Recommended Resources

Below are several resources that we have used and recommended over the years. We not affiliated with these web sites or authors; as with all sites, use discernment (Acts 17:11).

Online Resources

Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible
John Gill's Commentary on the Whole Bible
Bible Gateway

Online Sites for Word Studies using Strong’s Numbering System (While there are several sites using Strong’s numbering system, this is one of the more straightforward. To find a definition, simply search for the verse containing the word(s) you wish to define and, once there, click on the "tools" bar beside it. The first screen to appear (“Interlinear”) identifies the Strong's number. A click on that number gives you information and definitions. (Again, as with all sites, be discerning regarding resources, advertising, etc.)
