BLB is now mobile-friendly!

We strive to make Blue Letter Bible helpful and useful to everyone who visits. Around 40% of our users access the site on mobile devices. To serve this community of users, we have recently optimized BLB for mobile and tablet devices. With the new mobile-friendly site, we have:

  • Formatted content for maximum readability
  • Created a “thumb-friendly” navigation
  • Optimized images to fit the device that you are using

While the BLB experience should remain the same for desktop users, those accessing from mobile devices will get the same powerful study tools in an all-new mobile-friendly design.

We hope to continue to make the BLB experience better all for our users, so if you have any feedback on the new update, please use our contact form or click the little feedback button in the bottom right corner of the site.

Blue Letter Bible has upgraded its edition of Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament. Each entry now includes a Scripture Index allowing you to quickly reference the Greek usage in the verses you are studying.

The CSB Translation: Now Available on BLB
The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) has recently undergone significant textual changes to their Bible, and they have renamed their translation, Christian Standard Bible (CSB). One hundred scholars from 17 denominations have translated straight from the original Biblical languages, without compromising readability. According to their publisher, the CSB has incorporated both the latest scholarship and linguistic advances, while remaining committed to traditional, conservative principles, that convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible. Read more about the CSB here.

New Blue Letter Bible item 4

The Holy Spirit moved the ancient authors of Scripture to write about Jesus Christ many generations before His incarnation. Pastor Don Smith has thoroughly outlined these prophetic “types” and “shadows” of the coming Messiah, from the Old Testament. Through the lens of the Holy Scriptures, you will clearly see “portraits” of the Savior, captured in God’s magnificent plan of salvation before the foundation of the world.
