Logos 5: Use Timeline for Biblical Events

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 two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

A Logos user recently asked me this question:

Let’s say I’m studying a book in the Bible, and I want to know when it was written. Other than looking at a commentary or study Bible, is there a way to see its date of writing?

With Logos’ Timeline dataset, created just for questions like this, the answer is a resounding yes. (Note that this dataset doesn’t come with the Starter base package.)

Here’s a quick way to find a specific event:

  • Choose Tools | Timeline.
  • Type a word in the Filter box, such as Philippians (A).
  • Observe that only events containing that word appear on the Timeline. (The number in the Filter indicates the number of events currently being displayed.) (B)
  • Notice that your desired event may not currently be visible in the Timeline window (C).

1-filter-box

  • Choose the panel menu on the Timeline (D).
  • Select Find (in this panel) (E).

3-panel-menu

  • In the Find box (which opened under the Filter box), type the same word that’s in the Filter box (such as Philippians) (F).
  • Look carefully at the Timeline, which jumped to an event containing your word (G).
  • Use the Previous and Next arrows to move through all the events on the filtered Timeline (H).

3-find-box

  • Click an event on the Timeline to reveal more information, including hyperlinks back to resources (I).

4-click-an-event

As you use the Timeline, please keep in mind these distinctions between Filter and Find:

  • Filter limits events on the Timeline.
  • Find locates events on the Timeline.

In the above example, you’ll see that Logos displays various possible dates, which are taken from resources in the library. Again, you can click an event on the Timeline to display hyperlinks back to those resources.

If you’d like to see other events happening at the same time as the writing of Philippians:

  • Remove the text in the Filter box (J).
  • And notice that all events return to the Timeline (K).

Early Praise for Lexham Methods Series

Lexham Methods SeriesThe Lexham Methods Series has been on quite the roller-coaster ride:

  • First, we moved it from Pre-Pub onto Community Pricing so that you could have a say in its final price.
  • Then we cut the price by over 75% so that even more of you could benefit from this amazing resource.
  • Most recently, we had some of our contributors tell you how the Lexham Methods Series will help make your Bible study better.

We’ve even created a print proof (above) of the first volume in the series, Textual Criticism of the Bible. Check it out!

Why people love it

Now that the book is in print, we’ve been able to send out advance copies to external readers—seminarians, professors, and other experts in the field—for feedback. Here are a few of the things they had to say:

“First, I am a huge fan of how this volume is organized. It is easy to read through in a few sittings or to use as a reference guide. The table of contents is easily navigated and labeled so that it is simple to find the subject matter you might be looking for.

“This volume is perhaps one of the most thorough yet accessible introductions to textual criticism available. For the most part it finds a good balance between scholarly treatment of the issues and accessibility to the average reader. The sections on both Old and New Testament textual criticism have sub-sections on how to do textual criticism. These sections themselves are reason enough to get the volume.”
—Matt McMains, PhD student at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and blogger at The Beginning of the End

“I thought it had good information and was very readable. I’m going to recommend it to the MDiv students I know who have an interest in textual criticism.”
—Ruth Whiteford, PhD student at Concordia Seminary St. Louis

“Organizationally, it’s fantastic. It addresses all the key issues without dumbing them down and yet balances scholarship and accessibility quite well.

“In short, readers of this book will learn why textual criticism matters and will be introduced to the method well enough to understand how it works and why it matters—as well as having a good foundation for further research.”
—Jim West, pastor of Petros Baptist Church, professor of biblical studies at Quartz Hill School of Theology, and blogger at Zwinglius Redivivus

Right now, the four-volume Lexham Methods Series is just $60 on Community Pricing—that’s $15 per volume. Place your bid today!

Your True Gold Savings: Upgrading vs. Buying Individual Resources

Gold-PackageLogos 5 base packages offer massive discounts compared to purchasing individual resources. For example, if you purchased every individual resource in Logos 5 Gold, you’d pay more than $10,000.00. With Gold, though, you can add all 1,076 resources for just $1,549.95—you’re getting thousands of dollars in savings!

And when you factor in your limited-time upgrade and ownership discounts, you can save even more.

Then, with Logos 5’s powerful tools, you can make new connections across your library, contextualize Scripture, find answers in seconds, and better understand the Word.

In a nutshell: upgrading your base package is the smartest, most affordable route to more rewarding Bible study.

What if I just want to pick and choose my resources?

