Visualize the Bible in a Whole New Way

visualize-bible

For modern readers of the Bible, studying the ancient context of the text can be extremely difficult. There are so many unfamiliar details that get lost in translation. Cultural concepts that would have been woven into the fabric of these ancient societies are foreign to us. Massive structures like the temple in Jerusalem must be pieced together in our minds using only the descriptions found in the text.

sermon notes

Recently in the gym, I watched a trainer utilize a weight machine in an unorthodox fashion to focus on one small muscle. Then, I overheard him tell his client, “I like to use this machine in an unconventional way so it does what I need.”

That’s the sentiment in this week’s post. In Logos Bible Software, the Clippings document is officially designed to assist with the writing of papers in an academic setting. We can, however, use it in an unofficial, practical way to store data to be used in a message or lesson.
