  • Nestle-Aland 28th edition

    Will Logos please keep us posted on whether it will publish the NA 28th edition? Also, it looks like they'll be publishing digital manuscripts, etc., hope those will be integrated into L4.

    Dear Michael, Many thanks...and I do sincerely apologize if I offended you or the good people at Logos...all of whom make my life a daily wonder of Bible exploration! I went cover to cover in A. T. Robertson and all of the major available grammars about 15 years ago in order to get a sense of where syntactical studies have gone. My sense is that our

    Hi Jeremy, thanks for the response. Would experts have difficulty separating the wheat from the chaff in Thayer? 1. It's not the expert who is depending on Thayer. The reality is that many with little or no facility in Greek link into it via the Strong's numbering system, and quote it as authoritative. 2. Yes, an expert would have trouble separating

    Hi Brad, yeah...and I'm not anti-business. AND I will continue to squeeze the family budget for Logos sources.

    [quote user="Jeremy"]How do you know that experts can find what is reputable in it? Yes you might not be able to, but my points stands: you aren't an expert (and neither am I FYI)! The definition of an expert is that they could probably figure Thayer out.[/quote] Well...I won't get into a dialogue about who is an expert. Read my essay on Thayer and

    [quote user="Michael Aubrey"] [quote user="Gary Shogren"]One of the Amazon.com reviewers identified himself as a "Byzantinist" and said he found some help in Sophocles. This rings true with me...nevertheless, 98+% of Logos users are going to be working in biblical exegesis, not Byzantine Greek, and I see very little help in Sophocles for them. I say

    [quote user="Matthew C Jones"] Spurgeon gave out recommendations as well. But if your idea and Floyd's plan are the wave of the future, I better get my Thayers order in quickly.

    [quote user="Philip Spitzer"] [quote user="Gary Shogren"]What we're talking about is a lexicon like Thayer's which obscures Paul's meaning due to introducing ideas which Paul never had, as opposed to better tools which offer better data and thus help us to understand the apostles better.[/quote] I certainly respect your opinion, and would probably agree

    [quote user="Matthew C Jones"] I want Thayer for Thayer's sake. He looks nice on the shelf next to BDAG and I have a choice when I stretch out my hand for a lexicon, even if I always retrieve BDAG.[/quote] Huh. Well, this may be as far as dialogue can take us then! I have copy of Thayer too...but I keep it more as an historical piece than a vital daily

    Hi Lynden, Well, it's a question of economics and sales rather than objective worth. They are cheap, and they are advertised as the best...no wonder they're scooped up.

    Hi David, With regard to studying the history of exegesis, here's my thought: If someone were writing about the history of dentistry, and a publisher said, here's the classic handbook on dentistry from 1842, you historians of dentistry should buy it...then by all means, yes. If someone were practicing dentistry, and a publisher advertises, here's the

    Dear Michael, There is a difference between old and obsolete: a work becomes "obsolete" at the point beyond which the data are no longer of sufficient reliability to warrant its employment by the average user. Given that, a desire for up-to-date works isn't necessarily a "lust", apologies to Danker. For most people, it's a deep desire to have reliable

    [quote user="Matthew C Jones"]Did not all the scholars of the day tell us those resources were the latest and most reliable we could get based on the newest discoveries and textual criticism? Today we have the latest scholars telling us just how bad and unreliable the last century's scholars were. I bet in 50 years the majority of today's experts will

    Thanks! The list is pretty spare, it has direct quotations only (and even then it seems to be missing some). Thanks anyway.

    Thanks, although apparently some or all of these books are not sold separately - the two you marked, for example.

  • Searching for a Bible Reference within a Collection

    How do I search for Bible references within a Collection? For example, I have Comfort's Texts of the Earliest NT Greek MSS (wonderful thing to have in e-form), and say I want to look up where all 70 of those mss have John 1:1, so I can see all the early papyri readings in one fell swoop.
