Logos 4: Find OT Verses in the NT

mp|seminars TipsToday’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars.

A Logos user recently emailed this question to me:

If I wanted to find out where an O.T. book is quoted in the N.T. could it be done? For example, how would I find out all the places in the N.T. where any verse from Habakkuk is quoted?

You’ll be happy to know, a Logos resource supplies all the information so you don’t even have to conduct a search:

  • Open the Library
  • Type this in the Library’s Find box: type:harmony
  • Open the resource: OT Quotations and Allusions in the NT
  • Choose the panel menu on the resource
  • Select Show table of contents
  • Click a book of the Bible, like Habakkuk, in the table of contents

The resource displays the OT passage along with where it’s mentioned in the NT!

Comments

  1. Can I do this on Logos for iPhone?

  2. Another great resource is the “Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament.” Goes into lots of details not only about how the NT makes use of the OT, but how those passages where used by others during NT times.

  3. James Porter says:

    Mr. Proctor
    Is it possible to find out more about certain characters in the bible such as the women with the issue of blood or about the women caught in the very act of adultry?
    Thank you Elder James M. Porter

  4. It should not be too difficult in programming to develop a more user-friendly way of handling issues like the use of the OT in the NT. Perhaps to begin by concentrating on the more frequently raised issues along these lines.

  5. > how would a person know to type harmony?

    You can also type other words, such as “quotations”, it need not be just one specific word. Knowing your books is a good help! So then you know what resources you have, and what they might contain, and that is all that is really needed.
