Bible Study Resources

Getting to know God through his word is foundational to building a strong, healthy relationship with Him. Below are some great resources to help you dig into scriptures and develop a deeper understanding.

Blue Letter Bible

Easy tools to drill down to the meaning of the text as it was written and cross-reference for context.

Look at the Book

Pastor John Piper’s series offers invaluable insight into scriptures. Each short video focuses on a single passage. 

Enduring Word

This commentary is so on point. Dive into layers of meaning and history alongside the scriptures. Just Google whatever book and chapter you’re reading + “enduring word” and enjoy!

Bible Project

Fully animated short-form videos explaining the bible by book, character, or theme.

Bible App

The most popular Bible App features a ton of targeted reading plans. The plans usually have devotionals that offer a rich understanding.

Bible Gateway

My favorite thing about BibleGateway.com is that you can pull a single verse up in dozens of translations on one page. It’s beautiful to taste different notes that get lost in translation.

Eat Slowly

Below are 3 simple steps to improve your ingestion of God’s word.


Be focused.


Take it personally.


Pray earnestly.

The Word of God is spirit and life (John 6:63); it is living and active (Hebrews 4:12).
