We don’t want to complicate your time with the Bible. Go to BibleGateway.com, log in, and begin exploring. There is no software to install and you can access key resources wherever you are. At home in front of your computer, at church with your phone, or anywhere you may have a question.
There is no need to hunt down stacks of books from the library. All the core resources you require are presented to you, right when you need them.
Let’s say you're reading 1 Samuel 17 in the New International Version (NIV) about David and Goliath. And you're wondering what “six cubits and a span” means in today’s measurements? The answer can be found in the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Dictionary with Bible Gateway Plus.
To get there, all you had to do was explore the Resources tab to the right of the Bible text.
Joining Bible Gateway Plus gives you instant access to all the bestselling Study Bibles, Commentaries, and more in the Resources tab. These are the core study tools you need for comprehensive Bible study and understanding.
You’ll discover a world of clear biblical analysis gathered together from top Bible scholars and pastors.
More than 50 Bible premium study tools will help open your eyes to abundant teachings of the Bible on topics such as grace and mercy and their practical applications for living your life the best way possible.
If you're doing a deep study on Forgiveness, not only can you find all the verses in which the word “forgive” appears in the translation you search, but everywhere the concept of “forgive” appears.
Go deep and examine the original Hebrew or Greek word with the NIV Reverse Interlinear and read its rich definition. Or, using the NIV Thompson® Chain-Reference® Bible, trace themes of Forgiveness throughout Scripture. Follow that topic trail by quickly moving from the Old Testament to the New Testament using linked verses.
“I teach a Bible Study. I always begin my preparation with content from Bible Gateway. I love having access to so many versions of the Bible and to the commentary from so many pastors. Your site is the easiest to use of all of them. The commentary that is verse by verse being on the same page as the text is wonderful. I am a Bible Gateway Plus member.”
