    [quote user="DAL"] ... still useful to get a jumpstart during sermon prep or a class. [/quote] This was meant to be part of the appeal of this approach. It's concise and direct. You can get a quick orientation before you decide whether you need to go deeper in your standard commentaries.

    [quote user="Jonathan Bradley"] Does anyone have an idea if an OT version of this is in the works? [/quote] There are discussions about extending this to cover the OT. We're planning on it as likely to happen, but it's not being actively written yet.

  • Re: Why not textual notes in the Lexham English Septuagint 2nd Edition?

    Joseph, one reason we left LES1 as it was in Logos was that LES2 did not retain all of the notes. I can't speak to how decisions were reached at every point about which notes to retain and which to remove for LES2. I can tell you that thousands of notes were re-evaluated for whether they were necessary (and undoubtedly different editors had different

  • Re: Septuagint's awful rendering of Isaiah 9:5/6

    [quote user="Doug Mangum"] Later texts added more titles, correcting toward the longer list in the Masoretic Text. Isaiah is one of the more challenging books to interpret from LXX alongside MT. Sadly, the Isaiah volume of the Septuagint Commentary Series by Ken Penner won't be released for another six months or so. I'm looking forward to it. [/quote

  • Re: SUGGESTION: Lexham Survey of Bible Interpretation

    While not as exhaustive as what you appear to be suggesting (in terms of methods covered), I'd intended the Lexham Methods Series to be a step in this direction. But a more concise, organized survey (following an outline/format similar to what you proposed at the link listed in #3) seems useful. I'm adding this to my "ideas for potential projects" list

    [quote user="Gavin Murphy"] Will the LEB receive a similar update (revision, brackets, italics)? Will the LEB and LES ever be released for Kindle? It'd be nice to read them on there as well. [/quote] 1. If we revise LEB similarly and extensively revise wording and adjust conventions for brackets and italics, it will also be released as a separate resource

    The resource is being written, and I believe the manuscript is nearing completion. After that, it will go through editorial. I have no specific information on when it will be finished or when it will get through editorial and ship.

    [quote user="Gavin Murphy"] The print version seems to drop the text brackets (for text notes) and italics (for implied words). I wonder if the Logos version will as well. [/quote] Yes, the 2nd edition dropped the brackets and italics. The notes were also revised. These changes are primarily why the 1st edition has been left alone and not simply updated

The book of Ezra is found in the Septuagint within the books of 1–2 Esdras. First Esdras (Έσδράς Α) is a Greek version based primarily on 2 Chr 35–36,

  • Re: Precision in the treatment of deuterocanonical/apocrypha/non-canonical texts

    MJ, I apologize on behalf of the LBD editors. We missed that this sentence gave the impression 1 Esdras wasn't part of the LXX. And you're right that we should have been more careful with how we described the material without parallel in the Hebrew Bible (3:1–5:6). "Apocryphal" would have been better than "non-biblical." With LBD we tried to avoid

    Hi Daniel, The Media tool sends the actively selected page to the print dialogue. You can tell which one is selected because there will be an orange dot in the media tool at the top of the selected page and to the left. You will have to send each page to print separately. Another option is downloading all the images of the exercise using the Save As

    In the case of both Daniel and Matthew, I had authors approach me about doing the resource for this series because they were already deep into the research on that particular book. I've been looking for an author for Luke, and I have a few leads. My goal is to line up authors for the rest of the volumes in the New Testament.

    Thanks for pointing these out. I'll make a note of them. In the future, you can use the "report typo" feature in Logos and these will get added to the master list of typos for this resource.

  • Re: Lexham Bible Guide: Gospels

    We're pursuing options for guides on the Gospels. I've talked to someone interested in writing Matthew. The challenge is that the work involved is essentially writing a commentary on the book, even if it's not a comprehensive verse-by-verse commentary. So guides on the Gospels are more of an "active conversation" than an "active project," but they're

    I apologize both for the oversight in linking to the wrong version of Vine's and for forgetting to follow up on the issue when it first came up on the forums. I'll look into what I need to do to get the links updated to the currently available version of the resource.
