Keith Larson:
Perhaps someone as already done this, but I want to start a thread thanking Logos for this FREE gift! 

Agreed! This really adds value: it will make it easier to convince some of my colleagues to consider jumping into Logos.

I too want to add my thanks to Logos for this terrific gift. I wonder if users are aware of the potential of the the Classics collection and the Duke Papyrus database to supercharge the effectiveness of BDAG as a research tool. Logos has already powerfully value-added to their implementation of BDAG with hotlinks to to Greek and English versions of Josephus, Philo, ECF, LXX and pseudepigrapha, but if it BDAG gets tagged for these new resources, Wow! - what a powerhouse for study of the Greek of the New Testament. That's another reason to get hold of BDAG if you have the skills in Greek to benefit from it.

Go Logos!

Yes

if we meet and you forget me,

you have lost nothing.

But if you meet Jesus and forget Him,

you have lost everything.

I would also like to add my thanks.  As someone who has tried to use the Perseus site for Word Study but been frustrated by its usability, this will turbocharge my efforts, especially when BDAG is tagged for the Perseus resources.  It will also help a great deal with textual work in the NT.  Many thanks.

Adding my thanks too. I ordered everything - with two small children, and living in civil-war-history-rich Fredericksburg, VA, there's no doubt that this will come in handy at some point in the next 20 years of their education!  I've also posted this on my facebook page to give a heads up to my many homeschooling friends across the country.  To my surprise, the first "like" I got was a non-Christian friend. . . here's hoping it will end up being an outreach tool!

One more hearty "Thank you very much, Logos!" This one is from one with a Greek minor who never imagined in his wildest dreams that he could afford a set of classics linked to BDAG. And lemmatized, at that, to help a septuagenarian's fading memory.Big Smile

Adding my appreciation and thanks to those already listed.  I thank you! My library thanks you!  My wife thanks you (because I don't have to explain any charges and because adding 3,126 physical books to my library would be a gargantuan non-starter)!!  This is outstanding!

MJD:
How do you use the resource(s) Jonathan?

I mainly use them in diachronic and synchronic word studies of words used in the New Testament, to see how their usage has developed over time (if at all), and to assess their semantic range. These resources are also particularly useful for searching for phrases, which you can't look up conveniently in a lexicon. They're also a very useful resource for studying socio-religious and legal issues in classical history; I've found the marriage contracts in the papyri of particular interest for what they tell us about the socio-legal status of women, for example.

As another example, I discovered a papyrus describing a religious association in the 1st century BC which provides useful information on the socio-cultural background of the first century churches.

This is the introduction to the rules of the association.

‘For good fortune! For health and common salvation and the finest reputation the ordinances given to Dionysius in his sleep were written up giving access into his house to men and women, free people and slaves.’

Dittenberger, ‘Sylloge Inscriptionum Graecarum’, volume 3, pp. 113-114 (3rd ed., 1920).

There's a parallel here with Galatians 3:27 and Colossians 3:11; see Macdonald, ‘Slavery, Sexuality and House Churches: A Reassessment of Colossians 3.18–4.1 in Light of New Research on the Roman Family’, New Testament Studies (53), p. 99 (2007), for discussion.
