The latest Lighting the Lamp podcast, #160) Josiah's Death, is up and available for viewing: https://www.accordancebible.com/Josiahs-Death It is a study of this important incident with an emphasis on using atlases in Bible study. The battle in which Josiah dies is centered around the pass at Megiddo, through which Pharaoh Neco must pass if he is to join forces with Assyria to resist Babylon's expansion. The subsequent battle at Carchemish is one of the most important events in ancient Near Eastern history. Remember, this week is March Mapness, so it is a great time to add an atlas or two to your Accordance library!
The Carta New Testament Atlas series covers the latest research and discoveries, which I think it deserves a place in Accordance. As the author's remark of the 2nd vol. said, "New finds every year render what is previously written almost out of date before the ink is dry," it would be great if Accordance can put some priority on this useful resource while it is highly up-to-date. Thank you very much for your consideration! Vol 1. In The Master's Steps - The Gospels In The Land "...is about recent advances in history, geography, toponomy, and archaeology, the tools necessary to shed fresh light on the Gospels. The hope is that a better understanding of the physical setting and events that framed the life of Jesus can assist us to hear more clearly the message he proclaimed." http://store.carta-jerusalem.com/new-testament/686-in-the-master-s-step-the-gospels-in-the-land.html Vol.2 Jerusalem: City Of The Great King"...presents the latest advances in the history and archaeology ofJerusalem. The last fifty years in particular have seen significantly increased efforts to discover the city’s past.

Regarding these two Carta modules, the New Century Handbook and Atlas of the Bible and Sacred Bridge, could someone provide: 1. approximate file size(s) of each module on your computer, and 2. your comments on how one of these products has helped you in your studies and research. I am trying to determine which one I would get if I had to choose one. My C:\ partition is very limited on drive space and that may determine my answer too. thanks! David
