Use Study Bible Notes With Any Translation!

The great thing about using a study Bible in the Olive Tree Bible App is that it can be used with any Bible translation!

Because of the way our Resource Guide connects Bible study resources with the text you’re reading in the main window, study notes can be used with any Bible translation. In the screenshot below (taken from an iPad), I have the King James Version open in the main window and under the Commentaries section of the Resource Guide, I see a number next to my study Bible notes. This number indicates available entries based on John 3:1-7. You’ll also notice that the study notes I have installed are not based on the King James Version, but they still work the same.


Again, any Bible open in the main window will work with any study Bible notes that you have installed. In the screenshot below, I have the English Standard Version open in the main window, and I’ve got the NIV Study Bible Notes open in the split window. The notes will stay in sync with what I’m reading regardless of the translation difference.


Watch the video below for more on how study Bibles work in the app. This video uses the NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible Notes as an example, but these steps can be applied to any study Bible you would like to use in our app.
