Q3 What are the main lessons in the Bible?

‎‎‎The Bible’s main lessons are

  1. what we are to believe about God
  2. and what God requires of us. (2 Tim. 1:13, 2 Tim. 3:16).

Follow up discussion questions:

  • ‎Why is the Bible the best place to learn what is true about God?
  • ‎Why is it important to know what God requires of us?

Comment: Here, I’ve reworded the question by changing “Principally teach” to “main lessons”. The answer likewise is updated to fit the wording. The follow up discussion questions were the most helpful in teaching this time around. Just a few weeks prior we had spent some time talking about General revelation (God in nature) and Special Revelation (God in the Bible) so that they already had a decent grasp of the difference and the extent that we can properly interpret nature in light of scripture.


Logos Bible Software Launches Vyrso: Watch Out Amazon

Logos Bible Software’s not resting on their laurels with Logos 4, Logos 4 Mac, their iPhone and iPad applications, Biblia.com, and the soon-to-be-released Proclaim. Logos is launching yet another new service coming soon. It’s called Vyrso, and it’s a new way for users to purchase and enjoy reading Christian eBooks.

Vyrso is a new, online Christian eBook store that allows people to purchase their favorite Christian eBooks, and read them anywhere, from the specially-created Vyrso apps on mobile devices, to Biblia.com, to even Logos 4 and the Logos mobile apps. It’s the perfect place to get your hands on your favorite Christian living and Christian general-reading titles.

I can see Vyrso easily taking on competing Bible bookstore sites that offer Christian titles in electronic form (in print form as well), and while I’m sure it probably won’t directly take on Amazon (although I know I said “Watch out Amazon” in my title), for those of us who’ve used Amazon as a source for reading Christian titles, if Vyrso begins to offer a better selection and more flexibility by being integrated into Logos, I can see it lulling over some users to this new platform.
