Logos 4: Create a Block Diagram of a Biblical Passage

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 seminars and provides many training materials.

mp|seminars Tips

One of the most common questions I get asked during the breaks at Camp Logos is, “How do I create a sentence diagram?” After a little discussion, I discover the Logos user normally doesn’t want a traditional line diagram (like we learned in middle school), but a block diagram that allows us to see the general thought structure of a biblical passage.  Let’s say as we’re reading Philippians 4:9 we’d like to see an “outline” of the text, at least as it appears in English. You’ll discover from what follows that this is a relatively easy (and painless) process in Logos:

  • Choose File | New | Sentence Diagram.
  • Name the diagram if you like.
  • Click Insert Passage.
  • Type a biblical reference in the Reference box like Phil 4.9 (the passage can be as short or long as you prefer).
  • Select a Bible like the ESV from the drop down list (a literal translation like the ESV, NASB, KJV, NKJV, or LEB works best for diagrams).
  • Select Text Flow diagram from the drop down list (this selection produces a block diagram as opposed to Line diagram which creates a traditional sentence diagram).
  • Select No alternate from the drop down list (you can of course select an alternate line of text if you wish).
  • Click Insert, which places the passage in the diagramming area
  • Click and hold the word learned.”
  • Drag the word learned” down one line and to the left so that it appears underneath the phrase what you have” (notice all of the text following learned” comes with you).
  • Click and hold the word and.”
  • Drag the word and” down one line and to the left so that it appears underneath the word learned” (notice all of the text following and” comes with you).
  • Repeat the above steps until you have created the block or text flow diagram you desire.



You can now choose the Sentence Diagram panel menu and choose Print / Export to create a hard or electronic copy of this diagram.

See? I told you it would be easy. The key to making the block diagram is to select Text Flow diagram from the drop down list when you initially insert the passage.

I can’t begin to tell you how many of these I created on paper as I prepared sermons before Logos came along. Enjoy the technology with which the Lord has blessed our generation!

This is one of the many features covered in Camp Logos 2 Live, our DVD set on how to customize your Logos Bible Software. Camp Logos 2 Live is shipping the first week of December, but you can still pre-order at the discounted price.

A Case for Theological Journals

If you have spent any amount of time doing serious Bible study or research you have inevitably run into references to articles contained in theological journals. These journals are on the cutting edge of biblical scholarship, containing fresh research, insight into key theological topics, and exegesis of the Biblical text.

But too often when you want to take your studies further, you find that these journals are housed in some far-off Bible college or university. And if you wanted to order a subscription to a specific journal you’ll soon find that you may have to put off eating for a month–some of these journals can cost well over a hundred dollars for just four issues! But do not despair! With the Theological Journal Library, vol. 14 now on Pre-Pub, Logos has brought those distant libraries filled with theological journals right into the comfort of your own home.

The Need for Theological Journals

Where a Bible commentary may take up to 10 years or more to be published, journal articles tend to be published more quickly. Also, with commentaries there is often a set page limit that constrains the author to stick to the big picture while theological journals step in and go deeper into textual issues.

This freedom keeps theological journals on the cutting edge of scholarship. Often this scholarship is more specialized, focusing on issues of grammar, cultural background, or theology of a particular passage or passages of Scripture. Having access to theological journals in your Logos library is like bringing a research library into your personal place of study and allowing you to study the Bible in a more enriching manner.

Theological Journals in Logos 4

If you are a Logos user, then you know how incredible it is to have a software program that searches your entire library in a matter of seconds. In the same way you search the Bible for a particular word, phrase, or verse, you can also just as quickly search through your theological journals for any reference or verse. And when you click on a Scripture reference in your journal, Logos quickly navigates to that Bible verse. This speeds up your study and gives you more time to research—and who doesn’t want that?

