Hi, I am looking for some advice, I know nothing about the Greek tools and inexperienced in the language jargon. What I am looking for is something that functions like word studies/pictures where on the split screen (ios) I could have that kind of information. I am looking for something rigorous and modern, what fits that bill?

Thanks for any help!

William.

It might be helpful if you clarified what benefit you hope to receive from such a tool because it looks to me like your requirements contradict themselves. A rigorous word study is not going to fit in half of an iOS screen. Plus, a good word study will take into account the multiple places where a word occurs in order to discuss its range of meanings, and would thus be organized by word (like a dictionary) not by reference (like a commentary).

Hi Johnathan, I want something that can help me further understand the original language. I currently have the NIDNTT which is great but I'm looking for something more integrated than that, I'm quite happy to do a load of scrolling but I want something that can sit in the split screen. I use the NIDNTT if I need to explore in depth and I don't feel I need to add anything to that aspect as its a very good tool, but want something that sits in the split screen.

Hope that makes sense.

The problem with using the split screen is that it is intended for a parallel resources, like another Bible or a commentary. Dedicated word study tools are indexed alphabetically, so they don't scroll with the text. You'd need a commentary that includes a lot of good word studies in it. My "go to" for these kinds of commentaries is Eerdmans' NIGNT or UBS Translators' Handbooks (both for NT).

 

In Accordance on a computer, users can have more than one zone open (zones scroll independently). That isn't [currently] possible on iOS. Sorry.
