Future popup window ideas…what are your thoughts?

We are considering a new popover for our parsed text in the iPhone & Android platforms. This would include resources such as the CWSB and GNT Parsed. These diagrams are “wireframes” and not actual polished screens. I am not sure if the screens for the iPhone are trying to cram too much into a small space or if they are pushing information too “deep”. Please post your comments to our Facebook Page.

Here is how the original language parsed text popover would look on tablets.

A few issues to consider with this on popovers is that the definition is still a click away (it is a click away with the current popover). Not all of the parsing information will always fit and so it will be linked to with a more button.

Here is how the CWSB would work for a smartphone.

Christian Leadership Alliance Annual Conference

Next stop for Olive Tree…Dallas! Last week I had a great time manning Olive Tree’s booth at the Gospel Coalition in Chicago and if you get a chance… download some of the great sessions! Next week, the Christian Leadership Alliance Annual Conference kicks off on Tuesday (April 26) with main speaker, Dr. Chuck Swindoll. If you’re attending, be sure and stop by our booth and say, “Hi!” I’d love to answer questions or show you the latest features of BibleReader.

Below is a slightly fuzzy picture of our booth last week in Chicago.

Fascinating Facts about Jesus’ Death & Resurrection

Click to view resource

Jesus fulfilled more than 100 Old Testament prophecies during his life on earth. 

Of those, 24 prophecies concerned specifics about the way he would die.  

For example:
• He would be a Passover sacrifice and none of his bones would be broken
• He would be hung on a tree and his hands and feet would be pierced, indicating a death by crucifixion
• His executioners would cast lots for his clothing
• He would be betrayed by a friend
• He would refuse to answer those who accused him falsely.

Any one of these individually might not be conclusive, but put together the 100 prophecies, and they form a strong argument for Jesus as the promised Messiah.

Imagine having the entire list of 100 prophecies at your fingertips—just as close as your mobile device.
