The Adaptive Bible

Just when you thought it was safe to start listing all the Bible versions .... it just got harder. While reading the blog Biblical Studies and Technological Tools I found a link to - The Adaptive Bible. The site "explores an automatically derived translation of the Bible." Selecting a chapter leads you to a display of verses with several choices for some of the words. Click on the your choice and that particular list collapses to that one word.

Now, for those of us counting versions, here's how it works: John 1:1 has 1x4x1x3x1 = 12 variations. John 1:2 has 24 variations as does John 1:3. So just for John 1:1-3 you have 6,912 variations. We'll probably get into scientific notation before we are out of the first chapter of John! Visit The Adaptive Bible and try it for yourself!

  1. Tried it. Completed all of Matthew chapter 1, but there is no way to save it, or download it. So, what is the point?
