Like any specialized field, theology and biblical studies have developed their own unique vocabularies. That terminology has been refined over thousands of years—and often familiar terms are used in unique ways. For instance, although the terms “dichotomy” and “trichotomy” can be used in a variety of contexts, in theology they have a very distinct meaning—namely, they identify two major views regarding the makeup of human beings. Trichotomists say human beings are comprised of body, soul, and spirit, while dichotomists argue for a two-fold distinction: soul/spirit and body.

Watch this clip to learn how to empower your evangelism through prayer.

We are told, in Matthew 28:20 that part of discipleship is obeying all of Jesus’ commandments. The logical question then is, What did Jesus command? And a follow up inquiry would be How can we locate the commands of Christ in Scripture?
Since the makers of Logos Bible Software have carefully tagged Scripture, we can combine a couple of those tags into one search allowing us to quickly find where Jesus issued a command. First, however, we need a bit of background about the search.

Logos can shave hours off your study time by simplifying the mundane, time-consuming tasks that don’t have anything to do with actually studying the Bible. Tasks like flipping between multiple resources and tracking down obscure journal articles can quickly eat up the precious time you could be using to perform in-depth exegesis or develop key points of application.
Let me show you how Logos can save you time by streamlining this part of your study. I’ll use The Paideia Commentaries on the New Testament: Acts for this tutorial. If you’d like to follow along, you can download it here for free throughout the month of August.

In OT291 The Jewish Trinity: How the Old Testament Reveals the Christian Godhead, Dr. Michael Heiser explores the identity and role of the Godhead in the Old Testament. He discusses the notion that “Two Powers in heaven”—Yahweh and the “second Yahweh figure”—are present throughout the Old Testament, with this second Yahweh figure referred to as the Angel of the Lord, the Name, and the Presence.
Dr. Heiser comments, “There are certain passages in the Old Testament that sounded to the ear like the God of Israel was two. There was this two-ness but yet one sort of idea going on. Rabbis took note of this and referred to the idea as Two Powers being in heaven.” While the Two Powers are evident throughout the Old Testament, there are also hints of the Trinity.
