Posted 07 December 2009 - 08:43 PM

Of course I've invited a couple of JW's into my home to do bible study, as I love studying the bible. The first time they came, we couldn't even get past the first page of there book entitled, "What does the Bible Really Teach?" as they were telling me stuff that wasn't in the bible. So I invited them back for another "study session". Only this time, I plugged my mac up to a 50" plasma and we all followed along with a few scripture versions side by side in Accordance. Needless to say, they were impressed as I dug deeper into the greek and the Hebrew of certain words, but then the inevitable question was asked:

"Is there a NWT module for that software? At first I wanted to say, of course there isn't. Why would there be? But now I wish that there were so that they could see what I already know about the NWT.

So... will there ever be a NWT module for Accordance, I didn't see one in the online store....

Thanks,

Chris

You could grab the text here and make your own User Bible for your own use.

I should have explained myself. Has anyone taken the text and converted it to Accordance? Once I finish up my classes I might take it up. But if other people have, then I won't do it.

Hi Steve

 

You are fast.

 

I have done the german version to Accordance (by hand) and it was a lot of work with all the <sup> </sup> and <br>and ¶  to get the same visualize than the original. But I must say Accordance does it not correctly show in every verse on a new line. The <br> makes a space line which is wrong, this must be if ¶ is set. And in the reading modus the ¶ in the chapter is also ignored, but there the <br> is correct only as new line.

 

 

 

I have converted it from the epub, but all verses are there in one line in TextWrangler.

How does you make that the new verse comes in a new line?

 

 

Greetings

 

Fabian

Hi Fabian,

 

I was not worried about trying to get it to look exactly the same as the original. It is not a translation I will use much, just if I get into discussions with Jehovah's Witnesses. I used the paragraph mark to get spaces between paragraphs (if selected in preferences) and the <br> to break between verses and start them on a new line. i was not worried about splitting the poetic verses further.

Hello Steve

 

Thanks for your replay. In which App do you do this?

I couldn't find it.

Hi Fabian,

 

I just did this in Word. I copied the text into Word and then converted it to a format ready for import into Accordance.

I used macros to set the '¶' in the place where the paragraphs are throughout the text. I had some trouble with there being too many paragraphs and the individual verses in Psalms, Job, Proverbs etc were paragraphed which gave a space between each so I used a macro to convert them to use <br>. Then I saved the Word document as a text document and imported it.

 

This is the first User Bible I have set up so it was a useful as a teaching exercise.

If you would like to share the user module I would be interested in having it in Accordance it is always useful to have something like this handy to compare it.

I would like to have a copy in Accordance as well. I live in a parsonage, so JW's typically stay away, but it would be good to have on hand.


In Christ,

Tim Hall

I am not sure but seeing as the website above is making it available freely and as long as no changes are made, nor fees charged, one would guess they wouldn't object to it's being shared.

It is a shame it dose seem to have some interesting fresh translations of the text... i am well aware of the questionable translations as well.
