A Logos user recently e-mailed me this question:

I want to study the images of the Word of God. For example: the Word of God is like a sword… How do I accomplish that?

Here’s my response:

Perhaps the most straightforward way is to:

  • Open a topical Bible like Naves Topical Bible (1)
  • Navigate to the article for Word of God (1)
  • Click the plus sign to the right of its tab to open to others resources with a Word of God article like Zondervan Dictionary of Bible Themes (2)
  • Most of these topical resources have a section that lists the analogies with the Word (3)
