Logos 5: See the Names and Titles of God in Bible Facts

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

I’ve been asked several times about an effective way to locate all the names, titles, or designations of God or Jesus or the Holy Spirit. I’m very pleased to tell you that, in Logos 5, that task is much easier. Try this suggestion (keeping in mind that this feature does not appear in all Logos base packages):

  • Choose Tools | Bible Facts.
  • Type the word God in the reference box. (A)
  • Select God from the drop down list, or if it’s already selected, just press the Enter key to generate the report.
  • Wait patiently just a few seconds—this is an extensive search.
  • Note in the sidebar a section called REFERRED TO AS. (B)
  • Scroll through this section, taking note of the various names, titles, etc., of God used throughout the Bible!

After enjoying this list of verses, type Jesus or Holy Spirit in the box to see their designations as well.

A big thank-you goes out to the content innovation team at Logos, who manually and painstakingly tagged the Bible with all this data!

    Thank you for the helps and hints on blog.logos.com. Always good :-)

    This time however: When I do as you say I don’t have a section “referred to as”. Just “Dictionaries” “Lemmas” and “See also”

    I don’t have a section B which lists “referred to as” what am I not doing I should be doing?

    Thanks

  3. I searched several times couldn’t get the same results. I’ve logos 5,but not a section called “referred as”. I don’t know if something is missing in my Bible facts.

  4. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I am currently teaching a very rigorous OT Survey, and one of the things I am having my class do is mark every NEW occurrence of the names of God. It has been a huge blessing to us, seeing how God, “El”, becomes so very personal to His people throughout His Word. This feature alone was worth my upgrade to Logos 5.

    It would be helpful to know which base packages this tip works for. : )

  6. I have the Bronze package and although I have followed the above instructions also cannot locate the ‘Referred to as’ section. Is this only available in higher packages?

  7. Thank you this was really helpful
