It shows us glimpses of what life was like in the ancient world and provides us with important background information on the Bible. While we recognize its importance, we don’t know much about the actual process of doing archaeology in the field. What does being an archaeologist involve? What does a day on the job look like for someone working in the field? [Read more…]

Learn Biblical Hebrew at Your Own Pace with This New Course

learn hebrew with Mobile Ed

A Jewish proverb says, “Reading the Bible in translation is like kissing your bride through a veil.” You can still get the message, but there is something missing—you are more removed from the text. Learning Hebrew gets you closer to the text. It makes your ability to interpret the Old Testament, in Dr. Mark Futato’s words, more “precise and profound.”

The Relevance of the Prophets for Today

M.EdImageforLogosBlog-630x325

The books are long and complex. They include strange visions, speak of skeletons come to life, and frequently describe God’s wrath and judgment.

Studying the Major Prophets can be intimidating to say the least. The language, imagery, and poetry of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel can make it difficult to discern their message, let alone understand how their message relates to the lives of believers today.

The Hidden Influence That Shapes Your Interpretation of Scripture

biblical interpretation

When we read the Bible, we bring a whole host of ideas and assumptions to the text that have been filtered down to us through two-thousand years of biblical interpretation.

We probably aren’t thinking about how Luther might have interpreted this passage or how Origen would have read this verse.

Tackle the Unique Interpretive Challenges of the Gospels

lightstock_112731_medium_user_2807063

The Gospels are central to the Bible. Their description of the birth, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus provide the very foundation of Christianity, and this importance is underlined by the fact that there are four separate Gospel accounts. However, having multiple accounts presents challenges for interpretation. How do we deal with four distinct narratives of the life of Christ? Should we attempt to harmonize them, or seek to understand each Gospel on its own? How do we interpret several accounts of the same story—especially when they are presented with seemingly contradicting details? How should we understand Jesus’ miracles and teaching?
