Bible Study Tools

What do you use?

I use E-Sword. It's free, convenient, and I can access everything in one program on my computer. I have a concordance, Webster's 1828 dictionary, some commentaries (Matthew Henry, Treasury of David by CH Spurgeon), maps and timelines. I can type up notes as well right there on e-sword instead of bringing up like MS Word.

You can get various translations, all these different things, but some you have to pay for.

It's great and easy.

If you have any questions on how to do something in e-sword just ask.

I have esword and a ton of add-ons. I think it is a good tool but I seem to perfer the old fashon leather covered text. As you mentioned good program though.
"We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth - and we will bring back our dreams!" -President Donald J. Trump 1/20/17

“The more Hillary goes on television the more the American people realize how awesome it is to have @realDonaldTrump in office." -Donald Trump Jr. 1/29/18

"You've been talking about Russia for the last three years, all day, every day then all of a sudden it comes out that the whole thing is a hoax, which is what my father, and myself, and Lara, and Don, and Ivanka and everybody else have been saying and all of a sudden they want to talk about health care. “This is why they're going to lose. This is why they're going to lose in 2020.”

I have a Luke-Acts class coming up, and I've been looking for something that I can insert notes into quickly without switching to another document.

I'm going to check this out.  Thanks.

I use eSword and You Version.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

Is there an Android version of any of these programs?

I use the YouVersion Bible app on my Nexus.  I don't know about the E-sword, and was wondering the same thing myself.


[edit]

This is the one I use right now: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sirma.mobile.bible.android

A good third party source for esword is here..  http://www.biblesupport.com/

Lots of downloads for free, mainly resources in the public domain but still quite useful. There are also macros that link microsoft word to the program for notes and lesson plans. I wish you well in your class, what commentaries are you using?

Sorry, I must have missed your post back in November.  

We are not using any commentaries outright.  The first portion of the class was limited to inductive study, while the entire class has an overall concentration on the charismatic theology of Luke-Acts.
