of the Bible once each year. Find it under in the Reading Plans under ‘My Stuff or click here for download instructions for the App.
Another invaluable tool to aid you in your study is the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge.
The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge is the best known and most widely used collection of Bible cross-references. Compiled by several authors, the work includes 500,000 Scripture references and parallel passages. It has been incorporated with most electronic Bible collections as a highly useful means of Bible interpretation. Click here to purchase this affordable resource to add to your Bible Study App.

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.
The resource guide keeps up with me as I scroll through the Bible text and searches through the books in my library for content related to the Scripture passage in the main window.
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.
