New Blue LEtter Bible item 1

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 3

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.


New Blue LEtter Bible item 4

In this second part of a two-course series on “A Biblical Worldview,” Dr. Jones sorts through many difficult issues, equipping Christians to defend their faith in God and proclaim the Good News to a misguided humanity.


New Blue LEtter Bible item 7

Blue Letter Bible is partnering with Bethlehem College and Seminary to bring you diagrams from their digital resource called Biblearc. Bible arcing is a graphical Bible study method that helps you understand the main points within a text, and shows how those thoughts are supported throughout the passage. The arcs indicate certain relationships, logic, and flow of thought within the text, helping you arrive at a Biblically sound interpretation. They have provided us with over 70 graphical images from a selection of Bethlehem Seminary’s professors and students, and we will continue to add additional Biblearc diagrams in the future.

The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) is now available for free on Blue Letter Bible’s website and iPhone/iPad mobile app!

The HCSB is a trusted, original translation of God’s Word. A team of more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations pursued two ideals with every translation decision: each word must be faithful to the original languages of the Bible and each word must reflect clear, contemporary English.

We are very thankful for the generosity of Holman Bible Publishers, an imprint of B&H Publishing Group, who have offered Blue Letter Bible the free use of the HCSB!

Isaiah 42:8 HCSB

Don Smith—The Parables of Christ Audio Series
In this series on "The Parables of Christ," Pastor Don Smith exposits gospel passages with a blend of sound doctrine and practical application.

Smith looks at how the parables demonstrate God’s power, reveal His sovereign purposes, and express His righteous judgment.

New Blue LEtter Bible item 42

We're pleased to announce a new web tool for those of you who run blogs or church websites or, really, any website on which you reference scripture. The tool (what we're calling the BLB ScriptTagger) finds any Scripture reference on your site and creates a hover-over displaying the text of the referenced passage.

Like this: Deut 6:4-9 or John 3:16. Just roll your mouse over either of those references and you'll see what we mean.

The BLB ScriptTagger will create these automatically. All you have to do is add the reference. Once the script is in place (a one-time addition of, at minimum, a single line of code), you won't have to do anything to else to link these references. So check out the BLB ScriptTagger: easy to install and easier to use.


We are pleased to announce the addition of new audio commentaries: We Beheld His Glory, an exposition of the Gospel of John by Donald R. Smith. Our heartfelt thanks to this contributor for providing these messages to the Body of Christ.

Debido a que hemos comenzado a añadir material de estudio bíblico en español, creemos conveniente el presentar una introducción de cómo utilizar estas herramientas de estudio. Es así que, presentamos a continuación un video de tutoría en español.

[An English explanation: How to Use the BLB in Spanish. With the recent additions of several Spanish-language tools, we felt an introduction to using the site's tools for Spanish-speaking individuals might be helpful. With this in mind, we present the following Spanish-language video tutorial.]

2009

Spanish Materials! More Spanish language materials have been added to the site. We have recently added an audio exposition of the Old Testament by Fausto Pflücker, Jr. in Spanish.


Hitchcock's Topical Analysis of Scripture. We are pleased to announce the addition of Hitchcock's Topical Analysis of Scripture to the site.

2008

The Blue Letter Bible Institute is pleased to present a new course entitled The History of Redemption. In this course we will see the unity of the Bible as it presents God's plan of salvation for mankind from Genesis to Revelation and review the general content of the books of the Bible for the purpose of integration and seeing thematic relationships. We will approach this survey of the Bible from two points of view: what God has done and is accomplishing in history and what God has spoken or revealed in terms of Scripture.


Blue Letter Bible for Smartphones is now available. Information on this new resource may be found here.


[No longer applicable]You may have noticed some slight differences in the Blue Letter Bible. We've recently completed a massive overhaul of the programming that crouches behind the page processing your requests and delivering you the information you're looking for. The good thing is that for the most part, you won't notice that anything has changed. The better thing is that most of the things you will notice are very nice improvements. There will, of course, be a thing or two to get used to, but we'll save that for the end. AOL browser users please click here.

