Need a buying opinion.

I've been looking at The Lexham High Def NT for its focus on breaking down verses. I'm not 100% positive, but I think that product is just focusing on English. And initially, that was fine with me.

But then I started thinking just in general terms about the easiest way to compare Greek and English side by side, and wondering if I could do that through the LHD-NT.

That led me to the bundled product: http://www.logos.com/product/3888/lexham-discourse-greek-new-testament-bundle

I'm assuming first that this gives the breakdown in both Greek and English, but not sure if it's a side-by-side thing or intended to be used separately.

I may already have the side-by-side capability and not even know it. (I'm on the Bronze package and will be going to one of Proctor's seminars this year to get up-to-speed.)

I guess the first question is whether an English/Greek side by side is already possible with what I have. But in relation to the LHD-NT bundle, would I be able to do the side by side with the breakdown of verses that is the centerpiece of that product?

Thanks.

Thanks for taking the time to take and post the screenshots. I appreciate that.

What I'm wondering now is if these two Bible versions (Greek and English) are linked in such a way that if I'm scrolling on the Greek Bible, the English Bible scrolls as well. (Much like your open Bible and Commentary are linked.)

I'm guessing it doesn't and that these are individual resources that just happen to be sold together in the case of bundled product.

Thanks again for the screenshots!

Ugh. Didn't look closely enough at the second shot to see the English in the Greek. Sorry about that.

Lexham High Definition New Testament lacks interlinear tagging so cannot highlight morphological use:

Wiki has Visual Filter examples => http://wiki.logos.com/Extended_Tips_for_Highlighting_and_Visual_Filters#Examples_of_visual_filters

Thread => Suggestion: Discourse Greek NT more customizable includes a Personal Book alternative for Lexham Glossary.

Well, actually it does what I guess you are looking for. Please have a look at the screenshot below.

1. The Greek text above scrolls nicely with the English text below (notice the little A in the left corner, indicating that these two resources synchronize).

2. Notice the highlighted text in the English below, showing automatically the Greek that goes with it in the resource above (you get this when you tick a box called sympathetic highlighting).
