Study Hacks for Students: Top 6 New Tools

professor-logos-6-study-hacksLogos 6 is every seminary student’s new best friend. It equips you to do smarter, more impressive work, and it saves you the stress of tedious tasks with new study tools.

With Logos 6, mind-numbing tasks like transliteration, citing your sources, and performing textual analysis are all done for you.

Here are six of Logos 6’s top study tools:

1. Morphology Charts

If you’ve ever been stumped by Greek and Hebrew forms or, for some odd reason, found yourself forgetting the ending for the first-person singular imperfect active indicative of a verb (tsk, tsk), then Morphology Charts will be your new go-to tool.

In seconds, Morphology Charts automatically generate paradigms that show the distribution and frequency of any Greek and Hebrew lemma, displaying all of them in a simplified, easy-to-read table.

Just right click any term in your Bible, copy the lemma from the menu that appears, and insert that lemma into your Morphology Chart. You’ll see the the form and frequency of that lemma across the entire Bible and get links to where it occurs.

This tool is available in Logos 6 Silver and higher.


2. Text Converter

The next time your professor asks you to transliterate something, you can breathe easy. The new Text Converter transforms Greek and Hebrew text in seconds. Just copy and paste the text, and the Text Converter converts it into a variety of schemes for transliteration, including SBL General, SBL Academic, Scientific, Spanish, and more. Save hours of transliteration time with this new interactive tool.

This tool is available in Logos 6 Starter and higher.


3. Interactive Greek and Hebrew Alphabet Tutors

Tackle the Bible’s original languages in no time. With new interactive tutors, you can learn to read and write Greek and Hebrew in the pronunciation of your choice, including Koine, Erasmian, and Modern Greek.

Select any letter—from alpha to omega—and you’ll be shown how to write it in upper and lowercase, how to pronounce it, and common lemmas that start with that letter. Once you’ve practiced drawing the letter within your software, you’ll get a score on your accuracy, so you always know how to improve (or, always have something to brag about).

This tool is available in Logos 6 Silver and higher.


4. Propositional Flow Outline

Instead of doing hours of exegetical work—poring through Paul’s letters and trying to determine his thought flow—the new Propositional Flow Outline labels the purpose and intent of every line in the Greek New Testament for you. With a click, see how the text flows, how ideas fit together, and how each line relates to the next, then use this tool as an outline for your next research paper or presentation.

For example, search Ephesians 1:3 in your favorite Bible translation, select the Propositional Flow Outline visual filter, and see each line of text defined with its purpose: the first line is a wish, the second is a divine action, the third is a comparison, and the fourth communicates purpose. Hover over each label for an easy-to-understand definition.

With the Propositional Flow Outline, complex content and ideas have already been broken down and defined for you, so you can gain understanding by simply glancing through the text.

This tool is available in Logos 6 Silver and higher.


5. Textual Variants

Easily explore textual differences across ancient and modern manuscripts with the Textual Variants tool. Textual Variants brings together all the text-critical resources you need to make new discoveries: get textual commentaries, like Metzger’s Textual Commentary, as well as apparatuses, modern editions, ancient versions, transcriptions, and online manuscripts all in one place. Textual Variants presents all the resources you need in an easy-to-use interface.

Discover why certain readings were chosen, explore early translations of the Bible into other languages (like Arabic and Latin), and see handwritten copies of the biblical text.

This tool is available in Logos 6 Gold and higher.


6. Automatic citations

An oldie but goodie, automatic citations are every student’s dream come true. Copy and paste from any resource—including Wikipedia, when accessed through the software—and Logos cites all of your sources for you in the style of your choice. Choose from MLA, APA, Chicago Manual of Style, and more. Whichever style you choose, Logos 6 cites it for you!

This tool is available in Logos 6 Starter and higher.

Studying Scripture in Context: Why It Matters and How to Do It

studying-scripture-in-context-logos-6Regardless of where you are in your Bible study—from eager novice to sophisticated scholar—you’ve no doubt come across an obscure or confusing passage, word, image, or practice.

The Bible is filled with images and cultural references that meant a lot to the ancient Eastern mind, but are flat-out dumbfounding today, which—unfortunately for us—means a lot of Scripture’s messages and practices get lost in translation.

Let’s look at the big picture: the Bible was written over a period of about 2,000 years, by about 40 authors with vastly different personalities and cultural backgrounds, and in three different languages—Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic.

