How to Create a Timeline Slide

A fellow Logos user inquired about this scenario:

I’ve started making use of the Sermon document for the classes I teach. Also, occasionally I utilize the Timeline for my research. Is there a way to make a slide of a Timeline so I can show my class?

First, I’m so glad this user is applying the Sermon document, not just for “official” sermons but also for Bible study lessons. So if you’re a teacher or small group leader, please take advantage of the flexibility the Sermon document offers.

Now to his specific question: yes, a slide can very easily be created from a Timeline!

Check out how simple this is:

  • Open a Sermon document
  • Open the Timeline from the Tools menu, Factbook, resources, etc.

  • Customize the Timeline as you desire using the style (A), Subject (B), and Type (C) drop-down lists and/or Filter box (D)
  • Right-click on the Timeline (E)
  • Select Send to “your Sermon document” (F)
