Grow in Your Knowledge of Christ: Mobile Ed’s Summer Christology Conference

Deepen your knowledge of Christ this summer as you study who he is—his person, nature, and work—in the Mobile Ed Christology Conference.

Jesus Christ is central to the Christian faith. And who we believe he is will determine how we know and worship him. But to learn more about him means having the time and resources you need and can trust.

That’s why Mobile Ed’s Summer Conference from August 20–31 lets you learn and study Christology from well-respected scholars such as Dr. Douglas Moo, Dr. Gerry Breshears, Dr. Craig A Evans and more, through interactive video courses you can access anywhere, anytime. [Read more…]

How to Search for the Men-De Greek Discourse Feature

In a previous blog I showed how to use the reverse interlinear to identify the μέν – δέ construction in the New Testament. Please review that blog to fully understand the significance of this discourse feature that Faithlife scholar-in-residence Dr. Steve Runge refers to as Point-Counterpoint. style=”border: 2px solid #eaeaea;”

In today’s blog I’ll show how to execute a simple search in an English Bible to locate most occurrences of this construction. [Read more…]

An Introduction to the Men-De Greek Discourse Feature

I was recently studying 1 Peter 3:18 which in the ESV ends with:

being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit

Using the inline interlinear feature I observed at the beginning of the first clause was a Greek word (μέν or men) that wasn’t translated. Then at the beginning of the second clause was a Greek conjunction (δέ or de) which was translated but. [Read more…]

How to Identify Repeated Words in a Passage

During a passage study we’re taught to look for repeated words because repetition may indicate the presence of an important theme or topic. Since the Bible wasn’t originally written in English, we’re not really concerned with English words occurring more than once, but rather repetition in Hebrew and Greek. Several Logos tools assist with identifying repetition, but this blog focuses only one: Emphasize Active Lemmas.

Let’s take a look at this handy, but albeit under-used feature: [Read more…]

How to Study a Concept with the Senses Ring

Today’s blog question comes from a participant in our Camp Logos Inductive Webinar:

I thoroughly enjoyed the webinar! I especially liked the insights you offered regarding the Hebrew word translated “meditate” in Joshua 1:8. I’ve been doing my own study of the word, but I’m having trouble understanding the numbers under the Senses ring in the Bible Word Study Guide. Can you offer some help? [Read more…]

Women Delighting in the Word: Join Elyse Fitzpatrick for a Virtual Conference

How do we delight in reading God’s Word when we find ourselves bored by it? It’s an honest question that we’re oftentimes afraid to ask or even admit to ourselves.

But we all experience days when we find it difficult to enjoy reading our Bibles. We read a passage but the words seem to fall flat. Or we struggle to discover how seemingly obscure passages apply to our lives. On days we do have the desire to read, there’s often an endless list of things to be done, children to care for, or other distractions—or we’re simply to zapped of energy to read anything at all.

How to Search Both Manuscript and Lemma Forms of Words

As you well know, the Bible was not written in English but rather the Old Testament in Hebrew (with a little Aramaic) and the New Testament in Greek. Thus, when searching in the Bible, it’s better to search in the original languages of Hebrew and Greek rather than English. You perhaps are wondering: I don’t know Hebrew and Greek; I work from an English Bible. How can I search in the original languages?

The great Logos news is, with the power of our English interlinear Bibles, even though we read in English we can search in Hebrew and Greek! [Read more…]

How to Prioritize Individual Volumes from Commentary Sets


Recently I’ve been asked basically the same question from various Logos users. The gist of the question goes like this:

I own numerous multi-volume sets of commentaries. In the Library when I drag over a volume from the set to the Prefer these resources list, the entire series gets prioritized. That means that set of commentaries always shows up first in the Commentaries section of the Passage Guide regardless of the biblical passage I’m studying. I have favorite volumes from each set I want to prioritize. So if I’m studying John,  I want Pillar first. If I’m researching 2 Corinthians I want New American Commentary first and so on. Is this possible? If so, how do I set it up?

Gaining Significant Insight Into the Geography of the Gospels


With the vast number of resources available in the Logos base package libraries, it’s easy for a valuable resource to get overlooked if we’re not careful. A case in point is the Lexham Geographic Commentary on the Gospels available in the standard libraries at Silver and above.

How to Explore Everything Jesus Did While on Earth


If you read this Logos blog on a regular basis you know I’m a big fan of the Bible Browser because I refer to it often. Well, once again I’ll mention it because it answers a user’s question emailed to me:

How do I search in Logos 7 for everything that Jesus did while on earth besides using the Factbook?  For example:  records of His praying, sayings, rebukes, condemnations  etc.?
