Typically, finding cross-references require a lot of page-flipping and sticking your thumb in your Bible to hold your place. But, with the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge (NTSK) in the app, all you do is tap a few times. You can read verses that relate to the passage you’re on without leaving the passage. This is the way things were meant to be.

WHAT IS THE NEW TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE?

The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge is a revised and expanded edition of the original TSK. It adds over 100,000 new cross-references, and supplies many more key words to the Bible text, making this the most complete collection of biblical cross-references ever published. Using it with the Olive Tree Bible App you’ll save tons of time and effort.  No longer do you have to leave your original text to search for a reference.

A NOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER

One of the best ways to understand a resource is to read what the publisher and/or author have to say. Here’s what we found from the publisher inside the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge:

An incredible 1-volume Bible reference library, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge is a unique resource for Bible study, teaching, or preaching. Dozens of special study aids help you develop powerful lessons or sermons – straight from the Bible itself! No other tool better helps you interpret Scripture with Scripture. Unlike any tool you’ve ever seen – loaded with helps not available anywhere else.

More flexible than a concordance, more thorough than a topical Bible, more discovery-oriented than a commentary, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge opens windows, doors, and connecting passageways into every fascinating book of the Bible. Whether you have minutes to prepare a devotional or hours to devote to in-depth study, The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge maximizes your study of God’s word.

LOOK INSIDE THE NEW TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE

In this blog I”ll demonstrate how to use it with the Olive Tree Bible App running on an iPad.

First, select your preferred Bible translation in the main window. Then tap and drag the split window to access the Resource Guide in the app. The Resource Guide takes your downloaded material and connects it with the text you have open in the main window.

 

New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge 1

 

Under the ‘Related Verses’ section you’ll see resources listed along with a number badge. The number indicates how many entries there are in that resource for the text that is open in the main window. Since I have the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge installed, the app has found cross references relevant to the passage in 1 Corinthians that I’m reading. I can then tap on the  New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge to see all six entries that are indicated.

 

New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge 2

The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge organizes these cross references by topic and by verse making it easy to do further study on the particular themes found in 1 Corinthians 13.

I can then tap the reference in the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge and view it as a popup, or even split it out into a new window without leaving my original text.  This feature alone saves me valuable time that I’d otherwise spend flipping back and forth between references.

As you can see, having the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge  in the Olive Tree Bible App will help you broaden your biblical understanding of specific themes and enable you to quickly study large portions of scripture.

You can add this great resource to your account on our website.!

    If you already have installed the old TSK, will there be a discounted price for upgrading to the new TSK?

    • Yes, I added it to my cart while logged in and got the upgrade price.

      • Beverlee Lanning Reply

        Is the upgrade price the $17. 95 (?) that is the sale price now?
        Thanks

        • Beverlee, If you have the original TSK in your account when you go through checkout at http://www.OliveTree.com it should show an upgrade price of 12.99. It’s important to know that you have to go thru OliveTree.com to get this pricing AND have the original TSK in your account. If this is not working please reach out to our support team at support@olivetree.com

    • Wesley is correct. If you are logged in on OliveTree.com upgrade pricing is available.

      • What is the upgrade price? I have the original version and when I tried to purchase it, it was the $17.99 sale price. Is that the upgrade price?

    Can I choose the Bible translation for the popup window or is it the same Bible of the main window?

        • In the menu tap App Settings> Hyperlinks> Default Bible for Hyperlinks. You can then choose whatever Bible translation you have installed on that device.

    As far as I can see the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge may have more references but it is not as helpful as the original Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge in that the original broke down each verse with key words and the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge doesn’t break down by words within the verse.
    Am I missing something here? Am I doing something wrong? I’m a little dissapointed.

    • Donald,
      Thanks for the feedback on this and we see what you’re talking about. Our content formatting team is looking into it and we hope to get an update out that will make it easier to access the key words from the Resource Guide.

      • Donald Keiffer Reply

        Thank you very much for the quick update now listing words with references, great work.
        Again, thank you.

    As Donald mentioned, when you open the NTSK in the Resource Guide you have less information than the original TSK, no Key Words. If you open the NTSK in the Library it has much more information and is very expansive, but the whole idea of the Resource Guide is supposed give you the information right at your fingertips. This really should be corrected.

  5. I higly recommend to use this resource as a commentary in split window to benefit from all its features.

  6. Donald Keiffer Reply

    I open the split window and choose “Parallel.” Tons of information and key words and it follows the text.
