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

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.

Legend has it that in 1816, an American man named Thomas J. Beale, and 30 men he was traveling with, came upon an untapped gold and silver mine while hunting buffalo somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. It took more than a year and a half, but eventually they mined over three tons of gold and silver—estimated to be worth $63 million in today’s money!

But they were concerned. What would happen to their fortune if they were to perish in the wilderness? They wanted to be certain their families would receive their hard-earned wealth if tragedy should strike.

Find the Treasure and You May Win a Base Package!

Oak Island in Nova Scotia, Canada, is the home of the “Money Pit.” Some say it is an ingeniously booby-trapped treasure trove; others, a natural sink hole. It all depends on how skeptical you are.

When the “Money Pit” was first explored in 1795, 18-year-old diggers found a layer of flagstones and then layers of logs every 10 feet. Eight years later, the Onslow Company continued digging, only to discover log layers every 10 feet for 90 feet, plus layers of charcoal, putty, and coconut fiber (confusing, since coconuts are not native to Canada). At 40 feet, the excavators allegedly found a stone with markings. When translated it read: “40 feet below, 2 million pounds lie buried.” Then the excavation flooded, and they gave up.
