How to Use the Bible Browser When You’re “Just Looking”

Like many Christians during this season, I’ve been rereading the Christmas story in Matthew and Luke. Of course, in Matthew we find the Magi visiting Jesus at some point after his birth. Famously they testified, we saw his star when it rose.

Without getting into the specifics of what the star may have been, I started thinking that star or stars are mentioned frequently in Scripture in various contexts. So, I just wanted to explore various instances of how stars are mentioned in the Bible. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular. In fact, I didn’t know what I was looking for other than stars.

So during this “just looking” moment, I turned to a Logos feature that I’m learning to appreciate and enjoy more and more, the Bible Browser.

Take this out for a spin and see if you like it:

Calvinist, by Les Lanphere, Is Bold Yet Self-Aware

The much-anticipated documentary from Les Lanphere finally dropped this September.

Calvinist gathered buzz before filming even began. Three days after launching his Kickstarter for the project, Lanphere met his goal. By the time it ended, he had more than doubled it. Prominent Reformed leaders even went out of their way to contact him to express their support and offer their help.

The documentary traces the resurgence of Calvinism in America over the last several decades, explaining the basic tenets of Calvinism along the way. [Read more…]

Is the Pope Right or Wrong on “Lead Us Not Into Temptation”?

Pope Francis recently created an international theological incident when he told an Italian TV interviewer that the classic, traditional wording from the Lord’s Prayer, “Lead us not into temptation,” is “not a good translation.” Instead he favors translating this particular petition in the Lord’s Prayer something like, “Don’t let us fall into temptation.” The pope argued,

I am the one that’s falling. It’s not [God] who’s leading me into temptation to see, then, how I fall. No, a father doesn’t do this. A father helps you to get up right away. The one who is leading you into temptation is Satan. That is Satan’s mission. The prayer that we say means: “When Satan leads me into temptation, please give me your hand.”

Is the pope’s (re-)translation of the Bible here right or wrong?

5 Words You’re Probably Not Getting in the Christmas Story

Every Christmas Eve growing up, my father read the Christmas story from Luke 2 in the King James Version.

And every Christmas Eve, I thought I understood it. I largely did. But I now see little things I was missing—through no fault of my own, nor of the KJV translators, but simply because of the inevitable process of language change. The KJV is 400 years old, after all. I now see these little things because I focused hard on them while writing my new book, Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible.

Here are five things you might not have noticed you were missing in the Christmas story in Luke 2 in the King James Version. [Read more…]
