Parallel is a big plus for bible study! Thank You!
I have tried using other parallel; bible applications and this is by far the most helpful tp study bible passages and easily search ang look at so many versions. The most I could really find on pother apps is 2 without much resources behind it. You can even look up the Hebrew and Greek behind the passages. So many various tools and so easy to use with readable multiple versions, even on an iPhone (by inverting the screen). I am so very thankful for this app. It has moved my study to much deeper levels!I It is like having an entire large library of bible resources right in your phone and so easy to access. One other favorite app has a lot of resources, but so difficult to access.
Indispensible for Serious Study
I use this app daily. I keep six different translations with original Greek & Hebrew/Aramaic (plus LXX/Septuagint) texts open for every passage read in morning devotional, using the lexicological aids for word studies. This often allows me to formulate alternate translations that illuminate passages beyond what the Amplified Bible offers. I especially like the simple, unified interface for searching words, phrases and book&verse addresses, which is able to decipher attempts at book abbreviations without colons or other customary punctuation. I gave only four stars simply because nothing is perfect. I believe the interface can be made a bit more intuitive. Plus, I would like to see a few of my favorite translations made available, namely the KJ2/Jay P Green, NLT and Living Bible paraphrase. I would also enjoy seeing parallel links to Haley's Handbook and reputable verse-by-verse commentaries, such as Ironside and Chuck Smith.
Learning to use Parallel Plus
I have just gotten Parallel Plus and love it! I’m still learning all of it’s features which are really helpful. I really like the ability to touch a word you aren’t sure you understand and it gives you lots of information about the translation and other info. Being able to read a verse or two in several translations give you a better understanding of what the writer is trying to convey. I wish I could convert the a Greek to capital letters rather than lower case (and maybe you can but I don’t know how) because I understand a little a Greek but learned using all caps. Parallel Plus is a great learning tool for serious Bible study.
As a student of the scriptures I have been very happy to have found this app. The variety and depth of information that this app provides at a fingertips touch is terrific and it is my sincere hope that they continue to expand on this fine work. If you offered 6 stars in a rating, this app is worthy of that rating. The convenience of being able to read more than one version at a time and being able to use the lexicons at a touch of a finger allows for and a richer experience into every visit into the scriptures. This app has made this valuable work available to anyone with a smart device and all in my family use it.
Parallel References at Your Fingertips
In my effort to find a new Bible study tool, I discovered Parallel Plus several weeks ago and have been using it since then. Though I am not completely familiar with all of its offerings, what I have found so far, I have really enjoyed and have been pleased with. Its ease of use is so welcoming, as the features offer intuitive paths of discovery. The ability to select a variety of the Bible versions you prefer in order to create an attractive home page palette based on your preferences is nice. The methods of selecting detailed word and verse studies, along with Hebrew and Greek resources, is so enriching to one’s scriptural understanding. Thank you for a great app!
A powerful app.
This app is incredibly powerful and will give you more than you could ever bargain for. If you’re learning either Greek or Hebrew this is an absolute must have in your library. It has been incredibly powerful and amazingly helpful. You will be able to cross reference words quickly, look up the meanings of the words with scholarly resources, and you will be able to compare translations in other languages other than the English translations. I’ve never experienced a bug or glitch with it to date. Thank you for this amazing tool and God bless the team that made this app a reality.
Best app for comparative study and use in church!
This is the app I most prefer using, especially when following along to my pastor’s sermons. Many times he will try to elaborate on a given verse by reading from multiple translations or interpretations. With this app I can set it for as many as seven different alternatives and quickly follow his moves from version to version. I used to carry a physical larger four version Bible, but this is FAR better...and on my iPad Mini 4, MUCH lighter to hold. Keep up the great work! Any chance of adding the PASSION translation (which is available for FREE on the Kindle) as another choice?
My Go To app
Have been using this FREE app for free for 2 years, and decided that it was well worth donating $. It’s ago to app because it allows me to dig deeper in bible study. I have recommended it to friends. Thank you developers for creating it. Thank you for letting me use it for free. Being in a low income bracket it has allowed me to use this free version to do in-depth studies. It’s obvious that you are more interested in encouraging and enhancing bible study instead of making a profit. I was a missionary to he poor and as I encouraged bible study, I know that they would not be able to afford other study apps. THANK YOU!!
Most used app
I'm a full time preacher so I study every week for 2 sermons and an adult Bible class. This app is perhaps the most valuable app I have for my study. I would dare say I use it almost every day. I love seeing the passage I'm studying in four of the major translations. I love seeing New Testament passages with the Greek text. I love that this app shows me every passage where a certain Greek word is located. I love that there is a book count for where the word appears. I love that I get the other Greek words in the same family. I love that parsing is available for each word. In short I love this app and use it constantly.
I came to love this app. I struggled a little getting used to but when I started using it regularly, I realized its value. I was tired of having all my bible translations opened on my desk to do my Bible study. This app saves a tremendous amount of time. Having five translations of a verse side by side and being able to quickly compare them is invaluable. I speak Spanish and German and I wish I had the choice of selecting translations in different languages (besides the Greek) so I can expand my Bible study a little bit more. Thanks guys you did an extraordinary job by creating this app.
Great for students!!!
This app is great! As a seminary student, this app is extremely helpful! Looking at multiple translations at once helps me to get a better idea of the meaning of a passage, and helps me to look at a passage in a way I may not have if I had only read one translation. Not only do I get a deeper meaning of God’s Word, but this app allows me to test the integrity of a translation I may not be familiar with against multiple translations I know and trust. This is great for students or anyone looking to study the Bible more deeply. It’s also great for everyday reading!
The best of the best bible
The most important thing about reading Gods word is praying for understanding. I have been searching for a bible that would be easy to understand, this is it!! This bible is a godsend, when I cant understand the KJV or NKJV, all I have to do is go to one of the translations in this parallel and get a clear English translation and I can continue to read. No more excuse of “I don’t understand the Bible” I love this and will let all my family and friends know that this is available. Thank you so much to whomever came up with this app. God bless.
This is a wonderful app for Biblical Studies
As a mature Christian, I decided to return to school a year ago to pursue a degree in Biblical Studies. I had several Bible apps, but no parallel version. This is my go-to now because I am also taking Biblical Greek. The drop-down Hebrew and Greek word studies are invaluable for translation assignments. I also appreciate the format structure. It mirrors a good study Bible. My favorite feature is the wheel-of-fortune book and chapter selector. Ingenious! I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to know the scriptures in a more personal way. And it’s free! K.
This app is AWESOME- and I mean that in the Biblical sense. You can select individual words and see every translation, the history of the word, why it was translated that way, plus you can have 4 translations side-by-side all at the same time- my personal setup is NIV-Hebrew-Greek-King James. You can also see every occurrence of a word just by clicking on it, which is invaluable. I love my Bible that I’ve had for almost 25 years, but this app is essential for anyone serious about Bible study and building a solid relationship with Christ. It’s incredible.
I’ve been using this product (either in website or app form) for almost 10 years now, which is kind of shocking and makes me feel old. It’s an outstanding program. Easy to use, and powerful. I’ve got a decent Logos package, but still find myself using Parallel Plus for most things. I end up using Logos for the more recent BDAG and HALOT lexicons, which this app could absolutely not provide unless it started charging $400 per user. But I do all my ground work here. I couldn’t be happier with this thing!
