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 distribution of this word in the New Testament.
To accomplish that, let’s give this a go:
- Open an English Bible with the interlinear option, such as the ESV, to Romans 1:17 (A)
- Right click on the word righteousness (B)
- Select from the right side of the Context menu the Greek lemma (the word with the ring icon) (C)
- Select from the left side of the Context menu Search this resource (D)
- Notice the Search panel opens displaying in “word form” all of the occurrences of this lemma in the New Testament (E)
- Click Graph results on the Search panel’s toolbar (F)
- Notice a Graph Bible Search Results panel opens with “pictures” of the results (G)
- Select at the bottom of the panel a type of graphic such as Pie Chart (H)
- Notice you now have a graphic of the results showing instantly at a glance a high concentration of this lemma in Romans! (I)
Pretty cool eh?
