Search for the Men-De Greek Discourse Feature

In a previous blog I showed how to use the reverse interlinear to identify the μέν – δέ construction in the New Testament. Please review that blog to fully understand the significance of this discourse feature that Faithlife scholar-in-residence Dr. Steve Runge refers to as Point-Counterpoint. In today’s blog I’ll show how to execute a […]

An Introduction to the Men-De Greek Discourse Feature

I was recently studying 1 Peter 3:18 which in the ESV ends with: being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit Using the inline interlinear feature I observed at the beginning of the first clause was a Greek word (μέν or men) that wasn’t translated. Then at the beginning of […]

Identify Repeated Words in a Passage

During a passage study we’re taught to look for repeated words because repetition may indicate the presence of an important theme or topic. Since the Bible wasn’t originally written in English, we’re not really concerned with English words occurring more than once, but rather repetition in Hebrew and Greek. Several Logos tools assist with identifying […]

Study a Concept with the Senses Ring

Today’s blog question comes from a participant in our Camp Logos Inductive Webinar: I thoroughly enjoyed the webinar! I especially liked the insights you offered regarding the Hebrew word translated “meditate” in Joshua 1:8. I’ve been doing my own study of the word, but I’m having trouble understanding the numbers under the Senses ring in […]

Search Both Manuscript and Lemma Forms of Words

As you well know the Bible was not written in English, but rather the Old Testament in Hebrew (with a little Aramaic) and the New Testament in Greek. Thus when searching in the Bible, it’s better to search in the original languages of Hebrew and Greek rather than English. You perhaps are wondering though, I […]

Prioritize Individual Volumes from Commentary Sets

Recently I’ve been asked basically the same question from various Logos users. The gist of the question goes like this: I own numerous multi-volume sets of commentaries. In the Library when I drag over a volume from the set to the Prefer these resources list, the entire series gets prioritized. That means that set of […]

Help with the Geographical Context in the Gospels

With the vast number of resources available in the Logos base collections, it’s very easy for a valuable resource to get lost if we’re not careful. A case in point is the Lexham Geographic Commentary on the Gospels available in the standard collections Silver and above. This commentary is a goldmine when it comes to […]

Discover Jesus’ Activities on Earth

If you read this Logos blog on a regular basis you know I’m a big fan of the Bible Browser because I refer to it often. Well, once again I’ll mention it because it answers a user’s question emailed to me: How do I search in Logos 7 for everything that Jesus did while on […]

Execute a Hebrew Lemma “Phrase Search”

Today’s blog is based on a question from a Logos user who is digging deep into the Hebrew text:  I am trying to find every instance in the  OT where the Hebrew words are in an exact sequence.  For instance, if I search in English for “who did not know” in the OT, I get […]

Highlight Biblical References in Lexicons

Just like English words, a lot of Hebrew and Greek words have multiple possible meanings. Many lexicons, therefore,  list all the possibilities for these biblical words. Some Hebrew and Greek dictionaries will also give biblical references where specific definitions occur. In light of this, I recently received this scenario from a Logos user: When looking […]
