Logos 4: Bible Word Study for a Greek Word

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars.

A Logos user recently posted this question at mpseminars.com:

My primary current interest is a thorough, in-depth study of the Greek preposition “pros” (w/accusative). Since it has so many different possible meanings, how do I go about searching the various LXX and NT occurrences – and other available resources – to see what range of alternative meanings might fit in various contexts?

You’ll be very happy to know this type of in-depth original language study is quite easy with Logos Bible Software 4. Here’s one way to tackle this study:

  • Choose Guides | Bible Word Study
  • When the guide opens type this exact text in the Word box: g:pros (the g: alerts Logos that what follows is a transliteration of a Greek word)
  • After typing the text you’ll see a drop down list of Greek words from which you can select the Greek preposition p???
  • Click the Go arrow in the Word box or press the Enter key to generate the report

The report contains numerous sections including:

  • Translation displaying all the occurrences of this Greek word regardless of how it’s translated in the English Bible
  • Septuagint Translation showing all the occurrences in the LXX
  • Grammatical Relationships listing the words and cases used with this preposition including the accusative about which our Logos user originally inquired!
