Lexham Hebrew Bible with Morphology

  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2014

The Lexham Hebrew Bible (LHB) is Logos’ own, in-house Hebrew Bible. As Logos branched out from only licensing content from publishers to also creating our own content, we needed a Hebrew Bible that we maintained to hang data on, since third party databases are moving targets and their use in derivative products is sometimes limited by licensing issues.

Because LHB is the Bible on which we base all of our in-house data projects, it has the best integration with the most Logos databases, including the Bible Knowledgebase (Biblical People, Biblical Places, etc.), the participant referent tagging (which tags things like who/what a pronoun refers to, or who the implied subject of a verb is), the Bible Sense Lexicon, the Hebrew Pronunciation audio clips, and more. It is also the Hebrew Bible that Logos’ interlinears and reverse interlinears are aligned to, as well as the Hebrew Discourse project, facilitating better sympathetic highlighting between these texts—highlight a word in one text and see the corresponding words highlighted in the others. LHB is also the database behind the Clause Search feature introduced in Logos 5.

LHB doesn’t replace the third party Hebrew databases: they all make important contributions. BHW, for example, has detailed textual notes comparing its text to Codex Leningradensis (L) and a number of important print editions, and its morphological tagging covers some features not currently tagged in LHB. The Andersen-Forbes Analyzed Text includes quite a bit of tagging for features like genre that are not tagged in LHB, and AFAT ties into a rich syntax database. BHS/SESB includes the critical apparatus from the print BHS that lists textual variants from other manuscripts and early versions. All of these editions complement each other well.

The Lexham English Septuagint (LES)

  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

The Lexham English Septuagint is a new translation of the Septuagint (LXX, the Greek version of the Old Testament) based on Henry Barclay Swete’s edition of the Septuagint, The Old Testament in Greek according to the Septuagint. Based on the work of the popular Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint, the LES provides a literal, readable, and transparent English edition of the Greek Old Testament, which was the edition of the Old Testament writings most popularly used during New Testament times and in the early church.

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 Logos Bible Software. 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.

Douglas Mangum is a contributing editor at Logos Bible Software. He is a PhD candidate in Near Eastern Studies (University of the Free State in South Africa), and capable of translating Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Syriac, Ugaritic, Moabite, Ammonite, Phoenician-Punic, and Philistine Canaanite.

John Dunham is a writer and editor who is passionate about language and translating the biblical story and its implications into contemporary settings.

Jeffrey A. Reimer holds an MA in systematic theology and is a freelance editor based in Newton, Kansas.

Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament

  • Author: Steve Runge
  • Publisher: Logos Research Systems
  • Publication Date: 2008

Our understanding of the Greek New Testament is based almost entirely on English translations, but how would our understanding of the Greek text change if we read it for what it is: as Greek?

The Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament identifies discourse markers and performs complex discourse analysis of the entire New Testament quickly, easily, and accurately, which makes it one of the most advanced tools for studying the Greek text of the New Testament.

The Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament includes the entire Greek text of the New Testament marked up with more than 20 discourse devices, making discourse analysis easier than ever! The Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament comes with a general introduction to discourse grammar, where you’ll find an overview of each discourse device and numerous examples from the Greek text of how various New Testament authors used these devices to communicate. The Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament also includes a built-in, easy-to-use glossary. By simply hovering over a discourse device, the glossary appears, allowing you to quickly access information about the device and about the text you’re looking at.

Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament

  • Editor: W. Hall Harris III
  • Series: Lexham Bible Reference Series (LBRS)
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2010

Following the model of the Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible, the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament presents two levels of interlinear translation. The first is the lexical value, which is a gloss of the lexical or dictionary form of the word. The second is the English literal translation, a contextually sensitive gloss of the inflected form of the word. The difference in these glosses is subtle, but powerful. The first gloss answers the question, “What does this word mean?” The second gloss answers the question, “What does this word mean here?” The Greek text is fully morphologically tagged and includes dictionary forms of words (lemmas) for easy lookup in standard Greek lexical tools.

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.

Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament: SBL Edition

  • Editor: W. Hall Harris III
  • Series: Lexham Bible Reference Series (LBRS)
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2010

The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament: SBL Edition provides the very same interlinear analysis as the edition above, but takes as its starting point The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition for the Greek text. Both editions provide the same helpful morphological analysis and links to Louw and Nida’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament based on Semantic Domains for in-context definitions of every Greek word in the New Testament. The difference between the two editions is only in the textual basis, where the SBLGNT differs from the NA27 in over 540 variation units.

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.

