What’s New in Verbum Now 6.8?

If you’re subscribed to Verbum Now, you just got access to a bunch of new features! Take a look at what we’ve added:

New Testament Use of the Old Testament

This new interactive lets you explore how New Testament authors cite, quote, allude to, or echo Old Testament texts. Display both Old Testament and New Testament passages in multiple versions for quick comparison—including the Hebrew or Greek Old Testament and the Greek New Testament. Find the passage you’re looking for using faceted search options such as speaker, themes, events, places, or things.

Lemma in Passage Guide Section

The Lemma in Passage section of the Passage Guide scours your library for every occurrence of the original language lemma in the passage you want to investigate. Results are categorized according to the dictionary form of the word, and organized by resource. The Lemma in Passage guide identifies everywhere a word appears in your library. For instance, the Greek word “logos” appears in the context of a discussion about John 1:1—even in resources not explicitly about the Gospel of John.

Reader’s Edition Interlinear

Reading ancient texts in their original languages can be both difficult and stressful, especially if you don’t know all the vocabulary. That’s why Greek and Hebrew Readers are popular tools for assisting students in their acquisition of a new language. Our new Reader’s Edition Interlinear lets you customize any original-language interlinear text according to your needs. Hide words according to frequency, leaving only the words you haven’t learned. Use the Reader’s Edition Interlinear in your language study and adapt it to your ever-changing educational needs.

Personal Letters Section

Personal letters are valuable resources that illuminate the context in which an author lived and wrote. The Personal Letters section in the Factbook now provides convenient access to these texts.

Corresponding Notes and Highlights

With Corresponding Notes, you can now see all the notes you’ve attached to biblical texts with reverse interlinears. Take a note on the Greek word Εὐχαριστοῦμεν (eucharistoumen) in your Greek New Testament, and with the Corresponding Notes feature, you’ll see that same note attached to the equivalent translation in your favorite biblical translations.

Old Testament Propositional Outlines update

The latest update to the OT Propositional Outlines Visual Filter adds Daniel and the Twelve Prophets. This update will complete the OT Propositional Outlines feature!

Two New Preview Resources
