4 Great Reasons to Pre-order Jacob Neusner

If you’re not familiar with Jacob Neusner, right now is a great time to add the Jacob Neusner Jewish Studies Bundle (99 vols.) to your library and get to know this prolific scholar and author, especially while it’s on Pre-Pub. Here are four reasons to pre-order this bundle now:

1. Learn from the most published academic—ever

Jacob Neusner was one of the highest regarded scholars of Judaism of all time. In fact, he was the creator of modern Jewish studies, transforming the way we think and learn about Judaism by applying academic methods to the various texts. He authored over 1,000 books—and that’s not including his translations. Plus, most of his work was published by academic publishers such as Yale University Press and Brill. These works have a broad range, from the Talmud to analyses of western Judaism and the Holocaust. [Read more…]

Search Original Languages for Word Meaning with Unique Logos Tools

When you’re studying Greek or Hebrew, searching morphological forms with Logos is a huge timesaver. Ἀγάπη (agape) in the dative singular? Got it! A third-person singular Hebrew verb in Qal stem with a 3MS pronominal suffix? Bam!

But Logos can see something else in the Bible that you might not realize: meaning.

A computer can parse forms fairly well given a few rules; that is, a lot of such work can be done automatically. But it takes many man-hours and coffee breaks to teach the computer to see meaning in the Bible. It literally takes years to mark up the Bible with all that data. But it’s worth it. Now you can search the original languages for a meaning—like the figurative use of “brother” as opposed to the literal, or like the most frequent subjects or objects of a given verb. And that means you can execute more targeted searches, with fewer but more accurate results. You can find what you need to find in your Bible study. [Read more…]

Know What You Believe about Baptism

Baptism is a hotly contested topic in the Christian faith. It’s not about whether you sprinkle or dunk. It’s not even about whether you baptize children of believers or believers only. Christians continue to debate what the sacrament of baptism actually symbolizes. Is it a sign of the covenant, or is it a seal? Or is it simply a memorial of God’s salvific work? [Read more…]
