 Re: Geneva Text

I haven't costed the E-sword software or its modules but this is the first time I have seen a bible program which has the Geneva bible as a module.

Does anyone know if other bible programs have Geneva?

I have created a pdf of Tyndale's 1526 version which I would be willing to email to anyone who would like a copy. I have wanted to do the same for Geneva but have never found a source for the naked text. Tyndale was the main source for Geneva and remains the main source for the KJV. Currently the KJV NT is 86% Tyndale.

Just email direct if you want a copy.

Mr Moderator: Hope this is OK to offer this service?

Another resource I have come across that I like very well is Kay Arthur's "How To Study Your Bible." I also recently purchased the New Inductive Study Bible and have found it to be very profitable to me.

I can second the recommendation for E-sword, it has been a great tool for my studies. It is offered free of charge and includes a number of bible modules, commentaries, and dictionaries/concordances, books, maps, STEP reader.

It's very useful for organizing your own study notes and preparing messages. I use it often for taking and organizing my study notes when listening to audio sermons that I download from this site and others. I have created topic notes for each speaker with headings for each message I listen to, it's easy to go back and quickly review the sermons this way.

There's a lot there for free! I was so pleased with the software I sent the author a check out of gratitude. The site can be found at the following link;

 Re: My Favourite Bible Study Tools

in so far as computer tools, for me it is definitley olb and e-sword all the way. More so olb but that might be because i have been using it longer.

I am extremly gratefull for my copy of the companion bible, i personaly think it is one of the best tools going. I don't see eye to eye with Bullinger on a few things, in particualr his blend of dispensationalism but it is still a fine tool. i also love his work on figures of speech in the bible which is most enlightening.

In terms of bible translations I probably read the NKJV more than anything but also read a lot from; Rotherhams, Youngs the Concordant Version, Darby and weymouth.

As someone once said though, "I have an Emphasised Bible, an Amplified Bible, an Emphatic Bible and an Expanded bible but the best one of all is the Exemplified Bible! the one that is lived out in reality.

Don't forget that so many of the religious leaders of Jesus day had great acces to the scriptures in the original language, but yet when Christ walked by they could not see Him.

His word to the pharises of His day holds true for many evangelicals of our day

"Ye search the scriptures, for ye think that in them ye have life eternal, and they it is which bear witness concerning me"

looking unto Him, Stuart

I have to an A++ to [url=][b]e-Sword[/b][/url]. I have been using e-Sword over 2 years and it is a great tool. The best part is that its free. There is a forum called [url=][b]The Christian Lounge[/b][/url]. A lot of discussion about e-Sword and many downloadable add-ons also. I highly recommend it.

My favorite bible is the NKJV.

Thanks [i]tcrowder[/i]! I love e-sword also! The Chrisitan Lounge site you mentioned is really good, I have been there before. He gives you the tools to be able to make your own modules, commentaries, etc. (note: these tools are for more advanced computer users). But wow! imagine making your own commentary for people to download into e-sword. NEAT STUFF!

I reccomend the Unbound Bible. It is very user friendly:

Another great link:
This is the Christian Classics Ethereal Library.
I know of a bunch that are great. Give me a hollar if you want some more.

 Re: e-sword and Greek parsings?

I have begun to experiment a little with e-sword and it certainly has a good clear interface. Can any of you expert users tell me whether or not there is a parsing module for the Greek texts? Thanks.
