The Resource Guide is the most powerful feature in the Olive Tree Bible App. As you read your Bible in the main window, the Resource Guide follows along and displays relevant Bible study information from your study notes, commentaries, maps and more.
Gain knowledge on any passage of the Bible, exactly when you need it. The Resource Guide will let you know when information in this title is relevant to anything in the main window. It will also track along with you as you read through the Bible.
Get a feel for how books of the Bible are laid out and how your commentaries will be structured. You can also access these from the Resource Guide when it's applicable to the passage you're reading, providing additional context.
Quickly find information about a book of the Bible, its author, date, audience, purpose, and other topics. If you have an introduction to the book of the Bible you're currently reading, the Resource Guide will make it easily accessible for you.
Did your resource mention a passage of Scripture, but you can't remember what the verse says? Never fear! Tap the linked verse and a pop-up window will appear, giving you quick and easy access to the verse in context.
Thoughtful people are insisting that if we are not living in the age of the Apocalypse, we must at least be living on he threshold of that age. So many significant things are happening. The rebirth of Israel, the rise of Russia, the increasing collective consciousness of Europe, the awakening of China, the resurgence of militant Islam, the political and moral bankruptcy of the nations and their international institutions, the apostasy of the professing church, the ecological threat to the planet. These and similar pieces are all part of the jigsaw puzzle of our age. Thoughtful people believe that if any clue to the picture is to be found, it must be in the book of Revelation.
This commentary will attempt three things — to carefully and clearly outline the book of Revelation so that its chief movements can be clearly discerned, to expound the book verse by verse so that its details can be grasped, and to show where the trends discernible in today's world will end and how they relate to the book of Revelation.
