How to Look Up Multiple Cross References at the Same Time

A question from a new Logos user provides an opportunity to remind you of an oldie but a goodie:

I’m new to Logos and I enjoy studying the Bible for my own growth. As a part of my daily Bible reading, I like tracking down cross references in the biblical text. Is there a way to look up a lot of cross references at once without having to hover over each one individually? 

The answer is yes when we use a Logos tool that has been around for a while: Power Lookup.

  • Notice Power Lookup opens in a panel on the right automatically displaying the text of cross references embedded in the biblical text (C)

  • Select text in the Bible (D) to limit Power Lookup to just the references in the selection (E)
