Saturday, December 12th, 2009

Scott Jones has provided a free synopsis file which matches up OT quotations which are found in the the Book of Hebrews. This file was available a number of weeks ago on the BibleWorks forums, but I also wanted to acknowledge it here.

New Synopsis - Thomas-Gundry Harmony of the Gospels

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Thanks to BW user Philip Brown (and his secretarial minions), we now offer a different Synoptic set for use in BibleWorks. This one is based on the work of Robert L. Thomas and Stanley N. Gundry in their book A Harmony of the Gospels.

In order to use this file, you must unzip it and place it in “BibleWorks 8\init\” subfolder. Once in BibleWorks the Synoptic Window can be accessed (in BW8) under “Tools: Viewing the Text: Synopsis Window” To open the Thomas-Gundry file, go to “File: Open” and then select “thomasgundry.sdf”


Synopsis File for 1 Esdras/2 Chronicles/Ezra/Nehemiah

Monday, January 7th, 2008

Dr. Andrew Steinmann recently posted a synopsis file for use within BibleWorks which will be very valuable to people who are looking at some of the later traditions of the Hebrew Bible. The BibleWorks program includes a Synopsis window which allows users to see multiple books of the Bible in sync in a synopsis mode. While the synoptic study of the Bible is more famous among the four Gospels, the Synopsis tool can be used for other purposes as well and this is a good way to see the relation between a number of books so one can investigate the relationship between them. Check it out, you’ll be surprised at how much overlap there is!

DOWNLOAD! ~ open the ZIP file and save it to the folder C:\BibleWorks 7\init\ The Synopsis tool can be accessed through the “Tools” menu in BibleWorks, then use “File:Open” to load the .sdf (synopsis) file.
