Maybe consider adding of these commentaries to Sword Searcher. I think they are copyright free

yea. Some of those are part of the Sword Searcher Program, but some of them are not. And they should be free to use. No copyright. I've been using some of the commentaries like Family and British Family Bible Notes. And Hall's explanation of hard texts along with, Charles Wesley, Thomas Scott, and William Burkitt. Otherwise I used Matthew Pooles, Barnes Notes, and sometimes Jamieson, Faussett, and Brown's commentary, but I think those last commentaries are part of the Sword Searcher.

This is collection of sermons that will shed scriptural light on Christ and His Second Coming. Here is a list of the sermons included:​

  • Vision of the Ages by B.W. Johnson - Complete commentary on Revelation. This is perhaps the best historical commentary on the Book of Revelation. It is written by B.W. Johnson who is the author of Johnson's People's New Testament.

122 Sermons on the Song of Solomon? 😲
I downloaded the Questions and Sunday School one. I almost download the Arthur Pink one on the four gospels.

THE PROPHET EZEKIEL - Arno C. Gaebelein - That One I might have. But it was too complicated for me.​

The last module that I downloaded was The Way of life dictionary. So I'm not sure if I remember how to do it, but can probably figure it out. Otherwise, what is the

"EXPOSITOR'S DICTIONARY OF TEXTS" by William Robertson Nicoll.? I might get that one, but not sure what it is. Thank You.​

You can get a better idea of what they are by looking them up on my website.
Click on the link below my. Name. When my site opens on the main page just
Click on any of the dark blue bars. The one for commentaries is at the top. Or
You can use the modules pull down menu on the menu bar at the top of any page.

Thanks! Going to check out your website after work. I downloaded the picture module. It's been awhile since I used a module and I can't remember much about them; as far as loading them and their name. Here is a picture of a file and I'm wondering if this is the module to load? Thank You.

You must unzip both the subdirectory and the commentary file to your Sword Searcher users subdirectory. There are pictures and information in the commentary that it must access that's in that subdirectory. So you must unzip both to your swordsearcher users subdirectory. That way swordsearcher will be able to find the necessary information that the commentary file is looking for.

Anytime you notice in a zip file that there is an "Assets" subdirectory with the same name (almost) as a commentary or book module, that means both must be placed (unzipped) to the Sword Searcher Users subdirectory. Much of the data, images, and/or information for the EMZQ-NT cmty module resides in its respective "EMZQT-Assets" subdirectory.

And, of course, Sword Searcher will then generate the tab "EMZQ-NT" upon startup. Have fun and enjoy!!

I couldn't find a users subdirectory, so I just extracted the files to the module folder? Did I do good? I'm trying to find the new images in Sword Searcher and looked under the images tab, but couldn't find them. So I'm wondering what to do next? thank you.

The images are in the subdirectory. There are over 1,000 .png images.
You view them in the EMZQ-NT module. You can drag one wth your mouse and drop it into your open word processor, where you can resize it for printing as a handout for sunday school etc... Each item in the pull down menu will display a set of approximately 65 to 200 questions followed by about 6+ graphic images. Each image will be something like fill-in-the-blank tests, coloring page, word search puzzle, cross word puzzle. If you have MS WORD make sure it is open, then drag any of the images and/or puzzles, And drop it into WORD or a similar Word Processor. Obviously, you can also copy any of the questions to the Windows clipboard and paste into your Word Processor. Its a dream come true for a Sunday School teacher or even a parent who is home schooling his/her kid(s)....

You can open the EMZQ-NT-Assets subdirectory in the Windows File Explorer. It will display all of the .PNG image files, or rather, a list of each file's image in the Window Explorer. That subdirectory is just a container for all the image files.

For further info, see the description for the module on my site.

C.r.a.i.g,

Note: You will also need to tell SwordSearcher what module set(s) you want
to assign the module to. That way, when you run SwordSearcher with a
particular module set loaded, the module will show up when the module set
it is attached to is loaded. Don't know what is going on in your system, but
make
sure you that you have attached the module to the module set you are
trying
to use in SwordSearcher.

Did you look for the module via the "Book" panel or the "Commentary" panel"?

After you have made sure that the module is assigned to the module set you are
loading in SwordSearcher, make sure you click on the "commentary" tab and the
module's tab should show itself, provided it is extracted to the same subdirectory
as all your other SS modules.....

Johnny NL was my beta tester on this one. I can assure you it works as intended.
I created this module as an effective tool to aid Sunday School teachers and Bible
school teachers.

Simply drag and drop any of the tests, quizzes or puzzles directly into WORD for
entertaining and instructional purposes and as an aid in Sunday School studies.

Here is another idea for a module below:

Spugeon's Daily Devotional Commentary

I have only added the month of January for now.
When it is complete I will POST a message to that effect.

I have attached to this message what I have done so far.
The TAB Name is "SpurgDevo"

I have "ALL" the works of Spurgeon. If interested, will be
Glad to create module(s) of his many works. If Spurgeon
Wrote it, I probably have it...
