See tutorial on U-Tube: Printing a section of a page
Option 1 (Print whole pages) -- If you want to print the entire page (which can be many pages on paper), just click the print icon configured on your browser or press Ctrl + P on your keyboard and then click Print. This will print everything, including buttons, the gray background and pictures.
Option 2 (Print sections only) -- If you want to print only a section of a page, click and drag the mouse to highlight the section you want printed, and then press Ctrl + P on your keyboard to evoke the printer application. If needed click "More Settings," and from the options menu click "Selection Only" and then "Print".
Option 3 (Copy and Paste) -- Using the copy and paste method gives you the most control over what is printed, but is a bit more involved. Most web browsers allow you to copy and paste without any problems, but Google Chrome will copy and paste the (gray) background along with the text. The following instructions tell how to remove the background and other unwanted special formatting before printing by pasting first in Notepad, then recopy and paste into your word processor.
Copying into notepad first allows you to print text only (no buttons or pictures or special formatting, etc.), and recopying into MS Word is for further editing and printing.

With these tools you can do a more concise study on the Bible and find the exact meaning of words or jot down your ideas and things you want to remember. For me, It is comforting to have a physical Bible to see the words on paper, and use the personalized markings.
Project THEORY and brief history
We have all examined the Scriptures for ourselves and have heard countless sermons on nearly every subject imaginable, yet many of us are still unsure how it all connects to form one cohesive picture, hence we have yet to make sense of what we have heard and learned about the Bible. Jean's Bible Study is one of the most successful efforts in splicing together all the topics of the New Testament to display them in proper context to present them in an accurate paradigm of God's truth, so that even those who are unfamiliar with the Bible can read and understand it.
This project is obviously God's call on my life. I designed it originally for my own use starting in 1990 because I wanted a custom designed resource tool for topical studies. I arranged the topics in ways that I have heard ministers preach sermons, making it intrinsically a very useful tool for pastors. Lay people can also benefit from its simple design that avails itself on so many spiritual levels.
This website takes all 3,000 subjects of the New Testament and combines them into eighteen relevant chapters. The result, these chapters treat the topics as concepts by integrating them into an entire system of thought to show how they relate to each other. I assembled the concordance purely by an inductive approach as opposed to deductive. The inductive approach is a superior method in that it breaks away from the limitations of pre-established mind-sets and seeks to construct an objective view without relying on old schools of thought.