Here are some of the features that you can now enjoy on the BLB:

My Preferred Bible:
You can set the BLB to default to the preferred version of your choice. Does your church use the ESV in its service? Now you can have the ESV as your normal Bible version. [SCREENSHOT]

Using Different Versions:
Up until now, you could only use our tools in conjunction with the KJV—while sliding over to the Reading Version in order to see the Bible in your translation of choice. No longer. Now you can look up verses in the NIV, check the concordance in the NKJV, and find cross-references in the NASB. Or whichever translation you choose. (And yes, the Reading Version is still available from the right-side nav bar.)[SCREENSHOT]

Improved Greek and Hebrew:
Now all three of our Greek texts feature accents and our Hebrew text features vowel points. As well, these original-language texts are presented in unicode as copy/pastable text, rather than as individual images.[SCREENSHOT]

A New Tab for Word Searches:
In addition to the Primary and Secondary Results tabs which we added last year, we've added a new LexiConc tab, automatically adding in the LexiConc search results and saving your time as you search the Scriptures in your study time.[SCREENSHOT]

Subscribe to Devotionals:
Whereas previously you could only subscribe to Bob Hoekstra's Day by Day by Grace devotional, now subscriptions are available to our BLB Daily Promises and Spurgeon's Morning and Evening devotionals as well.

Of course we realize that not everyone takes to change as well as others. Some will find things like the absence of the Old Search (which we've been gradually phasing out since April of 2007) disorienting. In order to help you better survive this change, we've prepared this short video comparing the Old Search with the current one. Our aim is to point out the difference and help you to see how the new search may actually be easier for you to manage than the old.


Blue Letter Bible CDs may be requested online. Not just for missionaries, the BLB CD is designed for software based Bible study. It operates as a stand alone tool for any one, at any time, and any where a personal computer can be used. We invite you to request a copy today!


The Blue Letter Bible Institute is pleased to present Servanthood. This course of study is composed of thirty-two lessons primarily taught and moderated by Chuck Smith. It also includes various guest speakers who represent untold decades of pastoral experience and insight. It is the intention of each instructor to accomplish the goal of leadership by, "equipping the saints for the work of ministry" (cf. Ephesians 4:12). The course content defines essential elements of Christian maturity that range from personal brokenness and humility, to holiness and spiritual boldness. Every believer will benefit from studying the many aspects of servanthood that are examined herein.


Now that the New Year has begun, it may be a good time to start up a Bible Reading Plan. You can either simply visit today's reading, or sign up to keep track of your progress so you'll always know right where to start. Each Bible reading is available in both text and audio.


2007

The Jewish Festival of Hanukkah is now going on from sunset on 12/4/2007 through sunset of 12/12/2007. What is this festival? Is is Biblical? Dr. David Hocking answers this question in his message, What is Hanukkah? You can download it to play on your local device.


In honor of Reformation Day. The preservation of the gospel of Christ is always worth celebrating, now as in any era. In 1517, one such notable defense was carried out by Martin Luther as he strove to return the church to purity of faith in the midst of growing corruption. His challenge to draw the church from the interference of merely human influences and back to a life founded upon the Word of God was issued in the form of ninety-five theses. In honor of the 31st of October's Reformation Day (a day meant to celebrate the preservation of the glorious gospel of our salvation), we present Luther's Ninety-Five Theses. In addition, here is an mp3 audio message on Reformation Day, by Pastor Kevin Otsuji of Reverence Bible Church.


We are pleased to announce the availability to order online the Blue Letter Bible CD designed for missionaries and others who have either limited or non-existent Internet access. Due to the space limitations of a CD, this software does not offer quite so robust a study experience as our website offers. For example, due to copyright restrictions, the CD does not contain the more modern Bible translations. However, the principle study tools are present. We hope that you, as missionaries, will find our tools useful to your ministries and personal studies. Each week we will make a limited amount of CDs available so that we can ensure we have the available resources to fulfill the orders. If you miss this opportunity, check back with us next week.


New! As part of our Blue Letter Bible Institute, we now offer printable Certificates of Completion for every course completed with a grade of C or better. Students may access their certificate in the Student Center.


