    I'm not sure what it is you are looking for. You can always do a morphological search using @v, @c or @r as your search terms.

    [quote user="Larry Craig"] So often I get offers for bundles of books, and I might see one or two titles that I want and don't want to spend $100 for the whole thing. There needs to be a way to mark an individual book to a wish list for Logos to notify me if this book becomes available as a single volume. In fact, doing this allows Logos to see what

  • Re: Did The King Have Sex With Esther At First Night?

    [quote user="Peter Lever"] Hi Doug, Thanks for the reply, and is in line with the thinking of this forum and that of mine. While it is highly likely that Esther's experience was in line with Esther 2:14 than not, nothing in the context or text proves this beyond doubt. Mr. Heiser seem to assert that it "is clear" and in doing so seem to go against the

    [quote user="Veli Voipio"]When children learn a language it starts with a concrete audiovisual experience ant they repeat what tey've heard. (particularly the emotional ones, like "oh no") Gradually they decipher the grammatical structure and the abstract ideas, and they use the language all the time to test the results. It would be interesting to develop

    [quote user="Peter Lever"] Checked the new version of FSB. It retains the position that the 'She' in Esther 2:14 refers to Esther and not any virgin in general going to the king . I am not a Hebrew Scholar, and would like to know if FSB is presumptious or the Hebrew Text or context warrants the assertion that it explicitly refers to Esther. I know this

    [quote user="Virgil Buttram"] [quote user="George Somsel"] I agree. I think we should stick to the Apostles' Creed or the Nicene Creed rather than have every church and organization construct its own. [/quote] I also agree. However, while the Nicene is more broadly accepted than the Apostles', the issue of the filioque remains divisive between the West

    [quote user="Jan Krohn"] The Apostolic Creed sets the standard for statements of faith. How to deal with various kinds of sin does not belong in there. Why include homosexuality and abortion, and leave out greed, pride, lust and other things that do a lot more harm to the body of believers? [/quote] I agree. I think we should stick to the Apostles'
