Exegesis and Theology: Study Ephesians with Dr. Michael Allen

ministry

Today’s guest post is by Dr. Michael Allen, Kennedy Associate Professor of Systematic Theology and dean of faculty at Knox Theological Seminary. Dr. Allen is here to tell us about his new Doctor of Ministry class on Ephesians.

I couldn’t be more excited about the class beginning in January on the exegesis and theology of Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians. We’ll be focusing on two things:

  1. Sharpening our exegetical skills by looking at this particular letter
  2. Reflecting theologically upon its implications for faith and practice

Ephesians touches on so many important things in the Christian life—grace, election, ethnic reconciliation, sanctification and ethics, the church and her leadership, social organization, spiritual warfare, and the like.

What we’ll study

We’ll be studying this portion of God’s Word using the best of recent New Testament studies (Australian scholar Dr. Peter O’Brien’s highly respected commentary), as well as some of the greatest resources from the history of exegesis (gleaned from the Reformation Commentary on Scripture‘s volume on Ephesians, edited by Knox Seminary’s own Dr. Gerald Bray). We’ll be discussing not only academic commentary, but also pastoral reflection on how the text shapes congregational ministry (in the form of Eugene Peterson’s powerful Practice Resurrection).

Through the centuries, Ephesians has been a paradigmatic text for defining the life of God’s community, the church. And we want to look anew at its role in shaping our calling in a time of deep cultural transition, when—once again—we need to see the church be the church by God’s grace.

This class will be an opportunity to look carefully at a specific portion of Scripture, as well as to refine our ability to look at the Bible as a whole. It will hone your exegetical and synthetic skills so that you’ll be able to read and teach on Proverbs and Ruth, as well as Matthew and 1 Peter.

The importance of God’s Word in ministry

We really believe there’s no greater skill for those in ministry than the age-old calling to read the Word of God prayerfully and faithfully: considering its canonical context, attending to its place in the history of God’s work in the church, and eagerly listening for how it confronts us in light of contemporary challenges. And we believe that studying together—with men and women involved in this work from various churches and different cities, as well as with saints from ages past through their writings—will better equip us to listen to God’s Word and be witnesses to the gospel in our ministries and our lives.

Our hope and prayer is that this class will be an occasion when “you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:17–19).

I hope to see you soon. Meanwhile, “grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Get Huge Savings When You Upgrade Your Book Bundles

bundles

Bundled titles from Logos are one of the best ways to stretch your book-buying dollar. And this Christmas, when you grow your library with one of our special bundles, you can save even more!

New, improved bundles

A year ago, we unveiled special topical bundles to help you create a library catered to your specific interests. These bundles (now completely revised) came in multiple sizes and focused on areas like:

This year, we’ve made our bundles even more robust with tons of new content. The extra-large New Testament Studies Bundle, for instance, includes 36 new titles!

If you haven’t added one of these bundles to your library, now’s the time. The books in these bundles are already heavily discounted, and for a limited time, we’re taking an extra 50% off!

Already have a bundle? Upgrade for the best price!

If you already have a bundle from last year, here’s your chance to get an amazing deal on more books. Upgrade your bundle to this year’s version: with Dynamic Pricing, you’ll only pay for the brand-new content. Get more books for less—take this opportunity to upgrade your bundles!

If you already own the large Preaching Bundle, for example, why not purchase the newest version? Since you’re not going to be charged for books you already own, you’re only adding the seven new books at a greatly reduced bundled price—and then taking 50% off!

In fact, why not step into the extra-large Preaching Bundle, which adds scores of new books at 50% off? There’s no better opportunity to build your library.

Get the best value with the Master Bundle

The Master Bundle is where you’re going to get the best bang for your buck. In the extra-large version, you get all the books from all the the other collections. When we revised our bundles, we added nearly 500 new books to the Master Bundle—at 1,588 books, it’s the biggest bundle and, therefore, your best value!

You’ll add these books to your library at a significant value, subtract the price of the books you already own, and then take 50% off to boot. And when you pay with an interest-free payment plan, you can even stretch the payments out for up to 18 months.

Don’t miss this opportunity to grow your study library. Pick up one of these amazing bundles before the price goes back up!

The Logos Apps Just Got a Redesign!

Blog Image 620x175 Logos Talk

The whole suite of Logos mobile apps just got an awesome update. Here’s a rundown of everything you need to know about version 4.0 of the Logos Bible app.

Redesigned for iOS 7 and Android 4.4 (KitKat)

Embracing the flat-UI design wave, we’ve eliminated gradients, shadows, and reflections, relying instead on a series of simple icons and beautiful typography. Our 4.0 apps fit right in on the latest version of your favorite operating system—either iOS 7 or Android 4.4 KitKat.

All-new homepage

The homepage now hosts three daily-use items:

  • A reference box for quick navigation to a specific passage
  • A list of daily readings you can edit in-app
  • Logos’ Verse of the Day image, to inspire and challenge you

When updates become available for any of your resources, you’ll also receive notifications here.

Slideout menu

In 4.0, we wanted to make it easy to get from anywhere to anywhere without compromising the uncluttered, text-focused reading experience we’ve always favored. So we introduced a slideout menu to simplify in-app navigation and bring the most-used features to the forefront.

Recent references

The most useful change in 4.0 is in the verse picker. Now, when you tap to select a reference, you can choose a verse one of three ways: from a canonical list, in your book’s table of contents, or in a list of verses you’ve recently read. The last option is particularly useful—you can pin references to remain at the top of the list so they remain ever accessible. While this isn’t truly new, it’s been relocated for accessibility; you might discover it for the first time in 4.0.

Exclusive to Android

In addition, Android users will enjoy three extra features:

  • Notes sharing—other apps can now send content to the Logos app. When you find a great illustration in your RSS reader or email, create a Logos note with just a few taps!
  • Android Beam—devices with near field communications (NFC) capability will now be able to beam references, books, and notes when placed back to back with other NFC-capable devices.
  • Store—browse Logos.com and buy new books right from your Android phone or tablet. It’s never been easier to find and acquire the Bible study tools you need!

Like it? Tell the world!

Proverbs 22:1 says, “A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold.”

As we launch 4.0, we need your help building a great reputation in the app stores. If you love 4.0 as much as we think you will, take a minute and review it. You’ll be helping more people discover and fall in love with Logos-powered Bible study.

Logos’ app wasn’t the only one to get a redesign. Check out the latest Faithlife Study Bible and Vyrso apps, too.
