Use the Dictionary in the Resource Guide

Another way to view the Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary is in Resource Guide in the Study Center. As you read through your Bible text, the Resource Guide searches through all the downloaded resources in your Library to find related Bible study content.

For this example, I have opened the New King James Version (NKJV) in the main window. You can choose any Bible from your Library. Next, select the green 'Open Study Center' bar at the bottom of the screen.3._Open_SC.jpg

Next, select the 'Resource Guide' tab (lightbulb icon) to make sure you have the Resource Guide open. As you scroll down the Resource Guide results, you'll see related information in the various sections.
