Deciphering the Book of Acts with DIY Bible Study

diy-bible-studyLearn how to study the Bible and immerse yourself in its wonder with DIY Bible Study.

This highly visual curriculum leverages the power of Logos Bible Software to help you take your Bible study to the next level. With application-focused content, beautifully designed images, and practical video tutorials, DIY Bible Study gives you everything you need to study the Bible to the fullest extent.

This incredible resource is now available as an individual add-on—and right now, it’s on sale for 20% off!

Better Bible study

We built DIY Bible Study to be fully integrated into Logos Bible Software. We’re leveraging all of Logos’ amazing tools to help you study the Bible. As you work through this resource, your learning is framed by sections that teach you Bible study principles that are demonstrated within Logos itself. You’ll learn how to study the Bible and use the most powerful Bible software to accomplish your goals.

There’s also a prebuilt, year-long reading plan included with DIY Bible Study. In just 10 minutes a day, you can go through the entire resource, digging deeper into the Bible with each lesson. It’s also easily used as a handbook during your regular study. We wanted it to be as flexible and as accessible as possible so anyone could benefit from it, no matter where you find yourself on your walk with Jesus.

Step into the Scriptures

Following the grand narrative of the Bible can be difficult if you haven’t spent years studying the Scriptures. Following the narrative of a single book of the Bible can be just as difficult. With DIY Bible Study, both of these endeavors become much easier.

The book of Acts is a labyrinthine story about establishment of the early church and the spread of the gospel. It bridges the gap between the life of Christ (the Gospels) and the teachings of the church (the New Testament letters). Acts is a witness to the Holy Spirit’s work in the lives of people, the direct continuation of Jesus’ ministry.

Geography plays an important role in Acts, as Luke traces the progress of the Gospel away from Jerusalem out to the “end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). DIY Bible Study gives you the tools to help you understand the structure of the book, geographically and temporally.

This map depicts many of the locations in the Graeco-Roman Empire—the setting of the book of Acts:

DIY_Acts Map

And there are so many events to keep track of in the book of Acts, it takes two slides to recount all of them:

DIY_Acts Timeline 1

DIY_Acts Timeline 2

Once you’ve wrapped your head around the physical themes of the book, you can start to tackle the theological themes presented by Luke. Acts is an inspirational account of the early church, stirring us to move forward with the work of God, toward the “end of the earth.”

The Bible is your story

With DIY Bible Study, you’ll get an overview of the entire Bible, one study at a time. You’ll also discover methods to improve your study, and you’ll be introduced to helpful study tools.

DIY Bible Study is now available as an individual add-on and is in most Logos 6 base packages.

The Importance of the Resurrection

mobile-ed-nt211-introducing-the-gospels-and-acts-their-background-nature-and-purposeEaster Sunday is coming up this week, and churches all over the world will be celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Resurrection is the central event of the New Testament—an event that is still transforming the world and calling for a response today. It’s the culmination of Jesus’ earthly ministry, and it forms the foundation for the church.

In this video, several of our Mobile Ed speakers discuss the importance of the Resurrection:

With Logos Mobile Education, you can learn more about the relevance of the Resurrection, as well as the early church and the life and teachings of Jesus.

In NT211 Introducing the Gospels and Acts: Their Background, Nature, and Purpose, Dr. Darrell Bock surveys the messages of these important books. This course includes an entire unit on the Resurrection, through which you’ll see how the Resurrection is portrayed differently in each of the four Gospels, learn what various groups in the first century believed about resurrection, and understand how the Resurrection vindicated the claims of Jesus and provided a pathway for eternal life.

This course is on sale until April 4, so order it now and save 15%!

The Studies in the Gospels Bundle includes nine courses taught by leading scholars like Craig Evans and Mark Strauss. You’ll get book studies that look in depth at each of the four Gospels and show how each Gospel writer portrays the resurrection of Jesus; courses that highlight specific aspects of Jesus’ ministry, like the Sermon on the Mount and the parables and miracles of Jesus; and courses that examine the genre of the Gospels and the world of the New Testament.

This bundle is currently on Pre-Pub: order it now and get 41% off! You’ll get five of the courses now and the rest as they are released.

Get More out of Your James Study

lexham-press-james-bundleWe love creating unique resources to help you study the Bible.

In the latest issue of Bible Study Magazine, we featured the book of James. And to help you maximize your study of this letter, we’ve put together the Lexham Press James Bundle. You can get all the resources you need to study the book of James and share its message.

Improve your understanding of James

Let’s take a look at how these resources equip you to get the most out of James.

James contains more than twice the average amount of imperative commands compared to other books of the Bible. These commands give us a glimpse into his concern for the early church—and they give us practical instruction for living out the gospel. James 1:19–20 is one example of this practical advice. James: Simply the Gospel from the Not Your Average Bible Study series provides us with reflective questions to consider as we are shaped by the transformative power of Scripture:

James Bundle 01

In William Varner’s To Love God and to Love Others: A Devotional Commentary on James, we can begin to understand the relationship between James 1:19–20 and the themes of the entire letter:

James Bundle 02

From Varner, we learn that James 1:19–20 could be viewed as a sort of table of contents for the rest of the letter. Varner goes even deeper into the themes of James in his Evangelical Exegetical Commentary volume on the letter:

James Bundle 03

Steve Runge’s High Definition Commentary: James examines the linguistic and literary clues in the text to help us fully understand what James is communicating. These important concepts are highlighted with creative illustrations:

James Bundle 04

If you’re working through James, the Lexham Press James Bundle will help you get the most out of this immensely practical book. Separately, these resources would cost almost $100.00, but you can get them for over 30% off in this bundle.

