As a fellow student of Christ our Lord and a user of Logos 4 , I would like to propose that Logos would open itself up to Judaism with more resources, of those resources I would like to suggest Logos to obtaining the “ArtScroll Tanach series” which has commentaries on each book found in the Old Covenant along with the translation of both Hebrew and English. Also it has commentary from Midrashic, Talmudic, and Rabbinic resources.

 

 This would be a great aid for those students who have a love for the Jewish roots of our Christian Faith and would also enlighten the Christian student in Jewish thought. I personally have found the Psalms to be a treasure more above many Christian commentaries out there on the Psalms.  

We as followers of Christ can learn a lot from the Jew and the Jewish culture, that Jesus was raised in, everything we have comes from the Jewish people, and for those who love the language of the Hebrew it would be a great challenge and joy in learning or debating with rabbinic thought. I would also like to recommend the “Orthodox Jewish Bible” used by Judaism, it has been a great value.

SORRY BUT...

Mesorah Publications, Ltd.'s Artscroll Stone Chumash is exclusively published in electronic format by TES (TORAH EDUCATIONAL SOFTWARE). Being that Mesorah Publications, is a  very Traditional Orthodox or Haredi publisher it is highly unlikely, that they would(or could) ever consider allowing Logos to acquire any digital licenses to anything in their catalog.

The Jewish Publication Society which is something like a nondenominational publishing house with in Judaism has allowed Logos and other Christian software companies to acquire some of their works. However, the JPS is most associated with the Conservative(i.e. moderate) and Reform (Progressive) branches of Judaism.

 

Checkout:

Thank you BK, for your suggestions, I already have purchased the Talmud from logos though. You are probably right that a strict orthodox Jewish group would not want anything to do with Logos. However we are Kings kids and perhaps Adonai will show logos favor. (I say that with respect to you) . I mean after all what is the worst they could say? No, at least Logos would be streching out an olive branch in peace and saying to them that we Christians value the revelation that God has given the Jewish people, and we can learn from you.

 still I would ask them at least. the JPS I agree is an excellent source, I completely love their stuff, and beleive that every Christian should have the "Complete Jewish Bible" on logos it is an awsome Bible that Brings the Jewishness of Jesus out and the Jewish culture, thought. I use it side by side with the NASB.

Looking at Artscroll's web site, found a number of digital resources available for Apple's iBooks.  Wonder about Vyrso potential for Logos use ?

Yes, Logos could at least ask Mesorah/ArtScroll, but they may have in the past as others on the forums have felt the same way that you have in wanting more Jewish resources.

Since, Logos has a working relationship with the JPS I think that Logos should try acquiring: The JPS Miqra'ot Gedolot (The Commentator's Bible) series. As well as Hebrew only editions of the Mishnah, Talmuds, Midrash, and Miqra'ot Gedolot.

The Oxford Jewish Study Bible would also make a nice addition to the Logos library.
