Logos 5: Investigate Biblical Events

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.

For years, with the Bible Facts tool, we’ve been able to study the Bible’s people, places, and things. Now, in Logos 5, we can use Bible Facts to investigate biblical events. Let me show you how:

  • Choose Tools | Bible Facts.
  • Type “Passover” into the reference box (A).
  • Notice the dropdown list, with a variety of events (B).
  • Select “The first Passover is celebrated” to build the report for that event (C).

1-type-passover

The left sidebar displays facts about the event, including:

  • A brief description of the event, including the Scripture where it’s referenced (D)
  • A link to the Timeline dataset (click it to open the Timeline, with the event centered in the window) (E)
  • Links to dictionary articles about the event (F)
  • Biblical references of other places in Scripture where the event is mentioned (G)
  • A list of key players in the event (click a link to build a Biblical People report) (H)
  • The setting where the event took place (click a link to build a Biblical Places report) (I)
  • A list of objects mentioned in the event (click a link to build a Biblical Things report) (J)

2-all-the-data

I don’t know about you, but I think this sidebar is incredible! When I studied an event with print books, I had to flip through lots of resources—encyclopedias, atlases, manners and customs books, and more. Now all that data is localized and organized in one easy-to-use spot.

    My dropdown list is much shorter than yours and does not include the option you selected.
