MORE Scholars Love Accordance!

During the 2016 Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) annual meeting (convention) in San Antonio, we had the opportunity to do video interviews with 41 more scholars.

Like the 17 we interviewed during the 2016 Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) annual meeting, these SBL scholars have been big fans of Accordance Bible Software for years, use it regularly, and love it!

Look for the edited video interviews after New Year’s. For now, here are quick snapshots of #18 to #37  thanks to videographer Melissa Brown.

Nov 29, 2016 Accordance Bible Software

Dr. Deborah Gill loves Accordance!

Dr. Deborah Gill, AGTS-Evangel U

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Accordance Bible Software is one of the best investments a seminary student can make!

• I heartily recommend it to all my Greek students, masters, and doctoral students.

• For the advanced student/scholar, Accordance makes possible profound exegetical research by enabling complex grammatical searches in Greek and Hebrew texts; and for the beginner, it facilitates biblical languages learning.

• Preachers and teachers will find Accordance's graphics modules, maps, and timelines to be a goldmine!

• Itinerant and international workers can take their whole library with them and access these resources on their computer or iOS device.

• You can customize WorkSpaces for specific types of research; and users can even build their own tools and sets of user notes.

I would encourage every student beginning in ministry to start out with Accordance!

—Dr. Deborah Gill, Chair of Masters Programs and Professor of Biblical Studies and Exposition, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary and Evangel University, www.AGTS.edu/faculty/gill.html

NEW! Barnes Notes on the Old Testament & the Pulpit Commentary

Recently, we released two new commentary sets for the Accordance Library that we want to make certain our users don’t miss. Both Barnes’ Notes on the Old Testament (8 volumes) as well as The Pulpit Commentary (22 volumes) have been long prized by preachers and teachers of the Bible. Both series assume a slight prior knowledge of biblical languages on occasion but will be accessible to anyone who wants to seriously study the Scriptures.

Barnes' Notes (OT) Barnes' Notes on the Old Testament
(8 volumes)

Albert Barnes (1798 - 1870), an American theologian and Presbyterian minister in the 19th century, was well-known for his preaching, but famous and most remembered for his written expository work of the Bible. Also, it’s worth noting that Barnes was an ardent abolitionist, publishing a number of anti-slavery works and quoted by prominent anti-slavery figures such as Frederick Douglas. Another contemporary, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, recommended Barnes' notes for understanding and preaching the Bible.

By his death in 1870, over a million copies of Barnes’ Notes on the New Testament had been distributed—quite a feat in the days before bookstore chains, online ordering, and Bible software! The genius of Barnes’ Notes lies in his ability to make biblical criticism accessible to the average reader. Accordance users have had access to Barnes’ Notes on the New Testament for a while, but now we are pleased to add all available Old Testament volumes as well, completing his exposition of the entire Bible.

Barnes Notes OT screenshot
Click/tap image for a larger view of Barnes' Notes on the Old Testament.

Barnes did not fully complete his notes over the entire Old Testament before his death, and what is available varies in detail. Genesis, for instance, is more complete and detailed than 1 Samuel. Some of the sections most popular in Barnes’ time, such as Daniel, Job, Ecclesiastes, and Isaiah are the most readable. Some volumes assume an understanding of Hebrew and some do not, but all volumes in the Accordance edition include Strong’s Numbers with any Hebrew words referred to in the text, making the content accessible to all.

Through Monday, November 28, Accordance users can obtain Barnes Notes on the Old Testament for a 24% discount off the regular price.

Pulpit Commentary_120The Pulpit Commentary
(22 volumes)

For over a century, The Pulpit Commentary has been an essential tool for expositors everywhere. Edited by H. D. M. Spence and Joseph S. Exell, this indispensable resource gives expositional direction to preachers for even the most difficult passages in the Bible.

The Pulpit Commentary is the result of a three-decade project, combining the work of over 100 contributors. Every passage can be broken down into three distinct sections: (1) Exposition with thorough verse-by-verse commentary of every passage in the Bible. (2) Homiletics with the "framework" or the "big picture" of the text. And (3) Homilies with four to six sample sermons from various authors.

Any pastor who takes homiletics seriously will want to invest in The Pulpit Commentary. Although some background in original languages is assumed by many of the contributors, all the content is accessible through consistent translation of Greek and Hebrew words. This invaluable resource can be used as both commentary and expository guide providing a one-stop toolkit for preaching the Bible.

Pulpit Commentary screenshot
Click/tap image above for a larger view of The Pulpit Commentary.

Currently, only the New Testament volumes of The Pulpit Commentary are available, but the Old Testament volumes will be added at a later date in a free update to those who have already purchased the series.

And right now, Accordance users can take advantage of Black Friday/Cyber Monday discounts on these volumes through midnight on Monday, November 28.

