The Sword Bible takes its name from Hebrews 4:12, which states, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword.” In that spirit, the many special features offered by the Sword Bible are designed to help readers study the Bible more easily and to discover the spiritual sharpness of God’s Word in their own lives.
Every Sword Bible offers an array of unique study tools. Of those, perhaps the most noteworthy is the complete red-lettering of the words of God and Christ in the Old and New Testaments. While we believe that all Scripture is God’s Word and is thus inerrant (see 2 Timothy 3:16), the red-lettering of the words of Christ in the New Testament has been such a blessing to readers in the past that we hope the same might be found in highlighting God’s words in the Old Testament. Other great features of the Sword Bible include the definitions of difficult terms found throughout Biblical verses, and noting the Hebrew names of God in the margins of Old Testament Scripture.
The Sword Study Bible has all of these features and more, all of which are geared toward enhancing personal studies of Scripture. The Sword Study Bible features are intended to make in-depth Bible study easier to achieve. The most distinctive feature of the Sword Study Bible is the Margin Reference Study Guide, a topic-driven study of the entire Bible. Other highlights of the Sword Study Bible’s features are the boxing in red of all quotations of God’s words by other biblical characters, and the “Treasury of Biblical Information”, a collection of study resources with over 60 different articles, maps, and charts.
Whatever it is you’re looking for in a Bible, we feel sure you will find something to love in our Sword Bibles. We pray that this special edition of the Bible will bring glory to God and will be a help and a blessing to people around the world who seek to know Him better.
The Sword Bible comes in two great editions: the Sword Bible and the Sword Study Bible. Both contain unique and interesting features designed to guide you as you study the Word of God.
