Hebrew Text and Syntax Updates

Hebrew Text and Syntax Updates
Three important updates are free to our users.
BHS-T which comes with the BHS Apparatus had serious missing tags. It has now been updated and is available for download through Check for Content Updates..

T. Yerushalmi Completed

T. Yerushalmi Completed
We released the Neusner/Zahavy edition of the Jerusalem Talmud three weeks ago. It was quickly brought to our attention that the text we received only had 28 tractates instead of 39. We are happy to announce that we now do have the complete text, available as a free upgrade to anyone who already bought the module.
The Jerusalem Talmud, or Yerushalmi, or Talmud of the Land of Israel, is a commentary on the oral law (the Mishnah) of Israel that ties that oral law to the written law (the Torah, the Hebrew Scripture). Completed about 200 years prior toThe Babylonian Talmud (Bavli), it records the first such compilation of Jewish scholarly thought.

Big Kittel at Last!

Big Kittel at Last!
The unabridged, ten-volume Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (TDNT) is one of the most widely used and respected theological dictionaries ever written. Edited by German scholar Gerhard Kittel, it often goes by the nickname "Big Kittel" to distinguish it from the abridged version (known as "Little Kittel"). In a recent survey of Accordance users, "Big Kittel" was the most requested lexicon or word study resource.

In print, TDNT is massive, offering detailed information about all the words in the Greek New Testament (over 2300) considered to be of religious or theological significance. Each article typically covers the use of a word in:

Norwegian Bible 2011

Norwegian Bible 2011

An immediate bestseller, the Norwegian Bibel 2011 is now available in Accordance.It comes in both the Bokmål and Nynorsk languages, each with parallel Notes and a Glossary.
In addition to three full time translators, the Norwegian Bible Society used scholars in Greek and Hebrew, theology and professional authors and poets, who are specialists in the Norwegian languages. Their participation in the project from stage one, has been an exciting and important feature. In addition to give the translated Norwegian texts a very high linguistic quality, it gave the new Bible broad publicity.

Unicode Bibles on iOS

There seems to be a delay in the release of the 1.5 app by Apple (perhaps indirectly due to the Worldwide Developer Conference). We have updated the Unicode Bibles (CNV, CUNP, KRV, RCUV, RUSB, and SHINKAI) so that they can be searched, but this requires Accordance version 9.6 on Mac, and 1.5 on the iOS. Since 1.5 is not yet available, users who updated the module find it crashes the app.

We have therefore uploaded the old versions of these modules for Easy Install. If your Bible is crashing on the iOS mobile device, please remove it from the Library, redownload it in Easy Install, and DO NOT UPDATE the module until you have version 1.5 of Accordance. The updated module has been left online ...
