Uncover New Insights in John 4 with the Feature Crossgrade

You’ve got a library full of fantastic resources. You’re impressed by the powerful tools in Logos 6, but you’re budget is tight. Is there a way to keep your current library and get all the features of Logos 6? There is. It’s called the Feature Crossgrade. And right now, it’s 15% off.

What can the Feature Crossgrade do for your Bible study?

Let me show you by taking a look at John 4.

How did people in the first century worship?

Ever wonder what John meant when he wrote, “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:24)? Start by examining worship as a cultural concept. By running a Passage Guide report, the Cultural Concepts section will populate with the topic “worship”. From that entry you’ll be linked to a Factbook page on worship, where you can drill down for more information on the topic. Expand the Cultural Concepts section to find hand-tagged resources that relate directly to the topic of worship. Here, I’ve pulled up the Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible‘s article on worship.

What is worshiping in spirit and truth?

What does it mean to “worship in spirit and truth”?  Sometimes being removed from the context of the biblical world makes interpreting Scripture difficult. Get help answering tough questions with writings from the early church. The Ancient Literature tool pulls relevant articles from these writings into the Passage Guide. For example, below you’ll see results from St. Ambrose writing on John 4 and the Holy Spirit:

What does John mean by ‘spirit’?

As you work through this verse, you might ask yourself, “What does John mean by ‘spirit’ in this passage?  Run a Bible Word Study on the Greek lemma of the word “spirit” to understand how this term is used throughout the Bible. We’ve also introduced new sections to the Bible Word Study report. The new Sense Section in the Bible Word Study Guide takes you beyond the standard lexicon: discover all the alternate meanings of a word—in English, Greek, or Hebrew—and where they occur, all in one search. See the semantic role (or underlying relationship) a participant has with a verb, even if it’s not mentioned by name. Here’s the report I pulled up on the Greek lemma for pneuma as used in John 4:
