3 Ways to Get a Closer Look at the New Testament

stewart-custer-collectionYou already know about the New International Greek Testament Commentary. You’ve pored over Baker’s Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament. Now you’re looking for something in the same vein: exegesis, application, and Greek word and phrase studies. But, with 40,000 books to choose from, where do you turn?

Good news: we have suggestions!

1. Stewart Custer Collection

Regularly $167.95use coupon code CUSTER10 to get it for $149.95 through July 22

Stewart Custer is an underappreciated treasure. This unique collection gives you numerous commentaries on the New Testament, as well as guides to interpretation and exegesis. It emphasizes pastoral insight and practical application: ideal if you want to home in on helping others day to day.

ellicotts-commentaries-on-st-pauls-epistles2. Ellicott’s Commentaries on St. Paul’s Epistles

Regularly $82.95use coupon code ELLICOTT45 to get it for $44.95 through July 22

These frequently overlooked commentaries lead you through Paul’s letters verse by verse: each zooms in on the Greek, illuminating the translators’ choices, grammatical context and relevance, and the thought implied by the Greek phrasing. They’re excellent for a student or pastor aiming to apply more Greek word and phrase studies—someone who wants to master Paul’s logical structure, perhaps.

3. Guides to New Testament Exegesis

Many commentaries provide verse-by-verse interpretation, exegesis, and application—and stop right there. Baker’s Guides to New Testament Exegesis Collection provides something more: it shows you the key interpretive approaches to each NT book, including the history of interpretation, the literary context, the style and authorship of each book, and insights from the Greek. If you aim to teach the Bible, you shouldn’t pass this one up.

* * *

All these collections have recently been updated: just visit the product pages (and make sure you’re signed in!) to see which volumes are new to you. With Dynamic Pricing, you’ll only pay for the books you don’t already own. And, as always, interest-free payment plans make budgeting even easier!

Get the Best Price on Homer’s Masterpieces

bristol-classics-homer-bundle

“The ‘Iliad’ and the ‘Odyssey’ stand at the head of the epic poetry of the world. . . . Artistically, in spite of their early date, they are the product of a mature art, expressing with supreme nobility and grace permanent and varied yet simple types of human nature, in a language unsurpassed for its combination of directness, simplicity, and beauty.”
—William A. Neilson

More than 2,500 years ago, Homer composed the Iliad and The Odyssey. So complete was his success that, for the next 20 centuries at least, most Western writers aspired not to surpass him, not to invent some creative new form, but simply to rewrite him with new settings and new characters. (Think of Virgil’s Aeneid; think of Joyce’s Ulysses.)

Why was Homer so influential?

Homer’s fame isn’t the result of any one attribute—it’s the result of at least three:

  • His themes are nearly universal: honor, dignity, battles, long journeys home. They helped cement Greek culture (which became the intellectual context for early Christianity), and they’re still powerful today.
  • His prose is a delight, graceful and memorable. The Homeric adjectives are especially famous.
  • He’s just plain fun to read, full of adventure and memorable characters.

The great translator Alexander Pope writes,

“[Homer’s] work is a wild paradise, where, if we cannot see all the beauties as distinctly as in an ordered garden, it is only because the number of them is infinitely greater. It is like a copious nursery, which contains the seeds and first productions of every kind, out of which those who followed him have but selected some particular plants, each according to his fancy, to cultivate and beautify.”

Get the best price before July 9

Noet’s 15-volume Bristol Classics Homer Bundle gives you the Iliad, The Odyssey, and a number of insightful commentaries. It’s a terrific window into Homer’s world.

Logos 5: Locate Resources by Publication Date

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 while back, a Logos user asked me if it’s possible to locate resources published in certain years. The answer is yes!

You may not need this trick every day, but when you do, here are the simple steps:

  • Click the Library icon.
  • Click the View icon (A).
  • Select Details view (B).

1-Library

  • Right-click a column header (C).
  • Select Publication Date (D).

2-right-click

  • Drag Publication Date to the desired position in the layout (E). 
  • Select a column header, like Title, Author, or Type, to arrange the resources (F).

3-arrange

  • Type a query in the Find box, such as one of these listed below, to find your resources (G):
    • pubdate:=1900 locates resources published in 1900.
    • pubdate:<1900 locates resources published before 1900.
    • pubdate:>1900 locates resources published after 1900.
    • pubdate:<=1900 locates resources published in or before 1900.
    • pubdate:>=1900 locates resources published in or after 1900.
    • pubdate:>=1900 AND pubdate:<=1910 locates resources published between 1900 and 1910 (H).

4-query

  • Notice that the years in the Publication Date column correspond to the query! (I)

Use these same queries in Tools | Collections to create search collections: then you can locate what was said about a specific subject in a specific period.

Get 82% Off Ben Witherington’s Mobile Ed Course!

