The Apostolic Bible Polyglot & 1709 Lambert Bos CD-ROM
Above: This is the Apostolic Bible Polyglot & 1709 Lambert Bos LXX CD-ROM.
THE CD-ROM CONTAINS TWO BIBLES: The Apostolic Bible Polyglot is one Bible and the 1709 Lambert Bos LXX is the other. The Apostolic Bible Polyglot contains four major parts...the interlinear Greek Old and New Testament text, the Lexical Concordance of The Apostolic Bible, the English-Greek Index of The Apostolic Bible, and the Analytical Lexicon of The Apostolic Bible...all of which are included in the printed edition except the Analytical Lexicon. The Analytical Lexicon is only available as a separate download or on this CD-ROM. These four major works are all coded to the AB-Strong numbering system. These AB-Strong numbers can be cross-referenced between the Old and New Testament text, the Lexical Concordance, the English-Greek Index and the Analytical Lexicon of The Apostolic Bible Polyglot.

THE 1709 LAMBERT BOS VETUS TESTAMENTUM: The Bos Greek Old Testament was a reprint of the earlier Sixtine edition of 1587 which was based on the Vatican Codex B. The editor, Lambert Bos, was Professor of Greek at the University of Franeker in Holland. The Bos Bible is a scanned edition in PDF image format, i.e. each page was scanned into an image that can be reduced or enlarged but not altered or searched. What distinguishes the Bos Bible is the extensive footnote apparatus that lists variants of the Greek Old Testament (LXX). Sources for many of these variants are the 1518 Aldine Bible, the 1517 Complutensian Polyglot, Codec Alexandrinus and many other ancient sources. Many footnotes in The Apostolic Bible refer to the Bos edition, saying, "See Bos for variants." It must be noted that the chapter and verse numbering of the Bos Vetus Testamentum differs in many places with that of The Apostolic Bible. The Apostolic Bible follows the chapter order of the 1517 Complutensian Polyglot which coincides with the current accepted chapter and verse numbering of the English Bible. The books of the Bos Bible are complimentary to the books of The Apostolic Bible...the Deutero-canonicals are not currently offered.
