Locate the “One Another” Admonitions

Find one another passages
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.

At a recent Camp Logos, an attendee asked me this question during a break: “I’m doing a study of the ‘one another’s in Paul’s letters. How can I easily find all the verses with this phrase along with the admonitions preceding them like, love, encourage, and so on?”

Even though there are several ways to accomplish the goal, I tried to keep it simple, so here’s what I told him:

  • Open the Search panel by click the magnifying glass icon in the upper left of the program (A)

1

  • Select Bible as the search type (B)
  • Select Pauline Epistles from the verse-range drop down list (C)
  • Select the Bible(s) to search from the drop down list (D)
  • Place within double quotes the phrase one another in the Find box: “one another” (E)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the search results (F)
  • Select Analysis as the view with which to display the results (G)

2

  • Notice Logos creates a spreadsheet with the results (H)
  • Right click on any column header (I)
  • Select at least Reference and Previous Context from the menu (J)

3

  • Click the column header Reference to display the results in canonical order (K)

4

  • Drag the column header Previous Context to the blank area at the top of the spreadsheet (Mac user: hold down the Option key as you drag the header) (L)
  • Notice Logos groups the results according to the Previous Context appearing before the phrase one another (M)

5

  • Right click on an arrow to the left of any search result (N)
  • Select Collapse all (O)

6

You can now easily see all the admonitions appearing before the phrase one another such as: (P)

  • Greet
  • Encourage
  • Be kind to
  • Love
  • etc.

Have fun with this Analysis view. You can arrange the results most any way you like to easily dig deep into the Word!

  1. It is a very good post but it is not accurately titled. I expected something like looking up reflexive verbs in morph search. This, however, is a clever way to see at a glance what all the "one another" admonitions of the Pauline Epistles are.

    The following step does not work on a Mac:

    [Drag the column header Previous Context to the blank area at the top of the spreadsheet (Mac user: hold down the Option key as you drag the header) (L)]

      It took me several tries of clicking Option + Reference but I was finally able to make it happen. It seemed that I was successful when I clicked and held Option first and then clicked on Reference.
