I am looking for something similar to the OpenText.org project that has developed annotated Greek texts.
There is the University of Maryland Parallel Corpus Project that is annotated in conformance with the Corpus Encoding Standard and that also includes English. Unfortunately though, I haven't found any syntactically annotated version of the English text yet.

Hi,
you might want to take a look at the following link. It is a King James Version New Testament, parsed with the Charniak parser into Penn Treebank format:
Please note the caveats in the accompanying README. In particular, no cleanup or hand-correction has been made to the data.
Hope this helps.

This question mainly pertains to New Testament Scholarship. Do you think that when Paul refers to the concept of a "new creation" (2 Cor 5:17; Gal 6:15) and/or when the Bible refers to a "new covenant" or "new testament" (Jer 31:31; Mk 14:24; Lk 22:20; 1 Cor 11:25; 2 Cor 3:6; Heb 8:8, 13; 9:15; 12:24), that it involves a kind of replacement/supersession of the old covenant, or does it merely involve a renewal/reinterpretation of the old? Explain.

Answer
It seems that Paul is referring to the inward change that has outward manifestations in 2 Cor 5:17; Gal 6:15 more than anything else.
The other aspect of your question though, regarding the replacement/supersession of the old covenant is highly thought provoking. In mainstream Christianity today, many believe that the "new testament" replaced the "old testament," or more precisely, that the 'laws were done away with and are no longer relative to believers.' However, the clerics of the Carolingian era, when Christianity was being more well defined, would consider a subsequent testament (aka Will) to be perjury, as the original sworn oath could never be broken without perjuring oneself. Ha Mashiach (the Messiah) himself stated that he did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it. Both the Law and the Prophets (aka Old Testament) were often quoted as well. Therefore, the "new testament" should only have been a renewal of the old. But that seems to be far from the case as we see it in today's world.

I am undertaking a translation of the Shawnee New Testament and am using a 1929 orthography instituted by Thomas Wildcat Alford in translating the four gospels. Research shows that other orthographies have been used in the past but have not been universally accepted by the Shawnee. The language is currently spoken by an estimated 200 people. Those of Shawnee heritage number more than 14,000 and many would appreciate this translation in that it could help to revitalize this endangered language. I am interested in any former research or strategies to be followed to make their dream come true. Can you help?

Nate,
Thank you for your good suggestion. In fact, recently I have a working relationship with SIL and and a team to translate the Native American Shawnee. Through networking with them and native speakers I have found resolution for an acceptable orthography. Thanks again for your response.

Looking for any studies that have applied content analysis on the New Testament. I am looking to analyze the New Testament for implicit motive imagery of power and affiliation; this analysis follows the research methodology of Winter, D and McClelland, D.
