LDS Scripture Citation Index

If you have ever wanted to learn more about a specific scripture or a specific topic found in the scriptures this is a great resource for you.

Here is what the site says:

"This index links from scriptures to the general conference talks, Journal of Discourses speeches, and writings in Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith that cite those scriptures.  So, for example, suppose you want to know who has cited 1 Ne. 3:7 in general conference; click on the Book of Mormon link at the left and scroll down to 1 Ne. 3; there you'll find the answer.  Who has quoted Matt. 5:48?  Use the New Testament index to find out.

We have indexed the scriptures cited by speakers in LDS General Conference between 1942 and the present, and those cited by speakers recorded in the Journal of Discourses between 1839 and 1886.  The citations in Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith come from the special edition, Scriptural Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, edited by Richard C. Galbraith and published by Deseret Book in 1993 (ISBN 0875796478)."

Wow, I am excited too look up some of my favorite scriptures and some of those scriptures that I just don't quite get and see what I can find. 

Go check it out for yourself:

Happy Scripture Studying!
