Create a “Lesson Template”

If you’re a preacher, teacher, or Bible study leader you probably have a fairly consistent approach to study and/or preparation. In other words, you may go through the same steps of lesson development each week. For example, I personally follow my methodology called the I-Beam of Message Building. Toward that end, I’ve been asked numerous […]

Inline Searching with Match All Word Forms

At a recent Camp Logos an attendee asked this question: Can we execute a Match all word forms search with an Inline search? First, I’ll give a little explanation. On the Search panel menu resides the option to Match all word forms.  With this feature selected, a search for faith also finds faithful, faithfulness, etc. […]

Save a Concordance Resource

One of my favorite Logos 7 features is the Concordance which allows us to conduct a word count, develop a lemma list, and much more. As I’m sure you’ve discovered, a few minutes are necessary the first time we create a Concordance report for an interlinear Bible. And since only a select number of resources […]

Open Logos the Way It Closed

I recently received this question from a fellow Logos user: I’m often in the midst of my study when I have to close Logos to move on to other tasks for the day. Is there a way to open the program to the desktop arrangement I had when I closed the program? The answer is […]

Locate Hymns Based on Author, Title, or Lyrics

Last week’s blog answered a user’s question on how to find hymns based on a Scripture reference. Today, using a feature called field searching, we’ll locate hymns written by a specific author, with a desired title, or containing certain words. If you’re looking for a hymn, give this a go: Click the Search icon in […]

Locate Hymns Based on a Passage

My mentor years ago told me that outside of the Bible, one of the most important books to have in my library is a good hymnal (or 2 or 3 or more!). In light of that I was thrilled to recently receive the following question from a fellow Logos user: Very often hymns are based […]

Graph Bible Search Results

The old adage says a picture is worth a thousand words. Pictures many times communicate at a glance what words cannot. That can also be true of Logos searching. Imagine this scenario: we’re reading about righteousness in Romans 1:17. After searching for the Greek lemma translated righteousness, we want to see a graphic showing the […]

Add the Same Note to Different Verses

Last week’s blog focused on Notes and we’ll continue that theme this week. Sometimes as we’re studying the Bible, the insights we gain for one passage apply equally to another. For example, as we study the results of Spirit fullness in Ephesians 5:18-22 we realize they’re basically the results of the word dwelling in us […]

Move a Note from One File to Another

If you’ve been to Camp Logos, you know I’m a big cheerleader for saving our research in Notes documents. I believe this is a convenient and secure way to archive our insights into Scripture. In light of that, I was thrilled to receive the following question from a fellow Logos user: A few months ago […]

Quickly Find Eating of Meals in the New Testament

A fellow Logos user recently posted the following question on a Logos blog: Is there a way to find every time there is eating / a meal in the New Testament?  I think there is a lot of activity that goes on around a table or just eating. With the Bible Sense Lexicon the answer […]
