Approach Bible Study Through A Bible Search

What Is a Bible Search?

A Bible Search is an active investigation around a singular topic within the Bible.

It’s focused, diligent and tactical.

A Bible search allows you to uncover and exhaust in detail all the Bible says about a particular topic.

It avoids the current practise that many Pastors do of misinterpreting the Bible or preaching out of context from one verse.

One of the best ways to get actively involved in a Bible Search is to employ it as your means of study during your home bible study.

Learn All You Can About The Bible

bible searchAs a seminary student, I am always looking for more information about the Bible.

As I study to become a pastor for other people, it is extremely important that I learn all I can about the Bible and that I utilize all of the resources that are available to me.

I had never heard of a Bible search until recently, but doing them has radically changed my ability to learn and process information about the Bible.

What I love about studying the Bible is that I am always curious and hungry to learn more.

I am a firm believer that people should spend their lives doing things of value that they deeply enjoy. So when the change came for me to further my education with seminary I jumped at it.

Just a few months into my classes, the Bible search tools that I have been taught have by far been the most valuable source of new knowledge that I have discovered.

Are You Curious To Learn More About The Bible?

Perhaps you are taking a Bible class or are just wanting to learn for your own benefit.

It doesn’t matter why you want to know more, it simply matters that you can know more by doing a Bible search or two on the information you are seeking.

I love that a Bible search can both satisfy my curiosity and yet leave me desiring more knowledge. What a great thing!

Ways To Approach A Bible Search

A Bible search can happen in many ways.

There are many great tools to be used, but by far some of the best can be found in libraries, at bookshops, or even on the internet.

Basically, a Bible search is done whenever a learner uses tools to try to gain more knowledge about a particular passage or theme in Scripture.

By far the most important bible search tools you need include:

1. Greek Lexicon

Learn about Pneuma original meaning using the New Testament Greek Lexicon – King James Version.

2. Strong’s Concordance

The Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance is the most complete, easy-to-use, and understandable concordance for studying the original languages of the Bible.

Combining the text of the King James Version and New American Standard Bibles with the power of the Greek and Hebrew Lexicons, any student or pastor can gain a full understanding of the applied meaning of any verse, phrase of chapter in the Bible.

3. King James Bible (Authorized version)

The King James Version (KJV), also known as the King James Bible (KJB) or simply the Authorized Version (AV), is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England, begun in 1604 and completed in 1611.

4. Blue Letter Bible: Bible Search and Study Tools

With the Blue Letter Bible, you can read and study God’s Word with Bible study software that has in-depth resources such as commentaries, Greek and Hebrew word tools, concordances and more.

5. Bible Search Engine by Smart Bible Search

This site auto suggests Bible verses as you type and returns passages ordered by relevance. It also includes Nave’s topical search and Strong’s Concordance.

 

As you can see, a Bible search doesn’t have to be official, it simply has to be helpful in teaching you more about the Bible.

In Summary

If you are curious about learning more about a Bible search tool or two, find someone to talk with.

This may mean talking with a pastor or setting up a time to meet with a Bible professor at a local college.

Do whatever you can to be proactive about doing a Bible search to do more.

You will be so glad that you did and the knowledge you learn will be the most helpful thing in the world for you and your future.
