Logos 6: Quickly Mark Up Similar Words in a Passage

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.

A good friend recently emailed me explaining that while studying Philippians in the ESV, he noticed the words persecutor in Philippians 3:6 and press in Philippians 3:12 and Philippians 3:14 were all the same Greek lemma. He then asked if there was an easy way to automatically obtain a lemma count as well as highlight the same lemmas in a passage.

The answer? Yes.

The word list document type provides a lemma count, while a visual filter automatically highlights the text. In this post, however, I want to show you how to utilize a search to quickly highlight the same or similar lemmas in a passage.

  • Open the ESV to Philippians 3:1, where Paul cautions against legalism (A)
  • Right click on the word persecutor in Philippians 3:6 (B)
  • Select the lemma dioko from the context menu (C)
  • Select Search this resource (D)

morris-proctor-quickly-mark-up-similar-words-in-a-passage-1

  • Make sure the verse range is set to an option, such as the New Testament, which includes Philippians (E)

morris-proctor-quickly-mark-up-similar-words-in-a-passage-2

  • Notice that Logos highlights the active search results in a peachy color, which shows (as my friend pointed out) that persecutor in Philippian 3:6 and press in Philippians 3:12 and Philippians 3:14 are all highlighted because they’re all the same Greek lemma (F)

morris-proctor-quickly-mark-up-similar-words-in-a-passage-3

You can, of course, execute additional right-click searches for other lemmas.

As you generate new searches, Logos opens new search panels and highlights those active results in the same peachy color. The result is that you may end up with 10 search panels open (G) and a lot of peachy words in the biblical text (H).

morris-proctor-quickly-mark-up-similar-words-in-a-passage-4

To prevent new search panels from opening:

  • Choose the panel menu on the original search panel (I)
  • Select Send searches here (J)
  • Notice that Logos places a target on the search-panel menu (K)—now when you execute new right-click searches, the new results replace the existing results in the same search panel

morris-proctor-quickly-mark-up-similar-words-in-a-passage-5

The lemma or dictionary form of a word is the same Hebrew or Greek word, regardless of its specific construction. In other words, the lemma may be a verb and searching for that lemma finds all occurrences of the verb whether its tense is present, aorist, subjunctive, etc.

Let’s say, however, that a word has both a noun and verb form. Searching for the lemma will not locate both. A lemma search is restricted to one part of speech.

To locate lemmas that are similar, but not the same, search for the root:

  • Right click the word perfect in Philippians 3:12 (L)
  • Select the root telos from the context menu (M)
  • Select Search this resource (N)

morris-proctor-quickly-mark-up-similar-words-in-a-passage-6

  • Notice that the words perfect (verb in Philippians 3:12), mature (adjective in Philippians 3:15), and end (noun in Philippians 3:19) are all highlighted because they are similar lemmas sharing the same root (O)

morris-proctor-quickly-mark-up-similar-words-in-a-passage-7

Try this root search with joy in Philippians 1:4, and notice how many peachy words appear!

This quick way of searching and temporarily highlighting words in a passage can be very useful in the observation phase of Bible study. Sometimes it reveals themes or repeated subjects such as joygospel, and service in Philippians.

However, please note a couple observations:

  • The same lemma in different contexts may have different meanings.
  • Just because lemmas may share the same root does not automatically imply those lemmas share similar meanings.

Use this post to help with observation, but always move into the interpretation phase of Bible study to answer the questions raised during observation.

Logos 6: Attach the Same Note to Different Places

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.

As you well know, the same biblical events are often mentioned in multiple places in the Bible. For example, Jesus’ prayer in Gethsemane is recorded in Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

Let’s imagine we’re working our way through Mark when we come to the phrase “this cup” in Mark 14:36. We want to record our insights, so we create a note for Mark 14:36. During our research, however, we discover this same phrase also appears in Matthew 26:39 and Luke 22:42. Rather than creating two more separate notes, we can actually attach the same original note to the other two verses with a feature known as an attachment point.

