Time to Renew Your Bible Study Magazine Subscription

The sixth issue of Bible Study Magazine is just around the corner. We’re putting the finishing touches on the last couple of articles before we hand it over to our design team to lay out and then send off to the printer.

The September–October issue looks like it’s going to be one of the best yet. It features a cover story interview with pastor and theologian John Piper—and lots of other great content to help you dig deeper into the Word.

With the first year of Bible Study Magazine coming to a close, that means it is time to renew your subscription. If you’ve been subscribed since our inaugural issue (the November–December 2008 issue featuring Josh McDowell), the next issue is the last issue you’ll receive unless you renew soon.

All you need to do is visit the Subscriptions tab in your Logos.com account and make sure that the “Auto-Renew” box is checked. Whether your subscription ends with the next issue or not, it’s a good idea to make sure that you’re all set to auto-renew when the time comes.

The next time your subscription is up, we’ll take care of renewing for you. One less thing you need to remember to do.

Grammar Lookup on the Fly

The Exegetical Guide is perfectly suited for digging deep into the grammar and syntax of a passage of Scripture. It provides you with a wealth of information from your grammars, critical apparatuses, lexicons, and more.

When you’ve landed on a particular portion of Scripture that you’re going to study in depth in the original Greek or Hebrew—perhaps for a sermon or paper—the Exegetical Guide is the tool for the task. But sometimes you may just want to see what your grammars have to say about a verse here and there as you’re jumping from passage to passage following cross references and looking at parallel passages. Did you know that you can use the Exegetical Guide for this kind of study as well?

All you need to do is link your Bible to the Exegetical Guide by setting them to share the same link set (e.g., Link Set A), and the Exegetical Guide will follow you wherever you go—providing nearly instant access to every place your grammars discuss the passage you’re looking at. Just click the chain icon at the top of both windows, and set them to the same letter.

To keep the Exegetical Guide as speedy as possible, you can collapse the sections that you’re not as interested in. Just click the minus sign to collapse a section and the plus sign to expand it again.

This is perfect for the times you’re moving around and haven’t settled on just one passage to dig into to. Give it a try. It’s like having someone looking over your shoulder while you’re studying the Bible and finding every occurrence of the passage you’re in in all of your grammars—only instantly!

By the way, you can also do this with the Passage Guide to always have your favorite commentaries just a click away, or with the Reference Browser to have instant access to the places your passage occurs in your favorite collections of books like the Church Fathers, Systematic Theology texts, Old and New Testament Introductions, etc.

What’s in My Library: Analytical Lexicon

Today’s guest post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars. In this series, Morris answers the question, “What’s in my library?”

Analytical Lexicon

Definition: In addition to providing definitions for Hebrew or Greek words, an analytical lexicon examines the various forms of words used in the original texts. In other words, it not only provides definitions for the lemmas (root words), it also offers information about the inflected or manuscript forms of the Hebrew or Greek words used in the Bible. The analytical lexicon is arranged alphabetically according to the Hebrew or Greek words.

Example: Analytical Lexicon of the Greek NT

Application: Imagine coming to the word “logos” in your study of John 1:1. You notice the word is used as a subject of a sentence but you’re curious if the word is ever used in a different case as a direct object. An analytical lexicon will get you well on your way to discovering the answer.

For more tips like this, be sure to visit Morris Proctor’s mpSeminars website and his Tips & Tricks blog.

2 New Free Hebrew Vocabulary Lists

The post from two weeks ago about the 2 New Free Greek Vocabulary Lists led to some new Hebrew vocabulary lists surfacing. I guess the OT guys didn’t want to be outdone by the NT guys. :) We now have the lists from Zondervan’s Basics of Biblical Hebrew by Gary D. Pratico and Miles V. Van Pelt and Baker’s Introducing Biblical Hebrew by Allen P. Ross.

This brings our total number of vocabulary lists up to 26: 14 Greek, 9 Hebrew, 2 Aramaic, and 1 Akkadian. Visit our Vocabulary Lists page to download these new lists.

Once you’ve downloaded them, you can access your new lists in Logos by going to File > Open, selecting “Vocabulary List” from the Types column, and then selecting the list of your choice from the Documents column. For additional help using them, see the previous post.

Have a vocabulary list from a Hebrew or Greek grammar that you’d like to see us make available? Send an email to suggest@logos.com, and let us know.
