Hi Joseph, this is great work, thank you for your continued efforts!

I was wondering, will the documents/files in the Faithlife group be updated to reflect these, or should we update our own copies manually now?

Thanks Joseph!

I didn't know that there was a group for this.  I didn't start it, but if you find it, post it so I can see about it.

Oh my gosh brain dead, so sorry - it shows what happens when I post before that first cup of coffee. I was referring to the Theology/Denomination tags, not the OT/NT Denver Seminary. There is no FL group for that that I am aware of. Sorry for the confusion I created!
