Workshop #1
On the Record: Importance of Genealogies of the Bible

Dr. Nancy S. Dawson

This workshop will explore an important commentary module offered in Accordance called Genealogies of the Bible which is perhaps the most comprehensive record of biblical genealogies ever developed. Genealogies are foundational to understanding the biblical narratives; this workshop will explore family trees across the entire Old and New Testaments., encompassing patriarchs, judges, kings, and more. No knowledge of Accordance required.

Workshop #2
How to Illuminate the Bible with Accordance

Dr. Roy Brown

Discover how Accordance can help you illuminate the background and context of the Bible. Using a variety of Accordance titles, the focus of this session will be on how pictures, objects, inscriptions, and such can help one to better understand the Bible. No knowledge of Accordance required.

Workshop #3
Introduction to Apologetics with Accordance

Abram K-J

1 Peter 3:15 says, “But set apart Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to give a defense (Greek apologia) to all who ask you for an account of the hope that is in you.” This workshop explores apologetics as a defense of the Christian faith. What is the content of Christian apologetics? How do apologists approach their task? This workshop will also highlight apologetic resources available in Accordance.
