2 Simple Ways Logos Streamlines Your Study

FBOTM
Logos can shave hours off your study time by simplifying the mundane, time-consuming tasks that don’t have anything to do with actually studying the Bible. Tasks like flipping between multiple resources and tracking down obscure journal articles can quickly eat up the precious time you could be using to perform in-depth exegesis or develop key points of application.

Let me show you how Logos can save you time by streamlining this part of your study. I’ll use The Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament: Acts for this tutorial. If you’d like to follow along, you can download it here for free throughout the month of August.

The Trinity in the Old Testament

In OT291 The Jewish Trinity: How the Old Testament Reveals the Christian Godhead, Dr. Michael Heiser explores the identity and role of the Godhead in the Old Testament. He discusses the notion that “Two Powers in heaven”—Yahweh and the “second Yahweh figure”—are present throughout the Old Testament, with this second Yahweh figure referred to as the Angel of the Lord, the Name, and the Presence.

Dr. Heiser comments, “There are certain passages in the Old Testament that sounded to the ear like the God of Israel was two. There was this two-ness but yet one sort of idea going on. Rabbis took note of this and referred to the idea as Two Powers being in heaven.” While the Two Powers are evident throughout the Old Testament, there are also hints of the Trinity.

D.A. Carson on Interpreting Scripture

Bible Study Magazine
gives you the tools and insight you need to study the Bible and apply it in your life. No matter how you’re currently studying Scripture, BSM helps you get more out of your time in the Word.

The September-October issue of Bible Study Magazine features D.A. Carson,  one of the most respected New Testament scholars in the world. He touches on important topics like training pastors, making disciples, healthy prayer life, and interpreting Scripture.

With your time in the Word comes your interpretation of its meanings. The basis of theology is Scripture interpretation, and as Carson says below, “We sometimes read the Bible to answer our own questions. We all come with a matrix of presuppositions, so it’s relatively easy to misinterpret Scripture.” This makes the way in which we approach Scripture incredibly important. In this excerpt from the latest issue of BSM, Carson discusses the importance of correct biblical interpretation.

Serve the Church without Burning Out

Ministry Leadership Bundle_Artwork 2
Ministry leaders have a high calling. They must serve their churches and communities with grace and integrity, evaluate the spiritual progress of their congregations, and unite the church to work as a body. They live lives of service and humility while inspiring and motivating others. And they do all this while planning sermons and Bible studies, praying for their people, organizing small-group ministries, overseeing the administrative needs of the church, and performing the countless other duties of church life.

Those are some intimidating responsibilities, and the risk of burnout is huge. Ministry leaders don’t simply need to learn a set of leadership skills; they need an approach that values their spiritual formation just as highly as boots-on-the-ground training.
