The Key Word Commentary is extremely unique. It breaks down every chapter of the Bible: 929 Old Testament and 260 New Testament. You’ll quickly find key information on any passage you’re reading! Here’s how.

What’s Inside the Key Word Commentary?

First, you open up to the book and chapter you want information for. Then, you’ll find then “key” categories that analyze and summarize the chapter.

There are ten key categories for each chapter:

  1. Before and After
  2. Analysis of Chapter
  3. Key Verse
  4. Key Word
  5. Key Person/Event
  6. Key Thought
  7. Key Thing(s) to Look For
  8. Key Bible Cross-Reference
  9. Key “By Way of Explanation”
  10. Key “Quotable Quote”

As you can imagine, this makes for a very big book. In order to find the information you are looking for, you must thumb through over 1000 pages. There are some resources that we don’t mind using paper versions of… but this is not one of them. Look how easy it is to use the Key Word Commentary in the app.

Key Word Commentary & Olive Tree

If you open the Key Word Commentary in the main window, you can use the verse chooser to quickly open any chapter you want.

You can toggle between grid and list view by tapping the menu button in the upper-right corner.

Once you open to the section you are looking for, you’ll see each of the ten “keys.” Here is what the Key Commentary has to share on Genesis chapter two.

Information like this is definitely helpful when you are trying to lead a Bible study… or just participate in one! It could also help you quickly gain context for the chapter you pastor is preaching on, so you aren’t left in the weeds.

Using the Resource Guide

We talk about the Resource Guide all the time — but that’s because it is an amazing feature. We so badly want everyone to know about it!

Anytime you’re reading the Bible, you will always have quick access to the Key Word Commentary. Since this commentary covers every chapter of the Bible, it will constantly be available to you in the commentaries category. All you need to do is tap and it will appear side-by-side with your Bible translation.

Lastly, don’t forget that all the verse references are hyperlinked! So, when the Key Commentary tells you about an important cross-reference, you can quickly get the scoop.
