Is the Idea of the Imminent Return of Jesus Biblical?

I recall the traumatic experience of seeing the movie A Thief in the Night as a teenager. The film was about how Jesus could return at any moment—like a thief in the night, a description borrowed from 1 Thessalonians 5:2. The message: If we weren’t believers, we could be left behind by the Lord. The movie didn’t lead to my decision to put my faith in Christ, but it did accomplish one desired effect—it scared me. Is the idea of the imminent return of Jesus biblical?

A Brief Biblical Theology of God’s Presence

Matthew 1:23

One of the most fascinating developments to follow through the Bible’s storyline is the concept of God dwelling with his people. God, the creator of all that exists, gradually reveals his desire to be present and active with those who belong to him. Tracing this progressive revelation is cause for great worship and wondrous hope. [Read more…]

How to Easily Convert Measurements in a Passage

Beginning in Genesis 6:14, God tells Noah to build a boat according to exact specifications: 300 cubits X 50 cubits X 30 cubits. I’m not sure about you, but I don’t normally speak in terms of cubits today. I understand feet and yards, but cubits are another story.

This isn’t an isolated occurrence because unfamiliar measurements appear throughout the Bible. Fortunately for us, as we study passages with Logos 8, we can easily convert measurements in the text. [Read more…]

Logos for Spiritual Formation: the Lectio Divina Workflow


Guest writer Adam B. Shaeffer holds an MA in Spiritual Formation from Talbot School of Theology and a PhD in Theology from Durham University. He is already a big fan of Logos 8.

In this post, I’ll be exploring one of the ways Logos 8 can play a vital role in our spiritual formation.

One of the primary aspects of how we change is establishing new habits, new ways of doing things, and new ways of engaging with the world around us.

Many of us have good habits, but how often do we ask if the habit could be improved? Just because our habits are good doesn’t mean that they are bearing fruit in our lives. Our good habits can actually sabotage our transformation if we do them thoughtlessly. This is, to my mind, one of the primary motivations behind the ancient practice of Lectio Divina. [Read more…]

Kuyper: Are You Keeping Watch over Your Flock?

Many of us reread the Christmas story every year with a sense of routine, or perhaps even staleness. It can be all too easy in our rereading to miss how the Christmas story challenges us in new ways.

In the following excerpt from Honey from the Rock, a brand-new book from Lexham Press, Kuyper invites us to put ourselves in the shepherds’ shoes. Instead of passing over their work as part of the background, Kuyper challenges us to learn from their watch over all that God entrusted to them. [Read more…]

Is Logos for Everyone? Here’s One Simple Reason It Is

Logos can perform some technical Bible study tasks, like morphology queries and syntax searches. That’s why a lot of pastors and scholars use it.

But if you don’t know what morphology is, is Logos beyond you?

Not at all. [Read more…]

How to Use the New Theology Guide

As I’ve talked to Christians throughout the years, I’ve often heard statements like: Theology is just for pastors. I’d like to study different doctrines in the Bible, but I don’t know where to start. Understanding doctrine is difficult.

If you’ve ever expressed such sentiments, I’ve got great news for you. In Logos 8 we have a brand new research assistant called the Theology Guide. This Guide, based on the resource, Lexham Survey of Theology, assembles various pieces of information in one place so we gain a good survey of major doctrines in Scripture.

Let’s take it out for a spin: [Read more…]

Get 3 Books for under $3

There are only a few days left to get this month’s Free Book of the Month: New Covenant Commentary: 2 Timothy and Titus.

The first Thessalonian church was grieving over those who had died, enduring harsh persecution, and struggling with questions about the future. But according to author Aída Besançon Spencer, Paul offered more than wishful thinking or pie-in-the-sky comfort to the Thessalonian church. He offered the comfort and reassurance of hope in the Messiah Jesus. [Read more…]
