I have appreciated you taking the time to use the Sabbath school lessons as a teaching tool for Logos. I have been a long time customer of Logos but I do find the learning curve to be very high. I notice that many SDA users are ministers and are well educated in theology, Greek, and Hebrew so they have some advantage in that area. I am layperson who teaches a Sabbath school class and your using the lessons to provide a practical approach to using Logos is a great help. My other struggle with Logos is trying to remember everything I learn. Thank you for taking the time to do this and may God bless you in your ministry as well as your family. Angel Yes

May God bless your Sabbath school teaching ministry, Clifford! We need more teachers like you who take the Bible seriously and dig into the material each week. Logos is a great tool for this.

Lesson 7 and 8 were absolutely eye opening. A true aha moment for me. I never understood about the notes and was not using them but now I see how to use them and how to find them. Thank you so very much! God's blessing to you.

I'm glad they were useful, Clifford! I am trying to demonstrate different features of Logos each week, depending on what is suitable to the lesson material.

Does somebody have some suggestions for features in Logos that you are curious or puzzled about and want to see demonstrated? Just let me know, and I will try to incorporate it into the videos in the second half of this quarter.

Week 12 on "Jesus in Jerusalem". We are done with all the major functions of Logos, so this week I am mostly teaching you some interesting facts about this week's passages in Luke - using Logos of course.

- Monday: Why was the temple selling so bad? (See a Logos graphical illustration of the 2nd temple)
- Tuesday: Where Jesus originally got the parable about the vineyard from
- Wednesday: A very cool story about Rabbi Hillel (hidden in a great Logos book by Flusser) that completely changes your view of "render to Caesar and render to God"

Reimar,

Thank you so much for your time and expertise in teaching some of us neophytes some of the ways that using Logos can enhance our study of the SS lesson. As I am following along I noticed that this week I did not get the same result when I used Factbook to search for Court of the Gentiles. For some reason I did not get any media results?  Is there a way to toggle on or off the search parameters? I could not find one. I noticed that your search came up with a map of the temple in the Deluxe Map Set but my search did not. Any ideas? Again I have really enjoyed your thoughts and suggestions regarding the use of Logos, especially for Sabbath School. I use it to help facilitate discussions in a SS class that is currently going through the book of Hebrews. I am in the similar category as Mr. Sneed in regard to my understanding of Greek and Hebrew. The tools with Logos though are very helpful. Thanks again for your thoughtfulness and kindness in providing these tutorials!!!

Alan

Hi Alan

Alan Dacre:
Is there a way to toggle on or off the search parameters? I could not find one.

Not to toggle off the search but you can control whether or not the section is displayed. In the screenshot below I have "closed" two section (the "base" of the triangle at the head of the section is to the left") and "opened" a third (the base of the triangle is at the top)

Do you have the "Media" section closed?

Can you post a screenshot?

Thanks, Graham! Alan, also remember to be online, since Logos is searching images on its server.

Thank you so much for your timely and kind replies! I am familiar with the toggling of the arrows, but , as you will see media is not even displayed? Its as if it did not even search for media... Yes, I was and am online each time. Here is the screenshot

I will try it again and see if I get the same result... still comes up the same.

However, I do not have the Tyndale bible dictionary.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help and interest!

Alan

Hi Alan

Thanks for the screenshot

It shows that you are also missing the "Library Results" section (when compared with my screenshot above)

Exactly which version of Logos SW are you running and on which platform?

You should have a Library result section with at least the Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible showing. Could you run the Topic Guide suggested in "See also" and check to see if it's Media Resources section has contents? If it does, I would suspect that your installation is corrupted.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
