The Word for Sunday, 22 May 2022

The Lord is with you while you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.

2 Chronicles 15:2 (ESV)

Paul writes to Timothy:

Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 1:13

About us

Who we are

  • We are a number of Christians from all over the world.
  • We love the Word of God.
  • Many people rightly take offense at Christians, churches or religion in general, rejecting them all. Indeed, the ground staff of God has failed miserably.
  • But God never fails – God is love! By means of "The Word" we invite you to meet with the Creator on a personal basis.

The Idea of the "Bible 2.0" Project

  • An important principle of Bible study is: “Scripture explains itself”.
  • This happens, for example, when you find a related verse and jot it down in the side margin of your Bible.
  • On our site bible2.net we collect such pairs of complementing Bible verses (cross-references) and use them for "The Word".
  • The term "2.0" means "working together via Internet": Christians share their knowledge of the Bible, and this will eventually benefit readers of other languages.
  • Get involved and contact us: contact.
