Studying the Old Testament: 3 Terms to Keep in Mind

logos-mobile-education-john-walton-background-of-the-old-testament-bundleThe Old Testament makes up two-thirds of the Bible and lays the foundation on which the rest of Scripture stands. Yet most churches devote less than half their teaching to the OT.

Where do you start studying the Old Testament, and where do you start teaching it? With Dr. John Walton’s Mobile Ed Bundle, you’ll walk through the background and typology of the Old Testament, laying the framework for your future studies.

In his introduction, Walton explains three things to keep in mind while studying the Old Testament:

 

With Logos Mobile Ed, you learn in an innovative mobile learning environment designed to leverage the power of Logos Bible Software. It’s a biblical and theological education that only Logos could design and deliver.

5 Types of Dictionaries You Need

Bible dictionaries are enormously helpful (especially in Logos!), and having access to multiple types is useful for comparing definitions, studying context, and making sure you have the most accurate information. If you start adding up how much it would cost to pick up several print editions, though, you might decide that multiple types of dictionaries aren’t worth it. Luckily, with Logos—especially with Pre-Pub and Community Pricing—you can get Bible dictionaries for a fraction of the price, in a far more valuable format.

Here are five types of dictionaries on Community Pricing, some of them for up to 91% off:

a-dictionary-of-the-bible1. Biblical: A Dictionary of the Bible

The Dictionary of the Bible (5 vols.), edited by biblical scholar James Hastings, is a thorough index of all the key terms in Scripture. With over a hundred contributors, this five-volume, 4,500-page set gives you over 1,500 definitions. The articles focus on people, places, archaeology, geology, theology, and obscure biblical terms.

Here are two other Bible dictionaries on Community Pricing:

2. Greek, Hebrew, and Latin: Lewis and Short’s Latin Dictionary

Logos Just Got Voted a Glassdoor Top Employer—Here’s Why

Glassdoor best places to work.jpgAs employees, we have a behind-the-scenes look at how Logos functions. We can give the most honest, accurate feedback about what it’s like to work here. This year, that feedback landed Logos among Glassdoor’s top 10 best medium-sized companies to work for!

Glassdoor lets employees leave voluntary, anonymous reviews of their employers. Here’s what some of us had to say:

“Most challenging and fulfilling place I’ve worked . . . The feedback is always constructive with a view to making things better or more efficient.”

“A company that is genuinely concerned about its employees and pushes them to grow.”

“I never want to work anywhere else . . . The best thing about Logos is the people. The caliber of talent is amazing . . . Our CEO is always asking how we can make Logos a better place to work and employee suggestions are taken to heart.”

“Challenging job with more opportunity than I could have possibly expected . . . Logos Bible Software is a great place to learn and grow as a software developer.”

You can get a totally candid look behind the scenes at Glassdoor’s page of Logos reviews.

Honor God. Love others.

As companies grow, rules and regulations often increase, and interaction with management often decreases. At Logos, I’ve experienced just the opposite. In fact, a couple years ago, our employee manual was trimmed to just four words: “Honor God. Love others.” Yes, we have an employee manual, but as you can see, it’s based more on how we treat each other, and less about day-to-day rules.

We’re free to make suggestions, free to try big things, and even free to fail: Recently, a fellow coworker made a mistake that cost us a lot of money. Our CEO, Bob Pritchett, responded by saying, “We made a mistake. We own it, we learn from it, and we welcome the chance to show our employees and our customers that we mean what we say about our values and ‘The Logos Way.’”

The Logos Way is what leads to us employees feeling trusted and appreciated. It’s why we give such positive feedback on sites like Glassdoor. Maybe it’s just our way of saying “thank you.” Because when employees are happy, it affects everything—our morale, our products, and our customers.

Don’t just take my word for it—check out Glassdoor’s full list of the best medium-sized companies to work for.
