  • Re: Suggestion: Legacy Standard Bible

    I frankly don't see what advantage there is to the LSB over the NASB95. I like the NASB for its literalness, but the deal-clincher is that it has marginal notes that amp up the literalness even more. For instance, while the NASB and the LSB both have "lights" in Gen. 1:14, the NASB has "luminaries" in the margin, which i much prefer simply because it

    [quote user="Olli-Pekka Ylisuutari"] it is true that of Himself God does not do evil things but uses instrumental means . [/quote] This sounds like someone saying, "I didn't kill him; the gun killed him." In other words, "I'm not culpable...the instrument I used is culpable."

  • Re: Another request for information: oral Torah vs. human tradition

    I think the conclusion of oral torah being "of man" is best sourced from the rabbinic explanation regarding where their authority comes from. I've discussed this in the past here, so I will just give a Cliff's Notes version. The Talmud says that "as it is written" people should "follow after a multitude" in matters concerning the law. The word "multitude

    My original subject title for this post was "Why two different searches for apparently same word?" I actually answered that question in the process of creating the pics below (click them if they're blurry), but I now wish to answer the question in the current title. When I did a search on "ingathering" in Exo. 23:16NASB... ... ...which yielded this

    I'm finally pushing through Barr's The Semantics of Biblical Hebrew . I've started it a few times but never stuck it out. Ironic, since I'm pretty sure I'm the one who first asked for it to be added to Logos. Anyway, there is a citation that he frequently mentions, Theological Wordbook of the New Testament (TWNT). In the Abbreviations section, it is

    Lol...this "belief" sounds like the thesis of a dissertation or the equivalent. Kudos Graham for having the ear/eye for searching this. Almost makes me wonder if the OP is chumming the water? How does one come to "believe" something that is so ivory tower confabulated and not know where the idea came from?

  • Copied text STILL gets pasted into notes in a larger font size than text typed in note...WHY????????

    I first complained about this problem months ago--almost a year ago. This post is based on the Mobile platform, but I'm pretty sure the same issue exists in the desktop version. As the pic below shows clearly, text typed in a note is one size while text pasted in from any Logos resource is 1-3 font sizes larger. This is ridiculous. PLEASE make whatever

  • Re: We/us and they/them mutually exchanged for same group?

    It's quite common for pronouns to get switched up in some parts of Scripture, particularly in the prophets and psalms. The examples you gave demonstrate the concept, but as Dave pointed out, it is hard to look just at an English translation to confirm an actual example. Better to consult the OLs. I don't have any examples committed to memory, but I
