June 2016 iOS Update

ios app, online bible, bible software

Hi everyone!

We wanted to let you know that we have a bug in the iOS app and you will notice the dual pane won’t sync. We are working on a fix for it, but it probably will not be fixed until next week.

We also came out with an update to the app that was unrelated, so we didn’t want you to think we took the syncing feature out with the update.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!

I love Bible study. I have tried “not” to study, but I’m learning it is part of my spiritual DNA. God created me to study the Bible. I am to be a student first, then a teacher. When I teach hermeneutics, (interpreting & understanding the Bible) it is my goal to always have the students understand there are basic methods to study and interpreting. The basics can be easy. You don’t need a theological degree or the ability to speak Hebrew or Greek. Asking a few questions and turning a few pages will give you some foundational understanding.
