In this post, we will explore winter Bible verses. Each scripture will about the winter season or alluding to wintertime. I hope they aid you in your study of the Word. Grab your Bible and let’s dig in…
When it comes to winter… you either love it or hate it. Up here in Northern California, our winters are pretty mild. We go through some rainy patches but we don’t see much snow. Now, my best friend lives in Alaska. And in April it’s still snowing!
I don’t think I would survive it. I agree with what Carl Reiner says, “A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.” This would be me…for realz…
All joking aside the Bible is filled with interesting verses on wintertime. But it’s not always easy finding these kinds of verses. A quick look in the King James Version you will only discover 15 verses that mention the word, “winter.”
The thing is many portions of scripture mention things associated with winter. We see this with verses that mention snow and the cold. I have added a handful of these into this collection. My hope is that it helps bring a clearer picture of what the Bible says about winter.

You can hover over the reference and read the AMP (amplified version) without leaving the site. I enjoy the AMP Bible as it brings a richness and deeper level to understanding God’s Word.
