Today the great guys and gals at the ESV Bible are unveiling a big update to the audio New Testament at the ESV Online Edition.
What’s the big news? Well whereas you could only hear complete chapters at a time, now you can drill into and hear single verses at a time … or better yet, enhance your Bible studys and Sermons with the ability to have invividual verses read on command.
How is this possible? Well from what I understand, the crack technical staff there listened to the entire audio New Testament and marked by hand where each verse begins and ends. Expect a technical writeup in the near future.
Where can you hear this? All you need to do is click on the "Listen" link whenever you’re browsing a passage in the ESV New Testament. Want a sample? The Beatitudes are a good place to start.
Hmmm … wonder if this feature mean that Verse-of-the-day podcasts are coming soon? What’s that little birdie … you say yets? They’re coming Friday, May 6. Thank’s (s)tweetie!
Hmmmmmm … wonder if this means I need to update Scripturizer to take advantage of this? … Probably.
