    Of course. All those are included in the base package.

    Default a quick start to Greek word studies

    I share the attached handout with our New Testament students. It's the 'quickest' way to get into search the different Greek texts in BibleWorks. There's more you can do, of course, but when I only have a 1/2 hour to instruct students on using BW, this is what I use.

    I'm trying to do a word study on blasphemy (NA28 - greek form) in Matt 12:31.

    I used View > Choose Display Versions to add Josephus and Josephus Morphology, Philo and and Philo Morphology, OT Greek Pseudipegrapha, Apostolic Fathers, etc. However, these didn't show up on my browse window. At the moment, I'm only seeing my existing english and greek versions in the browse window.

    I still went ahead to do a search on lemma for the greek word of blasphemy and nothing new showed up.

    What have I done wrong? Or does this word so happen to not appear anywhere else?

    Thank you!

    See this link. You need to change the search limit to either Search and Display All Same Language Versions or Search and Prune All Same Language Versions when you do the morph search.
