5 Free Apps To Simplify Your Life and Ministry

Learn to Use the Timeline in Logos 6

The Bible covers a staggering sweep of history. From the rise and fall of kingdoms to the intimate turmoil of families in desperate plights, Scripture tells it all. But that breadth also poses a challenge—how in the world do we keep track of all those people, events, and places?

When you branch into church history and theology, the problem only magnifies. It’s hard to remember who influenced whom, which theologian pioneered which doctrines, how schools of thought battled it out in the public arena, and which ideas came to define the worldview of their eras.

How Worldview Should Influence Biblical Interpretation

When we read something, that information is filtered through our own experiences and culture. This is no less true when we read the Bible. Our worldviews are important, but we rarely get a chance to see the Bible from another perspective. Because of language barrier and distance, we have limited access. Although it’s never appropriate to read something into the biblical text that isn’t there, unique cultural viewpoints can help draw out scriptural truth that might otherwise have been missed. The Transformative Word series is designed to help illuminate these diverse perspectives.

We’ve enlisted church leaders and scholars from around the globe to show us the transformative significance of each biblical book. Each contributor will write in their native language, and their book will be translated and published in multiple languages. The unique personal and cultural experiences of this diverse cast of contributors reveal biblical truth in a way you may never have seen before.

You Should Probably Stop Using Lexicons

Why you should stop using a lexionLexicons are commonly used for studying biblical languages. It may shock you, then, that I discourage beginning Hebrew and Greek students from using them. I’m not kidding.

I’d be happy if beginning students never used them.

I don’t diminish lexicons because they are so frequently abused, though that’s true. It also isn’t because I want people to spend hundreds of hours memorizing Hebrew and Greek vocabulary. The reason is that, for those newly initiated to Hebrew and Greek, lexicons just don’t give you much useful information.
