Bible Software Shootout

At the 2009 annual meeting of SBL (Society of Biblical Literature), Olive Tree participated in the Bible Software Shootout, a friendly competition showcasing Bible software's ability to answer real-life research questions.

Performing alongside Bible software peers like Logos, Bible Works, and Accordance, Olive Tree was the only mobile platform for Greek and Hebrew research.

Competitors answered the following 5 questions:

  • Give the parsing of a word and its meaning from a standard source.
  • Show all the occurrences of a word in the NT and LXX and show the Hebrew word which corresponds with the Greek in the LXX (if there is a correspondence).
  • Find all the occurrences of in Mathew's gospel followed by a finite verb within the clause.
  • I want to study a part of speech, e.g., demonstrative pronouns or interjections. How do I get all of the lemmas for that part of speech, get all the occurrences of those lemmas, and the results organized in such a way that I could write an article/monograph on that part of speech from the data?
  • I want to study the inflections of the Hebrew middle weak verb, and I want to see what the range of possible variations are for each of the conjugations (perfect, imperative, etc.), person, number, gender, stem. This means I need to find all the middle weak verbs, find all their occurrences, and organize them in such a way that the variations of their inflections are immediately apparent. The goal of the data organization would be to allow me to write an article about variations of the Hebrew middle weak verb.
