Logos 5: Add Bible Word Study Verses to a Passage List

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.

A Logos user recently asked me, Morris, how do I get the verses listed in a Bible Word Study report into a Passage List?

This is a very practical question, and I hope the answer will be as well. Let’s use a specific example to discover the solution.

  • Choose Guides | Bible Word Study.
  • Type pray in the Word box (A).
  • Press the Enter key to generate the report.
  • Scroll to the Greek Words section, which displays, in a ring, all the Greek words translated pray in your preferred Bible (B).
  • Click the Greek word in the 9 o’clock position (C).
  • Notice, under the ring, the list of verses, which shows where that Greek word is translated pray in your preferred Bible (D).

1-Bible-Word-Study

The question is how to get those verses into a Passage List. Here’s how:

  • Choose Documents | Passage List.
  • Name the Passage List something like Prayer Verses (E).

2-create-prayer-list

To add one verse at a time to this list:

  • Right-click on a Bible reference under the ring (F).
  • Select Bible [that verse] (G).
  • Select Add to passage list [the specific list]  (H).

3-add-one-verse

  • Notice that one verse is added to the Passage List (I).

4-one-verse-added-to-list

To add all the verses at once:

  • Right-click on a section-title bar, like Greek Words (J).
  • Select Copy (K).

5-add-all-verses

  • Click Add on the Passage List toolbar (L).
  • Select … clipboard (M).

6-add-on-prayer-list

  • Notice that all the verses under the ring, which were copied to the clipboard, are now automatically added to the Passage List! (N).

7-all-verses-added-to-list

This trick works with many sections and verses, such as:

  • Cross-References in the Passage Guide
  • Thematic Outlines in the Sermon Starter Guide
  • Related Verses in the Topic Guide