Here’s how to get started with this power-user trick:

First, create the original note:

  • Choose Documents | Notes
  • Name the file something like “Notes on the Gospels” (A)
  • Make sure the view is set to Full (B)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-1

  • Open a Bible to Mark 14:36
  • Right click any word in Mark 14:36 (C)
  • Select Mark 14:36 from the context menu (D)
  • Select Add a note to “Notes on the Gospels” (E)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-2

  • Notice Logos creates, in the file, an individual note named “Mark 14:36” (F) with a Content box underneath it (G)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-3

  • Type your research in the Content box—for example, The demonstrative pronoun “this” implies nearness or being close at hand. (H)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-4

  • Notice Logos places a note indicator in the Bible next to Mark 14:36 (I)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-5

  • Rest the cursor on the indicator to see a pop-up preview of the note content (J)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-6
Next, add the attachment points:

  • Rest the cursor on the name of the note, “Mark 14:36” (K)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-7

  • Click the arrow link that appears to the far right of the note (L)
  • Select Edit attachment points (M)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-8

  • Type Matthew 26:39 in the reference box (N)
  • Select the biblical reference from the drop-down list (O)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-9

  • Type Luke 22:42 in the reference box (P)
  • Select the biblical reference from the drop-down list (Q)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-10

  • Click Done to close the attachment-points box (R)

morris-proctor-attach-the-same-note-to-different-places-11

  • Navigate to Matthew 26:39 and Luke 22:42 in the Bible and notice a note indicator next to each verse (S)

Logos 6: Find Verses in Which a Biblical Person Spoke

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.

Recently, I’ve been studying the life of Hagar in Genesis 16. In verses 7–8, the angel of the Lord found her and asked her two questions:

  • Where have you come from?
  • Where are you going?

These are two very profound questions regarding our direction in life, but we’ll save that discussion for another day. In this post, I simply want to focus on the fact that Logos identifies the angel of the Lord as the speaker of the questions by showing a megaphone icon. I was curious as to where else in Scripture the angel of the Lord spoke, so here’s what I did:

  • Open a Bible, like the ESV or NKJV, to Genesis 16:7 (A)
  • Find the megaphone icon in verse 8 identifying the angel of the Lord as the speaker (B)

morris-proctor-find-verses-in-which-a-biblical-person-spoke-1

  • If the icons are not present:
    • Click the visual filters icon on the Bible’s toolbar (C)
    • Select Speaker labels (D)

morris-proctor-find-verses-in-which-a-biblical-person-spoke-2

  • Right click any word in the questions from the angel of the Lord (E)
  • Select Angel of the Lord SPEAKER (F)
  • Select Search this resource (G)

morris-proctor-find-verses-in-which-a-biblical-person-spoke-3

  • Notice that the search results display all the verses in which the angel of the Lord is identified as the speaker (H)

morris-proctor-find-verses-in-which-a-biblical-person-spoke-4 This simple search makes for rewarding research. Try it with:

  • Isaiah in Matthew 1:23
  • Sadducees in Matthew 22:24
  • Gabriel in Luke 1:28

Logos 6: Opening Multiple Bibles on a Second Monitor

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.

I was recently emailed this question:

I study with a secondary monitor. I’d like to open on that screen a window containing several Bibles all linked together. How do I accomplish that?

This is an excellent question, with the answer utilizing several helpful Logos features. If you use multiple monitors with Logos, give the following steps a try.

First, open multiple Bibles in the same tile in the main Logos window:

  • Type ESV in the command box (A)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-1

  • Press the Enter key, which opens that Bible
  • Type NASB in the command box (B)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-2

  • Press the Enter key
  • Notice that the Bibles are probably in two separate tiles (C)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-3

  • Drag one Bible’s tab next to the other so they are both in the same tile (D)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-4

  • Open any additional Bibles you’d like
  • Makes sure all of your Bibles are in the same tile by dragging their tabs and placing them next to other Bible tabs (E)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-5
Next, place all Bibles in a floating window on the second monitor:

  • Right click any Bible tab (F)
  • Select Open all in a floating window (G)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-6

  • Notice all of the Bibles are now in a window separate from the main Logos window (H)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-7

  • Drag the floating window onto the second monitor

Now, place the Bibles in separate tiles in the floating window:

