TalkToTheWord is a thematic Bible concordance chat with the Parsed Interactive Bible. You can interact with the Word using brief sentences about anything in your heart. The responses are purely in-context Scriptures. Then the app will stay open waiting for you to meditate on that verse, or to discuss whatever you like – it is just between you and the Bible. You can use TalkToTheWord as a way to think through your problems, brainstorm new ideas, or use it as a concordance to find related Bible verses. It will chat just as well using urban slang as regular sentences and it can work in large youth groups, small Bible studies or during personal quiet times.TalkToTheWord will stay open after each PIB verse. So, once you are finished, please say, “Amen,” to receive a closing Scripture and end the conversation.The Parsed Interactive Bible is derived from the World English Bible WEB. Verses have been grouped together to preserve context and, whenever possible, to emphasise the Royal Law: (James 2:8) If you fulfill the royal law, according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well. No words from the World English Bible have been changed and no commentary, notes or small talk have been added so that your own response to each Scripture is inspired just by that verse alone, and by what’s on your heart. Verse numbers have been removed to encourage reading in context. Parsing has been based on meaningful sentence groups rather than the verse numbers that were added to Scripture in the 16th century. Conjunctions at the beginning of each parsed phrase and footnotes have been deleted to enhance the flow of interaction. However, TalkToTheWord is not designed to be a stand-alone study tool. You are encouraged to read the verses in their original context in the World English Bible or other translations for a better appreciation of the full context.DISCLAIMER: TalkToTheWord’s response to a user’s input does not imply approval or agreement with that input-phrase. TalkToTheWord is powered by Dialogflow’s NLU (natural language understanding) and Google’s machine learning. It automatically analyses sentence fragments and matches a limited number of key words to a concordance – a group of interrelated PIB verses. It cannot correlate the whole meaning of the input-phrase with a specific PIB verse. Thus, if the meaning of the whole user-input-phrase is offensive, abusive or disrespectful, TalkToTheWord is incapable of interpreting the whole meaning and so cannot be regarded as having condoned or concurred with the preceding input-phrase. Moreover, any input-phrase following a PIB verse is purely the user’s opinion and does not change the meaning or intension of the Scripture in its original context.