Every biblical author is writing from a different cultural perspective, so in order to truly understand what the Bible’s saying, you need to understand where the biblical author is coming from—you need to have a basic understanding of their culture and language, or else you won’t fully comprehend the underlying message.

The good news is that Logos 6 comes with the best contextual tools available, so even eager novices like myself (or all the sophisticated scholars whom I work with) can make amazing new discoveries.

Here are a few ways you can better understand the biblical world with Logos 6:

1. Explore ancient interpretations of Scripture

No other text has had a greater influence on Western thought than the Bible. So what better way to dig into the Bible’s culture than to explore its literary contemporaries? The new Ancient Literature tool connects Bible passages to ancient literature based on shared references, themes, and historical periods, and even goes so far as to make these connections based on allusions.

For example, say you’re studying Psalm 23 and you want a better understanding of what “God as shepherd” means. If you start with the Sense Section in your Factbook, you’ll see all the varying meanings of this title. And although you may imagine a shepherd as someone gentle, kind, and quiet, the Sense Section reveals a different perspective: in biblical times, “shepherd” meant citizenry, or a united entity or nation. It meant to lead, and it meant to rule and tend to your flock. The shepherd was a strong, formidable leader—not a meek guide.

You’ll also see several links to works by the Apostolic Fathers in the Ancient Literature section. If you open these works, you’ll see that for Clement of Alexandria, the flock’s relationship to the shepherd was all about humility, and not exalting yourself above others.

For Ignatius of Antioch, God as shepherd was about unity and truth: “Where the shepherd is, there follow like sheep. For many seemingly trustworthy wolves attempt, by means of wicked pleasure, to take captive the runners in God’s race; but in your unity they will find no opportunity.”

And for Hermas, God as shepherd represented a graceful man—someone who personally greeted him and sat down beside him clothed in white.

Do you see how much this fleshes out your understanding? You could just bypass a word like “shepherd,” not knowing the significance and intensity this figure represents—or, with Logos 6, you can get a fuller, richer perspective of its biblical meaning.

2. Understand the real meaning of biblical words

As we all know, words can have myriad meanings. You can explore a cave and you can cave in; you can go dancing at a club and hit a golf ball with a club; you could even eat a chip or get a chip in your windshield.

Alternate word meanings are not unique to modern languages, which is why Logos 6 includes the Sense Section—a new section in your Bible Word Study guide that shows every alternate meaning, or “sense,” of a Greek or Hebrew word, as well as where it occurs.

For example, the Greek and Hebrew word for “house,” can mean a physical house, a family, a people, a group, or a temple. With the Sense Section, you can see all these meanings and go straight to where they occur.

Let’s say you look up “light” in your Factbook—the Sense Section shows that the absence of light represents an “evil realm,” or “darkness.” So when God commands, “Let there be light,” he’s not just flipping the light switch—he’s casting hope in the darkness, he’s creating an oasis from sinfulness, and he’s doing away with ignorance of God; his presence rescues people from an evil realm.

Explore the biblical world with Logos 6

All these awesome tools amount to one awesome goal: better understanding the Word.

Build Better Sermons, Faster: 3 Ways Logos 6 Makes It Easier

logos-6-better-sermons-headerLogos 6 solves some of the most frustrating and time-consuming tasks facing today’s pastors. Things like late-night sermon prep, uncertainty in your findings, and a lack of resources may be ubiquitous in a pastor’s life, but they don’t have to be.

With Logos 6, we pinpointed the top obstacles pastors face and created new tools to specifically alleviate those obstacles, so you can spend less time buried in tedious tasks and more time discipling others.

Here are three ways Logos 6 equips pastors to uncover and share new insights in a fraction of the time:

1. Create beautiful presentations—faster

logos-6-better-sermons-visual-copyLogos 6 has only been out for a few weeks, but pastors are loving Visual Copy. This new tool helps you build presentations from within your software, so if you come across an image or quote that’s particularly compelling, you can instantly add it to your presentation. Simply right click the text or image and quickly convert it into a perfectly formatted slide. With a click, send this slide to PowerPoint, Proclaim, or your social networks.

Logos 6 also comes loaded with hundreds of preaching and Bible-background slides that cover every book in the Bible and include beautiful artwork on the most popular preaching topics. We’ve also hand selected the best online images, so instead of wasting time image searching on the Internet and getting results completely unrelated to what you’re looking for, you can search for relevant online images within the software. For example, if you were to search “tabernacle” online, one of the top results would be a nightclub in Atlanta (which I doubt is what you’re preaching on). With new media and search tools, you get the exact imagery you need, when you need it.

