A fellow Logos user recently made the following inquiry:
I thoroughly enjoy using the Passage Guide and try to take advantage of the wealth of research in each section. I am stumped, however, trying to figure out how the verses in the Cross-References section are generated. Can you shed some light on this?
I hope I can. In short, the verses are the inline cross-references found in our Bibles for the passage for which the Passage Guide is generated.
Let’s take a look at a specific example:
- Choose Guides | Passage Guide
- Type John 10:10 in the Reference box (A)
- Press the Enter key to generate the report
- Expand the Cross-References section (B)
- Notice above the horizontal gray line are simple links to cross-reference resources such as The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge (C)
- Below the horizontal gray line are imbedded cross-references found in your Bibles for John 10:10 (D)
- Open, for example, the following Bibles to John 10:10 and compare the imbedded cross-references to the verses found in the Cross-References section in the Passage Guide:
– New American Standard Bible (E)
– English Standard Version (F)
– The Holman Christian Standard Bible (G)
- Click the link Open 11 Passages in “Preferred Bible” to display only these verses in a Bible panel (H)
Jumping from one cross-reference to another is a favorite way for many people to study the Bible, so this one section in the Passage Guide is a great enhancement for that type of study!
