Biblical Theologies Guide Section

Added a new section to passage-based Guides which provides results from Biblical Theology resources and functions similarly to other sections such as Systematic Theologies and Confessional Documents.

  • Results can be viewed by Subject or Resource.
  • Subject categories are Prolegomena, Theology Proper, Bibliology, Christology, Pneumatology, Soteriology, Anthropology, Hamartiology, and Other.
  • Resource groups are Johannine Literature, New Testament, Old Testament, Pauline Epistles, Reference, Thematic, and Whole Bible.

Custom Homepage Layouts

To save a custom layout, create the layout (from the defaults or from scratch), click the Layouts button, hover the mouse over the type of layout you are customizing, click the downward arrow and select “Replace with current layout”. From this menu you can also restore the default layouts.
Custom layouts can be saved for:

  • Go to Bible Reading – Bible passages from a Reading Plan
  • Go to Passage – entering a passage in the “Go” box
  • Go to Search – when running a search from the “Go” box
  • Go to Topic – when entering a query in the “Go” box and selecting an item from the dropdown
  • Go to Lectionary Reading – Bible passages from a lectionary

Added the ability to replace the default layouts that open when opening links from the Home Page, such as from the “Go” box or opening links to a lectionary or reading plan.

Hebrew Bible Manuscript Explorer

This interactive allows you to explore all sorts of data about manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible. See the About panel in the interactive for more detailed documentation on contents and scope.

Lemma in Passage

Divided the results for this Guide section into “Lemmas in Reference” and “Other Lemmas”.

  • “Lemmas in Reference” performs as previously, giving hits on where a lemma is quoted from a Bible reference in another resource such as a commentary.
  • “Other Lemmas” provides results for lemmas which are discussed in a resource but not quoted directly from the original source material.

The Lemma in Passage service now provides Lemma data in the Context Menu for resources that aren’t tagged with lemma information, such as “A Grammatical Analysis of the Greek New Testament”.

Systematic Theologies Interactive

This interactive allows you to explore different systematic theologies. See the About panel in the interactive for more detailed documentation on contents and scope.