  • Click and hold a Bible tab in the floating window
  • Drag in and around the window noticing a blue highlighted area (I)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-8

  • Let go of the mouse, and the Bible will be placed in a tile where the blue highlight appeared (J)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-9

  • Repeat the above steps for the remaining Bible tabs so that all the Bibles are in separate tiles (K)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-10
Finally, link the Bible panels:

  • Chose the panel menu on a Bible (L)
  • Select Link set: A (M)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-11

  • Repeat the above steps for the other Bibles so they are all linked to set A (N)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-12

  • Type a reference like Matthew 6:33 in one of the reference boxes (O)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-13

  • Press the Enter key and notice that all of the Bibles move to that verse (P)

morris-proctor-opening-multiple-bibles-on-a-second-monitor-14

As you can probably tell, using a second monitor enlarges your desktop for Bible study. Having your Bibles on another monitor allows you to use the main Logos window for guides, tools, searches, and other resources. You can also link the Bibles to a guide in the main window and the Bibles will follow that guide (or vice versa).

For added power, make sure to save this arrangement as a layout so you don’t have to recreate it in the future.

Logos 6: Study Bibles in the Passage Guide

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.

A fellow Logos user recently presented me with this scenario:

I’m a big fan of the commentaries section in the Passage Guide. I noticed that my study Bibles are included in the section. Is there an easy way to list my study Bibles separately from the commentaries?

The answer is yes! In fact, it can be accomplished with a couple of different methods. What follows is one simple way to achieve what they want.

First, create a collection of study Bibles:

  • Choose Tools | Collections
  • Name the collection Study Bibles (A)
  • Place this in the rule boxtype:“Bible Notes” (Logos groups study Bibles and a few miscellaneous resources in the Type called Bible Notes) (B)
  • Drag any resources you wish to exclude from this collection from the Resulting Collection list to the Minus these resources section (C)

morris-proctor-study-bibles-in-the-passage-guide-1

  • Close the Collections panel

Next, generate a Passage Guide report:

  • Choose Guides | Passage Guide
  • Type a reference in the box, like John 1:1 (D)

morris-proctor-study-bibles-in-the-passage-guide-2

  • Press the Enter key to generate the report

Now, select Study Bibles in the Commentaries section:

  • Rest the cursor on the commentaries section title bar (E)
  • Click the Settings link that appears to the right (F)

morris-proctor-study-bibles-in-the-passage-guide-2.5

  • Select Study Bibles from the drop-down list (G)

morris-proctor-study-bibles-in-the-passage-guide-3

  • Notice only study Bibles now appear in the list! (H)

morris-proctor-study-bibles-in-the-passage-guide-4

With this method, selecting Study Bibles from the Settings list is necessary for each Passage Guide report. You can, however, create a custom template on the Guides menu to permanently add the Study Bibles section to it.

For more in-depth discussion about all the Bible study guides as well as custom templates, place your pre-order for the new Logos 6 Training Manual: Volumes 1 and 2.

Logos 6: Create Quick Collections to Improve Searching

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 Camp Logos, I often tell students that the challenge with Logos is not too little information, but too much information. For example, managing the results coming at us when we search all of our resources at once can be a steep hill to climb.

One secret to effective searching is creating multiple collections (user-created groupings of books used primarily for searching) and then only searching one collection at a time. At Camp Logos, I’ll encourage you to create two major types of collections:

  • Subject-matter collections, like history books or theology books
  • Author collections, like Tozer books or Piper books

By proactively creating these collections and searching only one at a time, you’ll retrieve information in more manageable portions.

Let’s imagine, however, that we forgot to create a collection, but we find ourselves in the midst of study only wanting to examine ethics books or resources written by Alfred Edersheim. In times like these, we can utilize quick collections in Logos 6.

For example, let’s imagine we’re studying sanctification in 1 Corinthians 1:30:

  • Open a Bible, like the ESV, to 1 Corinthians 1:30 (A)
  • Right click the word sanctification (B)
  • Select from the context menu the English word sanctification (C)
  • Select Search all resources (D)

morris-proctor-create-quick-collections-to-improve-searching-1

Notice that the search panel opens with thousands of hits, which is overwhelming (E). We then decide we just want to search ethics books, but we haven’t previously created that collection.

