JesusAndScriptureApril’s free book is here, and it’s just waiting to help you understand what Jesus said about Scripture, how he used it in his teaching, and how it affected his ministry. Get Jesus and Scripture for free right now!

In this illuminating guide, Steve Moyise analyzes the quotations from, and allusions to, the Old Testament in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, laying out the scriptural palette Jesus drew from. From there, Moyise examines the views of several major scholars—Borg, Crossan, Dunn, France, Kimball, Vermes, and Wright—showing how different reconstructions of Jesus’ Scripture usage can alter your understanding of his historical significance.

Sit at the feet of the world’s greatest teacher

Jesus is the model for how we love, serve, pray, forgive, and live. Jesus and Scripture helps you see how Jesus can teach us to teach. No ministry has had a greater impact on the world than Jesus’. Period. If you’re in ministry (or you just want to make a difference in the world), sit at the feet of Jesus, and discover how Scripture created the framework of his teaching and laid the foundation for his ministry. By wrestling with contemporary scholarship on Jesus’ use of Scripture, Moyise helps you see how shifts in understanding can shape your perception of Jesus’ impact.

Build Your Spiritual Foundation: Pre-order the Ancient Christian Writers Bundle for 20% Off

ancient christian writersDuring its first four centuries, Christianity produced some of the world’s most profound historical, theological, and philosophical literature. These writings are the foundation for almost all modern Christian theology—many of the beliefs you hold today are built on what St. Augustine, Justin Martyr, Athanasius, Jerome, and others had to say about the Bible so many centuries ago. With the Ancient Christian Writers Bundle, you can draw from nearly 20,000 pages of foundational Christian wisdom. Pre-order the bundle today to get 20% off—that’s over $150 in savings!

The library is neatly divided into four collections:

We’ve partnered with Paulist Press to bring you these theological pioneers’ beautiful writings, some of which had never been translated into English before. The bundle gives you an enormous selection of heart-wrenching martyrdom narratives, intimate letters, remarkable biblical commentaries, and penetrating philosophical and theological treatises.

Centuries of wisdom integrated into your library

Opposition to Christianity is not new. It may wear new faces, but its roots, like yours, grow from seeds that are centuries old. The ancient Christian writers were forced to divide a sea of disbelief to reveal the one true path, buried beneath the waves. This collection lets you consult their wisdom and draw from their inspiring peace, grace, and love.

Modern theologians constantly refer to the works of these ancient writers. Now you can, too. Adding these books to your library enhances the books you already use: these volumes pump the lifeblood of Christian literature into relevant resources, connect references to referents, and offer a deep pool of wisdom for you to plunge into no matter what you’re wrestling with.

Of course, 65 volumes is a lot. All of them add to the value of the resources you already own, but if there are one or two collections you desperately want, you can purchase them individually. Just remember that the complete bundle gives you by far the best deal!

3 Ways to Learn from R.C. Sproul

r. c. sproulR.C. Sproul is a respected teacher, theologian, and pastor. He’s the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries, where he serves as executive editor of Tabletalk magazine. He serves as senior minister of preaching and teaching at Saint Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, Florida. His teaching can be heard daily on the Renewing Your Mind radio broadcast, which plays in over 40 countries.

Sproul has written over 70 books and articles, including the classic The Holiness of God, exegetical works in the R.C. Sproul Exposition Collection, and several theological articles in Tabletalk magazine.

If you’ve yet to benefit from Sproul’s wealth of knowledge and wisdom, here are three ways to do so:

1. Attend Ligonier Seattle

To help believers understand what it means to be a witness in this world, Ligonier Ministries is hosting its West Coast Conference on “Overcoming the World: Being a Christian in a Post-Christian Culture.” From June 6 to 7, 2014, Drs. Steven Lawson, Stephen Meyer, Albert Mohler, and R.C. Sproul Jr. will be joining R.C. Sproul in Seattle to address the challenges modern Christians face. Early-bird registration for Ligonier Seattle ends April 11, and then the price jumps from $59 to $79. Register today!

Through June 1, you can also enter to win two tickets to Ligonier Seattle, a MacBook Air, Logos 5 Gold, and eight R.C. Sproul books from Vyrso—enter to win!

2. Get Sproul’s Crucial Questions Series for free

Get your free books right now!

