Cross References in the Passage Guide

A fellow Logos user recently made the following inquiry:

I thoroughly enjoy using the Passage Guide and try to take advantage of the wealth of research in each section. I am stumped, however, trying to figure out how the verses in the Cross References section are generated. Can you shed some light on this?

I hope I can. In short, the verses are the inline cross references found in our Bibles for the passage for which the Passage Guide is generated.

Let’s take a look at a specific example:

  • Choose Guides | Passage Guide
  • Type John 10:10 in the Reference box (A)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the report
  • Expand the Cross References section (B)
  • Notice above the horizontal gray line are simple links to cross reference resources such as The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge (C)
  • Below the horizontal gray line are imbedded cross references found in your Bibles for John 10:10 (D)


  • Open, for example, the following Bibles to John 10:10 and compare the imbedded cross references to the verses found in the Cross References section in the Passage Guide:

            – New American Standard Bible (E)


           – English Standard Version (F)


           – The Holman Christian Standard Bible (G)


  • Click the link Open 11 Passages in “Preferred Bible” to display only these verses in a Bible panel (H)


Jumping from one cross reference to another is a favorite way for many people to study the Bible, so this one section in the Passage Guide is a great enhancement for that type of study!

  1. How do you recommend that we utilize your training material with our Logo Software? I am intersted in the actual setup between the two. I’ve tried split screen, two monitors, etc.

    1. Hi Joe,
      I normally use a second monitor to make sure I have plenty of room to watch the training videos and also have my personal layout open for studying. A split screen wouldn’t work well for me because it would all have to be very small to fit and I prefer my text to be a bit larger. Thanks for the question.
