e-Sword 7.8.2

On Friday (23 December) Version 7.8.2 of e-Sword was released.

The most noticable enhancement is a "Harmony of the Gospels" component.
This can be accessed by clicking on "Bible" on the menu bar. The first item listed is "Gospel Harmony". Click on that and the new screen appears.

Currently, the only Harmony of the Gospel resource that is abvailable, is based upon Robertson's work. From the design of the screen, it looks like additional resources will released.

Depending upon how this component works, it might be possible to add resources such as
  • Prophecies of the Messiah in the Tanakh and their Fullfilment in the New Testatament;
  • Parallel passages in First Kings, Second Kings, First Chronicles, and Second Chronicles;
  • Pericopes of the Gospels;
  • The Miracles of Jesus;
  • Other New Testament Miracles;
  • Miracles found in the Old Testament;
I am not saying that these will be created, merely that it might be possible to create them.

I'll wait and see what happens in the future.

Where to Find e-Sword Support

I uploaded the December version of The e-Sword Utility Program FAQ: Where to Obtain Support for e-Sword to eSwordFAQs on Saturday.

One new support list was added: eSwordemailClassic.
This focus of this list is the creation of resources created purely for their reading pleasure.

Pocket e-Sword

I uploaded a slightly revised version of The Pocket e-Sword FAQ to http://www.esnips.com/web/eSwordFAQs/ on Saturday.

I added a couple of stub sections, and deleted information that was either outdated,or inaccurate, or both. As it is, it does not cover any of the common questions or problems that Pocket e-Sword users have. :( Those will be added later.

The more useful document I uploaded was The Pocket e-Sword Resource List. This contains a list of all of the resources for Pocket e-Sword that I am aware of. The thing that surprised me were the number of user created resources, that were copyright violations. URLs for those items typically were not provided.