3. Pre-order Sproul’s Everyone’s a Theologian for 27% off

Many people react negatively to the word theology—they think it involves dry, fruitless arguments about doctrinal minutiae. They prefer to focus on the basic truths of Scripture; they may even declare, “No creed but Christ.” But, as Sproul argues, everyone is a theologian. Anytime we strive to understand the Bible, we’re engaging in theology. Therefore, it’s important that we put the Bible’s teachings together in a systematic fashion, using proper, time-tested methods of interpretation to arrive at a theology founded on truth. That’s precisely what Sproul teaches you to do in Everyone’s a Theologian.

Pre-order Everyone’s a Theologian today for just $10.95!

Understanding the Characters of Noah’s Ark

Logos 5’s Bible Facts tool is a powerful, comprehensive database of all of the Bible’s people, places, and things. It’s a great way to learn more about almost anything, but it’s especially useful when you’re studying biblical people—genealogies that can span entire chapters become highly detailed family trees, giving you visual representations of biblical relationships.

Let’s take a look at Noah’s family tree:

Click to enlarge

Click image to enlarge


You can even choose which family lines you want to follow—you can see Noah’s place in Adam’s family tree, or even Jesus’.

Discover what the Bible says about Noah

When you highlight “Noah,” Bible Facts pulls up relevant passages in your preferred translation, including Noah’s birth (Genesis 5:28–29), God’s promise to never again curse the ground because of man (Genesis 8:20–9:17), and Noah’s lapse into drunkenness after the flood (Genesis 9:18–27). Then, when you right-click a passage, you can tell Logos to search your entire library for every book that references Noah’s birth; Logos will open each to the appropriate passage, too.

Get to know his family

What if you want to learn more about Noah’s son Ham? Or his grandfather Methuselah? Every person in the Bible Facts family tree is a link. If you want to learn more about someone, just click—Bible Facts takes you right to his or her tree. For example, you could see that Methuselah was nearly 200 years old when he had Noah’s father, Lamech, or that he lived to be almost 1,000—the longest lifespan of any person in the Bible (Genesis 5:25–5:27).

Consult the experts

Bible Facts also pulls up content from Bible dictionaries. Mouse over Methuselah (or other renderings of his name, like Matusalén and Mathusala) under the dictionary of your choice, and Bible Facts gives you the rundown of everything that dictionary has to say.

And, because you’re studying in Logos, you can always go deeper: after that, maybe you’ll want to study how God’s caution to Noah’s family, “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed” (Genesis 9:5–6), foreshadows Jesus’ famous warning, “all who take the sword will perish by the sword” (Matthew 26:52). Right away, Bible Facts shows you everything you need to know about Noah, his family, and what the Bible says about him. It’s also a diving board that lets you plunge as deep as you want.

Bible Facts is just one of many powerful research tools you’ll get with a Logos base package. Choose your package today, and start using the same tools Bible experts use all over the world. With an entire library at your fingertips, you can get the answers you need. With Logos doing the busywork for you, you can learn more, faster. Pick out your base package today.

spurgeon-commentary-collection-new-testament-lettersRight now, you can pre-order the nine-volume Spurgeon Commentary Collection: New Testament Letters for 41% off!

Charles Spurgeon, the prolific “Prince of Preachers,” delivered thousands of sermons. His years of public ministry spanned the latter half of the nineteenth century, and he often preached several times a week. He published sermons, tracts, a long-running magazine, and several books, but he only completed two commentaries in his lifetime: a volume on the Gospel of Matthew and a six-volume series on the Psalms.

Pick up where Spurgeon left off

Lexham Press has picked up where Spurgeon left off: we’ve compiled the best of Spurgeon’s writings on nine New Testament letters, all in an easy-to-read commentary format. We’ve also highlighted illustrations and tagged them with preaching themes, so they’re easy to use in your sermons, and positioned application content at the end of each section. While we’ve done the work of arranging Spurgeon’s writing verse by verse, the words themselves are Spurgeon’s.

The Spurgeon Commentary Collection: New Testament Letters makes Spurgeon’s content accessible—there’s no longer any need to comb through Spurgeon’s many volumes of content looking for that specific nugget of wisdom. You’re getting Spurgeon’s writings curated in a format that’s tied to the biblical text.
