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.
Quickly see all the verses relevant to the current verse you're reading. Tap on the cross reference, a pop-up window will appear, and then you can quickly navigate to the corresponding verse - without ever leaving the passage you're reading.
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.
