Philo and the New Testament

It came as a nice surprise to me that Kåre Fuglseth, co-blogger of Philo of Alexandria blog had undertaken the job to compare all the Greek words in Philo and the NT in one of his books. I was intrigued about the approach/method he had taken, since he explicitly mentioned "personal computers", so I left him a comment. Yesterday he kindly sent me a short note in which he says: "I have used HyperCard for Macintosh. At the time it was the only program that could sort 430,000 cards (the Philonic corpus) in a Greek alphabetic order (or any order, autodefined)." So here's a good example of how computer tools can enhance our research.
