Phrase and Syntax Search for the Layperson

Screen Shot 2019-09-05 at 8.21.09 AM

eRhema’s primary goal is to provide a free tool that enables the layperson to explore the Bible in its original languages. While Bible translations are indispensable, meanings are inevitably lost even in the finest translations. Ideally, every serious student of the Bible should undergo training in Biblical languages, but it is not a realistic expectation. By processing morphologically and syntactically tagged content and presenting it via a modern language interface, eRhema strives to let users without training in Biblical languages gain a deeper appreciation of the Bible’s messages as well as discover inter-textual relationships that may not be discernible in a translation.

A key element that makes eRhema’s goal possible is the availability of quality open-source Biblical data that we have witnessed in recent years. Biblical data with linguistic annocations such as BHSA provided by ETCBC and New Testament Syntax Trees created by Global Bible Initiative and Biblical Humanities has been foundational to our project.

This is really a neat tool for the lay person and relatively easy to use. CHECK IT OUT!

Here is the link to the free app:
