The Two Keys
Key 1. We've been writing, studying the Bible: the plan-writing notes of Sunday sermons, writing courses, conferences and sessions of Bible study. Over time, these documents, commentaries, notes, and other related information become very difficult to manage. Sometimes, while reading or studying a portion of Scripture, we recall that we may have previously studied the passage and taken notes. We think, "It would be great if there was a chance to see all my notes for this passage in one place, or be able to cross reference notes about a certain word in the passage..."
Key 2. Each of our notes or comments are related to a particular topic. Biblical references mentioned in notes are discussed within the framework of each particular topic. That is, they relate to each other within a certain context. If we are able to view all our notes and comments related to a specific place of Scripture, then we can consider this Scripture from the viewpoint of different themes and interpret the passage from the perspective of other places of Scripture. Said differently, we can form use our previous learning about a Bible passage to form its own system of cross-referencing!
God has helped bring these two keys to reality.The program utilizes the Microsoft OneNote 2010 application to create a structured form of notes of varying complexity, including audio and video inserts.
The idea is this: the entire Bible, and everything connected with its study (courses, the plan notes, sermons, etc.) is stored in OneNote in a structured way. For added convenience, OneNote is supplemented by special programs.
The first program opens OneNote at the specified location of the Bible, making it very easy to navigate.
The second program allows you to write notes, comments on specific biblical passages or specific words in these passages (and the size of the commentary is not limited).
And the most interesting: the third program, which analyzes all the notes (course, the plan notes, sermons, etc.) and links them to specific places of Scripture referred to in these notes. And you can, while reading the Bible in OneNote, see the notes that refer to this or that Biblical passage!
Using OneNote IStudyBibleTools to study the Bible allows you to:
- Organize all your collected information associated with the study of the Bible;
- Automatically create your own system of cross-references with explanations;
- Record comments on the Bible;
- Ensure fast access to all stored information;
- Use the computer as a complete electronic version of Inductive Bible Study.
Details of how to use OneNote, the Bible study software application, and additional programs for self-study of the Bible are contained in manual.
God bless you in this fascinating journey through His Word!
