Early Literature and Scripture Search App – Update

As an update I would like to re-demo the command line version of the versepress app engine. The most notable difference from older pre-beta versions is the fact that one can supply logic to the search. Below is an example using the King James English Bible.

The versepress.com web app currently has only a King James English Bible. But other works are in development. The following is a preview of the searchable SBLGNT (Society of Biblical Literature’s Greek New Testament) :
