Today, I want to show you how I’ve been able to utilize the resources contained in the Lexham Press Pastor’s Bundle to enhance my study.

Let’s say you’re working through the Not Your Average Bible Study volume on Ephesians with a Bible study group at your church. You’re halfway through the second section of the study and you’ve started lesson 6, “Gifts Designed for Edifying.”

SS_01_NYAB_Ephesians

After the lesson, one of your fellow group members asks a question about spiritual gifts that you’re just unable to answer on the spot. You want to help them come to a deeper understanding of spiritual gifts, but without some research, you’re just not comfortable answering their question at this point.

Your starting point for research

The first place you go to begin your research is Lexham Bible Guide: Ephesians. Here you’ll find all of the major viewpoints on a passage, curated for you with annotations and links to the original sources. You also know that Paul discusses spiritual gifts in both Romans and 1 Corinthians, so you open those Bible guides, too.

SS 02_LBG_Ephesians

Now that you have an overview of all the interpretations of these critical passages, you’ll be better equipped to answer your friend’s question.

Find precisely the words you need

You want to thoroughly answer your friend’s question, and you remember that the Lexham Press Pastor’s Bundle comes with 2,500 quotations and prayers. Using the power of Logos Bible Software, you’re able to search through all eight volumes of quotes and prayers for Scripture references to Ephesians 4:7–16. Sure enough, you’ve found the perfect quote to hammer your point home.
