Let’s go further together. Read the New Testament with us.
There’s an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Join us on the 5x5x5 reading plan as we go through the New Testament together in a year. It only takes five minutes a day five days a week to read along, and each week we’ll post five prompts to help you dig deeper into the text.

- When putting a sermon together in Logos 8 can I set a default standard for the Bible verses that I send over to Proclaim Presentation? Even when I try to edit my slides in logos sermon it doesn't carry over to Proclaim with the same font size. I certainly don't want to edit my slides twice :)

- I'm in the process of downloading all my resources in Logos/Faithlife into my computer. It's taking way tooooooo long. Is there a way to download everything at once instead of one at a time?
- Is this a new install? Are you MANUALLY downloading one resource at a time at present?
- In a sermon, on a Scripture slide, can I highlight a portion of it?
- Not to the best of my knowledge And this is the case for any slides not just Scripture slides. You can highlight them if you export them to Proclaim but that's a different app!
- If you export them to Power Point as editable Text, you can highlight a portion of the slide, but you have to do it manually after it is exported.
- thanks, that is what I thought, just checking
- Mabey I overlooked it but I can not find the study questions for Luke 9-13 and Luke 14-18 for the 5x5x5 New Testament study plan anywhere.Were they posted?Thank you for your help!
New Testament Reading Plan Week 28: Luke 24–1 Cor 4
- Luke 24:27 and 24:44–46 are some of the most important verses the whole Bible. Why might that be the case? Specifically, how does verse 46 relate the events of Luke and the other Gospels to the story of the Old Testament? How does this change the way you read the Old Testament?
- First Corinthians 1 gives us a clue to why Paul wrote this letter in the first place. (As with most letters in the New Testament, there are clues in the letter itself about why it was written.) As you survey this first chapter, what do you discern are some reasons Paul may have written to the Corinthians?
- First Corinthians 2 holds some important truths for evangelism and salvation. Consider especially verses 10–12 and 14. What are these verses saying? Who ultimately teaches or shows someone the truths of the Bible? How might it affect how you discuss Jesus and the Scriptures with your unbelieving friends and family?
- First Corinthians 3 returns to the theme of division raised in chapter 1. Paul provides some images and metaphors for describing the Church. What are those images? (See especially v. 9 and 17.) How do they communicate unity? What ultimately is the cause of disunity (see v. 3b and 4b)?
- Sometimes we can read Paul’s intense language in the New Testament and find him harsh or cruel. But look at 1 Corinthians 4:14 and following. What is Paul’s motivation and tone here? What does this teach us about the dynamics of love (what tone does love sometimes take, and why)?
New Testament Reading Plan Week 27: Luke 19–23
- Luke 19:11–27 recounts Jesus’ parable of the minas, a parallel to the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14–30. Note how Luke describes the master differently than Matthew does. What does Luke intend for the description to communicate to Zacchaeus and the crowd about Jesus?
- Luke 20 focuses on Jesus’ interactions with religious leaders who try to stump him with hard questions. Instead of falling for the traps, Jesus rebukes the usurping religious leaders and warns his disciples about them. Today, we see much of the same: religious leaders misinterpreting Scripture for their own gain, pastors disqualified because of sin, a lack of humility and love for the sick and destitute. Take a moment to pray for your pastor, your church, and the churches in your community, and ask God to raise up leaders who will obey Jesus’ call for humility and servanthood.
- Unfortunately, many Christians’ faith is lulled to sleep by today’s concerns instead of using each day as an opportunity to prepare themselves for the end of days. Jesus addresses this battle head-on in Luke 21, and he calls us to “stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man” (v. 36). Ask God to give you eagerness and endurance to help you face everyday challenges with eternity in mind. What challenges come to mind as you pray?
- After Jesus’ exhortation to live with eternity in mind in the previous chapter, in Luke 22:14–20 he gives the Church a sacrament to help us live with our minds on both the past (crucifixion) and the future (the wedding feast in Rev 19:6–9). What do you typically think about when you take communion with your church? What do you typically pray about during communion? How could your worship through communion be richer by considering the Church’s past and future?
- For many of us, the Gospel accounts of the crucifixion are easy to read as though we’ve read them a million times (and some of us may be getting close!). Yet our faith hinges on these verses in Luke 23. Ask the Lord to help you read it with fresh eyes, and look for things you’ve never noticed before. For example, you can read the passage and take note of how some people act in unexpected ways, such as the profession of faith of a criminal hanging on a cross next to Jesus, or the centurion’s faith.
