A Logos user recently posted this question at mpseminars.com:
My primary current interest is a thorough, in-depth study of the Greek preposition “pros” (w/accusative). Since it has so many different possible meanings, how do I go about searching the various LXX and NT occurrences – and other available resources – to see what range of alternative meanings might fit in various contexts?
You’ll be very happy to know this type of in-depth original language study is quite easy with Logos Bible Software 4. Here’s one way to tackle this study:
- Choose Guides | Bible Word Study
- When the guide opens type this exact text in the Word box: g:pros (the g: alerts Logos that what follows is a transliteration of a Greek word)
- After typing the text you’ll see a drop down list of Greek words from which you can select the Greek preposition p???
- Click the Go arrow in the Word box or press the Enter key to generate the report
The report contains numerous sections including:
- Translation displaying all the occurrences of this Greek word regardless of how it’s translated in the English Bible
- Septuagint Translation showing all the occurrences in the LXX
- Grammatical Relationships listing the words and cases used with this preposition including the accusative about which our Logos user originally inquired!
