A short while ago I blogged about a couple of ways to hear Bible names pronounced. Then recently while working with the leadership at Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, TN, my good friend Dr. Michael Easley reminded me of the resource That’s Easy for You to Say which also helps with pronunciation.

Find Greek Words in the LXX

This week’s blog is centered on the following question I received from a Logos user: I’m hoping you can help me with a frequent task: finding which Greek words (LXX) are used to translate a particular word in the Hebrew text.

Phrase Searching in Hebrew and Greek

A fellow Logos user recently emailed me this question: I wonder if you can advise me how to search for the phrase “the promise” (found in Acts 1:4 ESV) in both the original languages (Hebrew & Greek).

Gather Message Material in Clippings

Recently in the gym, I watched a trainer utilize a weight machine in an unorthodox fashion to focus on one small muscle. Then, I overheard him tell his client, I like to use this machine in an unconventional way so it does what I need. That’s the sentiment in this week’s blog. In Logos Bible […]

Hear Biblical Names Pronounced
