Re: What software doesn't do ....

When I work with a text, I like to have the text up front and center. I'd like to be able to add notes to the text, do searches and incorporate the results, etc. In other words, I'd like a good word processor for Greek texts, extended with the tools typically found in Bible software. I'd also like ...

Re: What software doesn't do ....

* I'm reading the KJV and the passage seems obscure (that part isn't the ideal) * the verse has 3 interesting words, like "sealed" or "stumble" so I want to see the OT background * I right click and it presents the option, "Show all occurrences in Greek" * I click and I see all of the verses in LXX...

Re: γεγεγεννημενον in P66 (John 3:6)

It's just a scribal error.
Note that the first γε is at the end of one line, and the rest (γεγεννημενον) is on the next line.

Re: Legitimate word forms?

a person must think PHONOLOGICALLY This is a point that bears repeating. It's most helpful to think of language as sound. It is only secondarily represented visually with letters. I'm a little embarrassed to say it took me so long to really realize this, after wrestling with orthography in Qumran H...

Have people here been using the Amsterdam Database of New Testament Conjectural Emendation? What is it most useful for?
I know the INTF's New Testament Virtual Manuscript Room uses it. See http://ntvmr.uni-muenster.de/nt-conjectures

Re: Photius' Library, 17th cent. Type Script

While we're talking about paleography: If you want to develop and practice your deciphering skills, why not contribute to a New Testament project that still has its call for volunteer contributors up at http://cal-itsee.bham.ac.uk/itseeweb/ig ... ibute.html
It even has tutorials.

Re: Photius' Library, 17th cent. Type Script

If anyone knows more resources along these lines, perhaps with better images, I'd love to see them. Every once in a while I try to read a medieval manuscript and I just can't. A classic is at An introduction to Greek and Latin palaeography from which many examples in the above-mentioned PDF are tak...

Re: Photius' Library, 17th cent. Type Script

Are there resources that provide transcriptions along with images for various periods? The link I added to my original reply has over a dozen such examples, ranging from the eighth to fifteenth century, but the resolution is not always good. For reference, it is http://bibletranslation.ws/down/liga...

I am also interested in creating an E-Sword module from other electronic resource, if it is possible to use it freely.
I would point you to Hancock's Word .doc of Rahlfs's text, at http://www.users.dircon.co.uk/~hancock/sept.zip
