e-Sword Home


e-Sword is a fast and effective way to study the Bible. e-Sword is feature rich and user friendly with more capabilities than you would expect in a free software package. The fact that e-Sword is free is just one of the blessings and does not speak of the quality of the software. The site builder, Rick Meyers, does not ask for any money but you may make a contribution (well invested in my opinion). One reason for this letter is to help you focus your initial downloads to a good, well rounded, set of basic Bible tools. You can always add resources at any time in the future.

Below is my suggested download list of basic Bible tools (*only four of which have a price tag.)

E-SWORD PROGRAM
The e-sword Program is the structure in which all of the resources function. It loads up with the King James Bible and an attached Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance which lets you have the option to immediately see via “pop ups” the G-Greek or H-Hebrew definitions of every single word in the entire Bible’s text. COOL & “way worth” some amount of a donation. Visit the e-Sword home page for more information.

FIRST, A QUICK NOTE ON BIBLE VERSION
There are “Translated” and there are “Paraphrased” versions of the Bible. A good translation should try to convey exactly what the original text is saying without putting any “spin” on the text. You will still find some variation from one translation to another but not in any matters concerning the core issues of our faith. Fundamental issues like the deity of Jesus, His blood sacrifice for the remission of our sins, Salvation by grace through faith in Jesus, God being the creator & sustainer of our lives and the universe in which we live, the necessity of our choosing between going to Heaven or Hell and many other fundamental truths are universally validated and agreed upon in any good TRANSLATION of the scriptures.
