Quickly See Relationships between OT and NT Passages

As I train Logos users I often say, There are numerous ways within the software to accomplish a given task.  Explore them all and use the one that works best for you.

That’s certainly true of this blog’s topic: discovering the relationships between Old Testament and New Testament passages.

I’ve written about this before, but in this blog I’ll show how to use the Concordance Guide section to reach that goal:

  • Choose Guides | Bible Reference Guides | Concordance
  • Type an Old Testament reference in the box like Isaiah 61 (A)
  • Press the Enter key to generate results 
  • Rest the cursor on the Concordance section title bar (B)
  • Click Settings on the far right of the bar (C)
  • Select Intertext (D)
  • Notice in the results all the places in the New Testament this chapter is referenced either explicitly or implicitly (E)
  • Type a New Testament reference in the box such as Luke 4 (F)
  • Press the Enter key to generate results
  • Notice now  all of Old Testament passages somehow  referenced in Luke 4 (G)

The Concordance Guide section can be opened individually as we’ve done in this example or it can be added to the Passage Guide or Exegetical Guide or even your own custom Guide.

Regardless of how you access it, I think you can see this feature is a very fast way of seeing relationships between Old Testament and New Testament passages!
