Find Verses in which Peter Addresses Jesus

Throughout the Bible we have conversations or dialog that the Logos team calls Reported Speech. In a previous version of the software the Speakers in the speech were identified, and now in Logos 7 the Addressees have been tagged. Perhaps we think, and rightly so, that we don’t need assistance identifying senders and receivers in a conversation. A simple reading of the biblical passage usually reveals that information.

The real value of labeling Speakers and Addressees, however, lies in searching! For example, traditionally we say Peter speaks up to Jesus when others tend to remain silent. In Logos 7 we can now easily and quickly find where Peter speaks to Jesus.

Try this:

  • Open to passage in an interlinear Bible in which Peter is addressing Jesus such as the ESV to Matthew 16:16 (A)
  • Right click on the word God (B)
  • Select from the right side of the context menu Peter SPEAKER (C)
  • Select from the left side of the context menu Search this resource (D)

1m

  • Right click on the word God again (E)
  • Select from the right side of the context menu Jesus ADDRESSEE (F)
  • Select from the left side of the context menu Search this resource (G)

2m

  • Notice there are two search panels open (H)

3-1m

  • Copy and paste the search query from the second one into the other so that the query now looks like this: {Speaker <Person Peter>} {Addressee <Person Jesus>} (I)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the search results (J)

4m

You’re now looking at the verses in the Bible in which Peter is addressing Jesus!
