FOSS and the Greek NT


Hi. Is anyone familiar with any FOSS applications that would be of benefit to a student of the Greek New Testament? I found BibleTime, which provides a few Greek texts, but so far nothing else helpful.

I'm not expecting a full-fledged BibleWorks alternative, but it would be cool if there were some FOSS tools out there to help with translation or analysis.

I didn't realize there were any applications that support the greatest story ever told. You should see the movie Zeitgeist, then tell me your thoughts on the bible.

That's a helpful response, asymptote.

Hey CoderMan, try this website:

http://www-users.cs.york.ac.uk/~fisher/gnt/

It's a web-based interface to the Greek New Testament.

Bibletime provides more than a "few greek texts"; not sure
whether you've spotted the fact that it's based on
http://www.crosswire.org/sword ,
which is pretty rich in features. There's also a Gnome
counterpart to bibletime, gnome sword. Not sure which
features you miss, since I have no idea what bible
works is/does.


cheers
Tink
