What’s New in Logos Now 6.8

New_Logos Now blog image-1

To get the full Logos experience, nothing beats Logos Now. And with the latest release, one of the features we’ve most been looking forward to is shipping at last: The New Testament Use of the Old Testament interactive. How did New Testament writers like Paul, Luke, and Matthew understand the Old Testament, and how did they use it to assert, defend, and strengthen the Christian faith? This new interactive will help you discover the answer to those questions—and many others—for yourself.

But that’s not all we have for you in the latest Logos Now release. Keep reading to discover the other new features and datasets our team has created to help you take your Bible study further.

Here’s what’s new in Logos Now 6.8

New Testament Use of the Old Testament interactive

The New Testament Use of the Old Testament interactive lets you explore how New Testament authors cite, quote, allude to, or echo Old Testament texts. Display both Old Testament and New Testament passages in multiple versions for quick comparison—including the Hebrew or Greek Old Testament and the Greek New Testament. Find the passage you’re looking for using faceted search options such as speaker, themes, events, places, or things.

Lemma in Passage section

The Lemma in Passage section of the Passage and Bible Word Study Guides scours your library for every occurrence of the original-language lemma in the passage you want to investigate. For instance, the Greek word “logos” appears in the context of a discussion about John 1:1–even in resources not explicitly about the Gospel of John. Results are categorized according to the dictionary form of the word, and organized by resource.

Reader’s Edition Interlinear

Reading ancient texts in their original languages can be both difficult and stressful, especially if you don’t know all the vocabulary. That’s why Greek and Hebrew Readers are popular tools for assisting students in their acquisition of a new language. Our new Reader’s Edition Interlinear lets you customize any original-language interlinear text according to your needs. Hide words according to frequency, leaving only the words you haven’t learned. Use the Reader’s Edition Interlinear in your language study and adapt it to your ever-changing educational needs.

Corresponding Notes

With Corresponding Notes, you can now see all the notes you’ve attached to biblical texts with reverse interlinears. Take a note on the Greek word Εὐχαριστοῦμεν (eucharistoumen) in your Greek New Testament, and with the Corresponding Notes feature, you’ll see that same note attached to the equivalent translation in your ESV, NIV, NASB, and many other translations.

New Testament Use of the Old Testament Dataset

This dataset lets you search the information revealed in the New Testament Use of the Old Testament interactive. Search for every place a Psalm is cited in Hebrews or every time Matthew references Isaiah. You can even search for specific words or phrases within your results. Find every reference to the Psalms in Hebrews, then find every time “son” appears in the results.

Reported Speech, Speakers, and Addressees for the Deuterocanon

Reported Speech, Speakers, and Addressees for the Deuterocanon provides annotations for everywhere an individual speaks, the contents of that speech, and the person who is being addressed. This data can be visually displayed in your biblical text or searched to find, for instance, everywhere Gabriel speaks within the deuterocanonical literature.

Personal Letters section

Personal letters provide unique insight into the convictions and thought of an author and illuminate the context in which that author lived and wrote. The Personal Letters section in the Factbook provides quick access to these texts. For instance, look up Jonathan Edwards in the Factbook, and find every letter within your library written by Edwards.

Old Testament Propositional Outlines

This final update to the OT Propositional Outlines Visual Filter adds Daniel and the Twelve Prophets. Reformat the biblical text into a flow outline that labels the purpose of individual lines. This visual filter transforms the biblical text (Hebrew or English) so you can see the flow of a passage with main points and indented sub points. The propositional outline exposes lines that indicate all of the key aspects of the structure of the biblical text. You can even hover over any label to see it defined.

With this update, Logos Now subscribers have a propositional outline for every book in the Old Testament.

Israelite Feasts and Sacrifices Dataset

The sacrificial system functioned as an essential element of Israel’s religious life. Both the Old and New Testaments are replete with explicit references and allusions to the sacrificial system. We’ve made it possible to quickly search for passages that describe the purpose for a sacrifice, the type of sacrifice offered, and the thing sacrificed. Find everywhere the Scriptures speak of burnt offerings or everywhere the Day of Atonement occurs.

  1. Love the reader's edition features for the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear. Love that you can set frequencies for showing the English gloss. Pretty great for guys like me who try to keep up with their Greek but are none-the-less rusty.
