Logos 6: Display Parallel Passages from the Gospels

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.

I remember years ago preparing a sermon on Jesus’ Gethsemane prayer. During my study, I discovered that all four Gospel writers spoke of this event.

Since at the time I didn’t own a harmony of the Gospels (a book presenting in parallel columns the same event from various gospels) here’s what I did. I started off turning the pages in my Bible back and forth from Matthew to Mark to Luke to John and then back to Matthew. After a few paper cuts, I devised a better plan. I photocopied the Gethsemane verses from each Gospel and taped them together side by side. I made my own harmony!

That homemade harmony severed its purpose for that message, but thankfully today in Logos 6 there’s a much improved method—the Parallel Gospel Reader.

Here’s one way to use it:

  • Select the tools menu (A)
  • Click All interactive resources (B)


  • Click Parallel Gospel Reader (this interactive resource is only available in Logos 6 Gold and higher) (C)


  • Select a Bible, such as the English Standard Version, from the drop-down list (this Bible will be used to display the verses) (D)
  • Select a harmony from the drop-down list, such as A Harmony of the Gospels by A.T. Robertson (E)
  • Notice the table of contents displaying events in the life of Jesus (F)


  • Jump to the Gethsemane prayer using either of these methods:
    • Scroll to section 152 (G), or
    • Type a reference from the event, such as John 18:1, in the reference box (H) and press the Enter key


  • Click the section title to display the verses (I)
  • Notice the accounts of the same event from different Gospel writers


I encourage you to carefully read the various accounts of Jesus’ prayer in the garden several times. As you do, you’ll see that Matthew, Mark, and Luke each present different details about the agonizing prayer. Matthew uses words like troubledvery sorrowful even unto death, and fell on his face. Mark adds greatly distressed and Abba. Luke writes knelt down, angel from heaven strengthening him, and his sweat became like great drops of blood. All three refer to this cup.

By comparing and contrasting these various accounts, you’ll discover this agonizing prayer was not a brief, easy time of reelection as is often portrayed; this was a spiritual wrestling match!

So as you’re studying the Gospels, forget the paper and tape, but don’t forget this helpful interactive resource that quickly displays parallel passages from various harmonies of the Gospels.

For more detailed information about working with interactive resources, as well as the rest of Logos 6’s new tools, check out these new Logos 6 training materials:

And for live, hands-on training, be sure to register for an upcoming Camp Logos live training seminar, including events in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and Columbus, Georgia (Atlanta area).

Get 61 Scholarly Volumes at an Incredible Price

international-critical-commentary-seriesThis month only, you can save over $500.00 on the International Critical Commentary Series. This series provides fantastic scholarship and has been recently reconfigured with two new volumes.

Through February, add this series to your Logos library at an incredible price. 

Isaiah 56–66

Published in 2014, this volume continues in the same vein as previous Isaiah commentaries in the series. Written by John Goldingay, a noted specialist in Isaiah studies, this volume retails for over $100.00 in print.

As John Oswalt notes in his July 2014 Themelios review:

The commentary itself is very densely written. . . . Each section is very complete: the textual notes are detailed both in the discussion of the issue and in the number of sources referred to concerning the issue, and the introductions consider matters of literary structure, word usage, and etymology in great detail.

In Logos 6, you can reference individual sections, just as Oswalt recommends. The guides section allows you to jump to a specific chapter and verse, helping you get the most out of such a detailed work.


Similarly, this recent addition, published in 2013, brings the essential elements of a scholarly commentary together in one place. Priced at $130.00 in print, this 848-page work offers serious scholars a wealth of information. With linguistic, textual, archaeological, historical, literary, and theological aids, this single volume brings new methods of study for a fresh look at this epistle.

Upgrade your series and save!

In print, these two volumes retail for a combined $230.00. But when you upgrade from the 59-volume collection, you can get both for just $59.31!

Or, if you’re starting from scratch, you can get the entire 61-volume series for less than $87 a month for 18 months with an interest-free payment plan.

3 Reasons You’ll Love or Hate The Screwtape Letters

Email_HeaderThe Screwtape Letters is a series of fictional letters written by C.S. Lewis. In this collection, an elder demon, Uncle Screwtape, is advising his young nephew, Wormwood, on the best way to ensnare and beguile the human he has been assigned.

Here are three reasons you’ll either love or hate The Screwtape Letters:

1. The letters apply to you

According to Uncle Screwtape, the true job of a demon is to undermine faith and prevent the formation of virtues. Reading The Screwtape Letters will polarize your feelings. It forces a type of introspection that is seldom achieved in our fast-paced society. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I consistently building virtue?
  • What virtues have I let slip?
  • What has taken their place?

Social Image_CourageQuote-1200x1200

Click to tweet | Click to share

When you come face to face with this powerful appeal, you must draw back for self-examination. You’ll either hate this as it forces you to acknowledge your own failures, or love it as it spurs you on to strive for courage again.

2. They’re different each time you read them

Each time you read these fictional letters to Wormword, you’ll discover new insights. Upon rereading this last time, I was impressed anew with the historical context in which Lewis wrote (having published this work in 1942):

Now that it is certain the German humans will bombard your patient’s town and that his duties will keep him in the thick of the danger, we must consider our policy. Are we to aim at cowardice–or at courage, with consequent pride–or at hatred of the Germans?

