The Bible Study App also keeps up with the Scripture passage you’re reading in the main window with sync scrolling. This means that as you move along in the Bible text, the commentary syncs to where you are in your study. No more flipping pages back and forth. No more holding the commentary text open on your desk in one spot, reading through your Bible text, and having to go back and find your place in the commentary. You’ll save an enormous amount of time with this feature alone.

We hope this article has been helpful for your personal Bible study. If you have any further questions about using your commentary, please email support@olivetree.com. We will be happy to assist you.
