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 […]

Searching Chapters Rather Than Verses

Today’s blog centers around a question I periodically answer from users and it was emailed to me again recently. Hopefully this little trick will help you out sometime. The most recent question went something like this: I’m studying Ephesians and made my way to Ephesians 1:22-23 where Paul references Jesus as the head and the […]

The Meaning of Multiple Rings in Bible Word Study

I recently received basically the following scenario from a Logos user: I’m studying a Greek word that is translated “walk” as in Ephesians 4:1. When I generate a Bible Word Study report for the Greek lemma I see all the ways the lemma is translated in my Bible. When I rest the cursor on one […]

“Export” Inline Search Results

A Logos user emailed this question to me: I executed an Inline Search, but how do I export the results? Perhaps you’ve experienced this scenario as well. If so, take heart; there is a solution. Because of the nature of an Inline Search, the results are not directly exportable, so we need to utilize a […]

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! Whether you agree, disagree or just scratch your head while moving through this work, I promise you, your Bible reading will […]

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. Today’s blog is devoted to a small feature within the Timeline which assists us in viewing relevant events in the current […]

Record Verses from a Book

If you’re like I am, as you’re reading a meaty book such as a theology or hermeneutics resource, you’re paying close attention to the biblical passages the author includes in each chapter. Often as we reread the verses, we’re reviewing the content of each chapter. Toward that end, in today’s blog I’ll show you an […]