The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition

  • Editor: Michael W. Holmes
  • Publishers: Society of Biblical Literature and Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 517

This new critical text is based on a thorough examination of the major critical editions, apparatuses, and manuscript discoveries and the apparatus provides an accessible and easy to use look at textual variants. The sight of numerous manuscripts listed in any critical apparatus can be overwhelming (regardless of whether it’s that of Alford, Tischendorf, Tregelles, or the even the NA27 and UBS4). Often even seasoned scholars struggle to know how to weigh the evidence before them. This reality becomes clear when we find that even major technical commentaries scarcely do more than list the manuscript evidence with little or no discussion of their significance. But because the SBLGNT’s apparatus cites other critical editions rather than specific manuscripts, users have instant access to how the some of the greatest text-critical minds of the past two centuries have weighed the evidence and their resulting conclusions. The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition becomes even more valuable with the ability to examine its text right beside any of the dozens of Greek editions that you might own in Logos Bible Software.

More information is available at The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition (SBLGNT) product page and also at the SBLGNT website.

Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint (Rahlfs’)

  • Editors: Randall Tan and David A. deSilva
  • Publisher: Lexham Press

The Septuagint (LXX), a translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek, is a valuable complement to the study of the Hebrew Bible. Providing an early witness to the text of the Hebrew Bible, the LXX can also be particularly helpful with understanding difficult Hebrew texts, and is the basis of many of the Old Testament quotations found in the New Testament.

The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint, however, takes advantage of its digital environment to offer multiple layers of English glosses that reflect the complexity of the Greek language structure. The Logos version offers two levels of interlinear translation. The first is the lexical value, which is a gloss of the lexical or dictionary form of the word. The second is the English literal translation, a contextually sensitive gloss of the inflected form of the word. The difference in these glosses is subtle, but powerful. The first gloss answers the question, "What does this word mean?" The second gloss answers the question, "What does this word mean here?"

In addition, the underlying Greek text (Rahlf’s edition of the LXX) is fully morphologically tagged, including dictionary forms of words (lemmas) for easy lookup in standard Greek lexical tools.

Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible (LHI)

  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2004

The Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible is designed for electronic reference and based on the latest linguistic research. It is being created especially for Logos Bible Software and is a Logos exclusive.

Rather than present a single gloss for each Hebrew word, the interlinear takes advantage of the digital medium to offer multiple layers of English glosses that reflect the complexity of biblical Hebrew language structure. It also includes a wide range of annotations.

This approach benefits all users, whatever their level of Hebrew, as they have access to data that gives a more nuanced look at the Hebrew text.

 . . . the Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear Bible will be a helpful tool that’s based on current research into discourse analysis, can be used intuitively, and corresponds to the way people actually read the text.

Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint: H.B. Swete Edition

  • General Editor: Randall Tan
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012

The Septuagint (LXX), the Greek translation of the Old Testament, is an invaluable resource for study of the Hebrew Bible and early Christian literature. Providing an early witness to the text of the Old Testament, the LXX can be particularly helpful in understanding difficult Hebrew texts. And as the Bible of the early Church, it is the basis of many Old Testament quotations found in the New Testament. In addition to the Greek translations of the Hebrew canon, the LXX also includes important deutero-canonical writings such as the Maccabees, Sirach and additions to Esther and Daniel, among others.

The Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint: H. B. Swete Edition takes advantage of its digital environment to offer multiple layers of linguistic information that reflect the complexity of Greek. Along with the morphology and lemma levels, this new edition offers two levels of interlinear translation: the lexical value, which is a concise definition as it would be found in a lexicon; and the English literal translation, a contextually sensitive gloss of the inflected form of the word. The difference in these glosses is subtle, but powerful. The first gloss answers the question, “What is the typical meaning of this word?” The second gloss answers the question, “What does the Greek mean in this context?”

Unlike other Greek Septuagints, this special H. B. Swete version contains some of the oldest available manuscripts, including Codexes Vaticanus, Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, and includes portions of the Odes, Psalms of Solomon, and Enoch.

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.

Augustine versus Luther on Sin, Sexuality, and Salvation

Augustine of Hippo and Martin Luther had absolutely foundational influences over the thought, practice, and development of Christian theology. Yet somehow the work of these two theological giants has produced out-of-balance perspectives within Protestantism on marriage, sexuality, and singleness—thanks to Augustine’s view of sexuality as shameful and Luther’s exaltation of marriage as the sure way to holiness.

Augustine versus Luther on Sin, Sexuality, and Salvation analyzes how the theologians’ views on sin and salvation affected their divergent perspectives on marriage and sexuality. Their drastically different conclusions are still evident in Christian attitudes toward marriage and singleness today.

Concealment or Revelation? The Messianic Secret in Mark

  • Author: John H. Morris Jr.

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

In Concealment or Revelation?, author John H. Morris Jr. analyzes the critical scholarship on the messianic secret in Mark’s Gospel. Focusing on the Gospel in its first-century context, Morris illustrates why Mark did not have to invent a “messianic secret” to explain Jesus’ behavior. Citing primary Jewish and Roman sources and using a social-science model, he explains how the messianic secret was a representation of normal first-century behavior by Jesus used in an effort to spread his reputation while preventing his enemies from disseminating an incorrect reputation of him.

