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:
Parallel Passages in the Pauline Letters
Explore the Pauline letters like never before with the Parallel Passages in the Pauline Letters resource. We’ve thematically organized Paul’s letters for quick comparison and in-depth study. Explore the differences in each of the Pauline greeting formulas; find where Paul shares his longing to visit the Romans, Corinthians, Thessalonians, and Philemon; or see everywhere Paul talks about the relationship between Adam and Christ. If you’re studying Paul, this is an essential resource to quickly see and compare his perspective on a range of specific topics.
Lexham Discourse Bible
The Lexham Discourse Bible features datasets and visual filters that allow you to quickly identify and search the discourse devices in the Old and New Testaments. Discourse Analysis is the study of how authors use linguistic devices to effectively communicate their message. Drs. Runge and Westbury have painstakingly analyzed the discourse of Old and New Testament and annotated it with 20 devices that are common to all languages. These annotations are searchable, so you can find every occurrence of a specific discourse device like direct address or changed reference. And with the use of our reverse interlinear data, you can use the Discourse visual filters to view these annotations in several different English, Greek, or Hebrew bibles. Explore the biblical texts with these datasets and visual filters to provide you with greater insight into the thought and rhetorical strategy of the biblical authors.
Emphasize Active Lemmas Visual Filter
Understanding words and their meanings is foundational to biblical study—that’s why lexicons and Verbum’s Bible Word Study tool are essential for discovering the enduring truths of biblical texts. With the new Emphasize Active Lemmas Visual Filter enabled, Verbum will automatically highlight the word you’re studying in the Bible Word Study tool, your lexicons, and your English, Greek, or Hebrew Bibles. Work seamlessly between the biblical text, your lexicons, and the Bible Word Study tool—and never lose your place again.
Cascadia Syntax Graphs of the LXX Deuterocanon/ Apocrypha
The Cascadia Syntax Graphs of the LXX Deuterocanon/Apocrypha is a syntactic analysis of the entire Greek text of the LXX Deuterocanon and Apocrypha using The Old Testament in Greek edited by Henry Barclay Swete. The database includes graphs that display the syntactic structure of these texts. With this dataset, you can visualize the syntactical components of a clause or sentence to better understand the relationship of its parts to the whole clause.
