Tools for Bible Study.

I was hoping you could lend me some advice. Do you know of any literature that gives loads of references.

For example something in this style:-

in the beginning was the word all things made by him --- john 1:1-3, 10

and the word was made flesh --- john 1:14

By him (Christ) all things created --- Col 1:14 - 17

Order of Creation:

First day -- light --- Gen 1:1-5

Second day --- firmament ---Gen 1:6-8

Third day --- seas, land vegetation --- Gen 1: 9 - 13

Jesus part in Creation

AND SO ON....

I would love if you could help me find a great resource that puts information topically like this with the references!

Any help you could offer would be fantastic!

Since you have written by email I would presume you are computer literate. I would therefore recommend you to buy a computerised Bible. This allows you to search, cross-reference, make topical notes and copy or merge Bible verses into your Word processor. They often have a topical index as well -- or you can do selective searches such as "Jesus and Creation". In my programme this gives the following:

JESUS, Creator

John 1:3; John 1:10; 1 Cor. 8:6; Ephes. 3:9; Col. 1:16-17; Hebrews 1:2; Hebrews 1:10; Rev. 3:14

There are many programmes on the market. I use one called WordSearch, but Logos is also very popular, also Quickverse -- and there are plenty of others. Most of these are available in multiple Bible versions depending how much you want to pay. You can even get some free on the internet. For instance, vi sit www.e-sword.net.

If you do not have a computer available then I would suggest a good analytical concordance such as Strongs or Youngs. These are very large and heavy but a good resource for Bible Study. Also Bible Dictionaries can be a great help. I keep "Collins Gem Dictionary of The Bible" with me as a reference aid. There are many bigger and more exhaustive ones that can be a great help.

Hope this is of some help.

God bless you in your Bible Study.