How to Become a Sermon Architect

mobile-ed-cm103-invitation-to-biblical-preaching-ii-preaching-biblical-sermons“Building a sermon is kind of like being an architect,” says Dr. Kent Edwards. “[If] you travel around the world, you’re going to see that there are many different styles of buildings. . . . Architecture is remarkably different, but there [are] certain basic rules that every architect has to follow. If they ignore those rules, the buildings will collapse.” Preachers are like architects in this way, says Edwards. “There’s no universal way to organize a sermon, but there are principles that have to be followed.”

In this clip from CM103 Invitation to Biblical Preaching II: Preaching Biblical Sermons, Dr. Kent Edwards describes one of these essential principles that every sermon must follow:

BibleTech to Showcase Logos 6’s Innovations

BibleTech - email header

To create Logos 6, developers, scholars, and linguists all pitched in to solve problems, leverage data, and prepare the software for other cultures. And many of them will be presenting their most innovative work at this year’s BibleTech conference.

Here are four speakers you’ll hear from at BibleTech:

  1. Factbook is one of Logos 6’s most popular tools. Software developer Tom Philpot will talk about some of the critical challenges our development team faced in implementing it, and he’ll discuss the future of this exciting feature.
  2. Sean Boisen’s talk, “Seeing the Big Picture: Visualizing the Bible Data,” will discuss the ways that Logos datasets can be visually explored. He describes it like this:

    For many people, Bible study is about closely and carefully reading small portions of the biblical text. But growing quantities of Bible data, together with data visualization techniques, are creating new opportunities to literally ‘see the big picture’ of the Bible. These approaches uncover larger patterns that can both provide insight and direct personal study. This presentation will review the many datasets that Logos has developed and demonstrate how they offer new ways to visualize the Bible.

  3. Dr. Steve Runge, scholar-in-residence of High Definition Commentary fame, will discuss low-tech tools and strategies that can improve and simplify grammatical analysis and prevent Bible scholars from being overwhelmed by too much detail from advanced original-language databases.
  4. Rick Brannan made a tremendous contribution to the datasets in Logos 6. He’ll be speaking on the localization of these datasets—you’ll get a unique perspective on the information you use daily in your software.

Come hear these and 22 other riveting talks about the intersection of the Bible and technology at BibleTech.

Studying Paul’s Letters with Mobile Ed

mobile-ed-pauls-letters-bundlePaul’s letters are among the most beloved books of the Bible. Their balance of both deep theological insights and practical advice makes them invaluable resources for the church today.

In the Mobile Ed: Paul’s Letters Bundle, leading experts like Dr. Douglas Moo and Dr. Lynn Cohick walk you through these important letters. They describe the historical background and Paul’s purpose in writing each letter, explore the key themes Paul addresses, and explain how to best apply these important letters to our lives today.

These seven courses cover eight of Paul’s letters:

The Pastoral Epistles

In NT225 Survey of the Pastoral Epistles, Dr. Kenneth Waters surveys 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus. He reviews seven major themes from these letters and looks at the question of who Timothy and Titus were. Dr. Waters places the letters in the context of Paul’s travels outlined in the book of Acts and discusses Paul’s purpose in writing them.

Galatians and Ephesians

In NT341 Book Study: Paul’s Letter to the Galatians, Dr. Douglas Moo talks about who the Galatians were. He walks through the text, highlighting major themes and showing how you can apply this letter in your life. Dr. Lynn Cohick provides a passage-by-passage analysis of Ephesians in NT343 Book Study: Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians. In addition to providing in-depth analysis of well-known passages like Paul’s exhortation to “put on the whole armor of God” (Ephesians 6:11), she takes a close look at the special topics of household codes and marriage in the first century.


The bundle includes two courses by Dr. Robert Sloan, both on Paul’s letter to the Philippians. In NT344 Paul’s Theology and the Letter to the Philippians, Dr. Sloan provides a brief overview of major themes in Paul’s theology as a whole and shows where those themes are present in Philippians. In NT345 Book Study: Paul’s Letter to the Philippians, he walks through the letter in detail, exploring its key themes and historical background.

Colossians and Philemon

In NT347 Book Study: Paul’s Letter to the Colossians, Dr. Joshua Jipp looks at the situation in Colossae and explains how Paul’s letter addresses the challenges faced by that believing community. He also discusses how to read the genre of ancient letters. In NT348 Book Study: Paul’s Letters to the Colossians and Philemon, Dr. Constantine Campbell looks at Colossians, as well as Paul’s letter to Philemon. In addition to examining the content of these two letters, Dr. Campbell includes sections on preaching from them.
