Lexham English Bible (LEB)

  • Editors: W. Hall Harris III, Elliot Ritzema, Rick Brannan, Douglas Mangum, John Dunham, Jeffrey A. Reimer, and Micah Wierenga
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2010, 2012

The LEB is a new translation of the Bible into English. It clearly communicates the meaning of the original languages and gives you a clear English translation, and shows you how it gets there. It is one of the components in a suite of resources from Lexham Press which connect the original language texts to formal translations.

The LEB achieves an unparalleled level of transparency because the LEB has as its starting point the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament. It makes extensive use of the most up-to-date lexical reference works available, Frederick Danker’s A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature (BDAG) and Louw and Nida’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament based on Semantic Domains.

The LEB closely follows the original while remaining readable in contemporary English. The style of the translation is relatively literal, which stems from the desire to have the English translation correspond transparently to the original language text. The translators attempt—within these constraints—to produce a clear and readable English translation instead of a woodenly literal one.

W. Hall Harris III is professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He has worked as editor of the New English translation—Novum Testamentum Graece New Testament and served as project director and managing editor of the NET Bible.

Elliot Ritzema is an editor at Lexham Press. He has an MDiv from Regent College and served as a copy editing intern at the Los Angeles Times. Previously, he was an editor of—and frequent contributor to—the Et Cetera.

Rick Brannan is Information Architect for Logos Bible Software. In his role at Logos, he is responsible for linguistic databases of the Greek New Testament, the Septuagint, and other Greek writings of the Hellenistic era.

Lexham Bible Guide: Romans

  • Author: Derek R. Brown
  • Editor: Douglas Mangum
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Estimated Publication Date: July 16, 2014

Among the apostles, God’s redemptive work appears most dramatically in the life of Paul. Redeemed and transformed, Paul becomes an apostle who not only established churches throughout the ancient world, but who was also used by God to author much of what would become the New Testament. Understanding the exegetical and theological issues of Paul’s letters represents an important part of any Christian’s study. The Lexham Bible Guides prepare you to submerse yourself in the depths of God’s Word like you’ve never done before.

The Lexham Bible Guides are complete Bible guides reimagined for the digital age: a hybrid between a handbook-type commentary and an annotated bibliography, built on technological resources available only in Logos. These guides are written from the ground up to take full advantage of Logos’ platform. The interconnectivity of the Lexham Bible Guides within the Logos library provides you with relevant, curated content at a click, produced by professional researchers. There’s no need to flip through pages, pore over commentaries, or search through dictionaries. You get access to the best content available—instantly.

… this is really an excellent tool. It is useful, in my view, not only for beginning students of the Bible but for those wishing to introduce various biblical texts to Sunday School classes, Bible study groups, and small group discussions. This series does a very fine job of introducing interested persons to many of the letters of Paul and divulging to them just some of the treasures contained therein. It is a series from faith to faith: by people of faith for people of faith. Consequently, unlike so many volumes published these days, they’re actually functional.

Ruth: Hope for the Marginalized

Ruth was an outcast in Israelite society. As a widow and a Moabite, she was considered the least of God’s people. Yet God drew her from the fringe of society and incorporated her into both the community of Israel and his plan of salvation. In Ruth, we find a story of love, loyalty, and compassion. And we see how God works through ordinary people to achieve his great purposes.

Who do you turn to in good times and bad? In the Psalms, we find an ancient people worshiping God in all types of situations—praise, anger, thankfulness, frustration, and sadness. Their cries and praises abandon facades. The Psalms reflect genuine worship and encourage us to turn to God in any situation.

Jonah was a rebel prophet. When God wanted him to preach a message of hope to the city of Nineveh, Jonah fled in the opposite direction. His story of failure shows us the depths of God’s mercy—both to the prophet and to an undeserving people—and challenges us to be ambassadors of that mercy.

Malachi: Easy Doesn’t Change the World

So often we affirm God’s love until things go wrong. In anger, anxiety, or pain, we doubt his goodness or involvement in our lives. Like the Israelites of Malachi’s day, we cry out, “How have you loved us?” The words of the prophet Malachi both comfort us with God’s love and challenge us to reciprocate that love—even in dark times. Malachi shows us that we need a Savior.

Does your life reflect the work of Christ? Do your relationships with others display his love? In Ephesians, Paul calls us to a life transformed by Christ’s work.

At some point, everyone experiences real suffering—pain, disappointment, sickness, abuse. Paul’s message to the Colossian church—and to us—is that suffering isn’t senseless or worthless.

It’s easy to get tangled up in the cares of this world and forget what’s important in life. When we lose sight of the big picture, James reminds us what truly matters: simply the gospel. He challenges us to be “doers of the Word, and not hearers only.” The gospel should define how we think, feel, and act.

  • Publication Date: 2014

Immerse yourself in the season of Lent with 40 Days to the Cross. Reflect on the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ with writings from great thinkers—including early Church Fathers, medieval writers and influential pastors. This devotional will guide you through a time of confession, reading, and reflection during the 40 days leading to Easter.

Christians from many church traditions have marked the occasion of Jesus’ death and resurrection by a period of fasting known as Lent. The traditional calendar for Lent goes from Ash Wednesday to Easter, with exceptions for Sundays (always a feast day). 40 Days to the Cross will help you contemplate our shared experience of Jesus’ death and resurrection—the very center of our faith.

In his letter to the church of Ephesus, the Apostle Paul defines our identity and security in Christ. He tells us in detail of the real benefits we have as daughters of God. He shows how these benefits equip us to reclaim our identity in Christ. And he draws a straight line from all these truths to the heart of our insecurities today.

This study of Ephesians walks straight through the Scriptures and shows how each truth presented is particularly applicable to the struggles we face as women at every stage of life.

To Love God and to Love Others: A Devotional Commentary on James

  • Author: William Varner

  • Pages: 35

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

One of the most beloved letters in all the New Testament is the book of James. In a letter filled with practical advice, James seeks to guide the reader to a life of holy living and devotion to Jesus Christ.

In his commentary To Love God and to Love Others: A Devotional Commentary on James, William Varner provides devotional commentary on the letter of James. After each key section of James, Dr. Varner offers spiritual insights and devotional commentary on the text of James. Concluding every section is prayer that helps the reader apply the text of James to their daily lives.

James is to the New Testament what Proverbs is to the Old. It is wisdom literature, extolling the virtues of spiritual understanding while imparting the soul and substance of wisdom in memorable, bite-size maxims. But James is much more than just a collection of pithy sayings. Running through the epistle are motifs and patterns that tie it all together in a wonderful way. Dr. Varner’s masterful exposition of this important book will help you discern those themes—and that in turn will give you a new, intensely practical, appreciation for the depth and value of biblical wisdom.

—John MacArthur, pastor, Grace Community Church

He also pastors the Sojourners Fellowship at Grace Community Church. Dr. Varner is the author of The Book of James—A New Perspective: A Linguistic Commentary Applying Discourse Analysis.