So try this:

  • Click the resources-to-search drop-down list, which currently says All Resources (F)

morris-proctor-create-quick-collections-to-improve-searching-2

  • Type this simple collection rule in the Find box: subject:ethics (G)
  • Select the line indicating the number of resources matching the rule (H)

morris-proctor-create-quick-collections-to-improve-searching-3

  • Notice that Logos automatically searches just those resources, which produces fewer hits (I)
  • Click the resources-to-search drop-down list again (J)

morris-proctor-create-quick-collections-to-improve-searching-4

  • Type this collection rule in the Find box: author:edersheim (K)
  • Select the line indicating the number of resources matching the rule (L)

morris-proctor-create-quick-collections-to-improve-searching-5

  • Notice again that Logos automatically searches just those resources (M)

morris-proctor-create-quick-collections-to-improve-searching-6

All of the rules we employ to create official collections on the Tools menu work here in the Find box to create quick collections! These quick collections are temporary and are no substitute for official collections, but they can be very helpful to streamline searching on the fly.

Logos 6: Display Parallel Passages from the Gospels

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.

I remember years ago preparing a sermon on Jesus’ Gethsemane prayer. During my study, I discovered that all four Gospel writers spoke of this event.

Since at the time I didn’t own a harmony of the Gospels (a book presenting in parallel columns the same event from various gospels) here’s what I did. I started off turning the pages in my Bible back and forth from Matthew to Mark to Luke to John and then back to Matthew. After a few paper cuts, I devised a better plan. I photocopied the Gethsemane verses from each Gospel and taped them together side by side. I made my own harmony!

That homemade harmony severed its purpose for that message, but thankfully today in Logos 6 there’s a much improved method—the Parallel Gospel Reader.

Here’s one way to use it:

  • Select the tools menu (A)
  • Click All interactive resources (B)

morris-proctor-display-parallel-passages-from-the-gospels-1

  • Click Parallel Gospel Reader (this interactive resource is only available in Logos 6 Gold and higher) (C)

morris-proctor-display-parallel-passages-from-the-gospels-2

  • Select a Bible, such as the English Standard Version, from the drop-down list (this Bible will be used to display the verses) (D)
  • Select a harmony from the drop-down list, such as A Harmony of the Gospels by A.T. Robertson (E)
  • Notice the table of contents displaying events in the life of Jesus (F)

morris-proctor-display-parallel-passages-from-the-gospels-3

  • Jump to the Gethsemane prayer using either of these methods:
    • Scroll to section 152 (G), or
    • Type a reference from the event, such as John 18:1, in the reference box (H) and press the Enter key

morris-proctor-display-parallel-passages-from-the-gospels-4

  • Click the section title to display the verses (I)
  • Notice the accounts of the same event from different Gospel writers

morris-proctor-display-parallel-passages-from-the-gospels-5

I encourage you to carefully read the various accounts of Jesus’ prayer in the garden several times. As you do, you’ll see that Matthew, Mark, and Luke each present different details about the agonizing prayer. Matthew uses words like troubledvery sorrowful even unto death, and fell on his face. Mark adds greatly distressed and Abba. Luke writes knelt down, angel from heaven strengthening him, and his sweat became like great drops of blood. All three refer to this cup.

By comparing and contrasting these various accounts, you’ll discover this agonizing prayer was not a brief, easy time of reelection as is often portrayed; this was a spiritual wrestling match!

So as you’re studying the Gospels, forget the paper and tape, but don’t forget this helpful interactive resource that quickly displays parallel passages from various harmonies of the Gospels.

Logos 6: Instantly Create High-Quality Slides

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.

Years ago in a Christian education class in college, my professor commented, “If overhead projectors were available during the time of Christ, he would have used one.” His point was that Jesus incorporated visuals in his teaching. Think about just a few examples:

  • “Consider the lilies of the field . . .” —Matthew 6:28
  • “Show me a denarius. Whose likeness and inscription does it have? . . .” —Luke 20:24
  • “I am the vine; you are the branches. . . .” —John 15:5

A well-placed image can communicate volumes. As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Today during our preaching and teaching sessions we employ visual media slides and projectors to enhance a message.

