Email Tips: Learn to Use a Concordance

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, May 17th, 2014 .

Where is that verse about “communion”?

Do you know all the verses using the word “dispensation”?

How long does it take to count the times “relationship” is in the Bible?

All of these questions can be answered in seconds with a concordance.

Without a concordance you must reread large portions of scripture or the entire Bible to find these simple answers.

A concordance of the Bible makes searching for words much easier by indexing every word alphabetically along with every verse where it is used.

Exhaustive concordances took years to create, but are now widely available in print and electronically in free Bible software.

Strong’s exhaustive concordance was first printed in 1890 just a few years after the car was invented.

Today, most everyone has a car or uses one for transportation, but only a small percentage of people own a concordance.

Perhaps this is why people are getting nowhere in Bible study.

If you want to move forward with your Bible study learn to use a concordance. It has long been the most valuable tool to get ahead in Bible study.

Bible study requires concordance work. Either you own a concordance, or you become one.

It takes a lot of reading time to develop your own mental concordance. It takes 3 hours flipping burgers to get a concordance on Amazon for less than 20 dollars.

You can find an online Bible search here.

(Print concordances are translation specific. Make sure you get a KJV concordance or else it will not work with your Bible.)

Hope this helps in your Bible study,
