  • Re: Atlas tool and Jacob meeting Esau

    [quote user="Dave Hooton"] [quote user="Sean Boisen"]Note that Jacob and Esau Make Peace is the "parent" episode of the two events Esau Settles in Edom (told later in Gen 36) and Jacob Meets Esau in Gen 33.[/quote] It doesn't explain the three events that I mentioned.

  • Re: Atlas tool and Jacob meeting Esau

    All judgments about the locations of ancient cities, roads, and travels come from Dr. Barry Beitzel, our cartography consultant for the older Biblical Places Maps as well as Atlas. As i recall, there was quite a bit of discussion about this sequence of events, which is not completely clear from the text. Carta's Illustrated Bible Atlas appears to have

    [quote user="Bob"] Sean, Thanks for the clarification and information. Although I don't completely see this viewpoint, I will bow to the scholars, and will have to research more about this to gain more understanding. Thanks again, Bob [/quote] There are many cases where honest people might interpret the facts differently, and we have our hands full

  • Re: Atlas tool and Jacob meeting Esau

    [quote user="Bob"] The Atlas shows Esau meeting Jacob at Mahanaim, but the text seems to indicate to me that they met around Peniel, after Jacob wrestles with "the man", which is at Peniel. So, is the Atlas map incorrect at this point, or my understanding? Bob [/quote] Thanks for the question Bob. Here's the reasoning: In our Biblical Events data, the

    [quote user="xnman"] Is there a way to add books to the Factbook search to where Factbook searches them all automatically? Inquiring minds ... you know... Edit: So I get to thinking.... "I've got a topic guide".... so I go to Topic Guide and search for "Zechariah"... It lists "Naves Topical Bible", "Book of Zechariah".... but none of my dictionaries

    [quote user="Dave Hooton"] [quote user="Rick Brannan (Faithlife)"] The Syntactic Force data (based on Lexham Syntactic Greek New Testament Data) was never intented to be comprehensive for each feature annotated (that would take a lifetime); instead, annotators focused on what they deemed to be the more significant annotations for the passage in question

If so, I'd like to understand it and see if it's possible some other way (given the specific constraints on the SGNT data that Rick noted).

  • Re: ATTN: Sean and Kyle - pericope data set

    I’m definitely interested in mining lectionary data, mostly for passage ranking data. I don't know enough about the data, but it might be possible for us to come up with one or more sets of "lectionary pericopes" that we could ship. I don't know when we might get around to this, though. I'm less optimistic about commentary units: there's so much

    Thanks to all for their input. I'll be simplifying the descriptions in Counseling Themes for woman (and man), which are meant to be concise, not exhaustive, and more straightforward than clinical. Note the Counseling Themes dataset already has an entry for Intersex and some other gender-related subjects: that may help with addressing some of the issues
