The aim of this research is to develop and test a Web based software, code name "tele-synopsis", that allows us to manipulate lexical data of parallel and variant texts. The basic concept design of this software is founded upon the possibilities of natural language processing (NLP) for mediating educational technology and knowledge discovery, or thesaurus creation and conceptual mapping, dual problematic fields whose key concept is always cognition of "frame". Our text framing software has been conceived in the humanities where cultural elements as objects of knowledge are so context dependent that supervised data are constantly fluctuating and even remain hidden. We intend to apply this software to examine various problems derived from differences in interpretation, especially the most controversial theme in biblical research, "the synoptic problem".
