It's hard to believe it's been three years since i first put the New Testament Hyper-Concordance up on SemanticBible. But today, i'm happy to announce that i've released a new version (1.2) of the Hyper-Concordance, one of the more popular features on SemanticBible. The start page that you should bookmark has moved here.

Some of the highlights:

  • The new release uses the English Standard Version text, thanks to the generosity of the folks at Crossway Bibles. In my opinion, this is the best contemporary English translation for study purposes, and i'm really happy to be able to offer it here.
  • I've added tabbed navigation to make it easier to find terms of interest, and cleaned up the displays.
  • There's a new feature that displays terms according to their frequency: you can turn it off if you like, but i find it helpful in navigating a long list of terms.

I'm still catching up with all the documentation on the website, so feel free to let me know if you find broken links or other problems. The cosmetics when viewed with Internet Explorer v. 6 are off in many cases, and downright bad on the index pages, because of IE's poor support for CSS. If you're a CSS maven and can tell me how to fix it, that would be great, though i'm not going to worry about it too much since you're better off with a more modern browser like Firefox anyway.

If you really prefer the previous RSV version (despite some known problems), you can find it here. I don't intend to maintain or update it, however.
