A lot of SDA pastors have come on board with Logos lately, so in agreement with Martin Weber I am making a series of 13 free video-tutorials about how to use Logos to go with the Sabbath School lessons for April-June 2015.

So pick up some tips about the Gospel of Luke for your class this sabbath while learning Logos at the same time!

The first video is about 40 minutes, to teach some foundational features of Logos that everyone needs to know. After this the videos will be shorter each week.

Go and watch it now (and subscribe to the Youtube channel for updates):

Great idea. Make sure show them how to get the lesson in the Logos Software. https://faithlife.com/adult-bible-study-guide/documents 

Here is how to compile the lesson in Logos. https://www.logos.com/training/logos4/windows/pbb_3

These videos are great! Thanks so much for sharing. I've already learned a few tricks in how to get more out of Logos 6. I look forward to the other videos that will come out when they do.

Now, if only Logos would support Personal Book syncing with mobile devices, then we could actually have the quarterly itself on our iPads and iPhones to study throughout the week and at church.

I am thankful that at least we can load the quarterly into the Logos 6 desktop program for now, through the method that Lynden shared.

Most pastors and Logos users won't take the step of making the quarterly into a Personal Book. It is a strategy just for the most devoted Logos fans... The best hope is that Faithlife eventually will start publishing the quarterly as a regular Logos book.

I'm glad you got those links in there. Very helpful. More than 50 people have shared the link to Reimar's videos, and what you've posted optimizes the benefit anyone can receive.

Now 550 people "liked" the videos on the NAD Facebook page, and the comments on YouTube have been most encouraging. Reimar has done a huge favor for all of us in the Logos SDA community.

Thanks so much Reimar. You introduction regarding studying actual the Bible texts rather than the topic got my wife on the edge of her seat - she takes a SS class. She was happily following your suggestions all yesterday evening having great fun.

Continuing THANKS.

('Dynamite' has been a regular irritant of mine ever since I "saw the light" when reading Carson).

As a Sabbath School teacher and Bible student I very much appreciate your providing the video instruction on using Logos to study the lesson and prepare for teaching it. You are doing a great job.

Here is Week 5 on "Jesus and the Sabbath". The video is a lot longer than usual, since the Sabbath is important to Adventists...
So it's less Logos and more Bible this week. Hope it is useful.

- Personal rant about how Adventists tend to portray Judaism
- Logos Library Management: how to prioritize and tag resources
- Logos search: How to find a Bible reference in a collection of books
- Bible scholarship: What leading scholars are saying about Judaism, Jesus and Sabbath keeping
- Logos resources about Paul and the Sabbath