Knowing the popularity of such visuals, Logos 6 offers a tool that makes fast work of creating slides based on text or images from our Logos resources or even just text we input manually! This tool, Visual Copy, prepares slides suitable for use in Proclaim Church Presentation Software or PowerPoint, or even as standalone graphics.

Try this:

  • Open any Bible to Joshua 1:8 (A)
  • Right click any word within the verse (B)
  • Select from the context menu Joshua 1:8 (C)
  • Select Visual Copy (D)

morris-proctor-instantly-create-professional-slides-1

  • Notice the Visual Copy tool opens with Joshua 1:8 already placed on a slide (E)
  • Select, if desired, a different template from the left sidebar (F)
  • Select an aspect ratio (G)
  • Select:
    • Copy to place the image on the clipboard, which will then be ready to paste into a document (H)
    • Save as to save the slide as an image file (I)
    • Send to to export it to Proclaim or PowerPoint (J)
    • An icon to share it (K)

morris-proctor-instantly-create-professional-slides-2You’ll also discover that Visual Copy appears on the context menu from within any resource. For example, right click some selected text in a resource, then select Visual Copy from the context menu to create a slide with the text you just selected!

Logos 6: Locate Verses for a Character Study

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.

A character study is a very rewarding type of Bible study. A character study is finding all mentions of a person in the Bible and then examining the characteristics of his or her life.

The challenge to this method of research is locating all biblical references to a person! That challenge just got easier with Logos 6. Let’s imagine we want to investigate Barnabas throughout the New Testament. Our research begins with listing of all mentions of the man. Try this:

  • Open a Bible, like the ESV
  • Navigate to a passage of Scripture which mentions the man Barnabas, such as Acts 4:36 (A)
  • Right click on a word referring to Barnabas, such as Joseph—his real name (B)
  • Select from the content menu Barnabas Person (C)
  • Select a search option, such as Search this resource (inline) (D)

morris-proctor-locate-verses-for-a-character-study-1

  • Notice only the verses referencing Barnabas now appear in the resource panel (E)

morris-proctor-locate-verses-for-a-character-study-2 As you move through the Inline Search hits, you’ll see that Barnabas is not only referred to by name, but also as good man, apostlecompanion, and more.

We have just combined the referent dataset with a right-click Inline Search to quickly locate all the times a person is mentioned in the Bible. A thorough examination of these verses will now yield some encouraging insights about this man of God in the early church!

Logos 6: How to Search the Atlas

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.

Knowing the geographical context in which a biblical event took place can certainly aid our interpretation. For example:

  • What’s the significance of the phrase “he had to pass through Samaria” in John 4:4?
  • Does the location of Laodicea impact Jesus’ description of the church as “lukewarm” in Revelation 3:16?

To assist us in discovering the geographical context of a biblical passage, Logos 6 offers a brand new Atlas tool with scores of new maps. These new maps are tagged according to both biblical references and topics (biblical people, places, things, and events). The multiple tags on a map are why links to maps appear all throughout the software, such as in the Passage Guide (A), in the Topic Guide (B), and in the Factbook (C).

morris-proctor-how-to-search-the-atlas-1-passage-guide

morris-proctor-how-to-search-the-atlas-2-topic-guide

morris-proctor-how-to-search-the-atlas-3-factbook

You can also, however, manually search the Atlas yourself for just the right map. Try this:

  • Choose Tools | Atlas
  • Make sure the left sidebar is visible by clicking the map list icon (D)
  • Remove any text that is in the search box in the sidebar (E)

morris-proctor-how-to-search-the-atlas-4-empty-search-box

  • Type a query in the search box, such as:
    • A biblical reference, like John 4 (F)
    • A person, like Jesus
    • A place, like Jerusalem
    • A thing, like temple
    • An event, like feeds 5,000
  • Select the desired item from the drop-down list (G)

morris-proctor-how-to-search-the-atlas-5-query

  • Notice maps corresponding to the query appear in the list (H)
  • Select a map to load it in the display area (I)
