I will also be making use of some pretty amazing software form Logos: Logos Bible Software Series X: Scholar’s Library. This was a great present from my parents for Christmas that will be really useful, especially in Biblical Interpretation. I have already been amazed at the power of this software and the amout of resources available in it. Check it out!

Since this isn’t the most interesting post, I suppose I could bring up something controversial: the King James is a fairly poor translation and is not very accurate to the original Greek text. Enjoy!


And check out some of the discussion over at the original post. [UPDATE: The original post and comments are no longer available. :( Sorry!]