[Outdated] Good news for those of you who have wanted the version-searching capabilities of our new Bible search but missed some of the nuances of our old search tool! We've made a concerted effort over the last weeks to work those features back into our new search program in order to eliminate your need to continue using the Prefer Old Search link. NOTE: if pages look odd, your browser may be using old formatting instructions. Try hitting Ctrl-F5 to make certain you're using the most up-to-date formatting.

First and foremost, we've added in the ability to view secondary results for your multiple word searches. Go ahead, give it a try, run a search for Jesus faith love Siloam. You'll note that there are no verses in Scripture that match your request. Now if you haven't already done so, click on the tab that says Secondary Results. This will display all combinations of your search terms to help you find the verse you had in mind—just like in the old search tool.

Next, we've heard the pleas of those who prefer point-and-click navigation to find Scripture references and brought that back as well. Even more, we determined to make it more friendly to those who suffer handicaps that make typing difficult. You should notice immediately above the search box, the term (abbreviations). Simply click on this to bring up our new drop-down menu—from which you may click to enter your entire Scripture reference (no more scrolling to find the book name you're looking for!).

Lastly, we've reintroduced the ability to view Strong's numbers with your word searches. You'll note that when word-searching in the KJV or NASB, we've added a small checkbox through which you can toggle on or off the inclusion of linked Strong's numbers. This feature is only available in the KJV and NASB, and will appear greyed out in other translations.

We hope you enjoy these additions!


The Blue Letter Bible Institute is pleased to present The Attributes of God by Dr. David Hocking of Hope For Today. This sixteen-part course that examines the characteristics and nature of Almighty God, as revealed in the Scriptures. Dr. Hocking conveys the fact that knowing God is the highest pursuit of human life. There is no better source than the Bible for learning about God’s ways and this course is replete with His Word. Answers are found to questions such as: Why should we worship God? What does it mean to fear the Lord? How can we understand the Trinity? These topics and a multitude of others are thoroughly discussed in the course material. There is nothing more important than having a personal relationship with the sovereign Creator. It is our hope that these classes will promote a vital, spiritual growth and maturity in the heart of every student. This class is available through the text or the audio version, and we encourage you to enroll today.Be sure to visit the Blue Letter Bible Institute (BLBi), which currently has a total of ten courses for your study of God’s Word. All the courses are free and may be completed at your convenience.


You may have noticed that we've changed our search tool a little bit. You can now search for word/phrase combinations and for verses from the same search box. It may take a little practice to get used to, but we are confident that once you do, you'll be enjoying our much more powerful search engine. Moreover, you can now search from any of our available Bible translations. We've also prepared an article so that you can learn more about some of the new features available with this change. And if you really don't like change at all and want to use the old search engine until you become more comfortable with the new one, just click on the text above that says, "Prefer the old search?"


As we remember Christ's resurrection this season, we are happy to inform you that we have just added four studies by John Walvoord on Jesus' resurrection and ascension. This series, Resurrection and Ascension of Christ, consists of four articles by the late Dr. Walvoord that were originally published in the Bibliotheca Sacra journal. Many thanks to Dallas Theological Seminary for granting us permission to use these studies.

The Blue Letter Bible Institute is pleased to present Searching for the Truth on Origins by Roger Oakland of Understand the Times, International. This twelve-part course addresses the controversy surrounding the origin and history of life from the opposing views of both Creationists and Evolutionists. The course discusses topics such as: how and when life began, the possibilities of life resulting from random processes, inaccuracies in evolutionary evidence of the fossil record, and the probabilities that our planet experienced a catastrophic flood as recorded in the book of Genesis. The course reveals the impact of the evolutionary view on human morality and spirituality, speaking from a biblical worldview and presenting examples from current events. Be sure to visit the Blue Letter Bible Institute (BLBi), which currently has a total of nine courses for your study of God's Word. All the courses are free and may be completed at your convenience.


We have recently added the English Standard Version (ESV) to the Blue Letter Bible. The ESV is a new Bible version that employs an essentially literal translation while paying attention to literary excellence and readability. See Isaiah 53 for an example of the ESV. Thank you to Good News Publishers/Crossway Books for allowing us to use the ESV. Visit the ESV website for more information on the translation.


