There’s a Devil in the Details of the Day of Atonement

Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement described in Leviticus 16, is a central element of the Jewish faith, even though it is not practiced today as it was in ancient times. Although many Christians have heard of the day, most would be startled to learn that a sinister figure lurks in the shadows of Leviticus 16.

How to Use the Concordance to Discover Themes in a Biblical Book

The subject of today’s blog I owe to a pastor-teacher, seasoned Logos user, Camp Logos alumnus, and especially my friend, Dr. Robert Dean. Allow me to set it up for you.

Before doing detailed exegesis of passages in a biblical book, it’s a good idea to get a bird’s-eye view of the book. We should read the book numerous times looking for possible subjects, themes, or important topics covered in the book.

Save Time & Money with the Lexham Bible Guides

There are only so many hours in the day, and every one counts. For pastors, this tension is particularly difficult. According to research conducted by Thom Rainer of Lifeway, pastors spend around 13 hours per week on sermon preparation. With all the other church and ministry responsibilities on their plate, that’s a sizable chunk of time devoted to research and writing. How much of your time and effort would be saved by making the research process easier and more accessible?

Why We Need a New Kind of Hebrew Lexicon

Most of the time you look up a Hebrew word you probably don’t want the extreme depth and complication afforded by the top lexicons.

Hebrews 10:4 asserts, “It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins,” but Leviticus seems to tell a different story. Even casually reading the book, we notice that Israelites who bring proper sacrifices “shall be forgiven” (e.g., Lev 4:20, 26, 31, 35; 5:10, 13, 16, 18). Have we reached an impasse?

A Glimpse of God’s Purposes in Childbirth

Christians follow a God who throughout Scripture claims to understand the experience of giving birth—both to believers and to a whole new creation. So shouldn’t Christians have a robust view of how the birth process shapes women and shows us the heart of our Creator? In this excerpt from Holy Labor: How Childbirth Shapes a Woman’s Soul, Aubry G. Smith draws on her own experiences to show us—expectant mothers, mothers, and those who know them—how birth can illuminate the gospel.
