- This is a beautiful commentary on the Gospel according to St. Matthew. I like to read/ponder a section or two at a time, perhaps only covering a half dozen verses. Read the intro of the commentary to learn about the significance of the Aleph between the sections. :)
- As a member of the "Jesus loves you. Here, color this!" generation of CCD, I am finding Verbum to be a powerful tool for helping me to grasp the teachings of the Church. I find myself falling in love with the Catholic faith as I discover more of the richness of her history, and as I am exposed to ever more of the writings of The Saints, Doctors, and Church Fathers. The ability of Verbum Scripture Study to explore the original languages of the Bible has helped me to have a more nuanced understanding of the Scriptures, and has opened my eyes to some of the powerful connections between different parts of the Bible, connections which might be very hard to perceive if working solely with English translations. The availability of the Septuagint and its English translations helps me to explore the Greek version of the Jewish Bible, which has helped me to contextualize some of the OT quotations in the NT. Logos is adding more titles all the time, and has A+ customer service. Go for it!
- I agree with you. I was a poorly catechized 70s kid subject to too much burlap and Kum Ba Ya. Logos/Verbum is helping to remediate my deficiencies and perhaps even beyond that, make me a bit of an amateur Scripture scholar. :-)
