Find All the Women Mentioned in Paul’s Letters

IMG_1570_620x413Today’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 recently received this question from a Logos user: I am trying to find Paul’s co-laborers who are women. Is there a way to search just for the women in Paul’s letters? Excellent question! Happily the answer is “yes” with the Concordance tool found in Logos Now.

If you’re not familiar with Logos Now please check it out because, in my humble opinion, the Concordance feature by itself makes Logos Now a worthy investment. Among many other things, the Concordance tool can build master lists of people in Scripture. Then we can filter those lists according to numerous characteristics including gender! If you are a subscriber to Logos Now, try this out:

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.

Do You Really Need to Know Hebrew?