PhotoMuseum 2: Must-Have Timeline Companion

The Accordance Timeline contains more than a thousand historical periods, rulers, individuals, prophets, writings, and events. Click on any one of those items and you'll see its name, any alternate names, its dates, and any relevant Scripture references.

TimelinePopover

But what if you want more? After all, there may be a few of us who can't quite remember what happened during the reign of Amenophis II or what is written in the Enuma Elish.

You can, of course, link the Timeline to your favorite Accordance Bible dictionary. That will enable you to hover over most of the biblically significant Timeline items and get more information about them in the Instant Details box. However, even the most thorough Bible dictionary is unlikely to have articles about every Timeline item. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a resource that was custom written to work with the Timeline? You know, the same way the Bible Lands PhotoGuide was custom-written to work with the Accordance Atlas.

Photomuseum2_120 Actually, there is such a resource. The Accordance Bible Times PhotoMuseum is a resource designed to illustrate and explain the biblical world, and part of that includes the goal of offering an explanatory article (illustrated where possible) for every item on the Accordance Timeline. We've been working toward that goal for several years now, and the recently released PhotoMuseum 2 is a massive upgrade which now covers most of the major items on the Timeline. Here are three reasons I think the PhotoMuseum 2 is now a must-have companion to the Timeline.

1. PhotoMuseum 2 Now Covers Major Historical Periods and Rulers: Most of the major historical periods and rulers in Egypt, Syria, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, Rome, and Israel are now explained and illustrated in PhotoMuseum 2.

PhotoMuseum2-1

Curious to know about the pharaoh of the Exodus? Whether you're looking at the Conservative or Critical chronology, you can find the pharaoh whose dates correspond to the Exodus and then double-click to read more about Amenophis II (Conservative) or Rameses II (Critical)

2. PhotoMuseum 2 Links You to Important Source Material: PhotoMuseum 2 is designed to be a launching pad to other helpful resources. Eugene Merrill’s Kingdom of Priests was our primary source for the Timeline's Conservative dates in the B.C./B.C.E. period, so the PhotoMuseum links to its discussion of events in the lives of biblical figures like Joseph or Moses.

PhotoMuseum 2 also includes lots of articles about important ancient writings, and where transcriptions and translations of those writings are available, you'll find links to them. For example, the articles on the Siloam Inscription and Lachish Letters include links to the inscriptions in Hebrew and English, as well as to the relevant articles in Context of Scripture (COS) and Echoes from the Past. Assyrian and Babylonian inscriptions are linked to COS and Raging Torrent.

PhotoMuseum2-2

3. PhotoMuseum 2 Links You to the Bible: As I've been writing the PhotoMuseum, I've been amazed at how much understanding the biblical world helps to shed light on the text of the Bible. In most articles, you will therefore find numerous Scripture hyperlinks. Take the time to follow those links, and you'll find yourself reading those passages with new understanding.

For example, Daniel 5:29 tells us that the Babylonian ruler Belshazzar rewarded Daniel by appointing him to the third highest position in the kingdom. Why not second highest? Because Belshazzar was the crown prince ruling in the absence of his father Nabonidus. The PhotoMuseum articles on Nabonidus and Belshazzar both shed light on Daniel 5.

PhotoMuseum2-3

In addition to describing people mentioned in the Bible, the PhotoMuseum also describes the various objects and artifacts which were used by those people. The PhotoMuseum article on seals, for example, explains how seals were a mark of ownership used to prevent letters and other items from being opened by unauthorized persons. It contains links to biblical passages which mention the use of seals and signet rings, as well as metaphorical references to seals, such as New Testament references to Christians being "sealed with the Holy Spirit." Modern readers tend to think of sealing as closing something up tightly, but when you understand that to be sealed meant to be marked with a stamp of ownership, the meaning of this metaphor becomes much clearer.

PhotoMuseum2-4


Ultimately, the PhotoMuseum is designed to be a teaching tool which opens new avenues of discovery. Link to it from the Timeline to better understand the people and events of the ancient world, then follow its links to source material and Scripture to gain an even deeper understanding.

If you don't already have the PhotoMuseum, you can get PhotoMuseum 2 on sale today for under $60. If you already own the original PhotoMuseum, you can upgrade to PhotoMuseum 2 for less than $15.

Family Connections

Genealogies_120The Thanksgiving holiday in the United States is a celebration of family. It’s a time for parents and grandparents to hand down their recipes and instruct the younger generation in the art of carving a turkey. It’s a time to reflect on shared experiences, and a time to remember those who are no longer with us. In our very individualistic culture, it’s one of those rare occasions when we think beyond ourselves, when we take the time to revel in the family connections that have shaped our lives.

Family connections are central to the biblical narrative. Genesis introduces the human family, and genealogies connect the story across the centuries. Genealogies confirm prophecy, and remind us that God is concerned about us as individuals. They give us a glimpse into the lives of real people, and trace the messianic line across the testaments.

