Cross References

Time Posted on June 29, 2015 User Bethany Meckle

If you're in Bible Bee, you probably know that the amazing amount of cross references can be one of the most challenging parts of the study. As I've been working through my study this week, I started making a list of all of the cross references (and the categories they fall under) with both the reference and the text. So, I'm going to share the lists here as I get them done each week - just in case they might help a few of my fellow Bible Bee-ers as well.

The list is from the Senior study, so if you're a Junior or Primary you probably have different CRs (or at least fewer ones), but maybe the list will still help!

One word of warning: I copied the verses from the NKJV, so if you use a different version you might want to copy the list into a word processor and either remove the verse texts or replace them with the version of your choice.

Weeks 3-6 are now avaliable with text (in KJV) thanks to Emily H!!!

First I find key concepts and words from whatever passage I am studying. Then I look up other places in the Bible which talk about the same concepts or words. Finally I make questions on all the important cross references and add them to a free program called Mnemosyne, which is like Memverse only for questions instead of Bible verses.

I create questions from the CRs and put them on Quizlet to study.

Thanks for putting this together Bethany!

Thanks Bethany, for doing this!!
I think there might be a typo... Under you topic of "Temple Salesmen" you wrote down Ephesians 5:10-12, when I'm pretty sure you meant Ecclesiastes 5:10-12.
Correct me if I'm wrong. :D

Wow, sorry guys, I totally meant to have the last week's CR list up before now! I actually haven't even started on it yet, but I'm going to work on weeks 3 and 4 tomorrow and try to get those up here. Sorry about that!

Okay, weeks three and four are up, and five and six should be soon. If anyone else has a CR list they'd like me to share, that would also be much appreciated! :)

Ha ha, looks like you won the race, Emily! :D

Thanks so much! (I know how hard it is to come up with titles, too. :P)

Thank you for these lists. I know we don't have much time left to learn these, but, I have started working on a list based on these on Quizlet.com. So far, I only have the week one Jesus cross references on there. Here is the link:

@Bethany- If you are okay with it, I would like to reference you in the description (Thank you to...), however, I wanted to check with you first to make sure you are okay with that.

That would be fine, Isaac! I'm glad the lists are helping. :) You might want to credit Emily H too, since she did most of the work on weeks 3 and 4 and ALL the work on weeks 5 and 6.

EDIT: By the way, my Quizlet name is BethanyBibleBee in case you want to use that - either my real name or that is okay.
