Logos 5: Passage List of Red-Letter Verses

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 a Logos user asked:

Moe, is it possible to print just the red-letter verses (words of Christ) from a Bible?

I didn’t have an immediate answer, so I told him I’d have to get back to him. After a bit of thought, I discovered at least one possibility that I’d like to pass along to you:

  • From the ESV New Testament, I compiled a Passage List of all the verses containing red-letter text.
  • I exported that Passage List as a text file. You can use it to create your own Passage List:

  • Choose Documents | Passage List (if you’re using Logos 4, choose File | Passage List).
  • Name the file something like Red-Letter Verses in the ESV NT (A).
  • Click Add (B).
  • Select … a file (C).

Research Genesis More Efficiently Than Ever

lexham-bible-guides-genesis-collectionNearly every theme in the Bible has a parallel in the book of Genesis—sin, guilt, pride, family, law, worship, God’s promises, and God’s will. Genesis portrays what it means to be human and how God wants us to live as his image-bearers. It recounts the despair present on earth and the hope God offers to all of creation. It explains the very personal relationship between Creator and creation. To truly understand the rest of the Bible, it helps to understand Genesis—the foundation for the rest of Scripture.

Bible study begins with Genesis

We don’t always have the time to research Genesis at a scholarly depth. We may have ministry priorities that depend on such knowledge, but other commitments won’t allow us the time to delve as deep into it as we would like. That’s why we began the Lexham Bible Guide series with Genesis. Capitalizing on the expertise of our research team—many of whom have presented academic lectures on Genesis—we can offer you the information you need, in a few clicks, while making it easy for you to go even deeper when you have the time.

The Ascension of Christ and Spirit of Pentecost

Christ's AscensionIn the Orthodox Church, the 40th day after Easter is celebrated as the day marking Christ’s ascension into heaven. The emphasis of this commemoration is our assurance not only that Jesus is truly the Son of God, but that he has not left his disciples without hope.

In the Gospel reading for this Great Feast, the Scriptures record:

“Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, ‘Peace to you. . . . Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.’

And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God.” —Luke 24:36–53 (NKJV)
