How to Find Every Time Peter Addresses Jesus

A fellow Logos user recently presented me with the following scenario:

Peter, of course, is traditionally labeled the outspoken apostle. He spoke to Jesus where others didn’t (at least based on what we have recorded). How can I find the verses in which Peter directly addressed Jesus?

Great question! And actually Logos provides several ways to answer this inquiry, but today I’ll focus on just one: the Interactive resource called Speaking to God.

In a nutshell, this Interactive contains all the verses in which verbal communication with God (Father or Son) appears. This interaction is then labeled with numerous facets or filters that we utilize with a simple point and click method.

Let’s take a look:

  • Choose Tools | Speaking to God
  • Select the Bible from which you wish to display the results (A)
  • Notice in the left sidebar the facets or filters that have been applied to the verbal interaction with God (B)
  • Click in the Speaker section Peter (C)

  • Click in the Addressee section Jesus (D)

  • Notice on the right the verses in which Peter speaks directly to Jesus! (E)

To discover information about the contents of this Interactive, click the About link on the resource’s toolbar. (F)

For more detailed instruction on faceted interactives, please check out the Logos 7 Training Manuals Volumes 1-3 in print or digital.

You can also attend an upcoming Camp Logos in Tampa or Akron for live hands-on training!

    Well I could not get very far on this. Under my TOOLS there is no such option”Speaking with God”. Not sure what I am doing wrong,

    I have Logos 6–do these instructions apply to that version? I do not see tools | speaking to God. I also do not see anywhere in this post any reference to which version of Logos this is good for.

    Morris. Is there a way to find everytime there is eating / a meal in the New Testament? I think there is a lot of activity that goes on around a table or just eating.
