D.A. Carson & N.T. Wright: Save 45% on Hall of Fame Bundles!

Logos March Madness is in full swing, and already some matchups are shaping up to be real squeakers. As of this writing, Faithlife’s own Dr. Michael Heiser has a narrow lead over John Wesley, and Walter Brueggemann is neck-in-neck with John Wesley; just two percentage points stand between these theological titans and advancing to the next round.

Meanwhile, Geerhardus Vos has a healthy nine-point lead against Karl Barth. Still, with two days left for Round-1 voting, it could be anybody’s game.

How to Do a Bible Study on Abortion

bible-study-on-abortion

The Bible speaks in some way to anything you can think of, but it doesn’t speak explicitly to everything you can think of.

In other words, the Bible never uses the term “work ethic,” but it does tell us to do all to the glory of God (1 Cor 10:31). It doesn’t speak about insider trading or the use of DDT, but it does give general commands about cheating (Prov 10:9) and ruling wisely over creation (Gen 1:26–28).

God’s Word has something to say—in at least a general way—about every important issue there is, even if these issues are not mentioned by name.

The same goes for the controversial subject of abortion.

Learn How to Pronounce Difficult Biblical Names

embarrassed-man

I learned a long time ago as a young preacher to diligently practice in my study reading aloud the biblical text for my sermon. While this guideline is relevant for all passages, it’s especially true for texts containing biblical names. It’s quite embarrassing for this preacher from Tennessee to get in the pulpit and stumble over long and unfamiliar names!

Well in case you didn’t know, Logos 7 contains a couple of ways to hear biblical names pronounced: Read Aloud with a professional reader and the Factbook.

“A Commentary Written by a Churchman, for the Church”

Ephesians presents modern readers with a difficult interpretive challenge. The themes found within the letter are deeply theological and the Apostle Paul writes with a complex writing style that is hard to decipher.

Why a 1,600-Year-Old Translation Belongs in Your Bible Study

By the end of the fourth century, the common language of the Western world was Latin, but a complete and cohesive Latin translation of the Bible had yet to materialize. It wasn’t until A.D. 405 that a scholar named Jerome completed a Latin translation that would become a true standard for the Western world. By the thirteenth century, Jerome’s Bible was so ubiquitous, it became known as the versio vulgata: “the version commonly used.”

Today, we call it the Latin Vulgate.

But this historically important translation is often neglected by Protestants. Back in December 2015, I sat down with Faithlife’s Latin Editor Andrew Curtis to learn why (and how) Protestants should study the Latin Vulgate. At the time, Andrew was neck deep in the work of creating an unprecedented Latin-English interlinear Bible. Now that the project is complete, I asked him to remind us of the importance of the Vulgate and to provide some practical tips on how to use this important translation in Bible study.

What Does It Really Mean to Read the Bible in Context?

bible out of context

Cuneiform tablets changed my life. I’m not kidding. As I look back on my 15 years of graduate school in biblical studies, the turning point in how I view the Bible was my course in Ugaritic, a cuneiform language very similar to biblical Hebrew. This class compelled me to transform “read the Bible in context” from a naïve platitude to an issue of spiritual integrity.
