Can Greek open up the Bible for you?

Most people don’t believe they can benefit from the Original Greek of a Bible verse. That was before Spectrum Bible™.

Spectrum Bible™

(formerly WAVE Parallel Bible™)

A Spectrum of English Bibles

The Bible columns are ordered from the most literal translation to the most paraphrased. The colors tell you what kind of translation it is. The columns scroll together aligned on the current verse.

SimpleGreekHebrew

Simple Greek & Hebrew

Without recognizing Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic when you touch a Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic word you get its meaning and form. Then when you touch the Search button you get every place your word occurs in the Bible--perfect for quick Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic Word Studies.

BibleLinks

Spectrum Bible Links™ Connect the Bibles

The very reasonably priced in-app purchase, Spectrum Bible Links™, connect the Bibles to each other. When you select a phrase, you see how that phrase appears in each of the other Bibles including the Original Greek, Hebrew, or Aramaic.

How literal is a Bible? Just check its color.

  • Sky blues and purples...are the word-for-word Bibles which are accurate down to the word. (Free: Greek NT, KJV) (In-app purchases: Hebrew OT, NASB, NKJV, ESV)
  • Transitional greens...are the phrase-for-phrase Bibles which are accurate down to the phrase. (Free: NET) (In-app purchases: NIV, NIrV)
  • Earth tones...are the thought-for-thought Bibles which are accurate down to the thought. (Free: GOD'S WORD) (In-app purchases: NLT, Message)

Simple, Simple, Simple

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.

Other Features

Spectrum Bible™ provides convenient, deep, and simple access to the Bible itself--from its Original languages to a Spectrum of English Bibles.

Organizes Your Bibles

When new Bibles are introduced to the Christian public it is hard for most people to evaluate them. Spectrum Bible™ helps by organizing them left-to-right from word-for-word translations to phrase-for-phrase translations to thought-for-thought translations. At a glance you can tell what each Bible is good at (words, phrases, or thoughts).

Shows How to Flicker the Bible

Spectrum Bible™ presents the Bible itself and helps you access it. If you’re interested in learning to study it, Spectrum Bible™ offers instruction in Flicker Bible Study -- which is inductive Bible study that has been simplified for people that do not think of themselves as particularly good students (based on the book, Flicker Bible Study: Desire-powered, Inductive, Adaptable by Noel and Denise Enete, available here).

Study Panel Always Available

Just like using a physical notepad below an open Bible, the bar along the bottom of the screen opens to reveal a Study Panel below the Bible Panel. It allows you to capture thoughts and access resources while using the fully functioning Bible Panel above.

Internet Not Required

When you go out under a tree and read God's word you don't have to worry if you are within range of a hot spot. Spectrum Bible™ lets you access your Bibles anywhere.

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.
