Mobile Ed Roundup: Douglas Moo, Studies in the Gospels, and New Podcasts

LME-LogoWith 63 courses available for purchase or pre-order, it’s been an exciting year! As our course offerings expand, we love hearing your feedback. Here’s what others are saying:

“The advantage of Mobile Ed is in the flexibility of accessing the material whenever and wherever I want and in having the lectures, both video and transcript, in my own library.”

“I’m really learning a lot with this course. I’m also taking a [traditional] class… but the videos associated with Mobile Ed give me time to learn without interfering with my job and day to day activities. The lessons are short, sweet and to the point. I wish my school would go to a format like this.”

“Mobile Ed suits my lifestyle, working full time, it works around my schedule rather than the other way around.”

Free R.C. Sproul Book! Surprised by Suffering

free book imageGet R.C. Sproul’s Surprised by Suffering: The Role of Pain and Death in the Christian Life for free through August 29!

In Surprised by Suffering, Sproul fearlessly dives in and answers one of life’s toughest questions: why does God let us suffer?

Sproul argues against the mentality of blaming God for our suffering. He says that pain and sorrow in this life should be expected. Sproul argues that some may be called to a “vocation” of suffering, and all of us are called to undergo the ultimate suffering—death.

Sproul also explains how God promises difficult times for us in his Word, but that he also allows suffering for our good and ultimately his glory. Explore these ideas and more when you get this book, republished in a revised and expanded edition.

In this book, Sproul is both realistic and comforting, offering solid biblical counsel to those undergoing suffering and to those who minister to the suffering. His advice helps believers stand with faith in a God during times of trial.

Plus, get Sproul’s The Holiness of God for only $4.95

Celebrating 25 years of publication, The Holiness of God helps you better understand the biblical picture of God’s holiness—and why it is so foundational to God-centered, God-honoring theology and Christian living. It is a profound, moving investigation of God’s character, which defines all we are and do as Christians. Sproul admits that encountering God’s holy presence is a terrifying experience, yet it’s the only way to cure our propensity to trust in ourselves instead of God.

You Can Still Get 3 Bible Studies for Free

Through September 4, you can get three free Bible studies when you order the Not Your Average Bible Study Series. You’ll get nine volumes for only $24.95, plus three more volumes that are still in production.

The story behind this series

not-your-average-bible-study-series-updates“Why has no one taught me to ask questions like these until now?” This was one of my first thoughts when working on my bachelor’s degree in biblical studies. In May 2008, when we started Bible Study Magazine, we decided to help people ask the types of questions scholars ask. We dedicated our “Not Your Average Bible Study” section to helping you draw your own conclusions about the biblical text, while showing how the Bible’s story is your story. Now, these studies are available for Logos Bible Software as digital books.

We want everyone using this series—we believe in it. This series will take you through a biblical book, verse by verse, showing you what the Scripture means for you today. But we don’t tell you what to think—we let you draw your own conclusions.

A series designed with today’s Bible reader in mind

The Not Your Average Bible Study Series empowers you to:

  • Understand the Bible’s ancient context
  • Ask the same questions scholars ask
  • Apply the Bible to your life, each step along the way
  • Tell the biblical story as part of your own story

This series works great for individuals or groups—it’s designed for both settings. We’ll even have print editions available later, for people who want to use them in a group but have group members who aren’t yet using digital books.

Whether you’ve been studying the Bible your whole life or you’re just getting started, this series will empower you to go deeper into the Bible.

Why you want to get it now

On September 5 this series’ price will go up to $54.95. We originally planned to only make this offer available until August 15, but we decided to extend the offer. Over 2,000 people have already ordered the collection and are enjoying the first nine volumes. Now’s your chance to jump into deeper Bible study.

A New Way to Study the Old Testament: Engage Your Eyes and Ears

hebrew-audio-pronunciationsAfter years of waiting, your dream of hearing Hebrew pronunciations during your original-language studies has finally come to fruition. Now you can hear the language, study the text, and uncover a new layer of linguistic study with Hebrew Audio Pronunciations.

This resource’s production was painstaking, but we’ve created a product we know you’ll love—a product that gives seasoned language scholars and beginning Hebrew students alike the ability to see and hear Hebrew in its original form, giving anyone a distinct advantage in Old Testament language studies.

DAL, a Logos user, states:

“Like others, all I can say is ‘Wow, wow, wow!!!’”

Learn from Dr. Randall Buth

Dr. Randall Buth is a leading expert in Hebrew and Aramaic and is the head of the Biblical Language Center in Israel. He has dedicated his life to studying God’s Word and his pursuit to understand Scripture’s original context led him to the Holy Land for biblical-language training.

Since then, Dr. Buth has worked with the Wycliffe Bible Translators, as well as the United Bible Societies as a Bible translator and consultant, but Dr. Buth’s quest doesn’t end there. More recently, he’s become a pioneer in developing curriculum and methodologies for teaching biblical languages—and we were blessed to work with him on this project. It was his knowledge and expertise that helped bring this project together.

More than just a book

The Hebrew Audio Pronunciations resource is more than an MP3 file, more than the Hebrew alphabet, and more than vocabulary. This resource also includes a thorough description of accents, symbols, and characters in the Hebrew language and provides the audio sounds in isolation for each one.

This resource is integrated into Logos 5, and you’ll find it within your interlinears and Hebrew Bibles. Simply right click, select the lemma in the context menu, and pronounce—you’ll hear the Hebrew pronunciation as spoken by Dr. Buth.

This powerful audio tool is featured in your Exegetical Guide under the word-by-word section, your Bible Word Study tool in the lemma section, and in the show-information panel next to the Hebrew lemma indicated by the small speaker icon.

Study Hebrew pronunciation as a whole by selecting Pronunciation from the tools menu, then click Hebrew Pronunciations (Buth) from the drop down menu. There the entire Hebrew alphabet, accents and symbols are further defined.

Intricately tagged throughout your Logos 5 library, Hebrew Audio Pronunciations will take your language studies even further.

Access Hebrew Audio Pronunciations on your mobile device

Hebrew Audio Pronunciations is featured on our mobile apps. Generate a word list from any tagged Hebrew Bibles or reverse interlinears, and the Hebrew Audio Pronunciations resource adds an audio-enabled section for your study. Export these word lists to the Flashcards for Greek and Hebrew app on your mobile device for an enhanced Hebrew study—word by word, wherever you are.

Logos 5: See Synonyms in Bible Word Study

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 presented me with this scenario:

As I was reading Luke 4:5 where Satan showed Jesus the kingdoms of the world, I was a little surprised to notice the Greek word for “world” was not “kosmos”, the word normally used for “world” in the New Testament. Is there a quick way to see all of the Greek words translated with the same English word?

This is an excellent question, and the answer is a resounding yes!

Using the above example, I’ll show you how to access a quick list of synonyms for world:

  • Open an English Bible with the reverse-interlinear option, such as the ESV (A)
  • Navigate to Luke 4:5 (B)
  • Right click the word world (C)
  • Select Selection world | Bible Word Study (D)

1-open-bible

  • Scroll in the newly generated report to the section called Greek Words (E)
  • Notice the English word world in the center of the translation ring (F) and the Greek words around the ring, which are the words translated world in the ESV New Testament (G)
  • Click a Greek word to see a list of verses in which that specific Greek word is translated world (H)

2-bws

  • Click the Greek lemma right above the list of verses (I) to generate a separate Bible Word Study report for that word (J)

3-another-bws
In essence, the Hebrew Words and Greek Words sections are displaying synonyms in the Old and New Testaments respectively for the word world. By studying all of these original words, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of the concept of world in the Bible.