WitheringtonWe always aim to offer you the best, most important content at the best price. That’s why we’ve decided to keep Ben Witherington III’s Mobile Ed course on the Johannine literature on Community Pricing for a little while longer!

This is your chance to get the best price on a top-notch course from one of the world’s leading Johannine scholars. If you’ve already placed your bid, you’re in luck: now more people can bid, which means there’s a good chance your price will go even lower.

Study the wisdom of John

NT 221 walks you through a full third of the New Testament, covering several genres—you’ll encounter these familiar books with fresh eyes.

Dr. Witherington examines the Johannine literature not only as a group but also individually, with an emphasis on the social and historical context of each book. He packed three decades of research into this course, designed specifically for the Mobile Education format. You’ll get more from the Johannine literature, and you’ll deepen your understanding of God’s Word.

What makes Mobile Ed different

logos-mobile-education-nt221-the-wisdom-of-john-a-socio-rhetorical-commentary-on-johannine-literatureWorld-class instruction isn’t the only thing that sets Mobile Ed apart. Here are three key advantages to the format:

  1. Courses built for Logos. The centerpiece of the Mobile Ed courseware is the Logos digital library—the premier research tool for the twenty-first century. Reading lists link directly into a massive digital library; they complement the lectures, add depth, and provide richer perspectives. Self-assessments ensure that you’ve mastered the material and you’re staying on track. Mobile Ed is one of the only distance-education programs that integrates fully with an all-digital library.
  2. Education that meets you where you are. The Mobile Ed curriculum includes courses on theology, interpretation, church history, original-language study, counseling, ministry, and more. In addition to high-quality coursework, Mobile Ed brings the professors, the library, the visual demonstrations of software features, and the online classroom community directly to you, on your desktop, laptop, or mobile device.
  3. Practical insight for ministry. Mobile Ed doesn’t just teach you academic content; it teaches you to get more from Logos and study more efficiently. This combination of biblical learning and practical training helps you prepare better sermons, faster.

NT 221 is on Community Pricing for a little while longer, but it won’t be there forever.

Don’t miss out! Place your bid for 82% off.

What Makes Platinum So Valuable?

platinumOne of our most popular base packages is Platinum, which gives you all of Logos 5’s advanced tools, as well as a library of 1,370 resources that boasts a print value of more than $28,000. (Thanks to Logos’ bundling discounts, though, you won’t pay anywhere near that much!)

Why it’s special:

With any base package, you get a library that’s integrated with data, smart tools, and a clean, fast interface to access everything. All your books are interconnected, which means more cross-references between books, more valuable original-language data, and more relevant results in the reports you run—the Passage Guide, Exegetical Guide, Bible Word Study, and more.

Platinum shines because of the terrific resources it adds to your library. Here are just a few:

A Greek–English Lexicon of the New Testament (BDAG), 3rd ed.

“It goes without saying that all scholars and students of early Christianity will profit from BDAG and will want to own a copy of this fine new edition.”
Review of Biblical Literature, October 2002, by John T. Fitzgerald, University of Miami

“It is without doubt the best tool of its kind that exists in any language, and the present edition is decidedly superior to the earlier ones.”
Bryn Mawr Classical Review, June 2001, by Jerker Blomqvist, Department of Classics, Lund University

“In all, an excellent alternative format with distinct advantages that many will prefer to the print version.”
Religious Studies Review, April 2003, by Michael Holmes, Bethel College

Lenski’s Commentary on the New Testament

lenskis-commentary-on-the-new-testament“A great work of exegesis, every page the result of long meditation, based on rich scholarship, warm with holy reverence for the Word of God.”
Moody Monthly

“Lenski is one of the most helpful commentators on the New Testament you’ll find—especially for his knowledge of the original Greek text. No serious exegete should neglect his insights.”
The Discerning Reader

“A conservative, very extensive and generally helpful exposition based upon an exegesis of the Greek text. Armenian in doctrine, maintains a rigid approach to Greek grammar, and follows an amillennial interpretation of eschatology. Exceedingly helpful background material and abounds in good preaching values.”
—Cyril Barber, The Minister’s Library

Charles Simeon’s Horae Homileticae Commentary

“[Horae Homileticae] is the best place to go for researching Simeon’s theology. You can find his views on almost every key text in the Bible. . . . What Simeon experienced in the word was remarkable. It is so utterly different from the counsel that we receive today that it is worth looking at carefully.”
—John Piper, Desiring God

“One can easily find suggestive and practical helps in the preparation of sermons, devotional talks, young people’s messages, prayer meeting talks, Sunday School lessons and personal Bible study. The study of these outlines will contribute greatly to expository preaching.”
Bibliotheca Sacra, B.B. Siegel

“If Wilberforce is the most famous evangelical layman in the Church of England, then Simeon is the most famous evangelical clergyman.”
Who’s Who in Christian History
