As one reads the biography of Jesus, one cannot fail to be struck with the effect that seems to have been exercised on His mind and nature by the wide prospect from a lofty elevation.

The Verse List window creates verse-based outlines. With it, you can create topical studies, lessons, or even sermon outlines. You can organize verses by including named section headings. Sections can be expanded or collapsed. When a section is collapsed, you see only the section heading, not the verses for that section. Verses do not have to be in Bible order. You can attach notes to any section heading or verse.
