History of Blue Letter Bible

Since the mid-1990’s, the Lord has reached millions of lives in over two hundred countries through Sowing Circle’s ministry of Blue Letter Bible. Our vision for creating a website offering Bible study reference tools was established in the mid 1990’s, at the beginning of the technological revolution. It has developed into one of the most advanced Bible centric study resources available offering a vast array of study tools that link off of Bible content pages. By God’s grace, Blue Letter Bible has fostered an in-depth understanding of the Bible, allowing God’s Word to permeate the hearts and minds of Christians around the world who are hungry to grow in the truth of Jesus Christ.

In 1996, Blue Letter Bible began by offering the King James Version and commentaries online, which were followed by the Hebrew and Greek Lexicon, audio sermons, maps, and other Bible versions. In 2004, Blue Letter Bible introduced Blue Letter Bible Institute, making 4 Bible courses available free of charge. By 2005, Blue Letter Bible expanded online offerings to include twelve English, one Spanish, three Greek, one original Hebrew, and the Latin Vulgate Bible versions. During these formative years, Blue Letter Bible added several commentaries, sermons, and other resources, most of which are linked to Bible passages.

Blue Letter Bible has continued to add new content (Bible versions, text and audio commentaries, original language tools, daily devotionals, maps and timelines, etc.), and has developed new software platforms and website features (apps, personalized website features and preferences, etc.). We have also introduced social media platforms and Blue Letter Bible Blog, which have served to increase our users' daily interaction with Biblical material.

By God's provision and grace, we have seen a growing annual user base of nearly 10 million people and 500 million annual page views. More importantly than the growth in numbers, however, are the numerous testimonies that we regularly receive; testimonies of how God is using Blue Letter Bible to minister to people all around the world.

In the mid 1990’s, at a time when personal computers were only beginning to surface in mainstream public, the Lord was giving Sowing Circle a vision for online Bible access and in-depth study through Blue Letter Bible. It remains our aim to spread the Word of God and to foster the spiritual growth of millions of people through these web-based technologies. God has been faithful to provide all that we need to make this possible, and He alone deserves all of the glory.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
