  1. Although I am in the Outline Browser, I assumed the drop down list was still pericopes ... although it would be very nice to be able to select from the outline titles & ranges.
  2. After a bit of research I decide this line was probably representing this resource: Sawyer, Leicester Ambrose. The New Testament, Translated from the Original Greek, with Chronological Arrangement of the Sacred Books, and Improved Divisions of Chapters and Verses. Revised and Improved. Boston: Walker, Wise, & Company, 1861.
  3. This resource has no outlines so I assume this is a pericope.
  4. I discovered this resource has no pericope set available for the Compare Pericope tool ... I would assume that there should be a one-to-one correspondence between being in a pericope set and being in the pericope list. This particular book has treated each chapter as a pericope ... but uses it's own chapter boundaries.
  5. The actual title given for the pericope of Mark 17 is "AN ADDITION BY AN UNKNOWN WRITER" which to me is a bit more descriptive than "SAWYER1861 Mark 17" in that the former would lead me to guess "long ending of Mark" while the latter leads me to what is "SAWYER1861"
  6. Or is this an oddity coming out of the verse mapping routine? I'm really stretching to make sense of this.

So why does this pericope have this format? Are there others like this in the sense of being far from expected? And why won't it pop up as a pericope if I start typing SAWYER in the reference box?

This is somewhere between a bug and feature. SAWYER1861 is the Bible Verse map for Sawyer's The New Testament, Translated from the Original Greek. It's the only Bible in our library that has a Mark 17 which happens to map to the additions to Mark usually found in Mark 16.

As far as the behavior of the application goes, everything is fine. However, we never made a pericope set for SAWYER1861 so the UI is falling back on some built in behavior.

I'm hoping to make more pericope sets sometime this spring/summer. I'll be able to make a pericope set for this Bible which should make the UI less confusing.

Thanks Kyle. I knew there were missing pericope sets ... I just didn't think it through to recognize this as a consequence.
