It’s a myth that the Major Religions are basically the same

Text of Religions: This is the Bible, on One Page

This is the Bible on one piece of paper.  This is, truly, ….one of the wildest things I’ve ever seen!   I marvel at this technology.  Click onto the website below:

Scroll down a bit.

Find the book of the Bible desired (left side, top to bottom), and then just click onto the chapter number you want to read (right side of the book title, left to right).

After you have clicked onto a book chapter and the words of the chapter appear, notice that the chapter is the New Living Translation.  Right below Passage Results: ____, on the left side, is a box with the chapter inserted.   You can change the chapter manually, from say Luke 1 to Luke 2, by merely changing the number.

Or, there are a series of buttons right below that box, including the last button on the right that leads to commentary on the passage.

Again, right below Passage Results: ____, notice the 2nd box to the right that has the words New Living Translation inserted.   Then, notice the drop-down arrow.  Click onto that arrow, and you will have all translation versions, including the English language – some 23 versions, believe it or not!  Choose a version, and click UPDATE.

And then on the left side of the website, there is a wealth of information/help:  Passage Lookup, Keyword Search, Reading Plans, etc.


Whenever studying the texts of religions (whether Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, or Judaism), always keep the readings in context.  In the case of the Bible, the best way to study is book by book (there are 66 books of two divisions in the Bible, the Old Testament and the New Testament ).   Con means with.   Context, then, is that which goes with the text.   Context is the setting in which something is said, or occurs.

Therefore, look at the immediate setting, and how it fits with the surrounding verses.  If there is a question, evaluate it in the chapter and/or surrounding chapters.  Pay attention to the purpose, and the structure, of the book in which it is written – how it fits with the counsel of God’s Word.

The next time you purchase a Bible, be sure to buy a study bible which offers textual footnotes, and commentary.  These footnotes offer Old Testament passages that are referenced, and provide cultural and historical information on places, things, and people.  The commentary helps the reader answer these types of questions:   What does the passage really mean?   How does it apply to my life?   Why does some of the Bible seem irrelevant?   What do these ancient cultures have to do with today?   What’s going on in the lives of these Bible people?

For a reader of the Bible, versus a student of the Bible, I recommend the New Living Translation (NLT), Life Application Study Bible.  Available in any bookstore, or online:’0842384960′
