After a major release like Logos 6, we don’t just go into hibernation mode around here. We’re constantly innovating, pushing at the edges of what’s possible when technology meets Bible study. In the past, you’d have to wait for the latest Logos release to take advantage of those cutting-edge innovations.
We don’t like to wait any more than you do. So with a subscription to Logos Now, you get first access to the latest Bible study tools, features, and content as we complete them.
Many of these features have the potential to totally change how you do Bible study.
Through October, if you start an annual subscription to Logos Now for $89.99, we’ll give you over $100 in free resources by authors like D.A. Carson, Andreas Köstenberger, Charles Spurgeon, and John Wesley.
That’s the equivalent of getting two months of Logos Now totally free compared to the monthly subscription, plus 12 volumes of free resources that are yours to keep forever.
So stop waiting. Start your annual subscription to Logos Now.
Meanwhile, here are five Logos Now features that will change the way you study the Bible.
Systematic Theologies Section
Have you ever tried to incorporate your systematic theologies into your Bible study? There are plenty of reasons to give it a shot—but good luck. If you’re sticking with the print versions, you’ll have to drag those mammoth tomes down off the shelf, then painstakingly search the Scripture index of each for relevant information. And if you want to compare the treatment by each author? You’ll have to switch back and forth.
And back and forth.
And back and forth.
Logos has always made that sort of thing easier (switching between interconnected digital books is much simpler), but with the Systematic Theologies section in the Passage Guide, you’ll incorporate the insights of systematic theologians in ways you never thought possible.
You’ll find references to the passage you’re studying organized according to classic theological categories like eschatology, Christology, and soteriology. And every author’s work is keyed by denominational affiliation. It’s simple to get a Reformed point of view on a particular passage, then follow it up with a Baptist or Roman Catholic perspective in just seconds.
Old Testament Propositional Outlines
Every verse in Scripture appears in a literary context with huge implications for that verse’s interepretation. Those verse numbers and chapter divisions we all rely on are late additions to the text that simply help us find our way around Scripture. Each verse is not a self-contained whole.
That’s why understanding the relationship of a verse to nearby words, phrases, passages, books—and indeed the entire canon—is so vitally important to proper interpretation.
The Old Testament Propositional Outlines are the perfect tool for understanding the flow and development of ideas in a biblical book. If you have Logos 6 Silver and above, you’re already familiar with the power of these propositional outlines for New Testament books. In this video, a Logos Pro will show you how you can find the same kind of insight in the Old Testament.
Corresponding Words Visual Filter
The new Corresponding Words Visual Filter instantly identifies everywhere repetition occurs within any of your resources. Find all the places “love,” “loves,” and “loved” appears within a commentary or the biblical text simply by hovering over the word you want to investigate. Or find all the places a specific lemma, root, or sense occurs within a biblical text. You can even see how the author of Jonah uses the phrase “go down” to highlight both Jonah’s physical and spiritual descent from the presence of the Lord. By identifying repetition, the Corresponding Words Visual Filter helps you draw out key themes and ideas in a passage.
Addressees in Reported Speech
The Addressees in Reported Speech dataset lets you quickly locate all the places where a person, place, or thing is spoken to in the biblical texts.
Just to be clear, we’re not talking about identifying every time a particular individual speaks in Scripture. You can already accomplish that important task with Logos 6’s Reported Speech dataset. This new dataset let’s you find every place a biblical figure is spoken to.
Find everywhere Satan speaks to Jesus, or look for all the places Jesus prays to the Father. You can even search for every passage where Jesus speaks to the city of Jerusalem and find where he laments over its coming destruction.
If you’re a theology nerd (and, let’s face it, if you’re reading this you probably are), few things get you more excited than comparing the work of multiple scholars discussing the same subject or passage. Logos has always been perfect for this kind of study.
Now you can add multiple translations of the Bible or even commentaries in the same panel with the Multiview Resources tool.
And that has some huge implications for your study.
The resources you bring together will share the same location, Visual Filters, and search results. Study original-language texts side by side with English translations. Search for a specific word and both texts will filter down to your search results. This tool treats multiple resources as one—and the applications to your study are endless.
If you’re not already enjoying these powerful features, now’s the perfect time to start. Through October, start your annual subscription to Logos Now and we’ll give you free books books worth more than $100. Get the latest from Logos, right now. Start your annual subscription.
