Search Sermons by Venue

A Logos user presented the following scenario to me: I’m a traveling itinerate preacher speaking in various churches, but do revisit the same churches periodically. If I start using the Sermon Editor to archive my messages, is there a way to search the files by location so I don’t preach the same sermon in the […]

Group Bible Search Results by Book

I recently received the following email: Maybe I’m missing something, but I need a quick way to get the number of occurrences of a phrase by book. Another very practical question from a Logos user! Even though different ways exist to accomplish the goal, this blog focuses on the Analysis view of Bible Search results: […]

Find Words Unique to a Book in the Bible

A fellow Logos user recently emailed me an excellent question: Is there a way to find the words in a particular NT book (e.g. Philippians) that are unique to it?  In other words, they are not used elsewhere in the NT? Even though at first glance the question sounds like a huge task, actually it’s […]

Read OT Sources for NT Verses

I’m often asked how to easily locate Old Testament passages quoted in the New Testament. I’ve written about this before, but in this blog I’ll show you yet another way to read OT sources right along with NT passages. Open any Bible Type Old Testament Quotes in the Command box (A) Select Open Old Testament […]

Easily Locate Paul’s Prayers

Through the years as I’ve taught discipleship and spiritual formation classes, I’ve encouraged people to pray Paul’s prayers for others and themselves. For example, Ephesians 3:14-19 is one of my favorites in which Paul prays that Christ will dwell in the hearts of Christians. We’ll save the study of dwell for another day. Today, however, […]

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 […]
