Find What You Need, without Really Trying
Run a search without leaving your Bible
Easily study phrases like “righteousness of God” or even original language terms like apocalyptō. Simply highlight the word or phrase, right-click, and select Inline search to find a word or phrase in your Bible (or any open resource) without having to open a new search panel. Logos displays the results in your open Bible. You can choose to view the results within a verse, paragraph, or pericope.
Ready, search, GO!
Just type a word or passage in the GO box, and Logos opens a list of study options. Pressing Shift + Enter launches a search for everything in your library containing the word or passage.
Find the verse you can’t quite recall
Let’s say you know that somewhere the Bible talks about being able to do everything in Christ but can’t remember the exact wording—or you can only remember part of a verse or a word or two. Logos can help! Simply type the words or phrases you do remember, like “I am able to do everything in Christ,” and Logos delivers all the verses that potentially match in your preferred Bible translation
Let Logos do the heavy lifting
Want to know every time any resource in your library addresses the word translated as “authority” in Matthew 7:29? Right-click any word or phrase to open the Context menu and tell Logos what you want to find. In just three clicks, Logos runs a complex search for you.
Supercharge your search with search templates
With premade search templates, you can find specific things, like every time “God” talks to “Moses” about the “law.” Search for people and places, addressees, cross-references, and even that one verse you can’t quite find.
Dive deep with morphological searching
Logos displays its power with detailed morphological search capabilities. For example, Ephesians 2:8 is clear that salvation is by grace, but ambiguity exists in the relationships of other words in the verse. Logos finds similar morphological constructions, so you can study every time a genitive noun is followed by a conjunction and a relative pronoun.
Search for meaning, not just morphological data
Need to find instances where a word carries the meaning of “justice”? The detailed tagging in Logos can help! The Sense option in the Context menu will locate instances where the meaning of “justice” occurs, even when the word is not there. The Bible Sense Lexicon organizes lemmas by their use in their original context, making it easy to search for words with related meaning in all the biblical languages.
Search with filters to find anything in the Bible
The Bible Browser provides a huge array of filters to show only what you’ve selected, like every time Jesus uses figurative language to talk about the Holy Spirit, even if Jesus is only referenced with a pronoun. It’s a useful tool for searching by categories, especially when you want to find relationships between different categories.
Quickly search particular resource titles or types
Find references to being “filled with the Spirit” in all English Sermons in just a few clicks by launching a search from your library. You can search a single resource or a group of resources.
Explore historical Church documents
Logos has organized many of the Church’s reflections and resolutions in a collection of historical Church documents. These classic reference works provide insight into nearly 2,000 years of theological and moral debates. With Logos, you can quickly search these collections for any topic or Scripture passage and uncover a wealth of information.
