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:
Miracles of the Bible Interactive
The miracles in the Bible are surrounded by a lot of narrative text. That makes comparing and contrasting them difficult. The Miracles of the Bible interactive allows you to sort the miracles of the Bible into categories like type (healing, provision, resurrection, etc.), people involved, location, and book of the Bible. Find all the miracles done by Moses, the miracles involving a piece of clothing, or the miracles done in Galilee. Or combine any of these categories—for example, find all the miracles the Israelites experienced involving provision.
Speaking to God Interactive
The Speaking to God interactive displays every conversation with God in the Bible. You can then sort them by type (a dialogue or monologue), the persons involved, and the content (petition, praise, complaint, confession, intercession, etc.). If you want to find every intercessory prayer made by Moses on behalf of the Isralites, the Speaking to God interactive allows you to find them in two clicks.
Link a Lexicon to a Bible
With this feature, jump from an English translation to Greek and Hebrew lexicons with one click. Build a layout you’ll come back to over and over again by linking your favorite lexicons to your English Bible. Move seamlessly from the Bible you’re reading to discussions of the Greek or Hebrew words behind the English translation.
Lexham SGNT Syntactic Force Dataset
Identifying the syntactic force, or use, of a Greek word is a task that many Greek students find difficult and often view as subjective. For instance, the Greek genitive, often translated with “of” in English, can carry a large range of meaning. When Paul states that the “love of Christ controls us,” does he mean that our love for Christ controls us? Or that Christ’s love for us controls us? Or that the love that controls us has a Christ-like quality? These are difficult questions that aren’t easily answered. With this dataset, you can search any interlinear version of the Bible for the syntactic force of a word. Looking for places other than Matthew 28:20 where the word “teach” is considered an instrumental participle? With the Lexham SGNT Syntactic Force Dataset, you can easily find them.
