I’ve had a few people ask me what exactly I’m planning to say at the BJU Greek forum this coming Thursday (April 10).

I own all three of those Bible software platforms, and they can all do a lot. Like a lot. But 99% of the time, I’m not interested in a lot. I’m interested in those five things.

I think you will be, too. So come!
