  • Re: Aramaic Targums

    +1 to what Denise says. Also, McNamara et al's targurm translations are now in Portfolio+ with Logos 8 which is awesome. Also in Orthodox/Verbum Diamond.

    [quote user="David Thomas"] This reminds me of a story my seminary Greek professor told about a person who transliterated the Greek alphabet over the English translation of John 3:16 and had the verse TATTOOed over his entire back. οὕτως γὰρ ἠγάπησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν

  • Re: OT: Can anyone identify the language of this handwriting (Eph 6:10-12)?

    Correction: my word processor is not having trouble. Re-examing the text now that I solved the mystery, they are writing every word backwards. Seems quite possible whoever wrote this was using some sort of computer assistance. The header is more like T.U.P.N.O.E.H.T.L.L.U.F.R.O.M.R.A.F.O.D.O.G. No wonder it took so long to figure this out. Good riddance

  • Re: OT: Can anyone identify the language of this handwriting (Eph 6:10-12)?

    Also, I still have my doubts if any person would actually write like that. It would be like us writing P.U.T.O.N.T.H.E.F.U.L.L.A.R.M.O.R.O.F.G.O.D. Possibly someone is using the verse to practice calligraphy and only using the first forms (dictionary forms) of the letters.

  • Re: OT: Can anyone identify the language of this handwriting (Eph 6:10-12)?

    Sorry, I wrote Courier where I meant Diwani. Those are the individual letters of the subheading in your scan in the Diwani script, followed by Arabic equivalents and then the Urdu I posted into Google. Technically I did take one Urdu course nearly 20 years ago, but I know next to nothing.

  • Re: OT: Can anyone identify the language of this handwriting (Eph 6:10-12)?

    It is Urdu. Sorry, a lot of the complication came from my word processor which was not handling right-left scripts correctly. After I figured this out (and switched the orders of the letters before combining them into words), I was able to make sense of it in Urdu. Here is the subheading so you can see for confirmation. (Note: I wrote the "~" characters

    [quote user="Reuben Helmuth"] [quote user="Rosie Perera"]It looks like a right-to-left language[/quote] Or more technically an R-L script. This is an important distinction since it highlights that absolutely any language could be written in Arabic script. This is exactly what we'll be doing later this year with the African language I'm working with

  • Re: OT: Can anyone identify the language of this handwriting (Eph 6:10-12)?

    I'm still not sure. It's quite a puzzle. Why are they writing all the letters as standalone letters? Is there an arabic family language where people do that normally instead of joining them? That might be a clue. For example, look at this section: <a href="https://imgbb.com/"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/LCg0Yrp/img1.png" alt="img1" border="0

    [quote user="Darrell Tan"] It looks most like the diwani style letter forms [/quote] It is definitely diwani (i.e. calligraphy). Letters match this font set: https://blogfonts.com/diwani-letter.font while that font I link says "arabic", I wouldn't take that as an accurate identification. whomever posted it there is probably under the false assumption

  • Re: Carl Henry

    It's a monstrous historic achievement for American evangelicals that had a wide impact for at least 20 years after its publication, but is referred to less and less. Primary interest now is probably church history, especially Evangelicals, which makes it difficult for me to justify even at half price. It does not strike me as strange that Crossway is

  • How I use Logos (a walkthrough of my weekly Logos usage with screenshots)

    I decided to do my weekly workflow publicly today in case anyone was interested in how someone else is using Logos. I tried to include many screenshots and keep prose abbreviated. As I conclude at the end of my blog entry: While I ignore many of Logos’ flashy tools, I am greatly indebted to the ones which I do use above. I believe it is great

    I love the important passages tool, but it has a lot of false positives. I look forward to future improvements to help us users selectively filter it down a bit as per our specific workflows.

  • Ancient Literature: Dataset Documentation in need of an update?

    So, I love the Ancient Literature section, but the documentation does not seem to be comprehensive. For example, the tosefta is clearly linked in the Judaica section but doesn't show up in the documentation guide. I'm probably the only person who uses the Ancient Literature: Dataset Documentation as a shopping wishlist, but I'd love to see this updated

  • Heads up on Belief: A Theological Commentary ... bundle on pre-pub

    Just a heads up to folks, I had this pre-ordered a while ago when the bundle had 10 books, looks like they added a book (for free, which is awesome, as it's now 11 at the same price), but as a result my pre-pub order disappeared. I just went and pre-ordered it again, so now it shows up in my orders. Might have only affected me, but I thought I would

  • Re: Just A Thought: Bookaholics?

    I think the key is how your are using the knowledge. To quote one of my blog entries ( https://medium.com/@josiah12345/knowing-god-ee83b4c4f4ac ): As exciting as that sounds, we should be careful to avoid the temptation of Gnosticism. Our goal is not to pursue secret knowledge, to guard and treasure a right path to enlightenment. Instead, we should
