Automatically Mark Up “In Jesus” Phrases

A Logos user and student of the Word recently asked if it’s possible to create a Visual Filter that automatically marks up the “in Jesus” phrases in the New Testament whether the phrase be: in Jesus in Christ in Him in Whom Etc. This is another insightful question and I’m happy to report the answer […]

A Couple of Ways to Study the Divine Council

I have recently been rereading the magnificent book, The Unseen Realm, by Faithlife’s own, Dr. Michael Heiser. If you have yet to order and study this material, I wholeheartedly encourage you to do so!

Add Cross References from a Bible to a Passage List

In response to last week’s blog a fellow Logos user asked the following question: Thanks for the helpful tip, but I have a slightly different scenario. How do I add imbedded cross references in a Bible to a Passage List since the references themselves don’t appear, but only superscript letters? This is a great observation […]

Fit Events in a Timeline

Seeing a biblical or world event in its historical context can certainly aid our understanding of the event. Toward the end of discovering historical context, Logos Bible Software provides the tool appropriately called Timeline.

Display Bible Verses in List Form

Most Bibles are written in paragraph form with verse numbers buried in the paragraphs. That can make finding verse numbers a little challenging as we exegete a passage verse by verse. That’s what prompted a fellow Logs user to email me the following question: I primarily use the KJV and the NKJV in sermon preparation. […]

“Just Looking” with the Bible Browser

Like many Christians during this season, I’ve been rereading the Christmas story in Matthew and Luke. Of course, in Matthew we find the Magi visiting Jesus at some point after his birth. Famously they testified, we saw his star when it rose. Without getting into the specifics of what the star may have been, I […]
