0.5 Enhanced resources – Introduction

Enhanced Resources are now available in addition to ordinary resources. An enhanced resource is a translation in a major language which has been 'enhanced' by having keywords in the text linked to the Greek or Hebrew terms they translate.


Enhanced Resources can be downloaded in a similar way to resources. See the video “How to download Resources and Enhanced Resources”.
