Trinity
Today’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.

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.

Using the Atlas to Understand Biblical Events

AtlasToday’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.

When we study words and events in Scripture, we need to study them within their original context. This doesn’t just mean reading verses before and after our passage, it also means interpreting the words in light of the world in which they were written. This world includes the historical, cultural, and yes, even geographical contexts.

How to Search the Original Languages with Logos

search original greekToday’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.

One of my favorite verses is Mark 1:35 which states in the NASB:

In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.

The Greek word translated praying is the lemma proseuchomai (προσεύχομαι), the most frequently used Greek word for pray in the New Testament.

Let’s say we’d like to discover other places in the Bible where this verb is used in the context of Jesus’ praying. That is very simple with a Clause Search along with a little help from the context menu.

For nearly 20 years I’ve had the privilege of equipping Logos users like yourself how to get the most out of the software. One of my favorite things to teach is my personal system for organizing the many resources in the library. As you’ve probably already discovered, it doesn’t take long to amass 5,000 books or more. Unless you have an efficient method for managing your books, some—even many—will go under used or, even worse, never used. [Read more…]

See Bible Search Results at a Glance

I remember years ago as a young Bible student reading that John, the beloved disciple, used the word love more than other New Testament writers. Back then, of course, it was difficult at best to verify that claim. I just relied on input from trusted authors. Now with Logos, however, substantiating most any biblical claim is just a few clicks a way. For example, let’s apply a feature known as Graph Bible Search Results to the above statement regarding John:
