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.

Select Scrolling Options in Your Logos Bible App

Logos_300x300The Logos Bible app is your own personal library—it can house thousands of books. That’s why it was designed to read like a book. Instead of scrolling vertically like an online article, you simply swipe the screen horizontally like you’re turning the page.

Although many of you enjoy the swipe navigation, feedback in app reviews (iOS and Android) and the mobile-apps suggestion forum made it clear that others prefer to scroll.

Well, we have some good news!

You now have a vertical-scrolling option in your Logos Bible app.

We rolled out the scrolling feature in December 2014 as part of version 4.4. So far, many app users are loving this new option—and you can try right now in your app, too!

How to switch to vertical scrolling

Your app defaults to swipe navigation when you first download the Logos Bible app, but it’s easy to make the switch to vertical scrolling.

On iOS:

  1. Open any resource in your Logos app.
  2. Tap the screen once to bring up your options.
  3. Tap the “Aa” symbol in your toolbar.
  4. Tap the option for “Scrolling View.”

On Android:

  1. Open the settings menu.
  2. Check “Scroll View.”

The vertical scrolling option is also available in the Faithlife Study Bible app, the Noet app, the Vyrso app, and the Verbum app—which are all free in your app store of choice!

Get the free Logos Bible app today, then set your scrolling preference and try it out!

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.

Philippians

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.

The Paul’s Letters Bundle contains a wealth of information on these important books. You’ll come away with a better understanding of their historical background and themes and be better equipped to apply Paul’s teaching in your own life.

Logos 6: Attach the Same Note to Different Places

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

As you well know, the same biblical events are often mentioned in multiple places in the Bible. For example, Jesus’ prayer in Gethsemane is recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

Let’s imagine we’re working our way through Mark when we come to the phrase “this cup” in Mark 14:36. We want to record our insights, so we create a note for Mark 14:36. During our research, however, we discover this same phrase also appears in Matthew 26:39 and Luke 22:42. Rather than creating two more separate notes, we can actually attach the same original note to the other two verses with a feature known as an attachment point.

Here’s how to get started with this power-user trick:

First, create the original note:

  • Choose Documents | Notes
  • Name the file something like “Notes on the Gospels” (A)
  • Make sure the view is set to Full (B)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-1

  • Open a Bible to Mark 14:36
  • Right click any word in Mark 14:36 (C)
  • Select Mark 14:36 from the context menu (D)
  • Select Add a note to “Notes on the Gospels” (E)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-2

  • Notice Logos creates, in the file, an individual note named “Mark 14:36” (F) with a Content box underneath it (G)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-3

  • Type your research in the Content box—for example, The demonstrative pronoun “this” implies nearness or being close at hand. (H)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-4

  • Notice Logos places a note indicator in the Bible next to Mark 14:36 (I)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-5

  • Rest the cursor on the indicator to see a pop-up preview of the note content (J)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-6
Next, add the attachment points:

  • Rest the cursor on the name of the note, “Mark 14:36” (K)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-7

  • Click the arrow link that appears to the far right of the note (L)
  • Select Edit attachment points (M)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-8

  • Type Matthew 26:39 in the reference box (N)
  • Select the biblical reference from the drop-down list (O)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-9

  • Type Luke 22:42 in the reference box (P)
  • Select the biblical reference from the drop-down list (Q)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-10

  • Click Done to close the attachment-points box (R)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-11

  • Navigate to Matthew 26:39 and Luke 22:42 in the Bible and notice a note indicator next to each verse (S)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-12

Now regardless of which account of Jesus’ prayer you’re reading, you’ll have your insights about “this cup” right there with you!