L5 Upgrade SaleFair enough. So, let’s say you start with the basics: a few commentaries, a theological dictionary, a contextual resource, and handbooks on the Old and New Testaments. With this in mind, you could get these five resources:

  1. Wesleyan Bible Study Commentary Series (18 vols.) | $249.95
  2. Kittel’s Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (10 vols.) | $199.95
  3. The Context of Scripture (3 vols.) | $299.95
  4. The United Bible Societies’ New Testament Handbook Series (20 vols.) | $399.95
  5. The United Bible Societies’ Old Testament Handbook Series (21 vols.) | $400.00

Together, just these five collections cost $1,549.80. For 15 cents more, you could get them all—plus over 1,000 more volumes—by upgrading to Gold instead. Just a handful of resources included in the base package more than cover the cost of the entire thing!

What are you waiting for?

There’s no question that base packages offer the biggest discount on the tools and resources you need. Plus, with limited-time upgrade savings and ownership discounts, you can get even bigger savings. Discover your custom upgrade discount, and upgrade to Logos 5 Gold today!

You’re Running Out of Time: Get the Best Price on Logos 5

Logos-Base-PackagesBy now, you know a lot about Logos 5. You know how a large library helps you learn. You know how Logos helps you study like an expert. You even know about Logos 5’s secret sauce.

You probably also know that, for a limited time, you can get a custom upgrade discount on Logos 5. There’s really just one more thing you need to know: the Logos 5 upgrade sale is ending very soon.

If you’re on the fence, it’s time to upgrade to Logos 5!

3 ways to save

For a limited time, you can get not one but three types of savings:

  1. Bundling discounts: With or without upgrade savings, base packages are a terrific value. They bundle hundreds or thousands of resources for pennies on the dollar—the print equivalent of Portfolio, for example, would cost a full $78,000. That makes a base package a smart investment.
  2. Dynamic Pricing: Logos.com’s Custom Upgrade Discount Calculator looks at your current library and automatically adjusts your price: you won’t pay twice for books you already own.
  3. Your custom upgrade discount: For a limited time, the upgrade sale gives you a third way to save. Like Dynamic Pricing, this discount is based on what you already own; unlike Dynamic Pricing, it takes your whole library (datasets, tools) into account, not just your books. Let’s say you’re upgrading from Starter to Gold: you’ll get not only the bundling discounts built into Gold, not only Dynamic Pricing for the books you already own, but an additional upgrade discount, calculated just for you.

The Custom Upgrade Discount Calculator has already done the math: see your savings right here.

Lock in your discount, and pay on your own terms

The upgrade sale is ending soon, but maybe you’re not sure you want to budget for an entire base package right now. The solution? An interest-free payment plan, which lets you claim your savings before they expire, set up the payment schedule that’s right for you, and start using your new Bible study power tools right now.

Gold, for example, costs less than $100/month on an 18-month plan—and that’s before both Dynamic Pricing and your upgrade savings!

* * *

You’re running out of time—your custom upgrade discount expires soon. You’ll be kicking yourself if you miss this opportunity, especially since payments plans make it so simple to handle budgeting on your own terms.

Don’t miss out: upgrade to Logos 5 before your savings expire.

Free Webinar: Harness the Power of Searches in Logos 5

Logos 5′s powerful search tools help you find the insights you need. Our next training webinar, on July 15 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific, will show you how—for free.

Save your spot: register right now!

LogosWebinar_620x175

Together, we’ll spend an hour exploring the three types of search most frequently used in Logos 5:

  • Basic search scours your whole library, bringing you the results most relevant to your study.
  • Bible search, paired with Louw-Nida numbers, makes the original languages accessible.
  • Clause Search—a revolutionary new power tool—reveals search results that you can’t find any other way.

Your Logos library is full of wisdom and insight—Bible dictionaries, commentaries, academic journals, sermon archives—but it’s Logos’ search tools that help you connect that knowledge to what you’re studying. You’ll learn which searches work best for which scenarios, so you can quickly and confidently locate the information you need.

This webinar will dive a little deeper than the previous few. If you’re new to Logos, you can catch up with the last two webinars right here:

These two events lay the foundation on which you’ll build a deeper understanding of Logos 5′s search tools. Come ready with any questions you have, and we’ll answer them on air!

Register for the webinar at Logos.com/Webinar to reserve your spot—we’ll send you a reminder email with all the details.
