SBL GNT Available (Updated 10/31)

Written by Michael Hanel on October 29th, 2010

UPDATES BELOW. — I’ve put release notes for newer version on a separate page.

Last night there was an announcement about the SBL GNT on the Evangelical Textual Criticism blog, today the version was released, and tonight you can view it in BibleWorks! That’s the speed of the Internet**.

As of Sunday, 10/31, this is considered a final version. However, please let me know here if there are any problems. The text should be identical to that of the SBL GNT found on any other source.

The textual apparatus is now available as a CHM file–fully integrated into BibleWorks using the Resource Manager.

Note, these files probably will only work in BibleWorks 8 because of the diacritical characters included in them. Sorry. Just one more reason to upgrade! :) (Make sure you are using the latest BW .exe file before using these versions).

DOWNLOAD! — simply unzip to \databases\ folder of BibleWorks and restart. The version ID is SBL. [UPDATE: SBL updated as of 8:30pm Eastern time on 10/31. Redownload and copy over your old files and restart BibleWorks]

DOWNLOAD! — Version without diacritics (should work in older versions of BW as well as BW8). Simply unzip to \databases\ folder of BibleWorks and restart. The version ID is SBL2. [UPDATE: SBL2 updated as of 8:30pm Eastern time on 10/31. Redownload and copy over your old files and restart BibleWorks]

DOWNLOAD! — CHM module of the SBLGNT critical apparatus. Unzip the files and copy to your \databases\ folder.

** Ok so the internet isn’t quite that efficient. It really consisted of me giving up my evening to work on the conversion.

Note: If you happen to share links with friends to these BibleWorks files, please use either a direct link to the BibleWorks blog (here or here), or to the BW forum thread. Do not link directly to the files (unless you use the goo.gl links provided above).
