Locate the “One Another” Admonitions

Find one another passages
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 a recent Camp Logos, an attendee asked me this question during a break: “I’m doing a study of the ‘one another’s in Paul’s letters. How can I easily find all the verses with this phrase along with the admonitions preceding them like, love, encourage, and so on?”

Even though there are several ways to accomplish the goal, I tried to keep it simple, so here’s what I told him:

  • Open the Search panel by click the magnifying glass icon in the upper left of the program (A)


  • Select Bible as the search type (B)
  • Select Pauline Epistles from the verse-range drop down list (C)
  • Select the Bible(s) to search from the drop down list (D)
  • Place within double quotes the phrase one another in the Find box: “one another” (E)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the search results (F)
  • Select Analysis as the view with which to display the results (G)


  • Notice Logos creates a spreadsheet with the results (H)
  • Right click on any column header (I)
  • Select at least Reference and Previous Context from the menu (J)


  • Click the column header Reference to display the results in canonical order (K)


  • Drag the column header Previous Context to the blank area at the top of the spreadsheet (Mac user: hold down the Option key as you drag the header) (L)
  • Notice Logos groups the results according to the Previous Context appearing before the phrase one another (M)


  • Right click on an arrow to the left of any search result (N)
  • Select Collapse all (O)


You can now easily see all the admonitions appearing before the phrase one another such as: (P)

  • Greet
  • Encourage
  • Be kind to
  • Love
  • etc.


Have fun with this Analysis view. You can arrange the results most any way you like to easily dig deep into the Word!

How to Get the Most out of Logos Features

Logos Feature Expansion Collections

What’s your favorite Logos 6 feature? Ancient Literature tool? The Factbook? Textual Variants?

There is a smart way to make your favorite features even more powerful, and 1,063+ Logos users have already started enhancing their libraries with these exciting new collections. They’re called the Feature Expansion Collections.

We know it’s hard to build a great library effectively, so we’ve hand-curated a number of incredible resource collections to maximize the performance of Logos 6’s features. Brandon Rappuhn, one of Logos’ product strategists, has spent hours hand-selecting these resources, so I sat down with him to talk about these exciting new products. All of these expansion collections are available on  Logos.com. There, you can choose the expansion collection that fits your interests, or you can get them all. Plus, if you happen to already own any of these resources, you’ll save big with Dynamic Pricing. 

You can watch our interview as part of this episode of Faithlife Today, or jump to the transcript below.

Simon: So tell me, what’s so special about the Feature Expansion Collections?

Brandon: We’ve always had customers asking, “How can I best build out the features that I love in Logos? Which books do I need to add to my library to ‘fill it up’?” So we created these collections to answer that question. We want to make it easy for you to get all the resources that make the features you love even better.

Simon:  Who did you have in mind while creating these collections?

Brandon: We were thinking especially about the specialists—those who really depend on specific features in Logos, like linguists, who depend on the grammars section of the exegetical guide. Or pastors, who love to look through the Sermon Finder in the Passage Guide. So we created these collections to really bring out those features for those people.

Simon:  Is there a favorite collection of yours?

Brandon: Well, there are a couple. But specifically, I love the Systematic Theologies Expansion Collection (183 vols.) because I really like studying theology myself. In this collection—which we just created in the wake of Logos Now—we added a bunch of new resources that we’ve never sold before. They were put into production just for those who purchase this collection.

Brandon: We’re also doing the same thing for the Sermon Finder Expansion Collection (236 vols.) (17,000+ sermons). Even though the Sermon Finder tool has been around for a while, we decided to put in a few new resources that we’ve never sold before specifically for those who buy this collection.

Simon: Is it right that the Sermon Finder Collection has over 17,000 sermons in it?

Brandon: Yeah, it actually has quite a bit more than that.

Simon: Talk about impressive, let’s talk about the Master Expansion Collection. What makes the Master Expansion Collection so exciting, and why is it such a great deal?

Brandon: It’s not that it just has all the resources of all the other expansion collections, but it puts them on sale at an even bigger discount. So, if you were to add up the retail price of all the individual books that make each individual expansion collections, the price we sell it at is about 70% off of the combined price of what those retail price is.

The Master Expansion Collection (600+ vols.) takes it to the next level at about 75% off. So, if you want one or more of the regular collections, the Master Expansion Collection is a great way get all of the feature expansion collections if you use more than one of Logos 6’s tools.

Simon: Did we talk about Dynamic Pricing?

Brandon: Yes, Dynamic Pricing is available in all of these collections. What that means is you can get any them without paying for resources that you already own. And, if you have a high-level base package, you’re already getting big discounts.

Simon: Whoa, that’s super exciting. Thanks for telling us all about it.

Brandon: Thanks, Simon.

Reveal the Worldview of an Ancient Hebrew


The Bible is composed of disparate pieces, each with their own author, audience, and purpose. It can be hard to come to full understanding of Scripture when we focus on each piece separately. Only when we step back to see the wider context can we begin to understand the mosaic of Scripture.

What happens, though, when we encounter a passage that doesn’t fit into our understanding of the full picture of the Bible? Dr. Michael Heiser helps us understand these difficult or troublesome passages in his new book, The Unseen Realm.

The Surprising History of Calvin’s Institutes


John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion is among the most important works of theology in church history. It’s a central text for Protestantism, especially the Reformed tradition, and continues to be read and referenced widely today, just as it was in Calvin’s day.  But it was a long and winding journey that led to the version of the Institutes we now know.

Save on the Zondervan Counterpoints Series This Month Only!

Zondervan-TN_SALE_Blog640x349 Copy

Creation. Baptism. The end times. Sometimes it feels like there are as many perspectives on these controversial issues as there are Christians. Sorting through them all—and coming to your own conclusions—can be overwhelming.  How do you separate the major theological points of view from fringe beliefs? Where can you find authoritative, introductory treatments? And how do leading thinkers engage with one another on these important topics?

The Unseen Realm: Now Available!

unseen realm

The threads of the unseen realm are woven throughout Scripture. They begin before creation, can be seen throughout the Old Testament, and have major implications for Jesus’ mission in the New Testament. However, because of our modern perspective, these threads are often overlooked, ignored, or misunderstood.
