Is the Pope Right or Wrong on “Lead Us Not Into Temptation”?

Pope Francis recently created an international theological incident when he told an Italian TV interviewer that the classic, traditional wording from the Lord’s Prayer, “Lead us not into temptation,” is “not a good translation.” Instead he favors translating this particular petition in the Lord’s Prayer something like, “Don’t let us fall into temptation.” The pope argued,

I am the one that’s falling. It’s not [God] who’s leading me into temptation to see, then, how I fall. No, a father doesn’t do this. A father helps you to get up right away. The one who is leading you into temptation is Satan. That is Satan’s mission. The prayer that we say means: “When Satan leads me into temptation, please give me your hand.”

Is the pope’s (re-)translation of the Bible here right or wrong?

5 Words You’re Probably Not Getting in the Christmas Story

Every Christmas Eve growing up, my father read the Christmas story from Luke 2 in the King James Version.

And every Christmas Eve, I thought I understood it. I largely did. But I now see little things I was missing—through no fault of my own, nor of the KJV translators, but simply because of the inevitable process of language change. The KJV is 400 years old, after all. I now see these little things because I focused hard on them while writing my new book, Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible.

Here are five things you might not have noticed you were missing in the Christmas story in Luke 2 in the King James Version. [Read more…]

In Memory of R.C. Sproul: 20 Quotes on the Glory of God

R.C. Sproul, beloved theologian, writer, and pastor, went to be with the Lord in the afternoon of December 14th. He founded Ligonier Ministries in the 1970s to provide theologically rich Christian teaching to people with little or no access to it. Using radio, print, and television media, Sproul introduced many people to the Reformed theology, advocating for a revival of Calvinism among evangelicals. [Read more…]

Logos Pro Weekly Training: Studying Satan’s Tactics

The best defense, as they say, is a good offense. Put in prose, this means that it’s generally better to be proactive rather than passive toward your enemies. The same goes for the enemies of Jesus and his followers. The better God’s people know one of their premier enemies, namely Satan, the more effective they will be in overcoming his schemes.

In this week’s video, we’ll take a look at some of Satan’s tactics and pinpoint how specific workers of evil attack God’s people. As a second part to this exercise, launch your own study to determine how you should arm yourself to go on the offense. [Read more…]

How to Create a Slide Show with Sermon Editor

As you well know Logos Bible Software is huge, with many features. Depending on your wants and methods of study and lesson preparation, you may not need all that Logos has to offer. So I always tell people at Camp Logos, Use what you need, but always try to explore more available options. You may just discover a very helpful tool.

Let’s apply that advice to the Sermon Editor. As I’ve written before, with one Sermon file we can create up to four separate documents at once! You may, however, respond, “In my current situation, I just don’t need all that power and flexibility. So, I’m not using the Sermon feature.”

Fair enough. If, however, you’re like many Bible students and teachers, you at least occasionally need to prepare a PowerPoint slideshow of Scripture verses. If that’s the case, then just use the Sermon Editor to quickly create your slides. [Read more…]
