We live in an age in which computers are changing countless aspects of our lives. One of the things they are changing for people of faith is the way that we study the Bible.
Over the last few decades, I’ve watched how Bible study software has developed, and it’s reached a point at which it’s capable of doing truly amazing things—things that were practically impossible only a few years ago, even for people with extensive research libraries at their disposal.
Among these things is the ability of biblical scholars to do complex studies of the way words and grammar are used in the biblical texts. These have shed new light on how the authors of the sacred books wrote and what they meant.
