Why Bible Typography Matters

LogosPro_blogThe style and arrangement of words in your Bible is like wallpaper for most people: you only notice it if it changes, and maybe not even then. But in fact, the typography in our Bibles matters a great deal—and it matters because it means. For instance, when editors place line breaks between two sentences, they are communicating that there’s a shift in the flow of thought. We use paragraphs in modern typography to group related sentences together.

The biblical authors, as far as we know, didn’t use paragraph breaks as we do. And ancient biblical manuscripts have relatively few breaks of any kind. But like periods, quotation marks, and other modern conventions, they have to be there in today’s writing. Their absence communicates something as much as their presence. So editors at Bible publishing houses are forced to choose where to put breaks, and standard editions of the Greek New Testament even notate where paragraphs occur in various major Bible translations.

[UPDATED] Notes Sync Maintenance

UPDATE:

We started performing maintenance on Notes sync during the U.S. holiday Monday, September 7th. We started Monday, September 7th at 2 PM PDT, and we originally expected the service to be offline until Tuesday, September 8th at 8 AM PDT, however, the process is taking about twice as long as our preliminary tests indicated. We now believe it will complete in the wee hours of the morning (PDT) of Wednesday, September 9th. Things are going well, just more slowly than we had expected.

ORIGINAL:

We will perform maintenance on Notes sync during the U.S. holiday Monday, September 7th. We plan to start Monday, September 7th at 2 PM PDT, and we expect the service to be offline until Tuesday, September 8th at 8 AM PDT.

You will still be able to create notes. They will be stored locally, but they will not sync up to our servers until the maintenance has been completed. During the maintenance, there will be an exclamation point indicating that there is an issue with sync; this is expected and it will remain until the maintenance has been completed.

If you have questions, please join the discussion in the forums.

Reveal the Worldview of an Ancient Hebrew

_MG_1321

The Bible is composed of disparate pieces, each with their own author, audience, and purpose. It can be hard to come to full understanding of Scripture when we focus on each piece separately. Only when we step back to see the wider context can we begin to understand the mosaic of Scripture.

What happens, though, when we encounter a passage that doesn’t fit into our understanding of the full picture of the Bible? Dr. Michael Heiser helps us understand these difficult or troublesome passages in his new book, The Unseen Realm.
