The Biblical Polemic against Empires

The Biblical Polemic Against EmpiresHow many times have we heard that the Bible is a strange and ancient book with little relevance for the modern world? In The Biblical Polemic against Empires, Lanier Burns, research professor of theological studies at Dallas Seminary, provides ways to understand the Bible and its importance in our lives. He argues that we best understand the Bible when we comprehend the ways that biblical authors presented truths in the contexts of Egypt, Babylon, Hellenism, and Rome.

Burns connects our modern concerns with the ancient world by exploring biblical arguments in three areas—deity, kingship, and city:

  1. Attitudes toward deity: Ancient nations and empires, including Israel, were theocracies. Governments represented divine interests and powers. Not only was secularity in a modern sense unknown, but so was the notion of citizens selecting their leaders. Idolatry was a particularly heinous sin for the Israelites; other gods were mere projections of the desires of a sponsoring empire. The realms of gods and people were in a constant state of conflict and chaos. People served their gods in a frenzied way, trying to magically manipulate them in hopes of gaining prosperity.
  2. The tyranny of kingship: The Bible presents emperors as representative of sinful humanity, proud in their attempts to be gods and greedy in their appetites. These kings seem far removed from our lives until we realize that we have gods of our own choosing, idols drawn from various entertainments or escapes from daily pressures. [Read more...]

Logos 5: Making Bibliographies a Breeze

Not many people love creating bibliographies. If you’re wise, you’ve been documenting your sources as you go. But you still have to compile that information into a workable bibliography. Often that obligatory but important task becomes a time-consuming afterthought—but not with Logos 5.

Logos makes bibliography creation a snap. It remembers what you’ve been reading, citing and organizing your sources in your chosen citation style automatically. You can add your own custom notes and annotations, and even share your bibliography with friends and colleagues on Faithlife, export to a word processor, or print straight from Logos 5.

 

The bibliography feature is another way Logos 5 is making Bible study more intuitive. Check out Logos 5′s other intelligent features, and see which base package is perfect for you.

3 Reasons You Should Get to Know Mary

Mary Devoted to God's PlanIf we’re truly honest, few of us would want to fill Mary’s shoes in real life. Being an unwed mother is no easy task in our society; in Mary’s culture, it could merit the death penalty. Yet when Gabriel burst into Mary’s home and announced the risky role God had chosen her for, she not only accepted—she sang, proclaiming herself blessed among women.

Perhaps this is why, when we think of Mary, we struggle to see her as anything other than the mother of Jesus. As we watch her unflinchingly scrap her own hopes and aspirations in service to God, we subconsciously elevate her as someone whose selflessness and grace are so far beyond our own experience that she can’t serve as a realistic role model.

But the Gospels tell a different story. They portray a young woman who sacrificed everything to become God’s servant, yet struggled in ways that feel strikingly familiar. Here are three reasons Mary is someone you should get to know.

1. She made mistakes

Any parent who has accidentally driven off without their child can take comfort, knowing they’re in good company. Imagine what Mary must have felt when she realized that she and Joseph had left Jesus—God’s Son—behind in Jerusalem after the Passover celebrations. It took her three days of frantic searching to locate him. [Read more...]

Free Book of the Month: Horae Homileticae, Galatians to Ephesians

Horae HomileticaeCharles Simeon’s Horae Homileticae, Volume 17: Galatians to Ephesians is free during the month of May! Get yours now.

Charles Simeon (1759–1836) was a well-known evangelical clergyman. His most notable work, Horae Homileticae, is a collection of sermons published in 1832 to benefit the next generation of young pastors.

“[Horae Homileticae] is the best place to go for researching Simeon’s theology. You can find his views on almost every key text in the Bible. . . . What Simeon experienced in the word was remarkable. And it is so utterly different from the counsel that we receive today that it is worth looking at carefully.” —John Piper

When you download volume 17 of Horae Homileticae, you’ll get 12 chapters of scholarly, spiritually rich insight into Galatians and Ephesians. Simeon breaks down the Scriptures chapter by chapter, which allows his exposition to focus on the books’ important themes: the fruits of the Spirit, freedom through Christ, and more.

“Be Bible Christians, not systems Christians.” —Charles Simeon (click to tweet)

Download Simeon’s Horae Homileticae, Galations to Ephesians today! Then enter to win the entire Horae Homileticae commentary.

Logos 5: National Camp Logos June 26-28

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

Our National Camp Logos, June 26–28, is rapidly approaching. Each year in June, Logos users from around the globe assemble in Bellingham, WA (home of Logos Bible Software) for extended training, tours of Logos’ headquarters, interaction with Logos leadership, and fellowship around the Word.

This year is even more special because we’re presenting the Camp Combo: Camps 1 and 2, back to back, which you can read more about here.

What’s more, Dr. Warren Gage from Knox Theological Seminary is teaching DM831, “Gospel Hermeneutics,” right before Camp Logos, which means that if you enroll in the Knox/Logos DMin program, you can earn credit both for this course and for the Camp Combo. Registration is separate from Camp Logos. [Read more...]
