One of the most unique features of the Sword Bible is the red lettering of the words of God in the Old Testament. While we firmly believe that all of the Bible is God’s Word and is, therefore, inerrant (see 2 Timothy 3:16), the highlighting of Christ’s words in the New Testament has proven to be a special help and blessing to countless people. In that spirit, the Sword Bible uses red type to highlight the direct words of God throughout the entire Old Testament. While readers should be aware that the red-lettering is not definitive and meant to be suggestive, great effort has gone into color-coding the text as accurately as possible. We hope this added emphasis will add blessing and clarity to Old Testament devotional reading and study, just as the highlighting of Christ’s words in the New Testament have done.
