BibleWorks 8 is now available for order (with the product shipping in mid-to-late-December).
Here are just a few highlights of the new release:
Three top-grade grammars are now a part of the base package:
- Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament (Wallace)
- Introduction to Biblical Hebrew Syntax (Waltke & O’Connor)
- A Grammar of Biblical Hebrew (Joüon & Muraoka)
They’ve added the searchable Greek text of the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha along with a translation of the actual Greek text. These translations reflect the actual Greek text rather than one of the other ancient versions (thus giving a more reliable representation of the Greek text than may be available in Charles or Charlesworth). This means that in the BW8 base package the user has access to most early Greek Jewish and Christian literature (Josephus, Philo, LXX, NT, Apostolic Fathers and now the Greek Old Testament Pseudepigrapha).
A new Phrase Matching Tool/Related Verses Tool that allows users to find other passages in the Hebrew or Greek text that have similar phrasing. The new Phrase Matching Tool takes your current verse and finds all verses containing similar phrases. The new Related Verses Tool finds all verses using a specified number of the same words found in a current verse.
