Many years ago, when I had my first computer, I ordered a Bible program called the Online Bible. The funny thing is that it wasn’t “online” at all. Of course, in the late 1980’s the term didn’t have anything to do with the Internet. I ordered the program and a week or so later I received a box of 3.5″ diskettes. I copied them onto my “massive” 20 megabyte (no, it’s not a typo) hard drive. What a thrill it was to have the Bible on my computer. My trusty Bible Concordance was placed on a forgotten corner of my book shelf and I could now do amazing searches of the Bible. I know there are many good Bible programs out there today, but I’ve stayed with the Online Bible through the years. I have it on my computer at home and also on my PDA. These days the Online Bible folks explain that the name doesn’t mean that their Bible is actually “online” although the program is actually, of course, available for download “online.” However, some folks just go to the Biblegateway website and do their Bible searching online for real. It’s interesting to me that the Online Bible started before anything was actually “online” but that now, there are several real “online” Bible websites that most folks just take for granted. We’re on an interesting journey through technology even in our access to that old Book.
