HeavenWord New Testament Studies Toolkit

Want to do some NT Bible STUDY? This FREE app helps the Bible student learn more of the New Testament by providing special focus on how the English translations correspond to the words of the original Greek texts. You can explore the whole New Testament of the Bible, from the passage down to each verse, and from each verse down to word by word study. Enhance your understanding of the New Testament by better understanding the connections to the Greek texts. You can even hear any word in the Greek New Testament pronounced! New Testament Bibles: • English: The New American Standard (NASB) & King James (KJV). • Greek: SBL Greek NT, Westcott & Hort, Robinson - Pierpont, and Textus Receptus. Resources: • Audio: The pronunciation of any word form in any of the GNT texts can be played. (Over 19,500 audio clips included!) • Coding: All NT Bibles are coded to Strong's based numbering and Greek Bibles are also parsed. • Definitions: Souter's Pocket Lexicon, NASB Exhaustive Concordance Greek Dictionary, and Strong's Enhanced Greek Dictionary. • Offers English glosses for over 21,000 unique Greek NT inflected word forms.¹ Levels: • Passage: You can use an English or Greek text as your primary text for reading passages. • Passage: The Greek texts offer an adjustable graded reader² which provides brief definitions for relatively rare Greek words. • Verse: You can compare different Greek and English texts side-by-side on a word-by-word basis. • Verse & Word: The app can be used as an analytical lexicon. • Word: View word and lexical frequencies as well as relevant Greek dictionary articles. • Concordance: For Greek NT texts, you can concord all Strongs / lexical forms—sorted by their parsings—so you can compare similar forms together. Features: • Share: This app supports sharing Bible text, reference text and user notes via the Windows 8 Share charm. • Bookmarks: You can bookmark any verse and jump to that passage from anywhere in the app. • Verse notes: Enter notes on any verse and they will appear with the verse in Passage and Verse levels. • Tips: There is a “Tips” panel under Settings with some helpful hints. And it's all FREE!³ ¹ So what does "English glosses for over 21,000 unique Greek NT inflected word forms" mean and how is it helpful? Glad you asked! Merely coding a Greek text to Strong's based numbering is only a little helpful. The following words all are coded to Strong's 25 which has the "lexical" (or "dictionary") meaning of "to love": ἀγαπήσατε — "to love" ἠγαπήσαμεν — "to love" ἠγάπησα — "to love" ἠγάπησάς — "to love" ἠγάπησαν — "to love" ἀγαπήσαντι — "to love" ἀγαπήσητε — "to love" … Uh ... okaaaay. How about this instead? ἀγαπήσατε — "begin (y'all) to love" ἠγαπήσαμεν — "we loved" ἠγάπησα — "I loved" ἠγάπησάς — "you loved" ἠγάπησαν — "they loved" ἀγαπήσαντι — "to (him) having loved" ἀγαπήσητε — "y'all should begin to love" … Is the second set MUCH more helpful? We thought so. (You don't even have to know what an "aorist active indicative" is. But if you do, good for you!) That's why we need over 21,000 glosses, instead of the roughly 5,600 Strong's lexical (dictionary) meanings. … Oh and if you're scared of those funny looking Greek letters, keep in mind that the app can transliterate all the Greek for you, which means you can see the Greek like this instead: agapḗsate — "begin (y'all) to love" ēgapḗsamen — "we loved" ēgápēsa — "I loved" ēgápēsás — "you loved" ēgápēsan — "they loved" agapḗsanti — "to (him) having loved" agapḗsēte — "y'all should begin to love" Even if you've never taken Greek, or it's been so long you've forgotten most everything, this app can help you make better sense of the New Testament by understanding more of the Greek texts. Oh, and did you notice "y'all" showing up in the glosses? There's a reason for that, and it's not just an appreciation for Southern expressions. Greek distinguishes between a second person SINGULAR (in English, "you") and a second person PLURAL (in English, "you"). So, did you notice something? English uses the SAME word. Not helpful, really. So for the second person plural, enter the very helpful "y'all" to distinguish the plural—any Southern charm is just a bonus. If you're trying to learn or understand Greek, we think you'll find these English glosses far more useful than a standard or reverse interlinear. ² So what's a graded reader? Even if you've taken a couple of semesters of Greek, you probably don't have every Greek word meaning memorized. (Heh.) You learned the high frequency words, but words that don't occur very often … have you breaking out the lexicons. Enter the graded reader. Right there, alongside the passage you are reading, we list the infrequently occurring words and their helpful English glosses. And you can adjust the degree of help you get from the graded reader: Don't show* Three or less Ten or less Twenty or less Fifty or less Two hundred or less * Also known as "Don't help me, I'm a masochist" mode. Plus you can turn the inclusion of proper names on or off, depending on whether you find them pretty obvious—or not. This allows you to tune to graded reader to your increasing familiarity with the Greek as you progress. ³ But we do appreciate encouragement. If you like the app, in the About panel in Settings there is an OPTIONAL $1.99 donation. And please don't forget to tell thousands of your very closest friends about the app. Thank you!

It does not have as much research resources as the Old Testament Studies Toolkit. Nonetheless, I appreciate the effort and what is available.

There are other packages that do similar things, but their price is through the roof. This app lets you work through a passage with the level of detail needed to teach an pretty deep adult Bible study.

I love J. Vernon McGee, he has the gift of teaching difficult matters in an easy-to-understand way. This app will benefit anyone wanting to learn from the best.

you can't beat this app for the price (free). Great quick reference when I have a quick question about a Greek word.

Just downloaded this and have played around with it a little bit... I really like this app! Pro: more than just KJV. (NASB too). Strong's ref -can look at it on a basic level, or click and go deeper!! FREE! Everything is available off line. Books are grouped into categories. chapters have sub headings to easily what I'm looking for. "Arrows" at the top of the screen to jump to the next passage. Quick response to questions. Con: Only NT - would appreciate the OT too. There's no quick start manual to figure out how to use this well... I had to hunt and swipe around to find what I was looking for. I think that must be why they have the link to their website. I asked a question and received a response pretty quickly (under and hour?!) Over all, this is the only free, quality Bible study app I have found for my new Surface Pro that is offline (important to me), and had Strong's. Thanks!!!

I can't get the concordance to show up anywhere. Where are the instructions to make it work?

I love this app. So far, it is the only one that comes with the NASB for free, has references, and has the Greek version to compare to. My only complaint is that it does not have the old testament as well. Would love for them to expand. Awesome!

I am using this program alongside the regular HeavenWord Toolkit. Between the two, most of the core resources I use for teaching preparation are available to me. They have done an amazing job on this. It is very simple to use. If you are not sure where to find something, check out the tips under the settings charm. Thank you for your effort to provide quality tools.
