Tips for using ATLA Religion to find information on a passage from the Bible:

  • Begin by clicking "Scriptures" in the blue bar on top of the search screen; then, browse for your passage. Click the title of a biblical book (or chapter, or verse) to see all the articles on that passage. Click "Expand" to break books down by chapter, and chapters down by verse.
  • Once you have a result list, you can narrow your results by:
    • Filtering by "Subject" in the menus on the left-hand side of the result list
    • Adding a keyword in the search boxes on top of the page
