How to Instantly Spot NT Allusions to the OT

LogosPro_blogOne of the most illuminating things that can happen in your Bible reading is when a few of your neurons fire as they pick up a subtle allusion a New Testament author makes to the writings of an Old Testament one. There’s great value in making a connection like that. It’s like what N.T. Wright once said about metaphors, “Metaphor consists in bringing two sets of ideas close together, close enough for a spark to jump… so that the spark, in jumping, illuminates for a moment the whole area around, changing perceptions as it does so.”

Original-Language Study for the Rest of Us

Explore biblical theologyLanguage is a funny thing. A single word can have many meanings, and many words can describe a single concept. In our native tongue, we usually have a pretty good grasp on which words we can use to express certain thoughts and ideas. But when we encounter languages that we haven’t spent a lifetime speaking and reading, our grasp on these words can slip.

In biblical studies, interacting with Hebrew and Greek is a necessity to understand the original context of the text. For students of these biblical languages or anyone without formal training, the original biblical languages can seem like barriers preventing them from fully understanding the Bible. Resources like the Hebrew–Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament (HALOT) and the Greek English Lexicon of the New Testament and Early Christian Literature (BDAG) are geared toward intense academic work, which can make them less accessible to students and virtually inaccessible to anyone without formal training.

The Lexham Theological Wordbook makes this lexical information accessible for a broader audience. This resource is designed to make the original biblical languages accessible to people from all interest levels. Plus, it’s designed to work seamlessly with your Logos Bible Software library.

Why Are Anglicans So Passionate about Reason?

anglican three legged stool

Recently on the blog, we examined the roles Scripture and tradition play in Anglican belief and practice. As I’ve said, these are two of the three main sources for Anglican theology, which I’ve referred to as the “three-legged stool.” Anglicans attempt to keep all three of these legs in balance so that the stool does not tip. The third leg of this stool is reason. As with tradition, reason does not trump Scripture; Scripture remains the first among equals.

The 2 Logos Now Features I Use Every Day

Logos Now

I’m new to the Logos Pro team, and I admit to bringing with me from the East Coast some level of confusion about Logos Now. I’m pretty techie, I like new software— especially Bible software—and yet I was just too busy to make myself figure out this new thing from Logos.

I got my free month and then let it lapse.

Now I’m back in, and now I’m motivated—and not just because I work here, but because my two new favorite features are only available in Logos Now: Corresponding Words and (especially) Multiview Resources.

From Muslim Apologist to Christian Teacher

Ravi Zacharias' apologetics ministry features a muslim convert

The November/December issue of Bible Study Magazine features Nabeel Qureshi—an itinerant speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and bestselling author of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus.

Qureshi was raised in a close-knit Pakistani-American family devoted to Islam—so when he became convinced of the truth of the Bible and the claims of the Christian faith, he knew everything would change. “I knew from studying the Gospels that I was called to give up everything. Jesus says in Matthew 10, ‘He who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me.’ ” 

In Jessi Strong’s interview with Qureshi, he opened up about the role of apologetics in his conversion to Christianity:
