They give students a deeper understanding of theology and church history, while also teaching important disciplines like apologetics, hermeneutics and homiletics. Today I’d like to introduce you to The Portable Seminary.

Why Write a Study Bible?

John MacArthur answers this question in his opening remarks. He tells us that the answer to this question comes in a conversation between Phillip and the Ethiopian recorded in Acts 8:30-31: Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?” And he said, “Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?” And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.

This is exactly what MacArthur does for us. He sits with us and guides our study.

All the Extras of a Premium Study Bible

The MacArthur Study Bible includes all the maps, charts and extra reference tools you’d expect from a premium study Bible. MacArthur often helps us connect the Old Testament with the New Testament. Sometimes he does this with the use of “Types.” For example, at the end of Genesis he provides a chart titled: Joseph—A Type of Christ, where he outlines 18 different ways we can look forward to Jesus as we study the life of Joseph. You’ll find many other helpful tools like this, such as:

  • A Concise Topical Index
  • More than 20,000 Study notes
  • Introductions to the Bible
  • Thorough Book Introductions and Outlines
  • Outline of Systematic Theology
  • Index to Key Bible Doctrines
  • Messianic Prophecies in the Old Testament
  • Timeline of Old Testament Kings and Prophets
  • Timeline of New Testament Chronology
  • How to Study the Bible
  • Harmony of the Gospels
  • Over 50 Bible Maps
  • Bible reading plans
  • Table of Weights & Measures
  • And More!

The Bible is Often Its Own Best Commentary

It’s obvious that MacArthur embraces this truth and he takes full advantage of it. His study notes are packed with cross-references to related Scriptures. This is a powerful advantage in QuickVerse, because all you need to do is mouse-over each reference and the Bible text pops up for quick reading.

Sync with Any Bible in Your Digital Library

For those who purchase a paper edition of The MacArthur Study Bible, they must choose one of several translations available. In QuickVerse you can easily sync this work with any Bible translation, or several translations at the same time.

It’s an impressive accomplishment that John MacArthur has shared his thoughtful consideration and study of each and every passage of the entire Bible, with the intention of providing deeper understanding of each verse. Furthermore, it’s a blessing to you and me that all this scholarship is so affordable, and just a click or two away. I hope you’ll take advantage of this special offer before it expires. It’s only $19.95 and you can download it quickly and be enjoying this work within minutes. Just click here.
