 the glossary

The main body of the text is arranged to show interrelationships between topics within eighteen relevant chapters.  Consequently, the topics are not organized alphabetically; rather, you use the glossary to look up the subjects.  The following is is an example of how to look up a topic: Holiness of God, for example.  We start by finding Holy in the glossary. The page number beside the main topic means that it is more comprehensive and relevant than any of its subtopics pertaining to Holiness.  Beneath it are a number of options that may or may not suit your interest. They are: 

                                    Holy 132k -- See also: Predestination

                                                Blind to the holiness of God  169b

                                                DO NOT GIVE [WHAT IS] HOLY TO DOGS  222b

                                                Garments of holiness  113g

                                                Holy conduct  92l

                                                Holy of holies  139j,224l

                                                HOLY SACRIFICE  188k

                                                Reject opportunity to be holy  145i

                                                Unholy sacrifice  173e

                                                What God cleanses becomes holy  103b

Notice that every page number is followed by a letter (such as 132k) where that topic can be referenced in the main text. 132 is the page number, while the "k" can be found along the left margin of the page, plotting it location on the page. Notice that some of the entries in the glossary are in uppercase letters, some in capital, some in italic and the rest are in normal print.  Each print style means something about the magnitude of the topic: 

Print Style

Topic Size

*Bold capital letters

Chapter titles

Capital letters

Major topics

Italic print

Minor topics

Normal print

Single entries

 

This helps the reader choose the topic based on his depth of interest.  For instance he might not want to pick a major topic if he only wanted to prepare for a single Bible study, but he might choose a major topic if he intended to conduct an entire series on a subject. This kind of outline format automatically places the topic in context to create implications between topics without using a lot of words that would only get in the way. Notice too that when clicking on the page code (132k) he would find 1Pet 1-14,15 beside the topic.  This is the key verse that typifies the topic, so if someone wanted to know a something about the subject without investing much time, looking up the key verse would be a good place to start.

the index

The index is a dynamic and useful dimension of the program.  It is designed to perform the opposite function of the glossary. Instead of combining ideas, it dissects them, showing each topic within the framework of the main body, making it a cross reference instrument. The index is organized according to the books, chapters, and verses of the Bible.  It is designed to look up verses, allowing you to study Scripture in light of the topics they address. 

Think of Jeanís Bible Study in light of the configuration of an atom. The New Testament is like the nucleus, while the main body of the Concordance, the Glossary and Index revolve around it, representing various points of view.

              

 

  Conclusion: Using the various search methods on this website, we can experience the deep mysteries of the Bible unfolding in a flood of revelation and wisdom that have never availed themselves so readily through any other method or tool.