Lewis recognizes the danger war poses to the individual’s soul. And he discusses it in a time of fierce rhetoric and virulent opinions, possibly the most turbulent time in the United Kingdom’s history. Given the current world situation, this admonition is as appropriate today as it was over 70 years ago.

This is only one example of the numerous insights presented in this work. If you prefer a book that is old, worn, and familiar each time you return to it, this is not the book for you. But if you enjoy the discovery that comes with a fresh reading, you will enjoy it for years to come.

3. They’ll help you see the world differently

How many times as we go about our day do we completely ignore the power of the enemy to mildly influence our decisions? Lewis questions our presuppositions when he writes:

There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them.

If, as Scripture states, we are in spiritual warfare (Eph. 6:12), then the battle rages around us every day. The great reformer Martin Luther understood this when he penned the beloved hymn, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”:

And though this world with devils filled, should threaten to undo us.

We will not fear what God hath willed His truth to triumph through us.

If you prefer to go about your daily life blissfully unaware, don’t read this book. But if you seek to have your eyes opened, then this satirical piece is the perfect starting point.

Getting to Know Greg Monette: Faithlife’s Canadian Representative

Greg MonetteJust over a year ago, Greg Monette joined Faithlife as our Canadian market manager. Some of you may have seen him at conferences and events across Canada over the past year, but if you haven’t yet met him, here’s your chance to get to know him and hear about his upcoming events.

1. Tell us about yourself.

Joining the team at Faithlife was a proud moment for me. I knew I was becoming part of a special team of people working to improve the way the Bible is studied around the world. My one-year anniversary was this past October, and my pride in this company has increased drastically since I started.

I’m a passionate Canadian who cares deeply about biblical literacy in my country of origin. I’ve lived in Canada my entire life. Canada is home. My wife, Julie, and I have been married for six years and have a joint mission in helping the Christian community in Canada to become even more relevant in our own lifetime. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has changed our lives and we know the power it has to transform communities. We know about Jesus from the Bible and because of the separation in millennia that separates us from the person of Jesus it is crucial that people are equipped with solid tools to help them go deeper in their study of Scripture than they ever dreamed was possible.

This is what Faithlife’s signature software, Logos Bible Software, is all about. It is a time machine that takes us back close to the time of Jesus so that his message can continue to transform the world. I’m excited when other people discover the true meaning of a particular verse or passage of Scripture for the first time. There is no greater feeling than to know what Jesus’ words really mean!

2. What gets you excited about our products?

As previously mentioned, we are separated from the time of Jesus by more than two millennia. In order to comprehend his message, we need good tools to help us uncover the meaning of Scripture in its original context.

Logos Bible Software is a well-stocked toolbox that provides the student of Scripture with what they need to peel through the multiple layers that separate us from the intricate details of what the Bible really says. From original-language tools, commentaries, background information, archaeological discoveries, maps, and fresh video content describing the Holy Land, there is really no better toolbox that one could own other than living at Oxford, Cambridge, Duke, or any other world-class university full time.

Simply put, Logos Bible Software brings the best of the best of biblical research and study into our own homes and for our convenience. Millions of hours of research and development (by hundreds of employees and sub-contractors) has made this possible.

3. What’s your favorite feature in the software?

My favourite feature in Logos Bible Software is still the fact that I can have thousands of commentaries, theological works, and original-language tools on my laptop wherever I am. My library goes with me. It doesn’t matter if I’m in a coffee shop, in an airplane, at home at my desk, or on vacation. I have a library that rivals many Bible colleges on my MacBook Pro! I still find this jaw-dropping.

I went to seminary and would spend hours in the library checking out commentaries, then would use commentaries to hold open other commentaries so that I could write down quotations. Not any more. I just highlight the section from Logos Bible Software that I want to include in my research and copy and paste it into my document, and the footnote is automatically produced for me! This is my favourite feature. I would purchase the software if this was all it did. But boy does it do a lot more than that!

4. What add-on product can you not live without?

This is a bit of shameless self-promotion, but I won’t be able to live without a copy of my own book, The Wrong Jesus. It’s in Pre-Pub right now, and I’m hoping it will become a Logos resource in the next year!

5. What is your market like? Who do you serve?

My market is Canada. Yes, that’s a big market. Canada is the second largest country in the world in land size (next to Russia), though our population is only one tenth the size of the US.

I present at conferences across the country and introduce Canadians to Faithlife and our signature product, Logos Bible Software. People often think that my target audience is pastors. Although pastors make up a significant segment of the Canadian Logos customer base, the majority of users are actually laypeople. We also have excellent relationships with a number of Canadian seminaries and Bible colleges.

6. What are some goals or plans you have for your market?

My number-one goal for the Canadian market this year is to present Logos at more conferences than ever before. We know that when we introduce people to the power of this software, they will understand what the hype is all about. I can remember when Starbucks first opened up in Nova Scotia where I live. People weren’t quite sure about it. Now, everyone knows about Starbucks and it has made a great impression on Canadian coffee drinkers. I’m totally convinced Logos Bible Software will do the same thing in the Canadian Christian market.

7. What are some upcoming events you’ll be at?

I’m excited to be presenting at the Apologetics Canada Conferences in both Vancouver and Toronto in March and April. I’m also really looking forward to returning to Saskatchewan to the Women’s Journey of Faith conference this Spring. Jodi Kozan (president and founder of WJOF) has created, in my opinion, the model for running a women’s conference in Canada. These are just a couple of the many conferences I will be presenting at this Spring.
