Reading Scripture through the Proper Lens

book-and-glassesIt‘s all too easy to read Scripture as if it was written yesterday. But when we read the Bible through a modern lens, we open ourselves up to major misinterpretation. If we want to understand the Bible, we need to see it through the eyes of someone from the culture in which it was written. Logos’ Cultural Concepts tool helps you study the Bible in light of the historical and cultural context of the people who wrote—and lived—the stories in Scripture. [Read more…]

Dig into the Nuance of Biblical-Word Meanings

explore the bible with the bible sense lexicon
One of the most important parts of finding treasure is knowing where to dig. What if you came across a map with 298 x’s? You would have no clue where to even start digging, and even if you did it would take hours before you were able to find what you were looking for. What if there was a tool that helped you filter that 298 down to half a dozen? That sounds a lot more doable right?

Think about the difficulty of the English language:

  • “When he said he went to lie down he told a lie.”
  • “The man didn’t cave when he was threatened to be thrown in a cave full of snakes.”
  • “I saw your saw, I believe it was under the see-saw.”

The same word can have very different meanings. Often, we face the same challenges when studying the Bible.

Digging into Ancient Culture with Logos

logos 6 cultural concepts
Digging is usually a part of any good treasure-hunting story. Some intrepid explorer hunts down a hidden “X,” then plows up the earth with a shovel. The problem is, some treasure is buried deep—really deep—and to dig it out with a shovel could take hours or even days. Wouldn’t it be better if you could use a big piece of equipment, like an excavator, to move the dirt more quickly? The Cultural Concepts tool in Logos 6 is like an excavator for ancient biblical cultures, so that you can understand Scripture in their original context.

Uncover Treasure in Scripture with the Factbook

unlock the treasure in scripture
In our fast-paced world, it’s important to set aside time with God. But even if you take the time to meditate and reflect on God’s Word, some passages are so embedded in the context of the ancient world that they’re challenging—and frustrating—to interpret. Many of us would love to really dig into the historical, literary, and cultural context of a passage—but have no idea where to begin.

Logos 6 can break down some of those barriers with just a few clicks. The Factbook is your one-stop guide for information on any biblical concept or area of study. It’s a massive, interactive, biblical encyclopedia with articles, media, and more culled from resources across your Logos library.
