Was Jesus Born in a Barn?

Christmas of course is a wonderful time of the year as we focus on and celebrate the birth of our Lord. Sometimes, however, if we’re not careful, Christmas cards and carols offer a version of the nativity scene that may or may not be in Scripture. For example, track these “facts” down in the Bible: […]

Logos Can Help with your Christmas Message

The Christmas season is upon us. Please imagine with me we’ve been called upon to teach a class, preach a sermon, or deliver a devotion regarding the birth of Jesus. We know the subject of the message, but that’s all we’ve got. We don’t have the passage, the outline, or even the handout. We need […]

Create a Lectionary Calendar in Favorites

At a recent Camp Logos I was explaining how to use Favorites as an electronic filing cabinet and preaching calendar. A pastor from a liturgical tradition excitedly responded, I get it! I can use Favorites as my lectionary calendar to save things as I do advance preparation. He is 100% correct. Since then I’ve received several […]

Easily Convert Biblical Measurements to Modern Equivalents

Biblical authors often referred to weights, measurements, distances, etc. that certainly were understandable in their context, but are foreign today. For example in Luke 2, 12 year old Jesus is separated from His parents and verse 46 states after 3 days Joseph and Mary find Him in the temple. Why did it take so long […]

Find Old Testament Verses in the New Testament

Years ago as a young Christian I was involved in a discipleship class. I remember very well studying Satan tempting Jesus in Matthew 4. My mentor emphasized how Jesus quoted Deuteronomy to counter the enticements of the enemy. He explained this wasn’t the only time Jesus quoted Scripture, but rather He often used the Old […]

Find Verses in which Peter Addresses Jesus

Throughout the Bible we have conversations or dialog that the Logos team calls Reported Speech. In a previous version of the software the Speakers in the speech were identified, and now in Logos 7 the Addressees have been tagged. Perhaps we think, and rightly so, that we don’t need assistance identifying senders and receivers in […]

Quickly Find the Right Media for your Message

The old adage says a picture is worth a thousand words. Toward that end most churches project images and videos to complement biblical teaching. Recognizing the widespread use of media in churches, Faithlife incorporated new features in Logos 7 to assist in not only developing messages, but also delivering them! This goal is especially true […]

Quickly Open a Lexicon from an English Bible

I jokingly tell participants at Camp Logos that Logos Bible Software will do everything, but wash your dishes! It really is that powerful. From building a Passage Guide report to searching the Library for a concept to in depth original language work, Logos is here to help. What if, however, you don’t need all that […]

Corresponding Notes

Within Logos is a Notes document allowing us to accumulate our research for a topic, passage, sermon, etc. in one location?  Within this document, we create various types of individual notes such as: User-created notes Notes attached to verses Notes attached to selected text For years if we attached a note to a verse, that […]

Multiple Resources

As you probably well know, Logos 7 is here! So I hope you’re discovering and enjoying its many new features. Today I’ll highlight one that has been much anticipated by many Logos users: Multiple Resources. For years within the software we’ve been able to link panels so that they scroll together. For example, we can […]