Engage your audience and save yourself the stress of last-minute presentations with Visual Copy, Media Search, and new Media Collections.

To enjoy all of Logos 6’s new Media Collections, get Logos 6 Silver or higher.

2. Get instant information on every Scripture-related topic

logos-6-better-sermons-everything-searchNo matter what you’re preaching on (or if you can’t decide what to preach on), Logos 6 has the answers you need.

You can start with a verse, topic, person, place—anything—and look it up with Everything Search. This new tool sweeps through your entire library and returns everything you need to start your sermon: Bible references, library resources, media, Atlas maps, dictionary links, and more. Everything Search brings together all of your advanced search tools, saving you time and taking the guesswork out of your research.

If you want more focused results, use Factbook. Search any biblical person, place, event, concept, or book in the Bible, and like a massive encyclopedia, Factbook brings together all the information you need. Search a person like John Calvin, and get a short biography, famous quotes, links to key works, and Timeline events. Search any book in the Bible and get beautiful Bible-verse art, content overviews, key events, outlines, authorship and historical data, themes, and more. With Factbook, you can spend less time trying to determine which resources to use, and more time preparing your message.

Having some serious sermon block? Just start entering a query, like “prayer,” “John,” or “Bethlehem,” and you’ll get relevant recommended search suggestions that could trigger new ideas.

Logos 6 simplifies your study process, so you always know where to start your next sermon and always have fresh material to challenge yourself and your congregation.

To find answers faster with Everything Search and Factbook, get Logos 6 Bronze or higher.

3. Better understand biblical nuances and cultural practices

logos-6-better-sermons-cultural-conceptsYour congregation is counting on your biblical knowledge, which means it’s up to you to understand biblical nuances and culture (no matter how obscure). Without this knowledge, you can’t effectively analyze biblical imagery and word choice and communicate its meaning to others. Something that may seem benign to the modern reader may have meant the world to the biblical author. That’s why Logos 6 comes loaded with new contextual tools.

With the new Cultural Concepts tool, you can reveal cultural concepts—like music, food, birth and death practices, and economic structures—expressed in the Bible. Search any verse in your Passage Guide or right click on a text selection in your Bible, and Cultural Concepts displays the cultural practices and themes represented in the text. From there, you can see other places where this concept occurs, other names it’s referred to as, and ancient texts that address the same concept.

Logos 6’s Ancient Literature tool also empowers you to explore the literature surrounding the Bible, so you can dig into comparative texts and see how later Christian and Jewish traditions interpreted Scripture. Search a verse in your Passage Guide and see all the ancient literature that relates to that verse. In seconds, find connections between Scripture and the Talmud, Mishna, and Judaic literature, as well as works by the Apostolic Fathers, Philo, and others. This tool isn’t just based on Bible references, though—in addition to linking to primary texts that quote Scripture, it also lists resources that allude to the Bible, that cite it, and that share the same historical period, themes, and lexicon.

With new tools like Cultural Concepts and Ancient Literature—along with Atlas, Timeline, and Interactive Media—you can explore the biblical world like never before and gain a concrete understanding of the Bible’s cultural perspectives.

To explore Cultural Concepts and Ancient Literature, get Logos 6 Silver or higher.

For example, search “Solomon,” and get infographics of his temple, dictionary links, all the names he’s referred to as and where they occur, lists of his relatives and roles, Timeline events, and topics for further study, as well as Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic lemmas.

That’s why Logos 6 comes packed with new tools and resources to help you study Scripture in context.

The new Cultural Concepts tool identifies over 1,000 cultural concepts throughout the Bible, like religious activities, food, music, birth and death practices, marriage rituals, and economic structures, so you can derive greater meaning from biblical events. In seconds, explore all the cultural concepts expressed in a passage, then connect those concepts to ancient texts.

With the Ancient Literature tool, you can get a clear view of the Bible’s background by exploring ancient texts side by side with Scripture. This tool links Scripture to ancient texts based on shared themes, references, allusions, and more.

With Atlas, you can connect Bible narratives to their geographical context. Browse dozens of new maps, created by a professional cartographer, that offer powerful functionality—including zoom and panning options.