The New International Version (NIV) has been added as an additional reading version. See Philippians 2 for an example of the NIV. Thank you to the International Bible Society for permission to utilize the NIV.


We are pleased to announce the addition of two new text commentaries. First, Alfred Edersheim's classic volume Sketches of Jewish Social Life in the Days of Christ. This author transports the reader into the land and life of Palestine during the time of Jesus, providing a deeply colorful context for understanding the New Testament. Secondly, we present a fine study on the book of Job by Pastor Donald R. Smith called The God of the Whirlwind: God's Supremacy in Job's Trials. In the study, Pastor Don Smith exhorts us to “love and trust God even in our adversity because He first loved us and entrusted us with His grace.”


We are happy to announce that David Guzik's Study Guides have been updated and expanded. Guzik's Study Guides are one of the more popular commentaries on our site and with the recent updates they now cover nearly the entire Bible.

2005

The new year brings a new tool for the Blue Letter Bible: the Daily Bible Reading Program. Now you can use the Blue Letter Bible to assist you in reading through the Bible in a year's time. You can choose between different translations and different reading plans. We are releasing this tool as beta, which means that we are relying upon user input to make the program work nicely and easily for our users.


We are pleased to announce the addition of Gesenius's Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament. Gesenius's Lexicon is a standard reference work for students of the Old Testament. This version, translated by Tregelles (with additional notes) is available through the BLB lexicon. For more information on accessing the BLB lexicon, see the help tutorial. To view an example, see the word checed (mercy).


Martin Luther's classic Commentary on Galatians is now available on the BLB. Luther's work on Paul's epistle to the Galatians and his understanding of justification by faith is what helped ignite the Protestant Reformation.

"Can You Lose Your Salvation" is one of several topical audio messages by the late Dr. Walter Martin that have been added to the site.


2004

We have just updated The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge (TSK). This includes a revision of the content as well as a new system of displaying the data for ease and convenience.

The player utilizes the free Macromedia Flash Player, which is usually pre-installed with your browser. For those using broadband Internet connection, it is approximately a ten-second download; for those using a dial-up connection it is approximately a four-minute download.


Two new courses are available at the Blue Letter Bible Institute (BLBi):

  • Christology: a fourteen part course covering the study of the doctrine regarding the Lord Jesus Christ. This course is taught by Dr. David Hocking (Hope for Today).
  • Survey of the Bible 2 (Isaiah-Malachi): the second installment of three courses surveying the Holy Canon. This installment covering the prophetic books of the Old Testament was taught by late Pastor Ray Stedman (Ray Stedman Memorial Library).

The BLBi now has a total of six courses for your study of God's Word. Visit the BLBi at blbi.org.


Added The Fundamentals edited by R.A. Torrey. The Fundamentals is a compilation of 96 articles on the fundamentals of the faith.


We have added MP3 versions of three translations, performed by world renown voice actor, Stephen Johnston. Available are the New King James Version (dramatized), the New Living Translation (dramatized) and the King James Version (narrated). There is an audio link on each of the Bible pages for these translations. Please note that these are subject to copyright and are at this time only available for web streaming. We ask you to respect the copyright.


We are making some changes to the look and feel of the website. The changes will be gradually implemented in different sections of the site, as there are literally hundreds of thousands of pages to change. We ask for your indulgence during the update. Our goal is to provide a consistent appearance across all the pages. Pray for us, please!


We added the New Living Translation in verse format as a companion to the paragraph format. On any main Bible page just use the new "Read / Print Another Version" to select the NLT and there will be a buttom to switch to the verse formatting. We changed the name of this function from "printer-friendly" because it was far more than that. You can read about a dozen versions including the Hebrew and Greek, whether you want to print them or not. And you can now listen to the chapter in three different translations. So we made them more nicely formatted for both reading and print purposes.


Revised the King James Dictionary to be keyword searchable. The King James Dictionary contains 837 words and phrases to help the reader deal with somewhat archaic words and phrases like: espy, gird or whet.
