Browser Bible

A browser based Bible Study Application built with the holy trinity of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Goals

HTML and JavaScript based Bible software that can run

  • on any browser
  • on any device
  • in any nation

The application has full search and highlighting features but requires

  • no install
  • no server
  • no trace

To make this happen, there are two ways to view the same biblical content

Credits

Original Language Data

Many of the texts are the product of the hard work of many individuals dedicated to open source work including [http://openscriptures.org](Open Scriptures) and http://www.crosswire.org/. Thanks for the great work!
