Study the Original Languages without Knowing Greek or Hebrew

Study original languages

I’ve been a Logos Bible Software evangelist and cheerleader since 1997. One of the many reasons I’m so passionate about Logos is because it brings greater insights from the Hebrew and Greek languages to English students. Features like the Exegetical Guide, Bible Word Study, and Information all place original language facts right at our finger tips.

I recently received this question from a Logos user.

To do a passage study, we can use the Passage Guide. Is there something similar for a book study? What tools/feature should I use for effective book study?

I was happy to respond that Logos has tucked away inside the Factbook a feature called Bible Book Guides. This tool assembles background and survey types of information for each book of the Bible. This simple-to-use tool provides a great start for book study. Here’s all you have to do:

A Camp Logos alumnus recently emailed this question in reference to the Camp Logos 1 and 2 video resources:

As I go through and watch your videos from Camp Logos, is there a way for me to “star” or “tag” one that is particularly interesting to me so that I will know to go back and watch it again?

I responded by suggesting he use Favorites to organize videos he wanted to review. I’ll outline the steps below using Camp Logos videos as examples, but these steps apply equally to any chapters, articles, etc. from any Logos resources you want to organize and revisit.

I recently received this question from a Logos user: I am trying to find Paul’s co-laborers who are women. Is there a way to search just for the women in Paul’s letters? Excellent question! Happily the answer is “yes” with the Concordance tool found in Logos Now.

If you’re not familiar with Logos Now please check it out because, in my humble opinion, the Concordance feature by itself makes Logos Now a worthy investment. Among many other things, the Concordance tool can build master lists of people in Scripture. Then we can filter those lists according to numerous characteristics including gender! If you are a subscriber to Logos Now, try this out:

Ephesians is one of my favorite books in the Bible. While reading it recently I came again to the wonderful verse of 2:18 which reads in the NASB:

for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.

I noticed all three persons in the Trinity are mentioned: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As I meditated on the truth of the Trinity, I wanted to discover other verses in the New Testament in which all three persons are mentioned.

I remember years ago as a young believer hearing about the doctrine of our identification with Christ. Learning about the truth of being in Jesus radically changed my understanding of the Christian life. I discovered this doctrine is paramount in Paul’s writings. [Read more…]

Search for the Commands of Jesus with Logos

find every command of jesus with LogosToday’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.

We are told, in Matthew 28:20 that part of discipleship is obeying all of Jesus’ commandments. The logical question then is, What did Jesus command? And a follow up inquiry would be How can we locate the commands of Christ in Scripture?

Since the makers of Logos Bible Software have carefully tagged Scripture, we can combine a couple of those tags into one search allowing us to quickly find where Jesus issued a command. First, however, we need a bit of background about the search.
