Bible Marking Guide

September 5, 2009

I thought I would share this with anyone who may be interested. I became interested in Bible Marking a couple of years ago when I saw how much it can really help in personal study. However, not being one to proceed without a plan, I began looking for some kind of system to provide some guidance. Unfortunately, I did not have much success in finding anything published or on the Web which seemed to fit what I wanted so I set about to develop my own system…

I decided early on to use a color coding system to keep track of subjects and themes. Deciding which colors to use was a difficult process but it ended up being partially based on which colors were available. I found, through a few sources on the internet, that the best kind of pen to use for Bible marking were artistic pens that used archival ink. This led me to Pigma Micron pens (size 01). They are not cheap but they do the job rather well.

Using these colors I established the following underlining color code system which I have found very useful. If a verse or passage seems to fit into more than one category I simply make a decision as to which category best fits the verse and use that color code. The topics can be distinguished as shown later. I plan to try to incorporate highlighting at some point but haven’t decided exactly how to do it yet. I’d appreciate any suggestions.

Subject Categories:

Blue – Subjects dealing with Scripture and God’s Word (Scripture, Law, Commandments, Teaching, Truth, etc.)

Green - Subjects dealing with faith and our response to God (Faith, Spiritual Growth, Ethics, Worship, Prayer, etc.)

Brown - Subjects dealing with God’s grace and His initiative (Grace, Holy Spirit, Wisdom, Election, Providence, etc.)

Red - Subjects dealing with Christ and Salvation (Christ, Salvation, Regeneration, etc.)

Purple – Subjects dealing with God and His kingdom (God the Father, Kingdom of God/Heaven, Prophecy, Glory of God, etc.)

Black - Subjects dealing with sin and satan (Sin, Sin Nature, Satan, False Prophecy, etc.)

I also worked out a set of abbreviations for the specific topic. These go in the margin and allow me to distinguish the specific topic at hand. The nice thing about this is that multiple topics can easily be attached to a single verse. If a secondary topic applies to the passage I list that in parenthesis. I am always adding to this list as I find verses and passages that fit into other areas.

The ABOVE was thought out and shared by another Christian who was trying to figure out a basic way to help them mark the bible and he shared what he does here..  Though this is one way, anyone can adjust or find their own way of marking their bibles to fit them…

MOST STUDY BIBLES will help give similar tips on marking a bible

But I like the above personally and will eventually make adjustments as needed

Take care
