Using Logos in Seminary and Ministry

using logos in seminary

When one of the Logos Pros traveled to Desiring God to train John Piper on how to use Logos Bible Software, we offered additional training to Bethlehem College and Seminary Faculty. In this post, BCS adjunct professor Dieudonné Tamfu writes of his own experience with Logos.

What Agape Really Means

What does Agape really mean?

“Love” is the third most commonly looked up word at Do you want to know what “love” means? You ought to. “Love God” and “love others” are the two most important commands of the Bible, on the authority of Christ himself.

Maybe you’ve already heard that agape (ἀγάπη) is the standard word for love in the Greek New Testament, and maybe you’ve heard that it points to a specific kind of love: a selfless, giving, non-emotional love—as opposed to the friendship love of philia (φιλία).

But I want to question these common assertions, give you a liberating tip for using Greek in your Bible study (whether you know Greek or not), and then apply that tip to one passage in which the meaning of agape figures prominently.
