Logos 4: Use a Passage in Biblical Things

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.

Biblical Things in Logos 4 (Tools | Biblical Things) displays images from your library related to things or objects such as sheep, cornerstone, etc. Image you’re studying a passage like Ephesians 6 in which Paul mentioned a lot of things as he discussed the armor of God. You may get tired of typing each individual word into the report window. Here’s a tip to help out:

  • Open a Bible to a passage with numerous objects such as Ephesians 6
  • Choose Tools | Biblical Things
  • Type Eph 6 in the Thing box
  • Notice the drop down list with all of the things from the passage displayed, like sword, arrow, and helmet
  • Click a word in the list to generate the report for that object

Just type Eph 6 in the box again to build a report for another item!

    Following your steps, I can’t get this feature to work in Logos 4.2 SR-2. It brings up the Tools | Biblical Things window but does not accept Eph 6 in the box, so there never is a drop down list.

  2. When I did this it did not work for me?

  3. Hi Larry,
    When you type Eph 6, a drop down list should automatically appear with various objects. You are not actually doing a search, rather, you are using Eph 6 as a filter right there within the search box. The drop down then only shows the things that appear in in the section of Scripture you are studying.
    My test returns a list of: mouth, sword, ground, body, blood, and five other things.
