How To: Use Study Resources

Bible Gateway offers a variety of study resources on its website,, including study Bibles, encyclopedias, commentaries, dictionaries, and sermons. Study resources are displayed alongside the sections of Scripture they discuss. To access study resources for a particular Bible passage, look up the Bible passage you have in mind (for example, John 3:16) and then look for the blue box labelled Study This. Click on the blue box to open the list of related study resources:


Clicking on the blue Study This button opens a window that shows all resources related to the passage you're looking at. Click on a type of reference (e.g. "Study Bibles") to see a list of available reference works of that type. References that are marked free are freely accessible to anyone; other reference works require a Bible Gateway Plus subscription to access:


To read from a study resource, simply click on its title, choose what you want to read from the list, and the text will be displayed without disrupting the Bible passage you're reading to the left.

To hide the reference window, simply click on the blue box again, and the Study This panel will close. You can access it at any time by clicking Study This again.
