Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above,
where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:1-3

Knowing God's Word #2

Chapter 2: Tools of the Trade

Resources, resources, and more resources. On our spiritual journey this week, we used study and topical Bibles, concordances, commentaries, and expository dictionaries to delve into the deeper meaning of 2 Timothy 3:16-17. Online references helped those of us who don't have access to all these types of reference works. We especially benefitted from Bible Gateway and Vine's Expository Dictionary.

The middle of our hostess's dining room table was piled with all kinds of references including favorites such as Strong's Concordance and Haley's Bible Handbook. We got to flip through an archaeological Bible and the brand new Nelson's Complete Book of Bible Maps and Charts.

We're blessed to live in an age of multiple and easily-accessible resources to enhance and deepen our study of God's Word.

What's one of your favorites?

Besides the concordance we enjoyed the study book by Alan Stringfellow "Great Truths of the Bible"

Yes, we are blessed. Some only hear about God's word by word of mouth. Sounds like ya'll had fun.
