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.
The reverse interlinear is, in my humble opinion, one of Logos’ greatest contributions to modern Bible study. This feature, which connects a Bible’s English translation to its original text, allows us to investigate Greek and Hebrew words even if we don’t have original-language training.
With the recent release of Logos Bible Software 5.1, a small enhancement made the reverse interlinear even better. Here’s how to use it:
- Open an English Bible containing the reverse interlinear option, such as the ESV, LEB, NKJV, or NASB.
- Click the Interlinear icon on the Bible’s toolbar to open the reverse interlinear pane at the bottom of the panel (A).
- Navigate to a location in the Bible, such as Colossians 3:16 (B).
- Click a word in the biblical text, such as dwell (ESV) (C).
- Notice that the reverse interlinear pane jumps to that word (D).