Considering the amount of scholarship contained in theological journals and the speed and power of Logos 4, Theological Journal Library, vol. 14 is an invaluable addition to your library. And with the incredible Pre-Pub price of $49.95, now is the time to add it to your library and take your Bible study to an even deeper level.  And while you’re at it, check out some of these other journals that Logos has to offer!

Apostolic Fathers: Clement’s Use of the Bible

More Information on the Apostolic Fathers InterlinearOne reason I wanted to make the Apostolic Fathers Interlinear was because the writers of these documents used the Old Testament, New Testament, and even some portions of apocryphal/deuterocanonical books. These guys knew Scripture, and they used Scripture (and some related writings) in their writings.

Clement of Rome (First Clement is attributed to him, Second Clement is traditionally attributed to him though most today do not view Clement as its author) is exceptional in his use of the OT and NT. He uses large portions of Scripture to the point where they can even be useful for text-critical purposes. Did you know that 1Clem 18 is a quotation of Psalm 51, and that it largely reflects the text of the Septuagint as we have it today? And that there is a large chunk of Isaiah 53 in 1Clem 16? And that Clement also quotes from Proverbs and even Job? And that some portions sound like they’re coming straight from Hebrews (e.g. 1Clem 36) and that he probably has familiarity with some of Paul’s epistles—especially First Corinthians?

Further, there is a simply incredible prayer in 1Clem 59–61. You have to read it. Really. And trust me, it reads even better if you read it aloud!

And let’s not forget Second Clement (also known as “An Early Christian Homily”) which is essentially a sermon that uses portions of Isaiah 54 as its primary text. This is the earliest Christian sermon available outside of the New Testament, and  you can read it. Really! And it is awesome from its very start.

New Testament in the Apostolic FathersThis is all well and good, but why an interlinear and not a translation if I’m interested in folks really using this stuff? Well, I wanted to make something that folks who had some Greek and who find themselves using lexicons like BDAG could use to help them into the Greek text of this secondary material. Something people could search for Greek words and phrases, and see how they were used outside of the New Testament. Working on the Apostolic Fathers Interlinear was a lot of work, but it was also incredibly rewarding. I hope you’ll find it similarly helpful in your studies.

Here’s an extra bonus tip: If you’re interested in the Apostolic Fathers’ use of the New Testament, Logos has a neat book published in the early 1900’s called The New Testament in the Apostolic Fathers.  This book lists possible quotations and allusions to the New Testament in most of the works of the Apostolic Fathers (Barnabas, Didache, I Clement, Ignatius, Polycarp, Hermas, and II Clement). It is very helpful for looking into possible use of the NT in the Apostolic Fathers.

Get Influential Classics by Herman Witsius

At the age of 15, Herman Witsius began attending the University of Utrecht and at age 21, Witsius was ordained in the ministry. Soon after, Witsius served at several churches as the pastor and at several Universities as professor of divinity.

And now, several of Witsius’ titles are available in the Herman Witsius Collection (11 vols.) for just $89.95 on Pre-Pub.

Included in the Herman Witsius Collection is his most popular work, The Economy of the Covenants between God and Man, a systematic exploration of Old Testament law, New Testament grace, the grace of God in both covenants, and how Christ fulfills each covenant. The Economy of the Covenants between God and Man is considered one of the core writings that helped develop covenant theology. Other important works in this collection include his 2-volume commentary on the Apostles’ Creed, Sacred Dissertations on the Lord’s Prayer, and other essays on a variety of topics.

Author and theologian J. I. Packer said Witsius was a “master Dutch Reformed theologian, learned, wise, mighty in the Scriptures, practical . . . on paper he was calm, judicious, systematic.”

Biblical scholar John Gill stated that Witsius was a “writer not only eminent for his great talents and particularly solid judgments, rich imagination, and elegance of composition, but for a deep, powerful, and evangelism spirituality, and savor of godliness.”

Be sure to pick up the Herman Witsius Collection (11 vols.) while it’s on Pre-Pub for just $89.95!
