Save Time & Money with the Lexham Bible Guides

There are only so many hours in the day, and every one counts. For pastors, this tension is particularly difficult. According to research conducted by Thom Rainer of Lifeway, pastors spend around 13 hours per week on sermon preparation. With all the other church and ministry responsibilities on their plate, that’s a sizable chunk of time devoted to research and writing. How much of your time and effort would be saved by making the research process easier and more accessible? Just think about all the other things vying for attention that could be prioritized with all the time that was previously wrapped up in research.

If “Blood of Bulls & Goats” Can’t Forgive Sins, Why All the OT Bloodshed?

Hebrews 10:4 asserts, “It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins,” but Leviticus seems to tell a different story. Even casually reading the book, we notice that Israelites who bring proper sacrifices “shall be forgiven” (e.g., Lev 4:20, 26, 31, 35; 5:10, 13, 16, 18). Have we reached an impasse?

How to List the Ten Commandments? It’s Up for Debate.

One of the most enduring elements of the Bible and the Judaeo-Christian worldview within Western culture is the Decalogue, the Ten Commandments. Even if one can’t recite them all, most people have seen the fiery finger of God etch the commandments into two stone tablets as Moses—for many of us, Charlton Heston—watches in awe.

Watch Archaeology & Jesus with Your Church for Free!

For years, skeptical scholars claimed that the gospel accounts of Jesus’ burial could not be trusted. Why? For one, claimed the skeptics, Roman authorities would never allow a victim of crucifixion to receive the honorific burial described by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Instead, crucifixion victims were literally thrown to the dogs, their bodies tossed into mass graves where wild animals scavenged.

How to Optimize Your Reading Experience in Logos

Even though we’re well into the digital and e-book age, I often still hear Logos users comment they prefer reading from print volumes when covering a large number of pages. I certainly can identity. There’s just something about the feel of the printed page.

I have discovered, however, I can quickly and effectively cover a lot of ground in a resource, right from the computer screen (I’m not referring to the mobile app here). Here are some tips I’ve found helpful when reading Logos resources:

Solving the Puzzle of Hebrews: An Interview with David de Silva

John Calvin loved the book of Hebrews. “There is indeed, no book in Holy Scripture which . . . so fully explains that Christ is the end of the Law,” said the great Reformer. But it’s that very connection to the Old Testament that makes the epistle so perplexing to the modern Christian. The only New Testament book to quote the Old Testament more is the Gospel of Matthew; its many references to Old Testament prophecies and commandments can be difficult enough to untangle. But Hebrews’ focus on the complex rituals of priesthood and tabernacle present an even greater challenge.

Combine this with the letter’s ambiguous authorship and warnings of apostasy, and we’re left with an intimidating interpretive puzzle. To learn how to put those pieces together, I spoke with New Testament scholar Dr. David de Silva, whose new Mobile Ed course, Exegetical Study: Letter to the Hebrews, is currently available on Community Pricing.
