App Description

Studying the Bible shouldn’t be hard. NKJV Bible by Olive Tree equips you with easy-to-use Bible study tools and resources so you can stop skimming Scripture and get answers—for free.

Here are 4 ways you’ll be set-up for studying God’s Word:

1) NO WIFI
That’s right, you don’t need a WiFi connection to access your Bible, audio Bible, or any other Bible study tools. You could be in the middle of the Amazon or on top of Mt. Everest. If your phone is working, so is your offline Bible app.

2) MORE THAN JUST A BIBLE
God has been speaking to His people, through His people, for thousands of years… and that takes some research to understand! This is why we provide 1000s of resources to help you go deeper into God’s Word—because studying the Holy Bible shouldn’t be hard.

And when we say “resources,” we mean:
-AUDIO BIBLES
-DAILY READING PLANS
-DEVOTIONALS
-BIBLE MAPS
-STUDY BIBLES
-COMMENTARIES
-EBOOKS
-CHRISTIAN AUDIO BOOKS
-GREEK & HEBREW TOOLS
-AND SO MUCH MORE

3) TECH + DESIGN
Not only do we implement unique features into our app, but we do it with style. Our favorite is the split-screen window: The Study Center. You can use the Resource Guide tab to access any of the resources available in our app and read them right alongside the Bible of your choice. It even does all the hard work of tracking with you, verse by verse. Studying the Bible just became the easiest it has ever been.

4) CUSTOMIZE YOUR BIBLE
Want more highlighter options? That’s fine!
Pick your own color, thickness, and change it to underline instead.

Have trouble reading small print? Increase the font size!

Reading at night? Change the theme to be easier on your eyes.

Want to listen safely while you drive? Turn on drive mode!

You can save your favorite passages, drop a book ribbon, create a note, add tags, and sign up to receive a daily Bible verse. Best part? Your highlights, notes, and resources sync between all your devices.

BIBLE TRANSLATIONS
If you’re wondering about our different English translations, this app comes with NIV, ESV, KJV, NKJV and more. Speak a different language? No problem! We have Bibles in Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, French, and others.

We also have other popular translations available for in-app purchase!
Here are a few:
-The Message (MSG)
-New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
