The lead developer kept simplifying the design of this app until his talented, but computer-challenged wife could use it without guidance. She is the one to thank for how easy Spectrum Bible™ is to use.

Greek for Everyone

It has always seemed like there was a huge wall between those that know the Bible's Original languages (Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic) and those that do not. This video shows how Spectrum Bible™ helps jump the wall (4:49).

I have downloaded the Spectrum Bible App, and I'm very impressed. I find the app to be sleek, user-friendly, and very powerful. I'm amazed how well it runs on my phone.

I have been using Spectrum Bible for the past five years and find it to be a fast, effective tool for handy reference. I also have expensive computer software but this app is better for a fast search or for a Greek/Hebrew definition or parsing. I have read my Greek NT many times but cherish the quick access Spectrum has given me before a sermon or during devotions. It is an indispensable tool.

Having toured through programs and apps for the past twenty years, I have found this the best for reading Hebrew with understanding, and studying the Scriptures in context. Serious grammarians, theologians and the like will probably champion some more elaborate helps. But for elegance, accuracy and usefulness, Spectrum Bible takes the cake for me.

As a life long Bible student of 57 years I would say this app is the most practical tool I have ever owned. All other tools are made more functional by its use. It is God's gift to all who love our Lord.
