This is one of the best days of my life. I’m only half kidding.
I’m sitting in a training workshop for Bibleworks 7. Bibleworks is the exegetical software that RTS professors recommend. Since I sell it at the bookstore, and since I want to get my money’s worth out of the program, and since I want to be a scholar and all that, I registered for this training session. Yes, nerd-fest. And I’m the most excited one here. Here are some of the things I’ve learned I can do.
- Display ready-made synopses that put all the narrations of, say, the Transfiguration side by side.
- Download free modules that have things like Calvin’s commentaries, images of NT manuscripts
- Set text color options to show all the differences in 2 translations– for example, the King James and New King James.
- Find and create sentence diagrams of the entire Greek NT
- Easily make custom maps, which we haven’t even talked about yet.
People keep looking at me because the guy shows something that freakin’ blows my mind and I say something like “Stop it. You’ve got to be kidding.” So yes, I’m a dork. But I’m a dork with an incredible research tool.
