Study Paul’s Most Important Epistle Verse by Verse

In his introduction to Romans Verse by Verse, Grant Osborne makes a grandiose claim: “In AD 57 in the city of Corinth, the Apostle Paul wrote the greatest book ever penned in human history: his letter to the Roman church.” While we can’t prove that statement true or false unequivocally, we can say that Romans is Paul’s most dense and complex epistle. It’s had a profound effect on theology and the understanding of Scripture and the themes of the letter inform the core of what it means to be a Christian. [Read more…]

What Really Happened at the Tower of Babel?

Most children who’ve attended Sunday school classes can tell you what happened at the Tower of Babel. King Nimrod wanted to be famous, so he convinced the people of Babylon to build a great tower that would reach heaven.

God could see that the people were becoming prideful and decided that he should go down and mix up their language so they couldn’t understand each other. This teaches us that pride is bad and helps us understand where all the world’s languages came from.

Most adults don’t really have an understanding of this story that’s any more sophisticated. But Dr. Michael S. Heiser, author of The Unseen Realm: Recovering the Supernatural Worldview of the Bible, would like to remedy that. In this post, adapted from his popular book, Heiser explains what really happened at the tower of Babel and unpacks its implications. Then he goes on to show how the New Testament corrects what happened at the tower of Babel. [Read more…]

The Hidden Figure behind Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost for His Highest

How would you like to become a bestselling Christian writer, author of a devotional classic that not only still sells well but actually gets read around the world? The only catch is that the book has to come out after you die. That’s the story of Oswald Chambers and his book My Utmost for His Highest.

And yet without one key, hidden figure in the story, there would be no devotional classic. It was Chambers’ wife, Gertrude—whom he affectionately called “Biddy” (from B.D., short for “Beloved Disciple”).

How to Create a Lesson Template for Logos’ Sermon Editor


If you’re a preacher, teacher, or Bible study leader you probably have a fairly consistent approach to study and/or preparation. In other words, you may go through the same steps of lesson development each week. For example, I personally follow my methodology called the I-Beam of Message Building.

Toward that end, I’ve been asked numerous times by fellow Logos users if we can create a “lesson template” in the software allowing us each week to complete fields, such as title, introduction, point 1, point 2, conclusion, etc.

Currently, we can’t create templates (but who knows what the future holds) so I’ve discovered a work-a-round in Logos that may just meet a need you have. [Read more…]