Concealment or Revelation? provides a detailed exegesis of selected passages in Mark 1–9 dealing with the classic messianic secret, demonstrates that Jesus’ behavior was normal first-century behavior in Roman and Jewish culture, and explains why Jesus alternated between silence and revelation in reference to his messianic mission. Bridging the gap between first-century and contemporary culture, it offers fresh insight on the Gospel of Mark in its original context. This volume also includes an annotated bibliography of New Testament–era name-calling and insults.

John H. Morris Jr. has a PhD in New Testament from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, an MDiv in biblical languages, and a ThM. He is a professor of biblical studies at Point University in West Point, Georgia. He has contributed to the textual critical analysis for the New International Greek New Testament Commentary series, contributed to Lexham Bible Dictionary and Leaven, and presented papers at Evangelical Theological Society.

The Collision of Early Christianity and Judaism in Revelation 11 is an academic essay that provides an in-depth exegesis of Revelation 11:1–13. It contains solid arguments for the connection of the churches in Smyrna and Philadelphia and the two witnesses in Chapter 11 and reveals the conflict between the Christian churches and Jewish synagogues. Part one presents historical background, part two discusses the role of the temple in Jewish identity, and part three interprets the narrative of the two witnesses. This volume will benefit readers interested in issues surrounding the relationship between the Christian and Jewish communities in the late first century.

The End of the Matter: Understanding the Epilogue of Ecclesiastes

  • Author: Miles Custis
  • Publisher: Lexham Press
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: iv, 106

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

One of the most debated subjects in Ecclesiastes studies is the purpose of its epilogue (ch. 12:9–14). Many scholars view the epilogue as a later addition that attempts to tone down the unorthodox message of the book. They tend to overlook the content of the concluding passage and in turn miss out on its significance.

The End of the Matter: Understanding the Epilogue of Ecclesiastes brings a fresh perspective to the epilogue of Ecclesiastes. In it, author Miles Custis puts forth the theory that Ecclesiastes was written by one man who used two distinct voices: the voice of Qohelet and the voice of the epilogist. In regards to this theory, Custis examines the criticism surrounding the relationship between the body of Ecclesiastes and the epilogue. He shows how the message of the epilogue fits with the body of Ecclesiastes, and as a result, brings readers a deeper understanding of the meaning, structure, and purpose of Ecclesiastes’ last verses.

Miles Custis holds an MA in biblical studies from Trinity Western University where he specialized in wisdom literature. He has contributed to Bible Study Magazine and Lexham Bible Dictionary. He currently works as a contributing editor for Logos Bible Software.

The Glory of God: A Biblical Theology

God’s glory is one of the most important concepts in the Bible, yet it remains abstract and ambiguous to most Christians. Can we ever understand such glory?

In The Glory of God: A Biblical Theology, Philippe Viguier examines the eight types of glory described in the Old and New Testaments and presents his findings in an approachable manner that is relevant to daily Christian life. A biblical theology that is both practical and purposeful, The Glory of God offers systematic analysis with exegesis delving into the original Greek and Hebrew. Once God’s glory is biblically expounded and revealed, Viguier says, the Christian can’t mistake the divine call for unity and reflection or the incomparable goodness, beauty, and praise-worthiness of God as king, savior, judge, and creator.

Philippe Paul-Luc Viguier completed his MDiv at The Master’s Seminary in Sun Valley, California. He currently serves as the college pastor at Lake Hills Community Church in Castaic, California.

The Resurrected Servant in Isaiah

  • Author: John D. Barry

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

The servant in Isaiah 52 and 53 is one of the most intriguing figures in the prophetic Scriptures. The questions are many, the interpretations are diverse, and the answers always seem to be different. Some have looked to this text in search of Jesus, others to reclaim Israel’s role in the world, and some to find a historical explanation for this prophetic text that seems to have no precedence.

Many have stood in awe of the prophecy about the servant in Isaiah 52:13–53:12—either because of its lack of theological precedence in ancient literature, or because of the parallels between the servant and the portrayal of Jesus of Nazareth in the Gospels.

However, in the past 30 years, there has been little examination of the servant’s possible resurrection in Isaiah 53:10–12. Harry M. Orlinsky and R.N. Whybray’s interpretations, in particular, have been cited as disproving the resurrection in Isaiah 53. Despite Orlinsky’s and Whybray’s interpretations being cited multiple times as as evidence again resurrection in Isaiah 53:10–12, participant reference in discourse analysis, a method pioneered since their works were written, suggests otherwise. The Resurrected Servant in Isaiah reevaluates the scholarly consensus about the resurrected servant and proposes a new interpretation.

John Barry’s exegesis of Isaiah 52:13–53:12, a crucial text for Christian apologetics, is brilliant: well researched and cogently argued. Step by step he convincingly demonstrates that the prophet proclaims to the Babylonian exiles an individual servant who offers his life as a sin offering and is raised from the dead. His book will be my first port of call when studying this great text.
