During your Bible Studies, there are various aids that will assist you in having a more fulfilling Bible Study lesson.Â One of the tools you can use is a Bible Concordance.Â This will help you to readily find the passages you are looking for.Â You may remember a scripture, a phrase, or a word, or something about the scripture that hits you, and you remember it, but you may not remember which book of the Bible it is in.Â The Concordance will help you to find it.
- A Bible Dictionary is also helpful for looking up words and their definitions so that you will have a better understanding of what you are studying.
I don't know how many of the Bible Study members here in the Group use a Bible Concordance, but if you do, we'd like to hear from you on this topic.
Pictured to the left is a Strong's Concise Concordance along with Vine's Concise Dictionary. Invaluable tools to assist you with your Bible Study.Â If you don't use these tools yet, next time you are in the Christian Book Store, or a regular Book Store, seek these aids out, and sit down in a comfortable spot in the Book Store, and take a look at them.Â You'll find a smile come to your face with the stimulating insight that you will find inside of each book.
I must have my Bible Concordance by my side as I do my Bible Studies.Â I also use my Bible Dictionary.
As most of the members in this Group already know, there are aids in the back of your Bibles...you'll find indexes, guides, maps, and in some cases a Bible dictionary (depending upon the Bible you are studying from).Â Some of the members here may also find that the tools in the back of their Bible are somewhat limited.Â This is all the more reason to purchase a Bible Concordance and a Bible Dictionary.
You may find both of these tools on line as well.Â Therefore, you don't have to necessarily run out and purchase them.Â You can look what you need up on BibleStudyTools.com or Biblegateway.com (just for starters).Â The internet is such a great place to obtain all of the information you need in relation to your Bible Study lessons.
Personally, I love Strong's Concordance -- any version -- LARGE PRINT, small print, older version, newer version -- I have them all ~ smiles.
Just take a moment to Google any of these items, and take a peek at what they offer if you have never used these tools before.
Do share with us whether or not you have used these Bible aids in your Bible Studies, and if so, which type of Concordance do you use?Â Which type of Bible Dictionary do you use for your studies?
