E2R’s new scripture index
Here’s a Christmas riddle for you: What question have I been asked more than any other in 2014? It is this one:
“Paul, have you written anything on (insert scripture reference)?” A close second is, “How do I read (insert troubling scripture) through the lens of grace?”
In response to questions like these I have written hundreds of posts on hundreds of scriptures. Problem is they’re hard to find. E2R has grown so big that finding past posts has become a chore. Have you noticed?
After five years and half a million words, the archives are stuffed to bursting, and some of you can’t figure out how to make the Subject Index work. There’s a lot of good stuff here but finding it is a headache.
Over the past few weeks I have indexed every post in a brand new, easy-to-use Scripture Index. Now if you want to find out what I have said about a certain scripture or if you want to know how to read a “tough” verse through the lens of grace, it’s easy. Just use the index. Here’s a screenshot:
It’s not pretty, but it works. The image above is a partial list for Hebrews. Entries are listed by chapter and verse and those in blue are linked to relevant posts here on E2R. The index also shows you where I have written about scriptures in my various gospel books. For example, look at the entry for Hebrews 10:17 above and you will see there are links to two separate posts as well as a reference to chapter 11 of The Gospel in Twenty Questions (or TQ for short).
I recommend you bookmark the Scripture Index. It’s not a commentary but it is a resource that you’ll want to come back to again and again.
I expect the Scripture Index will grow substantially over the coming months. I have many posts in the pipeline on verses that readers have sent me and I will add these to the index as they get published.
In the meantime, why not check out the new Scripture Index? It’ll lead you to treasures galore!

That must have been, and continues to be, a lot of work.
Thank you Paul!
You’re a bloody legend mate!! Cheers for all your hard work behind the scenes for you are bringing a lot of clarity to a lot of people 🙂
i see it as a beautiful new year gift…..
good move paul, A wommack has a similar set up, a bible commentary, its a good quick reference.
Oh, there was great joy to those afar off! 🙂
Wow, thank you so much for taking the time to do this!
Thanks Paul, works great.
Kind Regards, Peter
This is really helpful Paul. I already use your archive list a lot, but this will be a big time saver for me. Well done.
So appreciate all you input on controversial biblical issues. Keep it up!!

Thanks Paul, that’s great, Much appreciated. God bless you and family. Thank you for blessing me and my family as we continue to rest in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
My Christmas wish answered! Seriously, I had actually considered doing the same thing with your posts for myself. Hey, there’s an idea…put some of us to work. Thanks for all you do Paul, if I can be of help, let me know.
Thank you so much for all you do for the cause of Christ and His GRACE message! I will definitely be using this index and appreciate it!
When I saw this, I was so excited. I quickly added it to all of my devices. I’m experiencing a problem though. On the majority of the references, it takes me to the podcast page, with an invite to subscribe to ER2 podcast. There are no podcast, so I’m wondering if there’s something I need to do differently. I love this tool, and want to use it. Thank you!
Sorry, just realized that my comment was for the subject index, and not the scripture index. The one I’m having the issue with is the subject index.
