I just received a new base package with BDAG. What is the difference between BDAG and BDG? I own both and they look to have the same information.

 A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature, 3rd ed. (BDAG)  LLS:46.30.18

 A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature (BDG)  LLS:46.30.2

Basic info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauer%27s_Lexicon 

The third edition also has attempted to give definitions, not just glosses of most words. Example:

BGD:

BDAG:

BDAG is the 3rd edition of this resource, BDG is the second edition of this resource. A lot of links in your Logos library are to the older second edition and so it is worthwhile owning both versions. Use BDAG when looking up a Lemma but having BGD on hand when another resource in your library links to it is very helpful. For this reason many people without BGD have asked for it to be made avai again to purchase.

I'm 99.9% sure I owned BDG (wasn't it called BAGD or something?), but my first late-90s account somehow got disconnected from my second account (tbh, I don't even know how I ended up with a second account). I had a different email address for my first account (remember Juno? remember dial-up?). Anyway, it's always chapped me that I "lost" this older account and whatever things were associated with it. Aside from BDG, I also remember buying Fox's Five Books of Moses as one of my early stand-alone purchases. I think that was how I first realized that my then current account was disconnected from my original account, when I couldn't find FBM in my library. Fortunately, I was able to "convince" someone in CS to restore that to my account, but I feel pretty sure there were a bunch of other titles I originally had that got lost...BDG being one of them.

Have you ever asked Faithlife to see if they can merge it? If you know what that old email address was or can provide enough information that they can find it...

I've contacted them about it and tried, but they can't find my old email or I don't remember it correctly. If they could search for old Juno email addresses, that might work, but I was told that isn't a thing.

This does remind me, though, that I was going through some old papers a few weeks back and found an old list (an old library print out?) that had an old email attached to it. I'll see if I can re-find that and give them another call.

In resolving similar issues for WS converts posting on the forums recently, I think they've done lookups based on people's names, not just their email address. That might help. Other information associated with the old account might be searchable at their end nowadays as well.
