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 friend recently asked me this question:

Can Logos tell me what days of the year on a modern calendar Jewish feasts are celebrated?

Yes! And I think you’ll be amazed at how simple and impressive the answer is:

  • Choose Tools | All interactive resources (A)

Find current dates for Jewish feasts

  • Notice the Library opens displaying all of the Interactives you own (B)
  • Click the title Israelite Feasts and Sacrifices to open it (C)

Find current dates for Jewish feasts

  • Click Feasts in the upper right of the panel (D)
  • Notice rings depicting the Jewish and modern calendars with the names of the Jewish feasts outside of them (E)
  • Rest the cursor on the name of a feast like Tabernacles (F)
  • Notice in a popup the date of the feast in the current year (G)

Find current dates for Jewish feasts

For something even more incredible, click Sacrifices in the upper right of the panel (H) and using the Logos provided filters, build a customized spreadsheet of Jewish sacrifices! (I)