In her introduction to Genealogies of the Bible, author Nancy S. Dawson writes “Genealogies are one of the major literary genres of the Bible. They answer the fundamental question: Who are the people of God? … The genealogies establish a framework for understanding the biblical narratives in the broad historical, theological, and canonical contexts and reveal the big picture of God’s sovereignty and grace in salvation history.”

In Accordance, Genealogies of the Bible is more than a list of charts. Designed to be used as a commentary, it can also be accessed through the Info Pane, revealing family trees as you move through the text. There are over 340 family trees and lists of important biblical characters. But it’s much more than that. Explanations of the connections between individuals are presented in detail, important events in each person’s life are highlighted, cross-references are supplied, and extra-biblical resources are utilized to help paint a clear picture of even the most obscure biblical characters.

Genealogies Screenshot
Click for full-size image

Genealogies of the Bible extends its range of focus beyond the genealogies themselves. It provides a detailed look at the judges of Israel, kings of the United and Divided monarchy, returnees to Jerusalem in the post-exile, men in King David’s army, administrative officials, temple servants, and much more.

Genealogies of the Bible is a unique resource, not only for individual study, but for teaching as well. Each of the diagrams is completely searchable, and can be used with the Accordance “Slide Show” feature to produce stunning presentations.

When encountering genealogies in the biblical narrative, many of us either skim these sections or skip them altogether, perhaps even seeing them as irrelevant. Genealogies of the Bible brings these to life, reminding us why family connections are so important.

PhotoGuide Better Than Ever!

“Seeing is believing.” And believe us, you’ll feel transported in time as you peruse these volumes. The entire Bible Lands PhotoGuide Set contains hundreds of detailed articles and more than 4,500 high-quality photographs. All designed to make the Bible come alive for you and your audiences.

Now, we are pleased to announce enhancements to this important Graphics tool with new, more detailed regional PhotoGuide modules linked and integrated with the central PhotoGuide Overview Collection.

PhotoGuide Set

As before, the PhotoGuide can be accessed from the Accordance Library and searched separately, or linked with a double click on a place name from the Accordance Bible Atlas.

A description of each of the PhotoGuide titles follows below.

PhotoGuide Overview Collection: The Overview contains complete introductions and a selection of pictures from each available biblical site in each of the regions. Links to the expanded regional modules make it easy to access the additional images for any site. This Overview module is in all Graphics packages. Figure 1 shows a screen shot of how the Overview (on the right) can be used in parallel with the Bible Atlas.

Teachers and pastors especially love the Accordance Bible Lands PhotoGuide because the license allows you to use the images in teaching and preaching contexts.

Editor's Note

Without a doubt, the Accordance Bible Lands PhotoGuide has been a cornerstone of Accordance’s exclusive graphics tools for well over a decade. Much more than a simple collection of pictures, it’s an illustrated dictionary of biblical places.

First, each available biblical site contains an introduction that describes what significant biblical and historical events took place there. In this aspect it’s like a dictionary of Bible places.

Second, pictures and captions show and explain biblical landscapes, ancient structures, and the archeology of the sites where the people of the Bible lived and events of the Bible took place. In this aspect it is a photo-illustrated guide of Bible places.

These two powerful aspects of the Accordance Bible Lands PhotoGuide make it nearly as close as you can get to the places of the Bible without traveling to biblical lands yourself with an experienced guide to explain it!

"Accordance has been the game-changer for me"

This week at the ETS, AAR and SBL meetings in San Antonio, Texas, we look forward to seeing a number of active Accordance users, including Ian Vaillancourt, Th.D. (Cand.), Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto.

Ian Vaillancourt - portrait shot

 

Ian says: "Accordance has been the game-changer for me as I work on my dissertation and begin my teaching career. It was great as a pastor, but it has been indispensable as a scholar!"

He adds: "I recommend Accordance to all of my pastor-friends, students, etc. It's simply excellent on all fronts, including your commitment to updating the application regularly.

"I felt safe investing money in this software because I believe it will be around for a long time."

While a wealth of information is contained in these pages, the work’s most impressive features are the basic summaries of each book, a historical overview of the ancient Greco-Roman world, discussions of key theological issues, and the rich supplementary materials, such as illustrative tables, maps, bibliographies, and appendixes.

Brown-John Intro_120

An Introduction to the Gospel of John
--Raymond E. Brown

One of the most important aspects of this work, particularly to the scholarly community, is how it differs from the original commentary in several important ways. It presents, for example, a new perspective on the historical development of the Gospels, and shows how Brown decided to open his work to literary readings of the text, rather than relying primarily on the historical, which informed the original volumes. In addition, there is an entire section devoted to Christology, absent in the original, as well as a magisterial new section on the representation of Jews in the Gospel of John.
