  • Re: an uptodate greek commentary on the prophetic verses

    From the New American Commentary Three things will occur when the day arrives, and all of them together indicate that the physical world as we know it will be destroyed. It is much more difficult, however, to understand the details. We will look at each in turn. First, we are told that the heavens “will disappear with a roar.” The “heavens”

  • Re: an uptodate greek commentary on the prophetic verses

    This is just a sample from the NIV Application Commentary Commentators have offered a series of suggestions explaining this language. (1) The elements are the four basic elements, earth, air, fire, and water. This was a normal meaning for stoicheia . 43 (2) The elements are the heavenly bodies, the sun, moon, and stars. This meaning for stoicheia is

  • Re: an uptodate greek commentary on the prophetic verses

    To give you a sample of commentaries you might want to purchase.... Here is the Baker Exegetical Commentary 3:10 “But the day of the Lord will come” ( Ἥξει δὲ ἡμέρα κυρίου , Hēxei de hēmera kyriou ), says Peter, despite its apparent delay (v. 9). “The day of the Lord”

  • Re: Zondervan's seminary in a box...

    I started a blog series on a "portable M.Div" a while back. I finished blog posts on NT, OT, and Hermeneutics and this post has motivated me to finish what I started. The idea was to provide recommended resources for pastors/missionaries/educated lay people who want to go further, but for whom seminary isn't a realistic option. It was not designed with

    While BDAG is certainly the standard Greek Lexicon, it isn't the first resource I would recommend you purchase. You have to walk before you can run and crawl before you walk. In light of that, take a look at this resource https://www.logos.com/product/40499/greek-for-the-rest-of-us-2nd-ed Mounce is an accomplished Greek professor who has produced a

    Hands down the most comprehensive up to date EC/TE book out there is "Understanding Scientific Theories of Origins: Cosmology, geology, and biology in Christian Perspective. The book was developed for an integrative course taught at Wheaton College. John Walton's chiefly responsible for the theological perspectives. I am very glad to see that Logos

    You are right about the 32 bit limits, but extremely off for 64 bit (which most people should have by now). In short, 64 bit can handle far more than you can probably afford. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/memory/memory-limits-for-windows-releases

  • Re: Disable Citations in Logos 8 iPad app?

    I can't replicate this on the iPad app. I just tried copying from a resource (New Testament Theology by I Howard Marshall) and then pasting in Google Docs. As far as I was aware citations have never been enabled for the web app nor for the ios app. I sure hope citations are coming some day (but with an option for turning it off).

    Thanks so much for providing Logos on various platforms. I love Logos 8 on the desktop, but it is also nice to be able to read books on my iPad and on my Chromebook. There is one feature I keep hoping for on the Web app and was disappointed it didn't make it into version 8 yet and that is citations. Here's hoping that it will make it into 8.? at some

  • Re: where to start with greek/hebrew?

    While the recommendations are spot on if you really and truly want to learn the original languages. These two books will probably give you what you want as far as being able to read commentaires and understand other people's arguments better. Having said that, and I say this as a linguist who is more than aware that in any translation meaning is both

  • Re: The Lost World Series

    I have a great deal of personal respect for Walton. I've known him since he taught at Moody (my wife was in the class that helped him proof his first book). My daughter is now harassing him at Wheaton. My background is that of a missionary with anthropological and linguistic training. I like a lot of what Walton writes. I still don't know where I stand

  • Re: Walton's Book: Ancient Near Eastern Thought and the Old Testament

    If you value Walton’s Insights I think you would find it very helpful. I would see it as very much complementing the other two books. There will be overlap, but in reality whenever ANE cultural elements are referenced in the later two books, you would probably find the largest and deepest treatment in “ANE Thought and the OT.”

  • Re: Greek Imperatives with Visual Filters

    I am seeing the "me" (forgive the transliteration) as a negative particle or negative adverb if you prefer, but then the verb as a present active imperative. Grammatically, the "me" particle isn't really significant...it is just a requirement for a negative command. (Perhaps in some ways similar to our Don't) thus why it is rendered in English (by the

  • Re: Help Me Compare New vs Original Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

    I am not implying I have a problem...just that it really does look like if you have resources (that populate in the Cross Reference section) that they do indeed add to the cross-references included in the translations. I may be wrong, but that's what it looks like is happening to me.

  • Re: Help Me Compare New vs Original Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

    When I ran Philippians 4:4-9 through the Passage Guide, I don't have any top level resources under Cross References and I only have 64 passages mentioned. Now my preferred Bible is the NET so that might explain some of the difference, but I have a hunch that those who have top level Cross Reference resources...they really are contributing to the total
