As you well know if you open your Newberry Study Bible you'll notice so very much is said that one can't possibly understand like: The Hebrew Conjunctions, many things like that, and even some plain ole English that i'm suppose to know. Just need some help.


I have it in mind to create a Quicktime tutorial for using a Newberry Bible but it is pretty far down my list of projects.

So many have 'made a start' but then found it too complicated. In a sense it only needs to be as complicated as you want it to be. For example, I have very little Hebrew but I can still find many useful things in the Hebrew marginal notes. One of the great things about a Newberry is that if you are studying Greek at any level your Newberry will 'grow with you'.

I would recommend taking a passage scripture you know pretty well and working through a couple of verses at a time. Getting a hold of the Greek tenses is a good place to start and his geometric diagram of prepositions is very useful.

 Re:

hmmhmm,

Hello brother, you mentioned earlier something about getting a Newberry Bible sent to Sweden. I took it to mean that they don't or won't send you one there, is this correct ?

 Re:

well they are willing to send it to Sweden :-) its just that how i used to live before coming to know the Lord has had a consequence on me being allowed to own a credit card, I can not buy anything that requires a credit card, i do have another company in Sweden that allows up front payment where i get most my books. But they require an isbn number....the newberry dont have one, or i cant find one at least.

But i am right now in "conversation" with a credit card owner here in Sweden( my mother ) :-) so i figured i pay upfront and she order for me , and i pray it get safe to me. So right now i am hoping on this....otherwise i will find a way brother.

 Re:

Saints,

I'm wondering if the standard Newberry Bible font is smaller then the font in the wide margin Newberry Bible. Can anyone tell me if the wide margin font is bigger than the standard one even though Mr. Penfold says theres no "special" large print. It could be that the font in the wide margin is bigger than in the standard. Any help in this would be appreciated.

 Re:

The outer margins are about 1/2 an inch, but the inner margins where they come together and much less and I doubt that you would be able to use the inner ones for notes.
