The Internet and it’s growth in the last several years has made way for all kinds of organizations and individuals to go online with their knowledge and share information to help people. The growth of Christian websites is no different. From Christian finances to Biblical resources there is a wealth of information.
There are a few ways I know how to get involved in a Bible study. The most common I’ve encountered is through my church, or by going to Christian bookstores and purchasing a study. But, the internet has studies too and many websites offer them for free.
I’ve spent some time searching around the web to see what I could find. There are websites ranging in size and popularity. Overall, I’ve found some great free resources for learning and studying God’s Word. Therefore, I decided to provide you 10 free online Bible study resources I came across in which I think may be worthwhile to visit and review to see if they fit your needs.
10 Free Bible Study Resources:

But even beyond the web, there are also a number of other ways you may be able to get free Bible study tools or resources. You just have to let your creative juices flow.
Here are a few offline ideas to explore:
- Visit your local public Library.
- Visit your church library if it has one.
- Talk to your church leaders. May church’s already have such resources for small groups and they’re agreement with the publisher will allow them to make copies and distribute.
- Ask your pastor what Books of the Bible to read and see if he has some questions you can try and answer.
- Join a small group study. Although, you usually have to purchase resources, sometimes the group or church provides them for free.
- Ask a friend if they have any old Bible study books you could borrow or have. I know I have a few studies, now completed, are on my bookshelf. Many of them I used a notepad instead of writing in the book.
- Although not free, used book stores will typically have Bible studies for just a few dollars. My favorite in the Dallas area is Half Price Books, but I know they have many other locations too.
As you can see, there are a number of ways in which you can learn more about God’s Word and grow your relationship with Him with free Biblical resources and tools.
As a short disclaimer, I did my best to check out the validity of each web resource above, however, if you come across any that you think may not be serving God first, please let us know. Remember do your due diligence before using online content.
