How to Automatically Look Up Multiple Bible Verses at Once

bible verses

I receive numerous questions about biblical cross-references such as this one:

Almost any Logos resource contains numerous cross-references on a given page. I know I can preview a verse by hovering on the blue hyperlink and I can take my Bible there by clicking it. I’m also aware of creating a Passage List of the references, but then I have to delete the file when I’m finished with it.

What I want is a temporary list of verses so I don’t have to delete a file or click a lot of hyperlinks. Is this possible?

Yes it is with a feature called Power Lookup! Here’s how to create the temporary list of verses the Logos user inquired about:

  • Open a resource to a page containing biblical cross references (A) such as Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary (B) to the article “Jericho” (C)

1

  • Choose Tools | Power Lookup (D)

2

  • Notice as soon as Power Lookup opens it automatically looks up the cross-references visible on the current page in the dictionary(E)

3-2

  • Navigate to a completely different page in the dictionary and Power Lookup instantly displays the verses visible on that page (F)

4

To only look up some verses on the page:

  • Select text, containing cross references, in the dictionary (G)
  • Notice Power Lookup only displays the verses in the selected text (H)

5-2

Please note, Power Lookup is set to follow the active panel. If you have multiple resources open and want Power Lookup to only display verses from a specific resource, then use a link set on the panel menu to link Power Lookup to the desired resource. (I)
